So my friends ex-girlfriend was wanting to sell her 98 durango a couple months back, she wanted $1500, I offered her $800 and she took it, its 4x4, has 145,000 miles, and this thing runs good! its a beast! so I got this durango for $800, the power steering hose was shot out, I replaced that, ($20 fix) next thing I did was had my local car audio shop install a Kenwood deck to replace the old stock stereo and they also ran an amp wire kit and installed 2 pairs of 6.5 speakers in the door ($300 for all), then I found an Arc Audio 900.1D amp for $200, I got the amp under the 2nd row seat, This amp is powering 2 Alpine Type-R subs that I picked up for $250, my stereo sounds very loud now, I am satisfied with that for now... (my wallet is not satisfied, lol) but was wanting to do something else, but not sure yet... looking for cheap things to fix it up and make it look better, its a brown color as you guys can see in the pics below, Was thinking next maybe having the windows tinted darker, it has factory tint right now, but I dont know... any suggestions or help on the next thing to do would great, maybe new headlights? or I dont know, this is my first durango, it is a 4x4 but will probably not be using the 4x4 much, this is just a ride to cruise around locally, I have another car that is gas friendly that I use for long trips, (since I only get 9.9 MPG in this durango).. thanks alot guys and I hope to have this durango looking better and running better soon and I will post pics with my progress and your guys help should get me there, thanks!!
Bought some more Ebay items today for the hell of it..
I got a 16" billet antenna.. the short 3" one I got is too short and gets NO radio stations whatsoever..
I got a black license plate frame.. and a rear winshield wiper blade (until i get a 2nd gen rear wiper arm, anyone know where to get one cheap online? or should I just hit my local pick n pull?) and I got some chrome tire valve caps lol
Picked up these 22" chrome rims today, got them for $500 and they came with tires also.. the only thing that sucks.. is the tires are REALLY low pro... Im talkin 265/30 .. 30 is a bit thin for the durango.. Im thinkin 265/40 would be better? or 45??
295/30 I mean, sorry, I found some 305/40/R22 lexani tires for $500 brand new.. I might need to pick those up but first I ran into some more minor problems, took it to the shop to get aligned and now they say bad lower ball joints and bad idler arm, I will have these replaced within the next couple days, I will do it myself, heres a pic of the durango WITHOUT a jack under it..
