    Opinions on another Explorer.

    How can I make the rear map lights come on with the dome light?

    Just as the title says. This would be on a 2000 4 door Explorer. If I us a jumper from the green/orange wire to the black/blue wire would that make the map lights come on with the dome? And is the light grounded through the mounting bracket? I assume that it is. Here is a pic of the...

    Thinking about getting a newer dvd headunit.

    I was looking at the double din units but that means I have to relocate my EQ and there is just not to many options to mount the EQ in the Explorer. If anyone has any suggestions I am all ears.
