    Opinion on this projector setup with HID kit.

    Well that sucks. I just got them today but I'll give them a try and put up some beamshots vs stock. Thanks for the input though.

    HID Wiring Questions. Aftermarket Housings. (Pics)

    Had some new headlights come in today and had a few questions about the wiring. I haven't taken out the stock lights yet so that doesn't help. Plan on working on them tomorrow when it is light out. Anyways, this is what I'm working with. Once i figure this out I'll try to do a write up on it...

    Opinion on this projector setup with HID kit.

    Well for $210 I'm gonna give them a shot. I'll take some pics and put them up afterwards. I'm still assuming it will be a great improvement over stock and if nothing else, it will update the look of the front end. My fluted lenses are clouded and just look dated.

    4 wheel shift question ?

    Just turn it on and make a turn on pavement. You should be able to feel the front tires slipping.

    Opinion on this projector setup with HID kit.

    I was looking to increase my light output and came across these. I was looking for something bright and I know HID in housings designed for halogen bulbs will shoot the beam everywhere distracting other drivers. Found this on ebay and was wondering if this anyone has had experience with this...

    Suggestions for window tint?

    I think after a certain year they stopped putting the reflective tint on. My privacy glass just looks like normal tint to me so there shouldn't be a problem with that.

    Suggestions for window tint?

    Ya, that's probably what I'll do. The tint laws here are 25% front and back. Rear Window can be any %.

    Anti-theft bypass?

    While I'm not exactly sure what that means, I don't want the PATS to be disabled completely, just for when the remote start is used. I'm pretty sure this is the part I'll need...

    Anti-theft bypass?

    Alright I was probably just looking in the wrong spot, I'll have to make a second pass later ;). Thanks again.

    Anti-theft bypass?

    Well I tried Pep Boys and I couldn't find the part plus the lady had no idea what I was even talking about. So I'll probably try Car Toys or online somewhere. I think the alarm I got has a special place where it goes on the main unit so I probably need to find one that will fit there. Thanks.

    Anti-theft bypass?

    I have a 99 Explorer that got the window broken out a couple days ago and I decided to get an alarm system with remote start. It's a Viper 5701 and i was wondering if I'll need a bypass for the remote start and if so where can I get one. Thanks in advance.

    Suggestions for window tint?

    Someone had the brilliant idea of breaking out my car window and trying to steal my stereo this morning so I figured since I'm gonna have to have the new window retinted anyways, I'd go darker than the stock "solar tint" on the front windows. I was wanting to just match the rear windows. (It has...

    Tweeter install to move sound stage up?

    That looks like a pretty nice install! I like the way they look in the doors. I"ll probably try different things. Thanks for the input!

    Which would you choose?

    I'm looking to upgrade my subs and have found a couple which look pretty good. I was just wondering which one would be better. Thanks! The first is Infinity Reference 1220DE http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_8246_Infinity+Reference+1220DE+-REF1220DE-.html and then Polk Audio DB1222...

    Tweeter install to move sound stage up?

    I was thinking about installling tweeters in my A pillars or somewhere up kinda high to bring my soundstage up. I have four Infinity Kappa componet doorspeakers with the tweeters pointed up in the middles but you can definately tell all the sound is coming from below you. I was wondering the...

    My current setup

    I never got in in to the custom box building. I just buy the enclosed subs with factory boxes and never had a problem. Too much thinking. ;) Haha, thanks, It's a good space saver if you have a big amp.

    My current setup

    It's a pain in the butt putting that stuff in ;). I'll take some pictures once I get it all in. I have one more strip in the front of the cab and the doors left. :D I'm only runing 200w on the sub. Haha, it was given to me. Hopefully I'll be upgrade to 2 12s or 3 10s in the next few months.

    99 XLT Drivers door

    I had the same problem, I eventually just gave up and cut through the rubber boot and drilled a hole in the door and inserted my own grommet. Then I wrapped the wire in electrical tape for protection and so it blends in well. Worked for me.

    Need Help replacing a factory installed stereo

    i had two plugs and I'm pretty sure the extra one went th the rear radio controls. Anyways I just left it out and everything works fine except the rear radio controls which never got used anyways. Hope that helps.
