  1. O'reilly isn't much better, about $102 for the wix there, only $59 on Amazon.
  2. Save your money, I run a BHAF as well. I tried a new AFE cold air kit with a dry synthetic filter for 6 months. When I removed it to change my oil filter it was full of dust on the turbo side and the filter still looked new. I promptly put the BHAF back on. I know the wix number for the filter is 42790, you should be able to cross reference that if you wanted a different brand.
  3. I got my Red head installed over the weekend along with the upgraded 3rd gen style steering linkage. What a difference, my truck has never handled this good. No pulling and no play and my friend took the sacrificial steering fluid bath.
  4. When the dealer did mine I had to go back because it wasn't working. Apparently the first time I went in they did everything except turn it on. I didn't have the switch when I went in the first time, when I went back I did so I was able to verify it worked before I left.
  5. A remote start has other uses, like scaring coworkers who are smoking behind your truck. I think I'm the only spoiled one in here.
  6. I assume it's the standard ratio box, what ever the computer at work called for. I didn't even know there were two ratios until I went looking for the redhead which arrived today.
  7. I have compustar keyless/remote start on my truck and my 06 mustang with a stick, no alarms though. They both cost me about $400 installed. The unit in the truck has worked perfectly for the last three years. The one in the car works, but for some reason when I use it my tail lights don't work. If I shut the car off and start it normally they work again so it hasn't bothered me too much. It may also be related to my aftermarket tail lights, that car doesn't seem to care for LED's anyhow.
  8. No kidding, I'm on my 3rd reman box in the 80k miles I've had my truck. The first one leaked, the second one was waaaaaay out of adjustment and the 3rd and current one causes the truck to pull to the right. I'm hoping this will be the last box I have to swap for quite some time.
  9. I just put in a order for a red head an hour ago. I don't want to fight the crappy reman box I have on the 2400 mile trip I take this year. I will return my current box back to the store for a refund and I scored another core for $50 on facebook marketplace. When all is said and done, I should only be out about $230.
  10. At my work we have a brand new mopar under hood fuse box for a 3rd gen cummins. We ordered it for a customer who ended up not needing it and we are unable to return it. It's the big L shaped box with a knob in the middle. My boss would rather not write it off and let me pirate fuses and relays from it. He's not terribly picky about the price but would rather get something for it as opposed to nothing. I told him I would ask here if anyone was interested. If anyone is interested and would like more info I can get some pics of it on tuesday.
  11. Next year I have to haul a 25' camper half way to NY, about 1200 miles. I'll be curious to see how I do then vs the empty return trip back. I'll be followed by a 1994 GMC with a 350 pulling a truck bed trailer. I'm sure I'll be stopping for gas a lot more than diesel.
  12. Twice now I have made the trip from Kuna to the Oregon coast(Depoe Bay) which is just over 500 miles on one tank of fuel. Both times pulling my pop up camper. I was usually just under 1/4 tank when I got there. The first time, the truck was stock except for the stacks, the second time was with my current setup.
  13. I'll check my wiring, I remember having to fiddle with wire positions when I first tried HID bulbs too.
  14. Like this? I used to have a strip on the back of the tool box but I crushed it as well hauling stuff.
  15. Ok, I got them clocked at 3 and 9 and I notched the rings. The low beams are soooo much better now, it looks like your pics. I still have no high beams at all though. I'm not terribly concerned about it as I got used to using my light bar for high beams as the last set of lights only got worse with high beams. Took a trip through town and nobody flashed me but I feel I need to adjust them down just a bit.
