My Avalanche Mod Thread
I have decided with the avalanche that I will have one thread to post all the mods I do. For particularly interesting mods, I will create new threads but everything will also be here.
Let's start with a picture of when I got the truck:
Mod #1: I removed the dealer emblem from the tailgate
Mod #2: I used the rearview mirror wiring to hardwire my radar detector, even though the avalanche has a tendency to cause the radar detector to set off the laser band
Mod #3: I installed my focal 165-KRC speakers in the front doors. This drastically
improved the Bose system... It even sounds like it has a decent subwoofer now, just without the vibrations. And the sound quality is amazingly crisp and clear

Thanks everyone. So far, the rest of the sound system is factory so I'm still using the Bose amp. At some point I plan to do a full sound system build with a nav unit and everything, so I would ditch the Bose at that point. Until then, its not too bad with decent speakers.
The windshield will be done at some point, but the cracks aren't too irritating yet, so it will wait for a while.
