Modifications

Drivetrain
Added K&N intake
Delco Iridiums
Supermod Ported Throttle Body
Tuned
Supersparks
Washed but not waxed
Red Line Lifts May 2014 via a group buy
New AC Delco O2 Sensors ordered from RockAuto. Installed upstream 8/3/14
E-Fan 8/28/2014 along with a new waterpump. What a bear to remove the old clutch fan.
Interior
Painted AC ducts and radio bezel gloss black. Door handle tubs and door pulls are now Blue, thinking of doing the ducts and radio bezel the same blue. Tried red on the door trim but was too, ahhh garish, for me.

Line-X bed liner Spring 2004
Hard Bed cover Spring 2004
Added Supermod LED 3rd brake light
Audio
Swapped out failing factory original speakers for Kicker 6.5 Coaxial speakers all around.
Installed Kenwood Excelon and chime adapter from Crutchfield
Suspension
Stock
June 2014 noticed the 2004 torsion bars are sagging a bit. Had to find myself a 27mm socket. Never had one I guess. Going to try adjusting torsion bars, will I save my pennies to replace them.
July - Cranked TBs up to level the truck and they seem to be holding after 4 weeks. Re-alignment was definitely needed.
Wheel and Tire
Factory stock 15X7
Firestone Destinations
Bought some used 15X 7 2004 factory wheels from DigEm a month ago. Just got them Powder Coated Gloss Black. Need to figure out what I want to do with the center caps and get some nice tires for them before I mount them on the truck - Oh well.... went with a new set of Firestone Destination LE2s.
New Firestone Destinations July 2014, factory sized, and installed. Black wheels look nice IMO. Still hung up on center cap color.
Supermodulation and I swapped spares. My 235 for his 265. Cant get away from those General Tires
