I thought I'd start a thread for anyone to post pictures (teasers) of upcoming mods.


I've decided that the SS needs a little more thump...

Can't let Sam have ALL the fun around here! :no:

Picked up some Black Friday deals for a mini upgrade to my slightly better than stock sound system. Nothing earth shattering like the previous posts though.


Pioneer AVH-P4400BH HU

Alpine MRX-V60 5 channel amp

KnuKoncepts 4 gauge amp kit, don't think my current 8 gauge one is gonna cut it!

Since I have the non Bose system and want to add an amp for the door channels, I bought this 20' long 9 channel speaker wire bundle to run from the amp, back up to the HU area to tap back into the stock wiring, that way I don't have to run new wires to the door.

I wanted a rear view camera, but couldn't quite get off the fence on which style I wanted. I went with this flush mount style, and ordered a hitch receiver cap. Plan to drill a hole in the cap, and mount the camera right in the hitch, since I never tow anything, this should be a good spot.

Earth vibrating, maybe. Shattering, not even close. (my name isn't Martin, you know) :wink:

Besides, that new head unit puts my OEM Bose to shame! :yes:
(okay, any aftermarket head unit does that) :frown:

OK, so I have a better radio, dome lights and cooler side mirrors. Do we even need to start a list of what's better in your TB than in mine? :hopeless:

One for the SS, one for the 'Hoe. Neither will be installed soon. :frown:

The headlights need modded before install (and I need to get H1 HID bulbs for them). The bowtie won't go on until the crossbar is color matched.

You should do a temporary pre-mod install of those lights, so you can post some pics for the other members curious about how these look. :twocents:

That seemed to be the biggest draw back when we first talked about these lights, no pictures of how they look installed and turned on. I look forward to seeing how these look on the truck...

Talked me in to it. I did hook up 12V to the DRL/devil eye. The side DRLs are nice and bright. The devil eye...well, not so much. My mod plans include separating the circuits, changing the LEDs in the devil eyes and a light coat of VHT on them. (just the ring)

I decided the 'Hoe also needed a little audio upgrade.

And, for those who have never seen one, that is an 8" sub. :crazy:
The Tahoe came with a factory 8" sub. This JBL will go in the factory enclosure.

The 'Hoe needs some new shoes.

So...I decided to upgrade a little. These are on the way. (should arrive tomorrow) A chrome replica of the 2007 Tahoe LTZ rim. I'll be putting Yokohama Parada Spec-X in a 265/50R20 on.

edit:
They arrived!
