Handed the keys to my dad and informed him about 2nd gear in cold weather. I'm off to Ottawa for the weekend in my family's Pontiac Montana due to 7 of us going.

You could of fit 6.5's in there so you know. IDK where you bought the speakers from but if you can still return them and want better sound, get the step up.

Tires

Hey, does anyone know how to make your tires stick out on the sides? Do you have to buy something cheap or get like a kit? Thanks.

You might be right on that, but with the amount of fade i use between the front and back it sounds perfect. thanks for the heads up though.

It's usually the back spacing and offset in the wheel that makes it stick out. So new wheels will prolly be ur best bet

X2. I fade mine up front because the 6.5s are over powering. And they aren't even amped. I have alpine type a up front and cheaper pioneers in the rear.

do you have a sub? mine is a 12" mtx with a alpine head unit, but the key to making it sound good is a seperate volume knob for sub.

I had a 12 kicker l7 on a kicker amp pushing over 900. Haha but not anymore. I have a very small sub now. My head unit is tuned in And my sub is completely separate from the rest.

Got my Jeep Dirty just driving around town as the area begins to thaw during the day and re freeze at night, thus a goo of De-icer and sand everyplace.

Finally adjusted the 4x4 gear link after completing a 2.5" lift two weeks ago and installed two Blitz gas can holders on the rear tire carrier. Then a nice little trip off road. Perfect ending to the day.

Yes. But those are prone to breaking so IMO I would not recommend them. And I'm confused about ur question. Do the wheel spacers answer ur question?

If you do get wheel spacers, the biggest to prolly get is like 1 inch tops. And that's pushing it
