An interesting but not surprising development since I swapped wheels.tires. No longer have the "Shudder" on braking. I attribute that to properly torquing the lug nuts after the wheel swap at 135 lb-foot to factory specs.
As usual....work interferes with progress! Hoping to get at least the front door Kicker speakers installed tomorrow. Rear doors use the same size speakers. I'll go from there. Figure the fronts will provide the most notable improvement. Kick It!!
Finally got the rest of the parts for the Windshield Washer/Coolant Recovery Combo tank ready to go in. All genuine Mopar parts. Tank/Caps/Grommets. Of course when you buy the tank that's all you get. Just the tank! Caps and grommets sold separately! This thing is huge! Over 27" tall.
The Boss Audio NAV install is 90% complete! All that's left is the installation of the Backup Camera. Everything works as it should thanks to the PAC OEM wiring harness adapter. Switches to Backup Camera input when in Reverse. No image because the camera isn't installed yet. All the pieces lined up to the new Radio Surround Bezel.
Not sure why the radio display looks crappy in the pictures. Doesn't look like that live. Most likely the camera and low light conditions. I'll get some better pics in the daylight tomorrow.
Audio on the phone called from the Head Unit is very good quality. The built-in microphone appears to work well. Need to place/receive calls while on the road to evaluate how "Road Noise" affects things.
Also need to load up a USB stick with music and try out the built in USB port for music.
Just under $400 all-in for the NAV radio upgrade. That includes the New Boss Audio NAV Radio, New PAC OEM Wiring Harness/Module, Used Radio Surround Bezel and New Radio Bezel Kit for filling in the opening.
Less money than buying one of the Expensive Kenwood or Pioneer NAV units alone!
And the used Radio Bezel came with the HVAC controls!

Decided to put up a restore thread over here on my 1993 Dodge D250; Cummins Turbo Diesel...this truck is like the Intrepid to me; and is getting a very similar restoration that my Intrepid did back in 2005...a bit more on this one though.
A little history, the 1993 has been in our family since...
So after the RX8 died last year, and after getting rid of it, we've been a one car family for the last year or so (the GF's Honda Civic) which is fine for us, and has been practical as far as our needs go.
But, being a car guy at heart, I needed (read: "wanted") something to tinker with. I've...
my 2017 Ram 1500 Tradesman
So I decided I wanted a brand new vehicle, but wanted something a lot more practical than the Saturn. In April this year I picked up a left over 2017 Ram. It is a base model Tradesman regular cab long bed with manual everything. It has the 3.6 V6, 2wd, 3.55 rear end...
