445 miles on a single tank of fuel with some to spare. LIT-XNA-LIT. OTIS showed 25.5 avg mpg. Probably closer to 24 mpg actual. I'll do the math at the next fill up.

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.

Seems like removing the door panels on the Durango is easier than an LH car. Only 3 screws to remove and lift it off the hooks.

I'll install the new Kicker door speakers this weekend that I've had for about a year! The passenger side door mirror is loose so I'll be able to resolve that also.

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.

Probably cheaper than replacing both the windshield washer and coolant tanks in an LH car or close to the same.

Thinking about buying one of these cargo carriers for crap that won't fit in the back of the Durango or I don't want to lift it that high!

500 lbs. capacity. Harbor Freight $79.99 for the aluminum version and $59.99 for the Steel version. Already have a Class 4 receiver.

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.

Need to pair the phone. Touch screen works great. Need to try out the remote. Plays CDs. Need to see what a DVD Movie looks like now that I have complete wiring installed.

Once the backup camera is installed....I'll need another project/mod to procrastinate on!

Phone is paired. Places/Receives calls. Streams music.



Plays DVD videos with the Parking Brake engaged as advertised! Not that I'm interested in watching a DVD video on that 5" screen!



Plays CDs no problem.

Better view of the display via my Camera Phone This is the Radio screen:

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.

Going to try and install the Kicker door speakers this weekend. OEM speakers sound better with the Boss Audio radio thanks to the 10 band equalizer. The Kickers should step that up a notch!

Seems that BOSS radio has all the modern features. Not a bad unit.

Get those speakers in - that will be a BIG improvement.

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!

Get those speakers installed today - should be a nice change on the upcoming drive.

I bought a PAC LOC adapter for the 2014 Charger - keeping the 8.4 Uconnect factory radio and aux inputs - that will be installed in a few months. I hope it works well.
