    Color matching the Arizona Beige is no problem. The dealer will use the factory paint code and use the same paint formula. However, keep in mind that LINE-X has a texture and will reflect light differently than your truck's paint. The dealer should use LINE-X Xtra and I recommend a clear Premium topcoat.

    I picked up a TR7 module from PAC electronics. Was supposed to turn on the sub. Didn;t work. I cut it back out, got frustrated and wired it to the switched power source. Now the sub works but I may now be on the "I have a big SUV with alot of interior volume" escalator. Dual's 8" bandpass with 160w amp built in may not cut it. It barely fills in the bottom end, Barely. Crap, didn't want to spend more money

    I haven't ever had good luck with "sound sending" turn on technology, especially at low volumes. flips the sub on and off as the bass hits. annoying. The wire you would tap behind the radio is the switched power wire. I'm sure you could find it in a stereo faq for the excursion somewhere. It won't hurt the sub to be on when the truck is running, and if you ever want to turn it off, you can just wire a toggle switch in line with the remote lead. Thats the way I would do it, but that doesn't mean its the only way.

    You mean a remote turn on wire? You could just wire it to an ignition switched power source, but the radio has its own turn on because it stays on for 5 mins after you switch power off but before you open the door, and also with the key in ACC. Your best bet is just to pull the radio and tap the factory power wire (not sure which one, use a digital multimeter) and run a thin (18 gauge is fine) turn on lead to the amplifier. the 18 gauge wire will be easy to snake along under the door jambs, which pop up easily using a thin trim tool.
