2003 black L here. Bought it new spring of 2004. 60,000kms on her so far. Lowered the rear with JLP shackles to level it out. Replaced the cat-back with a JDM Silver Bullet and removed to two rear cats for a little more volume. FTVB for firmer shifts and only a K&N panel filter so far on the motor side of things. Billet grille and clear corners. Custom sound system designed and installed with the help of my wife (5 - 10"s baby!). That's about it. Looking at getting a tuner, CAI & 4# pulley this summer.

Thanks for the compliments, sounds great but I'm not a fan of my front stage. The Q-form kick panels are kinda flimsy and the Phoenix Gold components I've got in them are so-so.... they do have quite a bit of low-end to try to keep up with so I think I may be asking too much of them. Maybe some day I'll upgrade the kick panels to some custom made f-glass ones with some MB Quarts or Focals or something. I've also got Kicker 8" mid-bass and a set of tweeters in the doors to help out.

That system has to sound amazing.
Whats your head unit?
This is the only pic of my HU that I have, it's an Alpine I bought probably 5 or 6 years ago. Does the trick. In fact I don't even really use the CD player itself anymore, it has an Aux. input that I have my Sirius hard wired to and another input for my mp3 player or laptop.

bought a 2003 after selling my 04 lightning. I became the remorsefull seller. I had the 04 maxed out on the stock block .


The 03 is dark grey with a hard top. Built motor- Manley rods , magnum powers with a 6# lower. C&L upper with a JPL intake. Electric fans, with manual override for the fans and the intercooler pump.
Heads have been complete with valves done with crowler stage 2 cams. Seimens deka 60# injectors. Kooks long tube headers, low flow cats with Magna flow exhaust. Built tranny with the deep oil pan. Been lowered 4 inchs ( gona raise it back up 2 inchs) in the rear and 2 in the front. Idler relocate, larger intercooler tank resulting with the rear mount battery.
Still finding things. I was aware of the truck when it was built by the first owner, missed it by 15 minutes when he sold it. Next owner changed a few things, spotted the truck at the dealer a year later when he traded it in for a HD deisel 4x4.


Truck is in getting new coil packs, fuel pumps and a dyno tune. Hope to have it back on Monday.
