This video shows you how to install an aftermarket stereo in a 2002 Ford Explorer. The general steps taken in this video are applicable to installing a basic aftermarket car stereo in almost any vehicle.
Repairing and retexturing a Ford Explorer bumper cover
This video demonstrates, from start to finish, how to repair a textured
plastic bumper cover using a hot air plastic welder. After the plastic
welding is complete, the dents and low spots in the bumper are filled with
epoxy filler which is then sanded down to match the original contour. The
bumper cover is then retextured with MicroTex texture material from
Urethane Supply Company. Finally, the bumper cover is painted with Bumper
and Cladding Coat so that it matches the original color.

How to change the radio in a Mazda B3000 and Ford Ranger
This is a how to video on changing out the radio in a 2001 Mazda B3000 Ford

Ford Dash Lights & Shift Indicator Repair
This is a video of a 1997 Ford Explorer with burned out dash lights & an
inaccurate gear select indicator. I show how to remove the instrument
cluster, change the bulbs, & replace the shift indicator. While editing
the video, I noticed that I couldn't stop saying "now". Sorry. You'll see
what I mean at the end of the video.
Why you need an after-market wiring harness or module for your STEREO INSTALL / Deck Install
http://www.gofasthavefun.ca | http://www.metraonline.com
Don't cut your vehicle's wiring harness, use the proper parts! In this
video I go over the basics of aftermarket wiring interfaces when a stereo /
deck installation is being performed.
I explain why it's a very good idea to use the proper parts, that way you
know you're hooking up all the correct wires and making sure your speakers
are hooked up properly and in phase.
In this video I show you products from PAC Audio, Best Kits and Scosche.

2000 Ford Ranger Pioneer Double Din DVD TV / MB Quart Factory Replacement
I REALLY wish I would have had more time to film installing the deadener
behind the speakers in the doors etc. but I just simply ran out of time (as
usual). These things always seem to take more time than you think they
will. Discovering the factory unit with trim is only a DIN and a half as
opposed to a double din was not a nice surprise LOL. With some skillful
dremeling though I made it fit in there like a glove. The AUdio TEchnix
made a big difference as well with the midbass as you'll hear in the demo
song in the next video. Teach me how to dougie has some real clean 808 in
it and it sounds like a night and day difference from the stock setup. The
same day we installed this he texted me and said he wants louder already so
we will be putting an amp in there for the 5 x 7's. I might use a 5 channel
amp so we can get a sub or two in his extended cab area. Thanks for

http://www.4x4TV.TV first aired in 2001 with coverage of the beginning
events in the Extreme Rock Crawling Championships. We still have lots of
that classic footage that we will be putting up just to bring a tear to
your eyes for the good old days.
http://www.4x4TV.TV tested many factory four wheel drive vehicles during
our early days and you can see the tests we did all categorized on our
http://www.4x4TV.TV projected several amazing vehicles including Elsie, our
beloved FJ60 that was my family cruiser and remains in the shop to this day
- and until the day they plant me in the ground. We also restored and
period projected a very nice FJ40 that ended up in the hands of a friend,
"Bottle-a-day Dave." Anyone ever run across Dave Yarington (a rabid cruiser
enthusiast - okay 'nut') please have him contact me. We also projected a
great old Cherokee named Scofield (named after my friend who bought it new
and explored many backroads in it). That Cherokee also still remains in my
family, now driven by my son-in-law and most likely soon to be my
Grandson's daily driver. Proof that good machines never die.
http://www.4x4TV.TV also went on some incredible adventures, certainly our
favorite thing to do. We traveled a lot of cool trails around southern
California as well as the infamous (in the ATV world!) Piute Trail area and
of course Moab. What we love most are the scenic trails! You can find them
all listed on our website as well.
http://www.4x4TV.TV had a few trail tips (which I hope to do more of), abad
product reviews on both items for your rig as well as to make your trail
Hope to see you out on the trail.
2013 Chevy Equinox v Ford Explorer v Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup AWD Tech Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford
Explorer and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Overland don't have a lot in
common. However all three of these vehicle have a very different approach
to powering all four wheels, in other words, they all have one form or
another of all-wheel-drive and terrain management technology. We thought it
would be interesting, informative and fun to try these three very different
AWD vehicles off-road in a real world test to see which one can best handle
our Colorado Mountain off-road terrain. In this battle of 4X4 people
haulers we take all three vehicles up our standard rugged Colorado trail to
see which one can make it all the way to the top. Check out another fun and
real world TFLcar Mashup test as we get wet, muddy and rocky in this
off-road AWD technology comparison and review.
