It will be mounted into a ballistic battery box that will be installed on one of the rear wheel wells in the hatch area. Probably the right side. Im sure I could fit it under the hood, but the engine bay is already cluttered as it is, plus it will make wiring the accessory fuse and relay block under the rear seat much easier. Inside the spare tire well would be ideal, but that will be cut away soon in favor of a tank tuck.

Exactly why I like the under the hood option, my cargo area is full with two 15s, still not ready to grow up, one of my old sound comp rigs was a explorer ( did not even explode when I rolled it haha ) it had two yellow tops in the back with the system it was a tight fit it had 4 12s Rockford old school DVC's with 4 1000 watt Rockford amps. If I did something like that I would lose room for recovery gear. And as far as the spare I am also doing the tank tuck when I do the rear tube bumper with tire carrier. If that fabricator gets off his lazy A

lol, im not ready to grow up either, although I just have a single 12. Thats why the battery will probably be mounted on the right side, the box and amps are on the left.

I used to dd a geo metro. I ran 2 rockford 12's, with 1000 watt rockford amp for each, and a clarion head unit. You couldnt sit in that thing with the music turned up lol. I dont know what was more sad. The fact that the system cost more than the car, or the fact that the speakers were the same diameter as the rims lol.

Haha I blow out the back glass of the explore had to replace it with plexiglass, wow that was expensive. Once I exploded a can of mt dew that was behind my seat must of hit the seat bolts. Even got arrested for disturbing the peace in a small town in north Idaho haha I use to Cruz the down town and set off alarms all the time.... Good times good time :-)

I just replaced my front swaybar bushings and it helped with the popping and squeaking I've had since it started to get cold. Mine were pretty worn out

No, any driver doors Window tint Are not street legal here, like every other mods ells, shhh

And yes the daylight Are only between 0900-1500 These days, thats why i am afraid off the light, and reason why i am waiting hard for my 40" led light bar

That part? Skandinavia?
Norway Are a beautyful country no doubt, if you aint going for skiing in the mountains, make sure to come within summer months, north Norway have 24h daylight all summer, great nature, but be prepared, fillyour pockets with $, its kinda very expensive here, atleast all tourists complain.

I really want to Go to US,,,
Seriously been considering moving over, cause this country/laws isnt adapt to any of my hobbies, everything is illegal here, or cost both arm'n leg.
Really dont want to become one of Those prius or diesel driving monkeys, forced to it due to politic and enviromental bs, no fredom or justice in our "regulated society".

Got these in the post today...all the way from the US of A having renewed my subscription. Thinking they will go one on each side rear quarter window since I have the old style white one across the rear screen. Proudly flying the JF flag in the UK.
