So far I'm loving the new sound, haven't switched it from economy yet want to let the truck want up to the tunes first before I try to push it. Very pleased with these tunes my buddy is switching to Kory Willis from his current tunes... Not sure what they are but he likes mine a lot more.

Well changed out my interior lights with some XBs from the Retrofitsource. You'll need 4 44mm to do the interior overhead lights.
They aren't cheap but my last truck was outfitted from TRS with projectors, halos, and interior lights. Love their products and their customer service. Also ordered some 800 lumen reverse bulbs for my Acura from them and wow wish I could get them to fit in the Duramax.
