I have JL Audio 6.5" components in the front doors, which of course includes a tweeter as part of the package. I can tell you the factory tweeter does NOT use the same connection as the factory door...

Ha that Ford guy is absolutely wrong. The speedometer and odometer work "together" so to speak. If one is wrong, they are both wrong. Going from 31.9" tires and then up to 35's then back to 31.9 will...

What makes you think it is blown in the first place?

If you can physically reach under there and move the tire around a bit, then yeah it is probably loose. Tighten the winch/adjustment cable back up using the jack parts. All info about it is in owners...

Yeah they are a bit hard to get to with those front O2's.

Also, hate to burst your bubble, but you got incredibly ripped off at the dealer. Bosch O2's work great and are $69.99 at AutoZone. These...

Out with the Toyo's and in With the Falken's!

This may end up being more of a horrible review of the Toyo's than a praise of the Falken's, but I can't say enough about how much I disliked the Toyo's. They were one of the least liked tire I've...

First, get a 2nd opinion on the rack as to what has failed. Perhaps, since it is all electric, there is a sensor or something that could be replaced as opposed to whole rack. If it is the whole rack,...
