i traded my nitro rc cars for a real nice stereo. had to hack apart the dash some so it would go deep enough.

Newest horn setup. The Wolo Bad Boy I got from tater, and a set of horns from a 2008 Buick Allure (Lacrosse). It sounds a little lower pitch than in the video. I think I may keep it like this..for now.. haha

They sound good together travis!
I so need to install the new Wolo big bad max into my Jeep. It currently sound like a Toyota with a squirrel stuck in the horn.
The PA horns are ok though.

Thanks Art! I think I'm finally happy with how they sound You should get a similar setup for your Jeep. Even the Buick horn alone is a big improvement over my previous horns. (Air horn and freeway blaster..and even the almost dead stock horn lol)

i went to the j/y yesterday and the day before myself. found a silver park ave with a grey interior. helped myself to several parts. got the passenger door trim, the marble lookin wood trim package, a new b pillar cover cause i busted the clips, a new master window switch, new door panel new dash face and a few odds and ends. had to swap the door lock area from the old panel to the new one, because the j/y car was a base and didnt have the seat memory buttons. also had to swap the dic buttons.

grand total: $55.00

Geez Tater that is a score on those JY parts. Finding the console holder too thats impressive!
I should post a photo of my console and see if you or anyone can find the pop up and out dual plastic holder for mine. Dealer want $150 for it..ya right.

On Sat I replaced the oil pan gasket on the Pk Ave.
Sunday drove 150 miles in the pouring rain and parked car overnight.
Even though pan is a bit wet from the water etc, there is no oil dripping from the pan now!
So nice not to have golf ball sized oil spots below the car every morning.
By the next oil change will have a better idea if anything else is leaking..hope not.
