I'd like to see it with the seams blended and the whole thing one color. It'll still look like the retarded love child of Mater and Sally, but maybe not so retarded.

16 gauge should work fine...if the speaker wires are heading to the center console then they should turn from there and head straight back under the carpet and the backseat, then up to the speakers in the rear bulkhead.

There are assholes and degenerates at every level of society. That's all I have to say on really anything that starts going around in order to cause a media uproar and distract from shit that actually affects me.

Stratus: stock system. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Jeep: Polk Audio 5.25's in front, 6.5's in the soundbar

Infinity Reference 475a amplifier powering them.

Soon to have a Pioneer 10" shallow mount installed in a custom box in the back seat (yes, IN the seat)

powered by an Infinity reference 1600a mono amp. I don't need the best shit out there. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Head unit is a busted JVC for now, will be replaced with a Kenwood KMR-700U marine unit.


Going to amend this...change of plans.

Same sub, will get a second in the future but there was only one in stock, and it's an intermittent stock.

This amp to power them:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TDZ3N...ils_o01_s00_i00
And this amp for the components:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TDZ3P...ils_o01_s00_i02

I won't even need to turn up the gain to max them out. Should run nice and cool.
and a Pyle "marine" 1.8Farad capacitor in case the Big 3 upgrade I'll end up doing at the same time isn't enough with my 6 aux lights and HIDs running at the same time.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001OSCE7...ils_o01_s00_i07

EDIT: It's all together! Not my cleanest install (kinda the opposite of stealth) but it matches the rest of the Jeep. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Got a second sub, wired them up in 2-ohm parallel and built a simple 1.2 cu.ft box to put them in and mount the amps/cap to. The subs don't clip even when I turn the gain all the way up, and when I turn the bass boost on the amp all the way up, even with the remote sub control off it still kicks damn hard.

Now I'm working up plans on a hard cover for the back area made from MDF, bolted to the hard top mount bolts and with a locked door so I can access the 1/3-reduced storage area underneath. Second bonus is that the hard cover will essentially act as a second "bed".

So all the snow is finally gone and I can find my way around the junk piles here in camp, so I went exploring. Found a pallet with half a motorcycle, another motorcycle frame and engine, and a pair of three-wheeler frames and engines (look fairly complete except for most plastic and seats, and there's a seat nearby).

I've really been Jonesing for a motorcycle to do a summer commute with, but anything up here costs more than the benefit I'll get from it.

The biggest draw on this pile is the Yamaha DT250 enduro, right around 1975 model year. It'll take a lot of work, and what seems like a lot of cash to find parts for it (I'll probably do the bare minimum, not a full resto just yet...parts for that are ungodly), but I think it'll be a fun project. I'll leave the three-wheelers for someone else. Maybe grab everything and sell it, who knows? But that bike is mine.

And this is just after I dropped $500 on the remainder of my Jeep's stereo components. Hooray.

Monthly payment on a couple credit cards. I'm dangerously close to the point at which I'll have to start paying annually. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

Ask me two years ago if I thought this would be the case, I'd tell you hell no. I'm torn...I'm making good money but that's another little kick in the pants I'll have to pay out starting maybe next year, most definitely the year after. Depends on if I get the promotion or the better-paying closer-to-home job I'm hoping for.

Keep in mind that any open-flame sources in a garage will immediately prompt your insurance company to deny you fire coverage on all attached structures and belongings inside. It's not about igniting the fuel source with a separate spark, it's about the open flame of the heater igniting fumes from any gas-burning items you store inside, such as a car, lawnmower, chainsaw, weedwacker, or fuel cans with vents. An acquaintance is now living in a tiny little house after his old house practically exploded. He was welding under his truck in his closed garage when the fumes from various gas sources ignited....singed his hair off and burned his shit down.

They make kerosene and propane burning infrared heaters with sealed ignition chambers. I have a Monitor kerosene furnace I'm going to be moving from my wife's office into the garage as she doesn't need it, and I do. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif) That'll probably happen sometime this summer. Otherwise I've been looking at these:

http://www.reverberray.com/products/ld.html

but I don't particularly want a fourth type of fuel to keep track of. (wood, #2 diesel for the house furnace, #1 diesel for the Monitor, and propane) Although, I'm also tempted to put the monitor in the master bedroom, leaving this still as an option.

That is an excellent point.

How about you take a picture of it at night with the brake depressed, and let us judge how it looks. Not that we're cops or anything, but they look pretty dark in your sig so I'm guessing that the cop noticed the same thing. If you fight it, you'll have to provide evidence to the judge anyway, and I don't think a simple picture will be enough (with editing programs and all).

Be honest with yourself and show us what it looks like.

Yes you are correct that it's not only the wheels but also the tires with the combination to throw off your tachometer, and I thought I had typed that.
I got new tires for my R/T last summer for ~$100-120/each which was mounted and balanced included at my local mechanic from a tire warehouse in town. Don't know how much cheaper buying "new" wheels and tires from a place would be in comparison, just sounds like buying more than you need imo. Then you've got other wheels sitting around taking up space. Your call though (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)


Winter tires for a 17" or larger wheel for these cars cost quite a bit more than the same tires for a 16" wheel. You can get 16's that will fit these cars for virtually pennies, and two changeovers worth of labor to mount and rebalance tires saved will pay for them. I'd much rather have dedicated summer and winter wheel/tire combos, to minimize the chance of the tire monkey trashing my wheels or not balancing them properly.

Are there breaks in it? Does it plunge into the door? If you look closer at it, is the bottom edge of it straight or fuzzy, as dirt would be?

Hell with it, I'll answer. You probably have air in your coolant system from the last two leaks. After you replace all of the shit that's broke on it, get the system flushed and bled properly.


Remember: half-ass repairs cause bigger problems down the road. And replacing shit without knowing exactly what's causing your problems is also pretty stupid. For the cost of that new radiator which you probably didn't need, you'd have been able to replace your lines. You also would have been able to not fuck up your thermostat...which is another cause of your overheating. If you have a constant open loop without the thermostat control, you're going to be getting heat soak through your entire cooling system and your engine will either overheat or never get up to temp, depending on the ambient temperature.

I'm also assuming that you don't run coolant, just water.

Try to imagine what would happen if you break a motor mount on the road powering up to cruising speed.

I'm wondering...you replaced your clutch but did not install the new throwout bearing while everything was apart and easy to access. So you have a stronger-than-spec clutch which will probably put more load on your bearing, riding on the factory bearing with however many miles already on it.

Seriously? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
