    Installing a Subwoofer without the JBL sound system

    I've heard that doing this will make body panels rattle too though. I'm not sure how you feel about that, but its the only reason i haven't done this yet. Just one thing to think of, I love the idea though.

    You would be surprised on what they do at an auto parts store. Batteries are rotated and have new dates put on them, so your battery could be 2 years old already and you wouldn't know.

    92 Explorer Automatic to Manual Transmission Swap

    If i remember correctly you have to go and change out anything that deals with electronics going to and from the tranny, with knowledge it wouldn't be too hard. but it also includes tearing a lot of wiring and parts apart just to get it in then there will be a lot of testing after its in to make...

    i think under the seat it might over heat anyways, thats the problem ive always wondered about and have had a problem deciding on where i want to put it, i might be wrong or it might depend on the amp but i would put it in a place it can kinda breath and get some air to it.
