i wasnt able to use my MT 12s for the build thanks to my batteries and wanting to stay under the window.

just called a buddies shop and will have 4 DD 1508s for right now that will be here Wed i think he said.
i have to wait untill tomorrow to start building because im waiting on the title to register the truck.

for today though im going to get rid of the pioneer HU thats in it and replace it with my pioneer DEH-P5000UB
run my power wire
install the Rainbow comps

and working on the tint right now

here is the truck

nice, i had a 93 ranger before i bought my explorer, had just under 200K on original drivetrain and still ran like a champ and still got 20 MPG, great little trucks. I had 2 15" kicker comp VRs in it and it was pretty loud, lol.

what did you pay for it, and the subs?

05-05-2008, 02:29 PM
the 4 X 4 is nice, those things are so light that if you put a decent lift and some nice tires on it, they are pretty hard to get stuck.

mine had the 3.0 v6 as well, auto. Not sure what changed between the years if any, but it was a good drivetrain.
