Active Noise Canceling, or ANC for short, is available in many Jeep, Dodge Ram vehicles. Microphones throughout the cabin pick up undesirable sounds, and the ANC module plays soundwaves through the speakers in an attempt to cancel these sounds.
When adding an amplifier or, in my case, speakers with a broader sound range, the Ram’s Active Noise Cancelling sound waves become loud, audible Bass drone that makes the vehicle undrivable. Shutting off the radio does not stop the sounds as it’s a separate system.
This video will walk you through disabling the 2019 Ram ANC by de-pining the connector that holds the microphone wires. Once you remove the four positive microphone wires, Active Noise canceling is disabled, and the annoying bass drone goes away. I also cover the other option of using the PAC Factory ANC Module Bypass Harness for Select Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram Vehicles. This Active Noise Cancelling bypass harness quickly installs in less than 2 minutes in most cases.
IMPORTANT NOTE: After disabling the Active Noice Cancelling in my 2019 Ram Rebel, I Do NOT notice any difference in cabin noise. ANC Disable also DOES NOT impact the noise cancelling in your phone calls. A different system handles Noise Canceling for mobile calls.
I’ve been staring at the Spoilerking Rear window spoiler since my buddy Ryan over at Hemifam installed one on the old hag. I received a partial sponsorship for this so I figured it was time to go for it. I still paid well over $100 for this item, but the discount really helped. The spoiler featured in this vide is the Spoiler XL w/ Center Cut (380RC)
I installed the Luxe Forged Carbon Chopped Metallic vinyl in my dashboard and center console trim to compliment my new Forged Carbon Steering wheel. Each piece took just over an hour to wrap and the results were amazing.
Originally I wrapped it and left the silver trim ring around the edges and I was not happy with the results. You can see photos in the video at 0:19 so I peeled it off and wrapped the entire trim piece.
This is not an instructional video, but I do offer a few tips and as requested I show the entire wrap process for both pieces. Be sure to check out the Awesome Color Matched Paddle Shifters from CCH Customs and my new Forged Carbon Steering Wheel.

Only one kit required per vehicle; comes with parts to emulate BOTH exhaust valves.
If you want to remove the active exhaust valves on your Dodge or Chrysler vehicle, you need a valve simulator to prevent the Check-Engine light and diagnostic trouble codes.
Here is the simplest, fully electronic solution! Other options on the market are purely mechanical; require re-using the valves and mounting them to a dummy plate.
1: Crawl under vehicle and unplug both active exhaust valves.
2: Plug in the Inactive Exhaust modules. Secure in place with a zip-tie.
3: That’s it! You can leave the valves in place if you have a stock system and just want the valves open all the time. Or you can remove them completely – even sell them!
Great for those that:
just want the valves open full-time
want to remove or disable “noisy valves” as it is common for them to rattle
have faulty valves and don’t want the expense of replacing them
installing aftermarket exhaust and are completely removing the valves
This kit contains two parts – one is the inactive exhaust module, with an automotive-grade microprocessor that communicates with the vehicle to make it think that the valves are installed and functioning properly. The other part is a dummy waterproof connector to keep the second valve’s plug from corrosion.
Works on all systems used in Chargers, Challengers and 300’s from 2015 to present.
The Zenfox T3 is a great option especially for taxi and uber drivers, or anyone looking for all-around coverage on the road. Offering coverage of the front, interior and rear of your vehicle, the Zenfox T3 provides clear images for accidents, attempted theft and other accidents. The front and rear camera offer a combined 300° field of view. Infrared lights are included so you can see what’s happening in the passenger cabin even at night.
The front camera is fitted with a 5MP Sony STARVIS IMX335 image sensor to offer you clear 2K QHD videos of the road ahead day and night. The camera view angle is 160-degrees, allowing it to capture a broader footage with fewer blind spots.
The camera can also be tilted in four directions for a better angle that best fits your need and the shape of your vehicle.
The T3 offers multiple bitrate options and uses the latest H.265 video recording codec for maximum quality, with H.264 as an option.
Also mounted on the main (front) camera is the interior IR camera that captures the activities inside your vehicle.
The interior IR camera is designed with rideshare drivers and vloggers in mind. The camera uses a Sony STARVIS IMX307 image sensor that is capable of recording in 1080p Full HD and can retain its picture quality even in grayscale.
The Zenfox T3 comes with a built-in GPS that you can use to record your speed and route data in your video footage files. The GPS will also synchronize the T3’s internal clock with the GPS time so that your video files can be correctly time-stamped.
Did you know that your footage with speed and location information can be used a defense if you believe you received the ticket in error or need evidence to dispute wrongful claims.
The Zenfox T3’s built-in Dual Band WiFI lets you connect with the Zenfox mobile app to control dash cams settings on the spot. The mobile app also lets you watch a Live View of any or all the three cameras all at once. You can also download recorded videos directly from the camera to your phone without having to remove the SD card inside.

I love the Demonic Red Laguna leather seats in my 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody. Every six months, I clean and condition them using Chemical Guys Leather Cleaner, followed by their Leather Conditioner, and topped off with the Chemical Guys Leather Conditioner.
It leaves the seats clean, soft, protected from harmful UV rays, and the conditioning helps prevent the seats from cracking and fading. Not to mention the incredible smell of new leather every time you get in.
When Work Play Drive was born, I intended to cover the three aspects of my life. Work – Tech and home DIY | Play – Gaming | Drive – Cars. Since I’ve been buried in some good games lately, I figured I would share Robo Recall Unplugged, which has seriously cut into my video editing time. I’m playing it on the Oculus Quest 2, and happy to say between this and Beat Saber, I’ve tripled my daily activity.
