I'll take her (I've decided its a girl, her name is Bertha) to the mechanic tomorrow. I'll have him check the alternator and the battery. Likely only the battery, but better safe than sorry.

I'm still at AIT at FT Jackson, but my dad is having some work done to my Tahoe. The windsheild has been replaced, and the rear suspension is being fixed. Also getting the groan in the steering column fixed. I might even have the leather replaced on the driver seat, as it is starting to tear.

All my imageshack links don'tr work anymore due to them becoming greedy. I was an early member, and helped them grow! I should have a free account. WHATEVER.

Anywho, I'm back at it. I recently replaced the water pump, now scheduling the fuel pump. I think my next step is the exhaust, as I have an annoying leak. Sounds like crap. Any suggestions?

"Like crap" isn't very descriptive

I'm specifically looking for something without highway drone. I enjoy quiet on the freeway. I do, however, enjoy some aggressive tone when I go WOT. Guess I'll spend some time on Youtube, lol. Same basic kit on these gen GM Full-Size trucks and SUVs, If I understand correctly.

Also decided to go a little crazy with my refund. It all started when I wanted to make backing up a little safer. My visibility is poor, so I started with lights. Then, I found out backup camera's are more common, and this one works very good. So, I decided it would be a perfect excuse to go all out and get the stereo replaced! Thoughts?
