Re: Front Speaker replacement help, PLEASE
Back when I was married, the wife had a Suzi sidekick four door. She want to trail ride with it when we went jeeping with friends. Oddly enough, the Suzi had more cargo space, go figure.
Anyway, the front approach on these little rigs is pitiful, so I bought a Calmini tubular steel bumper to replace the plastic one that was so low to the ground you could hear ants gasp as you drove over them.
Replace a front bumper. Simple job, right? Not on this rice burner. First the plastic grill has to come off, 12 screws. Then the headlight frames, 8 screws. Then the boot that covers the front of the bumper, about a million little screws. Then the boot that covers the top of the bumper, you guessed it, many screws. Now, I am down to the bolts that actually hold metal to frame. Drop the factory bumper off, put the new, custom on jack stands and scoot it into place - holes are off by about 1/8 inch(or the metric equivalent, since this is a jap jeep). So out comes the drill and three new carbide tip bits later, we have a new bumper.
Then, of course, all the non-bumper related parts and the billions of tiny screws with them had to go back on. I couldn't convince her that the Suzi looked COOL without a grill or headlight frames.
I didn't have to buy a screw for a year.
The next ex-Mrs. Traveller gets a Jeep, no more Jap knock-offs.
I think Jeep is the last automobile with made with more metal than plastic.
