Tires from the same vendor also? Or grabbed locally in Thunder Bay?Thanks guys, yeah I got them from ebay for $130 and there aluminum not plastic. I can get the venders name if you want.....and the shipping was FREE!!!! Well the last rims I wanted were discontinued too. So now I'm getting Moto Metal M0959's...available and ordered with nitto trail grappler 295/65/20's. I sure hope they fit nice.They will be here next week...to bad I won't be home for 2-3 weeks.

Thanks for the info!fastNugly, ebay vendor name: e-autogrilles. As for the tires & wheels i went through Mr Wheel Deal on the net...so far they have been good guys to deal with. so for 4 295/65/20 Trail Grappler was only $1369..the moto metal m0959 for 4 $1059. even though they charge for shipping they are still cheeper then discount tire...that was a surprise for me. I did try to give the local guys a chance, but the wanted $800 more per set of 4 295/65/20 Trail Grappler.
is this in Buffalo?I have most of my stuff shipped to a place across the border (RYDENS BOARDER STORE..they also have 1Lb bags of beef jerky there!!!), then pick it up there. The rims and tires were only a $100 more to ship to my door in Canada. But then you have to pay an import fee too. yeah I noticed that the air sensor was tricky to take out as well, and it did help with the sound. The combination of the CAI and the 14" Magnaflow sound real nice.
Got any sounds clips of the 14" Mufflex and K&N CAI?I live in Thunder Bay On, So for me the boarder is only a 35-40 min drive. Yeah I got the magnaflow from mufflex. It's a great kit and a easy install. The combo of the magnaflow and the K&N CAI sounds really good.
BTW mufflex uses real magnaflows, they just add some extra pipe and everything lined up real good. not 1 problem!! Just do it and you won't regret it!!
Did you do anything else besides cut the holes to put the subs in? I mean air/sound can leak in the opening of the covers....I put these two sub woofers in today little under 3 hours with all the wiring ect. I hooked up the left & right front speakers with T- connectors behind the factory radio. Speakers $65 each, the amp got at a flea market $10 wiring for the amp $20 total $160 ain't bad!
Hmmm, interesting. Never thought about using existing cover due to the same concerns about sealed or ported holes.
Seems like a good idea.
Im sure it sounds better than the present Alpine sub (if there was one originally), Im sure it will sound good to most people and worth a shot at first.I wonder if you add a rubber foam strip (like you would use for weather stripping on doors and windows on a house) along the top edge of the compartment to give it a better seal, if that would make it better.
And maybe make a port hole too.
I know nothing about subs and enclosures or the airspace. I figured eventually I would do a fiberglass enclosure like somebody did here, but this seems easier and faster. And I totally understand this may not sound like "money" but I've been a little lazy lately.
Not a bad deal at all!My truck just came with the factory stereo and it thumps with the 2 subs:git: I got the idea of doing this from searching other sites and they had one for $700 that was made from molded plastic (one piece) and it came with the 2 subs without amp. The other site I seen is the one for Alpine and they want around $600 for one sub and amp. Like I said for $160 not a bad deal oh and a few beers. Also need to mention I still have room under the subs for gloves tie down straps etc. The subs are only 4 inches in depth.
Love them!well there here and there on!! I'm Very happy with them. A little bit of rubbing at full turn but just let off the wheel 1 1/2" and no rub.:smileup:
We are thinking the same thingThanks. no rub on norm driving at all. The truck has a leviling kit, 2 1/2 in front and 1" in back. Thats as far as i'm going to go as i have plans to buy a 27-32 foot camp trailer. I don't think it would be good to have a big lift if I want to pull something that heavy.
Yup! The trailer :smileup:are you asking about the leveling kit or trailer? leveling kit is a supreme suspension. As for a trailer maybe a trail runner or Dutchmen. Either way I'll most likely buy from the U.S.. The Nitto Trail Grapples I got were $1400 U.S. and here in Thunder Bay they wanted another $800 on top of that..so $2200 in Canada for the SAME tires!! So I'll most likely get the trailer in the U.S. as well and save big cash.
