Planning on ordering a kenwood excelon deck for the f150. Stumbled upon a kenwood excelon model with built in Garmin navigation and Bluetooth. Full complete double din. Guy is asking $325. Waiting for a model number. But if I can get it cheap enough I'm considering the used unit based on the features it has for the price. Also read kenwood gives updates to their navigation headunits on their website which is a plus. My alpine has a brain with a disc. It sucks lol

where is the best place to get a good alternator? Looks like mine just took a shit in the f150. Autozone wants about $220 plus core for a duralast that's only 110 amp.. Mechman 250 amp is $400.

The used kenwood I'm looking at is a DNX570HD. Leaning more toward this unit than the ddx393. It has hd radio as well as navigation is one thing that I really want.

I use the volt gauge on my ultra gauge. Will be using the one on the edge tuner when I get it.

I like this one cause you can calibrate it. I have it connected at the amp fuse right now

Blew transistors in my amp yesterday . I think my voltage dropped too much. Pulling my 4g and buying 2/0 welding cable as soon as I can. Also selling my box and subs so I can upgrade that too.

----------

Gotta buy enough for the big three too.

Sky high 0 gauge off eBay is $40 for whole kit. 3 pieces of 3 or 4ft wire and terminals
