    if u want to be able to run ur subs when u want, just get seperate amps, what i did, i'm running 4 10" subs on 2 amps, each amp has a rocker switch on its "blue" wire to control the power to it, allowing me to run 0/2/4 subs at the flick of a switch which i love, cause i listen to all kinds of music

    do ranger lifts fit on explorers?

    if ur doing the 4dr leaf pack u should just go ahead and order the shackles, do that same time as for tips with the body lift, lots of extra washers , and when drilling out the threads, use a smaller size and work up to the 1/2, will prob be easier, i did that for the last 4 bolts i had to...
