Re: Spring A/V upgrade project

Nice work rage. From this perspective prewiring the harness is a nice touch. Very creative with splitting sat signal. Nice choice with the SPRs, they are nice. Haven't heard the new pioneer...

Re: Alpine INE-Z928HD

Im sure you can buy the trim piece from any parts dealer sponsoring this forum, or possibly even, gulp, the dealer.

Re: 2012 Jeep w/22'' Wheels

Adapters are another option for fitting a different bolt pattern to Jeeps 5x127, but the whole spacer/adapter discussion is better left for a different self destructive thread.

Re: 2012 Jeep w/22'' Wheels

Some wheels come as blanks, meaning there are no holes drilled into them. *if* there is enough space for your bolt pattern, some places can machine drill the holes into the wheels. This way you can...

Re: HID Projector Retrofit into 2012 JGC Laredo E

No cutting at all with the TYC housings. They were cheap enough that I thought I could give it a test and very good quality to boot. Alignment is fine, has the same vertical adjustment as stock...

Re: Alpine INE-Z928HD

Interesting that you looked at the autoclimate control (ACC). I installed the 928 in my Laredo with the manual control obviously. There is a bit that sticks up like the ACC but its not as...

Re: Alpine INE-Z928HD

Re: HID Projector Retrofit into 2012 JGC Laredo E

No cutting. Just a heat gun. :-) The LED is definitely bright enough for drl use. Just as bright, if not brighter than the bmw halo's. This bulb/ballast combo is probably equal to the stock...

Re: chrysler 300 fogs possible fit?

I needed that harness for my TRS HID retrofit. The on/off problem was much more of a flicker for me than what I'm seeing in your video. That harness certainly did the trick and I haven't had the...

Re: Large A Pillar blind spot

Agree. This is my first vehicle with an airbag in there, so I attribute it to that. But seriously, I've been surprised more than once by things "hiding" there. My old Disco was all windows, great...

Staggered wheel setup bad for 4wd?

Does a AWD/4WD vehicle need to have the same wheel width on all 4 corners? Haven't I seen staggered wheel setups for AWD/4WD cars or trucks? Is this somehow bad? Thanks in advance.

Re: 2012 Jeep w/22'' Wheels

Did the Giovanna Kilis wheels fit without a wheel adapter? I can't seem to find any in our 5x127 bolt pattern. Love the look and if I can find the 5x127, I'm sold! Thanks.
