So After A few weeks of replacing my almost entire Cooling system, Im Still loosing coolant. DUN DUN DUN!!!!!
I do see a little gloss on the side of the block near the head gasket. But Also i smell coolant when the heat is on. But no damp carpet... So I think In a week or so im going to pull the head and get it pressure tested since i have a 0331. Until then im Staying off the trails. And only driving it to work and back. about 3.2 miles round trip per day. Barely enough to get up to operating temp. So while im crusing around I figured i could use Some Bump in my system.
With the help of some of my airforce commrades, I pieced together An amp and subwoofer in a sealed box for a total of 15 dollars
My buddy with a tj Had a 12" rockford in his mustang before he sold it With a 250x1 kenwood amp. He was willing to part with them For a future assist on his jeep, which i would have done anyway. Any opportunity to hack on other peoples stuff And bull**** sounds like a good day to me..
Then another coworkers Audio store was Overstocked on wiring kits. so he hooked me up with an older schoche 8 guage with an inline fuse.
Out comes the interior (a good opportunity to Clean the carpets anyway.
I Ran The Positive wire From the battery, Along the firewall right infront of the Cowling/wipermotorers. Through the rubber grommet in the firewall on the drivers side. Up under the dash to the center console where i routed it under the center console through the carpet to the Amp which is under the Fwd Passenger Seat. The fuse is about 8" from the battery because the closer the better. And I used a wire brush to scrape the paint under the back right seat post hole. Which is where i ran the ground too. Because the shorter the ground the better. I hooked all this up to a pioneer headunit, And threw some kicker 5.25" speakers in the roof and doors. (buy one set get one free on the crutch) Total stereo investment now sits at 225 Dollars.
And it sounds Wonderful! For about a week -_- ... Then the 9 year old subwoofer starts to become intermittent. And after an hour with a multi meter and my electrician co worker. We traced it to the coil in the subwoofer. So rather than try and repair it. I used a 50$ best buy gift card i found in a bowling alley parking lot to Pick up a kicker 12" comp Sub At a day after christmas sale at best buy. And after the break in period i couldnt be happier with my now 65$ invested subwoofer/amp setup. Aside from loosing a little space. Its so easy to disconnect it takes me 12 seconds to get my trunk space back if i need it. Picks will come soon of it installed.
