You are lucky then because my ridged asshat Best Buy will fix as often as you want for the term of the warranty but if they replace it with a new unit, they stick you for another warranty.

Wow! My butt draws up too tight to even think about this. I can always be found in the slow lane, about 55 to 60ish.

3rd day with the Jeep. First day, it was running hot so I put in a new thermostat and flush the radiator, that seemed to help. Then I ripped out all the carpet, shop-vacc'd it out as the PO had it sitting for awhile and cats were living in it....cat hair and smell bout 95% gone. duct taped the driver's seat, as it was all ripped up and put new cheap seat and steering wheel covers on. Rain yesterday and garage is a mess.

Today took off vice grips holding positive terminal together on the battery and replaced with new connector. Noticed that the valve cover seal is leaking oil...first "big" job for me lol.

Finally got the little lady to ride with me in the jump seat. No top (the Jeep not the wife) and no doors. Damn she's sexy over there.

Started to walk towards it to work on CB and PA but then noticed and was asked to tend to lawn work... So instead got roasted from the sun and got paid some. Equals it out? Unsure

If the speakers get damaged, they can't fix it, they have to completely replace it. They aren't speaker technicians, they just know how to put them in and overprice the installs, lol.
