    Nice, let me know how they sound when you get them installed. I plan on replacing mine some day and $80 a set doesn't sound bad to me.

    Hmm, looks like I'll probably be going with these anyways. A bit more oomph from them.

    The total for the sound system I want is $1015.... Haha but I'll just be getting a new head-unit and amp wiring kit first. That way when I do finally get a sub and component speakers it'll already be pre-wired.

    Just please do not wire your sub and components on the same amp unless you get a 5 channel

    Haha don't worry, I've been in the speaker game before. I'll be running a mono-block amp for one 10" sub and a 4-channel amp for my component speakers and tweeters.

    Mines a little over that but I love it crystal clear vocals. Bass is moderate. Obv no great lows but mids and highs are great. Good for me

    Yeah, I used to want a lot of bass back in high school. Now I just want everything to be nice and clear sounding. Hopefully the stock speakers with a new head-unit will hold me over for a little while...

    I didn't die...and it's not a match, sadly, but I am now the owner of an "old man tan"...or is it light gold??? topper :D

    New (Used) "Old Man Tan" Topper, FOR THE WIN!!! by Kathy / Analog Soul Photography, on Flickr

    Doesn't look too bad...but I hate gold, so we'll see how long it lasts in this color. At least it's fairly close to my color and light enough that it won't get super wicked hot in the Florida sun.

    The guy I bought it from had it on a green DC, so obviously he was the second owner. He didn't know the brand because it's got no identification on it that I can see. The windows had been blacked (literally) with black paint by the original owner...so I talked him down a bit on price because of the work I'd have to do to get it where I would like it window-wise...I'd like to see out of them at least some.

    It's a pretty good model with two locks on the rear hatch, carpeted interior, third brake light, and interior light. I've only seen one set of black/red wires though...wonder which light they're for.

    Overall I'm happy, I've got a weather proof cover over the back of my truck and also pretty secure...so it's all good. :)

    Contemplating racing stripes, a NOS sticker, & some glasspacks. I hear they make you go faster...
    I was driving down the highway this morning and noticed some vibration & a strange noise coming from the driver's side. Before I could pull off to investigate I noticed a roaring sound accompanied by violent shaking & a strange odor.

    I thought I was going to lose control, but got it over to the shoulder before any major damage occurred. Turns out I was having a blow out, but I suppose it could have been worse...I could've blown a hole in my shorts.

    Can anyone recommend some really good upholstery cleaner? :poking:
