Thanks. Tires are temporary, I think I'll keep the rims.

Got the bluetooth 2din in along with an amp I have had for ages. Didn't want to post till I got it working LOL just pulled it a few minutes ago after it sounding like turd for 3 days, humming, buzzing no volume.

Turns out the little white handle dip switches don't go toward the white portion of the diagram, the black on the diagram is where you put the white. Seems stupid to me but it works great now.

So basically I had all the HPF's on and speaker input when I'm using RCA. Every switch was wrong.

My clue was a little "on" at the top left of actual switch.

The drive home is going to be interesting.

Pic, not showing pods. I'm re doing them since I'm evidently not as talented as buggman, they worked fine at 12v on the bench. Feed them with almost 14 and they dance like crazy.

Looks awesome!!@ what car stereo monitor did you use? 7" ? Could you take a close up of the monitor and the bezel so I can see how you installed it? Thank you

Well not a professional job, I used one of those 15 dollar kits and had to mod the crap out of the bezel but it turned out cool. Third one I have done, things are starting to repeat lol.

Oh boy, I ordered a 7". Hope it fits. Yours fills up the space nicely.

I realize I am seriously late to this party, but just read through the entire thread (on work time, LOL). Gotta say, I love what you are doing to the truck and how it is turning out. Nice night pic of the dash lighting, which reminds me of a post where you (Jim) said your favorite color dash lights was green. Personally, I like the blue better than the green; looks awesome! Now, about that 5.0 swap...

Better late than never! Thanks Mike. On the green, I do like green better but I already did green and I had all this blue stuff laying around from that 97 mountaineer decided to use it.

I am seriously out of money this year for anything major and my extended cab is taking a crap (1 cylinder miss and water disappearing) so I have to just drive it for a few months. Need to fix the ex cab my 15 year old is going to be driving here in a few months.

Jim, you are definately not alone there. Your extd cab Ranger with the miss & loosing water is that the 4.0 OHV you were talking about in another post?. It sure sounds to me like it has a cracked head. did you ever pull the spark plug from the cylinder that has the miss? The cylinder that I had the problem with was the drivers side front. Replace the spark plug & see how long it runs good before it fouls out again.
