Maineiac EX

Helo to all who should happen to read this. My name is Deane and I live in the southern region of Maine. I own a 2002 XLS with a 4.0l V6 and a 5 speed manual tranny. The X has seen quite a gew mods since I have owned it. I purchased it in June of '05 and imediately bought a set of ZYOXX ZX2 20" wheels with Goodyear GT2 rubber 275/45/20. I also ordered a body kit that needed some serious tweeking when it arrived. I also ordered a full Infinaty Componant sound system to go along with the Clarion DVD head unit i purchased from Crutchfield. Trying to regain back some youthfulness I installed 4 15" Audiobahn subs with 2 2000w Phoenix amps. A friend of mine made a custom fiberglass encloser with a electric drawer system to hide the amps under the subs. When the airbags came it was time to redo the subs encloser so to make a long story short the new box resembled a dog house. The airride was great and the body kit was freshly painted to match the X. Now brings us to a dramatic point in this story....October 8th while driving north on route 1 in Yarmouth Maine a woman driving a volvo wagon decided to cut in front of me and it was either take her out or try to avoid her. Having defencive driving skills obtained from the Military I opted for avoiding a nasty mess. So there i sat highsided on a median with blown airstruts and a completely demolished bodykit. And I will never have Allstate Insurance again THEY SUCK!!!! wanna talk about not covering **** on my truck. So everything spiraled down from there. So as it is I have a clean slate. A slow process so far. Ill try to get some pix up soon.
