You're either early or late.

Installed a Kicker C8 in the factory sub box. Kinda a pain, but I made it work! It involved washers and wood screws and hose washers, lol. Also taped down the look weather stripping while I look for a replacement.
Also ran in to a problem with the alternator and/or battery. The battery died while I was working on the sub. Way premature. After I jumped it, it would go very low on RPMs and eventually died. I let it idle for 30 minutes before it died. It only died because I put it in Drive, revved, and put it in put and let off the gas. Started it up and it idles fine. Hmmm

Alternator? Could be a bad battery. Can you limp it to autozone or the likes?

Yep low voltage on these trucks makes em idle super low and stall frequently. I've had it happen even if there's actually enough voltage for the starter, the PCM needs more. Give er some revs and a couple minutes later usually fine. Check battery anyway though.
