    Got it for 2K, from my GPA, good hands.

    I needed a decent radio, seeing the fact that i drive about 1.5 hrs a day!
    Soo... kenwood deck with direct ipod hook up CD and HD radio and plugged away for a night.
    Final Product:
    [​IMG]
    That Electrical tape up on top, was the product of frustration and the sheer fact that the clip behind it would not go in, so i cut it off. i will file it down next time when i put my sub in but for now, i will live.

    But i cant afford it then because... the alternator and battery both simultaneously took a crap.

    About to start pulling things from the motor for either the timing belt or a whole new motor. Whichever holds the issue. Going to order (on monday) Front and rear Diffs with 4.88 gear ratios with F&R Lockright lockers:D. My Aussie has reeked havoc on my old 3rd. :confused:
