Re: Another transmission thread!

Also, it has Quadra-Drive and there is no CEL! I've read that it might be the TPS, but I just wanted to see what you guys thought before I spent any money on parts.

Thanks again! You guys are...

Re: More V8 sound

I am absolutely in love with the sound of the Flowmaster 50 SUV I have on mine. I wish I could get new pipes all around and really open it up. But this will do; she's old and I can't afford to put...

Re: Replacing Factory Tweeters

I have another question: if I want to replace the front woofers, do I need to remove the entire door panel? Or, does the speaker grill pop right off like the panel covering the tweeters?

Thanks so...

Re: Replacing Factory Tweeters

That seems like a good approach. I might as well replace the front speakers and also the tweeters while I'm at it (since a lower end bundle of those 4 speakers will run me a little over $100).

Replacing Factory Tweeters

Hey!

Has anyone found good aftermarket replacements for the tweeters that blow in the WJ? Something affordable?

Thanks so much in advance!
