    I am so glad you posted this- mine has been cranking longer and longer. Unnoticed a few days ago that the wire connecting this is exposed/ frayed. I had no idea what it was and have been meaning to look it up. How much did the new resistor run you?

    50,000,000% upgrade by only replacing the speakers. They're the only OEM part you can feel good about punting into the nearest landfill. I could turn my volume up to max and still have a convo without lifting my voice. Ridiculous.

    Sucks because I just did an alignment last week, have to replace SPCs with these this week and do another alignment, and my rack is leaking so I have to do ANOTHER alignment when I replace that.

    Are you guys taking a brush to the truck or just foaming and rinsing? I'm an avid washer/detailer with a respectable arsenal of chemicals and products but this is new to me.

    Foaming and rinsing will remove a lot of dirt. I foam and hand wash when I have time. Foam Canon does a great job.
