Exterior and Installation Notes Well I haven't Updated the page in a while so I thought that I would add some new pictures of the changes recently. ... Show more I've moved to the mountains and as such we like to hit the back trails sometimes. The truck was recently upgraded with Cooper Discoverer STT mud terains. Along with the new tires I added slotted and cross drilled rotors and new metallic pads as had some problems with the origional rotors. Below is a description of the Audio install, followed by stock pictures of the truck and then pictures of the upgrades. Since I plan on keeping the truck after school at least as a third vehicle I decided to step up the install a little bit from my previous versions. Most of the equipment will be the same, except the addition of a new SoundStream Amp and a set of component speakers. I also changed out the Subs I was using in my old Blazer, 2 12" Visonik DV6 Subs, for 2 new 10" Visonik competition series subs. While I loved the old Subs, I would not have been able to keep them without cutting through the bed and installing the subs in the truck box (Which the Wifey definetly wouldn't let me do) :0(Enough of my Blabbing! On to the important pictures of the ride alteration.Below is a Picture of the truck right after my wife and I purchased it: Show Less
Phase I Installation
Below is a picture of the dash torn apart. The second picture is the wiring behind the dash. The black wire running to the StreetWires... Show more block is the behind dash ground I setup for the CD Changer, CB and AUX input for my Pioneer head unit.
The first picture shows the stock center tray in the dash. Since I find this rather useless I decided to make a new fiberglass tray, and chop it up to install a new PS2 in the dash. The second picture shows the stock engine compartment with no alterations.
The picture on the left shows the stock battery tray removed. The Maglite is pointing at the location that the 4 Gauge power wire for my amps, and the 8 gauge power wire for the secondary cab fuse holder is running through the firewall. In the second picture you can see me pulling the trim pieces around the carpet of the truck. The 4 gauge wire is run through the stock wire trough on the passenger side.
Here in the first picture you can see the new location of the secondary fuse holder that I setup. A new acrylic panel was constructed and painted black on the back to house six position fuse block for my CD Changer, Pioneer AUX unit, Cobra CB and any other accessories such as neons etc. The second picture shows the stock dash and center console in shambles.
This picture shows me running the 4 Gauge along the side of the truck to the backseat area. After adding a LMI Hi Rider seat lift I will begin construction on the box to hold the amps and two 10s in a sealed box.
-March 4th Install -
Today I worked on permanetly installing the Sirius satelite radio receiver my wife bought me for Christmas. I hardwired the receiver to a relay running off of the accessory power since I always forget to turn it off when I leave the vehicle. Tomorrow I will try to get some pictures of everything that is currently installed.
The picture on the left shows the relay being wired before being mounted. The right is the relay after it has been mounted behind the dash.
Here are two pictures of the receiver installed beside the steering wheel for easy access.
