Today I upgraded my rugged ridge adjustable track bar bolts --axle side-- with a grade 8 9/16 x 3" bolt and 9/16 nut . I had to drill the bracket with a 9/16 drill bit.

Sealed at around 1.25 cubed, I think.

It's the Brutus BXi606, but the internals have been bolstered by an electrical engineering buddy. I had a resister come loose, so he went in and reconnected everything and made sure all the other resisters and stuff won't come loose. So, the amp should be putting out around 600W, but I've heard Hifonics amps aren't exactly putting out what they say they are.

I used the amp to power two Image Dynamics 12"s and never messed with the settings. I hooked it up last night and it sounds great without retuning it. I probably will anyways, but at least there was minimal work involved.

I might have pics later...

Why hurt an already poor approach angle more?

OT:
Filled in the brake pad grooves in my knuckle at a buddy's house and made a plan for boatsides since I trashed my passenger rocker on Saturday. Then building a notched gas tank so I can do a 5" stretch in the rear , triangulated the uppers and ditch the track bar

I don't see your point. This is just a mock up. The bar will be bolted down or welded to the Rad support and then I'm welding a plate on each side to bolt up to the factory holes for the factory tow hook. It will be strong. I have a Master welder doing all the welds.

He is saying why make something that will hang down even further that will hurt the approach angle, he is not insulting how it's constructed.



Make sure to post pics of the finished product

Good idea, but you need to turn the gas on on your welder. I'd reweld those before install or they will be a royal pita when you go to remove them.

Yes that is true about hifonics. But still a decent brand. I'm running an Eclipse amp which is a better brand and it doesn't even push out the full 1000 watts which it is labeled. Any idea how many ohms your sub is? Mine are 2 but my amp can't handle them bridged at 2. Do I'm running them in series I believe. The amp is bridged at 4 but pushing the subs at 2. Series splits ohms in half, parallel doubles ohms is I believe the way that goes. Anyways running 2 12" pheonix gold xmax in a ported box with a 1000 watt eclipse and 5 farad tsunami capacitor. And don't have a single penny into my system. lol

I just wedged a large flat head against the nut and torqued the bolt down. Really don't need the flag nut.

Sounds like a pressure switch may be bad or you have a limit open..maybe the gasvalve isnt opening .
If it releases the gas to the manifold more than likely your burners could be rusted not alowing the flame to reach the flame sensor.

The thing is I don't think I will be doing any kind of wheeling that will be like that or that extreme. This is still a DD.
