    kenwood amp and sub any good?

    Not to sound rude but the reason why Crutchfield is called crutchfield is because you need crutches after you see the prices. Check for those units, for cheaper ;) Just trying to help a fellow Efer out ;)

    ...And a simple job turns into a nightmare (long)

    Ive done the same on Loki. Go to fire it up, no oil pressure. Freak out, start looking around, discover the drain bolt is in its same spot, next to the hood latch, where i always set it, and my drain pan is almost overflowing. Then i curse to the sky because i just wasted 5 quarts of synthetic...

    what took look for in merc moutaineer?

    Id search around but under the skin the mounty is identical to the v8 AWD Explorer 2nd gen. The engines last forever, somehow i managed to detonate a tranny at 154k miles however the trans are usually bulletproof. Check for rust in usual place yada yada

    Parts list to replace front end parts

    I second rockauto. I spent 500 bucks for all brand new front end componets for Loki and it was well worth it. Alot better than you can get at a steelership or a brick and mortar store.

    97 XLT, no turn signals or hazards!

    check your multifunction switch. This is a common failure. the flasher relay depending on model should be yellow to the right of the steering column, shouldnt be hard to find, i can easily reach up and touch it. the MFS can cause alot of issues, like my intermittent wipers have a mind of their...
