wow bud. edge aint the best but looks like you got a killer deal. my edge cost me $400 bux. it will def wake your truck up. even if its not the most potential you can get out of it.




also you need to get a factory amp bypas for your sterio it will make your sound quality much much better + when I left mine in it would over heat my deck and make it shut off.

im talking bout the factory amp. it takes the 10 amp signal from the factory radio and turns it into like 20 or 30 amps and sends it to the speakers so when you hook a 40 amp sterio into the factory harness it goes into the factory amp and treats it like a resistor and it ruins your sound quality and will over heat your deck. hope that helps. the bypas is only like 30 bucks or you can just hard wire the entire sterio your self for the cost of wire.

LOL enjoy it while you can bud. when I was in high school every last cent went into my trucks and their fuel tanks. One thing I can say to you is I sure wish i had put some of it aside.

Yeah the cost of diesel is completely keeping me from doing more and more mods.

I recently made a list the other day and my to-do list ended up at about $4,500!!
