    What about the "LAHM"? (loud a$$ horn mod) :D ...I think its a bit of a joke but of course I did it when I first got the truck to see if I could hear a difference. There might have been a slight difference but I'm pretty much deaf due to almost 18 years of drums:rimshot::rockband: All it consists of is removing the little metal baffles that are attached to the horns behind the grill...I'm not sure the 14s and 15s have these but I would assume they do...

    I added it to the list. I removed my horn baffles....not much difference. Maybe slight increase.

    I just found this cool link........ http://denver.craigslist.org/ptd/5009190623.html

    I have not talked to this guy whether he would ship. Looks like quality stuff. I'll give him a call this morning to set up a possible meet after work. This may be a good find for those of us who live in CO, WY, NE since he is local. This mod isn't exactly a simple DIY, but you do get to simply fork over money yourself.

    I can set you up with someone in Thornton who I trust 110% and has done work on many, many vehicles...they specialize in bumpers, sliders, tire carriers, etc, but do lifts (they did mine) aftermarket light installs, etc...

    Come to think of it I remember you mentioning InSainFab when I picked up the shock/coils. I checked out their gallery. Looks like they will do whatever your imagination/budget comes up with. Truly InSain.

    As Sean mentioned there are lots of better custom bumper fab companies in CO.
    Looking up the phone number the company on the craigslist posting is called First Choice Fab. https://www.facebook.com/pages/First-Choice-Fabrication/150470918375712
    Never heard of them until now.

    The pictures of 1st Choice's work on Facebook are actually kind of impressive. Decent reviews. Appears to be pretty much word to mouth. Not necessarily a bad thing.

    It could be good. I'm not saying they aren't just no experience.
