Wait, so stock gears for the 4 banger are 4.11??

I think some autos had 3.73. Regardless you have to gear the 4 cylinder lower with tire size just like the 6 cylinder.

picked up a x8000i that came on a plate with cable.
the plate was no where near fitting, and the bumper I just built wasn't working with it.
So I chopped the plate and bumper all up, and now it's just all one piece.

I used a plastic license plate cover to make a bracket out for mine. I just cut off the straight parts, cut them done to about three or four inches, angled them to fit the screw holes, and presto my speakers were in. I did this because I forgot to order brackets and I wanted them in. Still sound good. Maybe I will order real ones later.

Hahah it seems like there is a ton of ways to do it lol. I think I am going to use the stock speaker braket and cut out the old speaker and put in the new. Should work I'll post some pics if I get it to work lol

I'm the exact opposite. Fast off the line but 5th gear is dumb to use for me

I got a high pinion 30 and a chrysler 8.25 for free geared to 3.55. So I was going to do that over a re gear on mine. And I have yet to find a reputable shop that will do gears. Western MA has crap for that.

final coat of paint today on bumper v2.0, quick disconnect wired up for the Warn, cleaned up the winch a bit, wd40'd the whole line and spooled it back in.

the stock bumper was dented when I got it... I'd say that's all fixed now.





Here was my frame hack job. I didn't like it hanging down beneath the bumper, so that's what I came up with...
