This jack is an absolute fricking beast

finally get to throw this tire/wheel on for the 5 tire rotation.
All other tires are just slightly under 17/32 and this new one is just slightly over 18/32, I think I'll be good to go if I just throw this new one up front

Looks like a nice jack for lifted trucks. Interesting that they went with plastic wheels though.

when I first heard about these I thought the same thing as well, although I’ve destroyed metal wheels on more than a few jacks in the past, I have a few friends with these that abuse the living crap out of them and no issues.

That's awesome. I'm ordering that Jack as soon as I can.

Just throw that new tire on the left rear and leave the locker off and hit the skinny pedal a few times. It will match the others;)

how much was that? At least it wont make the loudest noise in the world, that is of a normal jack wheels on concrete.

I bought a ARCAN 3 ton jack from Costco for 100 bucks last year. It had good reviews on various forums

I'm absolutely in love with this sound system upgrade! The sound stage and imaging is amazing, lots of time spent in the driveway after getting home from somewhere just sitting and listening to it, it takes me to a different place when I close my eyes.
With that being said I can never leave good enough alone soooo, lol
Monday she's going full active, getting a audiocontrol lc-1.800 amp to go with my Audiocontrol d-61200 amp. Wires will be ran to the pillar tweeters so every speaker will have its own channel on the d-6 12000 then my two Kenwood pxw1001b 10 inch preload sub boxes will be ran to the new lc-1.800 and of course everything will be professionally tuned by the shop I use who it one of the top dsp tuners around

The bug got me good, and to think I first went into this thinking, ok I guess I'll spend a few hundred on a sub here I am several thousand later. Fook it!!! You only live once

Being a cheap old geezer, I started with a very plain new truck figuring to add exactly what I wanted.
The small cab allowed me to add amps, powered active crossover and sound eq/timing digitally to an expensive st of component speakers/subwoofer on the cheap, under $1000.
Staging and sound are like you described, fun to just sit in and listen to parts of familiar mucsic I've never knew were there. "Ohhh man what a difference
" hardly does it justice!

it is crazy the stuff I can hear now that I have never heard before in music/songs. Been along time since I’ve used earphones but I suppose if I did probably would’ve heard with them also.

I was kind of antsy last night so about midnight I fabbed up an amp rack out of cardboard for a template, actually came out pretty good but we are leaving out of state for a funeral in about six days so getting the material to me and actually making it wasn't going to happen before Monday.

I wasn’t too happy with how they mounted my amp they did in the first part of the install not that there’s anything wrong with it but of course I had a better idea.
Stopped by the stereo shop today and talked with the main installer, let him know exactly how I want my amps mounted and he’s going to build a half cab length amp rack so all good to go for when truck goes in Monday.

I think most likely the next vehicle that gets an upgraded sound system I will probably do myself because I am so OCD, I’ve gone through this whole set up/their install a couple times now and have had all the door panels off at least two or three times LOL.
I will say though there’s something to be said for just being able to drop it off at the shop if I have an issue.

Well all I can say is WOW just wow

I'm Beyond happy. I don’t ever wanna get out of my truck now LOL.

They did a great job on the amp rack/placement and mounting as well.

VERY happy

Something pretty cool, so with this dsp I can have up to four different settings for different tuning.
After creating the different tuning profiles I use the ACR3 bass level knob to switch between them, I just press the Knob in and the light turns red then I turn it one click to get to the next profile. I currently have two different profiles, one that's tuned for driver seat with time alignment/delay and one without that for all seats.

Man its crazy how much this stuff has changed since 95 lol
