just disconnect the battery for an hour

when you start it up it will begin to learn the new parameters

Well, last Wednesday was my birthday and my parents got me a new deck and 4 new door speakers and my girlfriend got me a light bar that will arrive sometime this afternoon. Will post updates on each installation! I also ordered my lift kit and that should arrive soon!

I mounted the bar and lights today and attempted to wire them but I'm a newbie and used too much wire but was able to barely touch the battery with it and the lights worked great! Just need to re-wire it all shortly, and this time should work without flaw because I know how to do it haha! And the lift kit should be here Monday or so. Can't wait!

Sorry for lack of updates, I got my lift kit in yesterday but it's missing 2 shocks however I called the Rough Country customer support and in 5 minutes I was able to hang up with the issue resolved. Excellent customer service. Shocks will be here Tuesday. I also installed my light bar yesterday and wired up my KC HiLites Daylighters I picked up! Here's some pics

I also picked up a Pioneer DEH-X6500BT deck and 4 Pioneer TS-A1675R door speakers they work amazingly and sound so much better than my blown stock speakers. The deck also looks so much better than the stock one.

Last update for the day. My lift kit came in! However it is missing 2 shocks but I called Rough Country and in to time it all they said they would send them both to me with UPS Next Day Air shipping! Excellent customer service on their part!

A little foam behind the speaker helps it last longer when mounted in the door.

The Plasti Dip just peels off when you want it to and it cuts around the letters. Any overspray can be rubbed off with a towel.

They are awesome! And wiring them is incredibly easy, the instructions tell you exactly what to do!
