Correct, for it to be perfect, but cheaper than new shocks and worth a shot. My +3 dts are working great at 6+ inches.

The extension should be a punch, and the screwdriver a chisel, otherwise well done.

It actually started as kind of an inside joke, which is why they are all hammer. We do have SEVERAL extensions, however, that cannot even be used as extensions anymore because of how much they have been used as punches. Not my fault we dont have punches that are 3 feet long! Our screwdrivers are more often used as pry bars though.

Always used as a pry bar. Probably more than an actual screw driver.

I decide I'm not doing anything to it for about 2 months going to do a complete audio rebuild. All of the interior will be coming out. New 0 gauge power and ground to splitters then 4 gauge to the amps. Will be getting a 12in alpine type r sub. In a custom box/amp rack a new kenwood stereo with 3 sets of preouts. I will be getting a audiopipe apms1300 mono amp for the sub. My kenwood for my speakers and my Jensen amp for 2 4in midbass speakers that will find there way to the center counsel. Will also be getting some tweeters on the same amp. Will be getting the big 3 done as well. I know it's not lifts or anything yet. That's next year. Let me know what you guys think.

sounds nice. I would use a kicker L5 or L7. They sound way better and u only need one in a ZJ. I had an 8" squared L5 and it was BUMPIN!!!! Maybe cost a little more, but you get more room for other stuff in the back...other than that, im not familiar with the audiopipe amps....But i can defenitley vouch for the kicker solobaric....BEAST!!!!!

That's why I'm going single 12. I need space. Lol. And these like a smallish sealed box. My amp rack is going to be an extension of the box. And I choose this sub because I want clean bass but loud when I want it too. I can't wait to get out of school. And I'm also gettin 2 4in mid bass speakers and mounting one on each side of the storage part of the center counsel

started working on reinforcing my front towhook mounting plates. almost finished with pass side, still more to go, but working as slow as the wife will let me...

inside plate (sandwich)

marking mounting holes

using punch to center holes...


i know its nothing special, but my front towpoints will be worthy of a helping hand.
