My name is Eric, I am from the South Hills of Pittsburgh, PA. I drive a 2000 Eddie Bauer 4.0 SOHC, I will list my mods and etc below. If you wish to contact me, please PM me or Email me on here (I hate spambots so I won't put my direct email in my post).

She was totalled from that, since PA is a "No Fault" state, it was never actually determined who caused it, but he hit me, haha. He hit right on the driver side wheel causing the transfer case to crack in multiple places as well as slightly roll the frame rail inwards:thumbdwn:

So, one week after using the E8, it died on me :(. Turns out the negative tinsel lead had broken on the spider near the voice coil, so it will be gone shortly. However, I will be getting a DD 1008b to replace it :)

I figured since I'm spending the money on a really nice sub, I might as well build a nice ported box for it. A friend of mine that's a DD dealer is ordering it for me, and building the box then shipping it all to me completed (I could've done the box but he offered to do it at cost), so look for that comping up here in a couple weeks.

I'll also be doing my "Spring Cleaning" on her next week during my Spring Break, full detail top to bottom - inside and out. :)

I saw your explorer posted on craigslist. Very clean looking truck. Good luck with your sale. What are you planning on getting next?
