All the quad alternator brackets I found we're cheaply made to expensive and didn't allow access to the power steering pump, so I decided to make my own. I picked up a power steering pump bracket for my 5.3 liter from the junk yard since...

    Audio - How to "tighten" up the Bass

    Since the factory deck went out in my truck - I've been doing a lot with it's bose sound system. I replaced the deck with a Kenwood 4x 50 watt plus 100 watt sub woofer output and added a 7 band equalizer. It still didn't sound the way I wanted it to - so I started replacing door speakers...
