    Looking for low budget Subs/amp/box

    Im looking for atleast one 8inch to 10inch Subwoofer, brand not important though i do favor Kicker and Memphis. i dont expect to find either of those brands for my budget just giving a reference of what i like.

    Thanks for the help guys, where is the proper place to post a "wanted" add and do i have to be elite? i plan on becoming elite but money is tight at the moment, might be a few months.

    cant find for sale adds/posts for subs/amps?

    Im not trying to post a "Looking For" add, just wondering where i can find posts from members selling subs/amp/box. i tried the classifieds section but all i seen was vehicles, parts, or non car related? or is there no section for the audio sales? nothing worth paying for or way overpriced on my...

    Dash question

    Ah ok, i thought i would have to do the firewall also, thats a bit more work than i wanted, though i plan on a 302 for it as well, with a T-5 5speed. so i may need to find this Ryan and pick his brain a little. Thanks for all your help man, you've helped me out alot lately. is his user name just...

    Dash question

    Dash question

    i may take you up on that 91 dash if the swap is to much, this one is rough. i guess the guy that owned it before him was drunk and started tearing into it and messed alot up. except the vinyl, its almost new. i just need everything else, gauge faces, wiring, etc. I knew of the mustang dash...

    Dash question

    Ive been searching on and off for a couple days trying to see if anyone posted this before, with no luck. Ive had this idea for a little while now and wondered if it was possible without months of custom fabrications. i want to try and put a Mustang dash in my 1st gen. which one depends on...

    can i make my 1st gen look like a 2nd?

    Thanks for looking anyways. i appreciate the help. i just noticed that the 1st gen offers almost no aftermarket visuals; head lights, tail lights, bumpers, etc. and as far as grilles the best ive found yet was a Limited edition grille.

    can i make my 1st gen look like a 2nd?

    Thank you! thats exactly what i was looking for! Don did an awesome job on it. it will be a while before i do the 2nd gen look, first is getting it running how i want then body work. thanks for all the help everyone!

    can i make my 1st gen look like a 2nd?

    Thanks for the link, but i figured the front bolted up fairly easy because i knew a kid that did it to his ranger, but i want the tail end as well, (tail lights at minimum). anyone every done or seen that done to a explorer?

    can i make my 1st gen look like a 2nd?

    Ive searched this section for hours and cant find a post on this subject. if there is and i missed it can someone provide a link? i found a 2nd gen explorer that was a "Saleen" (dont know if real or cloned) i loved how it looked. im getting a 91 so its not the right body style for the kit...

    if there is a dipstick that will make it alot easier. my friend wasnt sure if this one would have it or not(he works for a transmission shop). i keep hearing more from the guy who has it now and sounds like he doesnt know whats wrong but he keeps mentioning new problems all the time, which im...

    a4ld to Manual M50D Swap How-to

    Thanks guys. that will help me out a lot. though it sounds like the engine might need a lot of repairs/replacing. if thats the case probably going to go for a 5.0 5speed swap all at once. still in the air, i need to get the thing here so i can find out exactly what it needs instead of guessing...

    a4ld to Manual M50D Swap How-to

    does anyone know the specific trans im looking for to replace my auto? did the 1st gen come from the factory with a stick option? could i just buy a stick trans out of a 2wd and put it in mine? EDIT: i know i can search google, but thought id see if anyone knew off the top of their head so i...

    it is an auto trans. the guy says its slipping a little but still engages all gears fine. How do i check it? i dont have the explorer with me just yet still working off the payments before i can get it. does it have a trans dip stick or will i have to do it off the trans itself? ive been reading...

    a4ld to Manual M50D Swap How-to

    Thank you. it might be a little bit before i start the swap, going to fix (or possibly replace) engine first, the auto in it works but is starting to slip so i want to be ready when it goes to just put a stick in since im not fond of autos anyway.

    New to the site and explorer scene

    Ok thanks! i like that look more than the basic one. at least i know what to search for now. are there any websites that tend to have more grille and lights for the 1st gen?

    New to the site and explorer scene

    That looks awesome! thats not to far from what i want to do, more of a "muscle" look than slammed. where did u get that grille and body kit!?! ive been looking for grilles/headlights/tails/bodykits for this thing and cant find much else than ricer kits or OEM.

    a4ld to Manual M50D Swap How-to

    Thanks. it might be a while first thing is first fix/replace engine. then comes transmission. (side note: is there a way to save this tread so i can find it when i do the swap?)
  32. K

    a4ld to Manual M50D Swap How-to

    This is probably a stupid question, is it the same for a 2wd model? the one im getting is an auto and its starting to slip according to the guy. i wanted a stick anyways so if i can ill probably just stick shift it.

    Thanks for the info guys, the guy already replaced the radiator and thermostat. then he found coolant in the oil. plus it has over 350,000 lol so a newer motor isnt a bad idea. a friend of mine has a wrecked ranger so i can get the 4.0HO out of a 96 ranger with 75,000 miles on the rebuild for...
