What type of performance?  Any modifications to the engine?  Assuming stock
or
near stock, one colder might be better for high speed operation, but if you
prefer mud-slogging at low RPM than one hotter might be a better choice.
With
un-leaded gas and computer systems it's a bit harder to 'read' the plugs but
certainly still the best way to tune 'em in.  Just my thought, but with the
plugs we have today the heat range is broad enough to prevent fouling/damage
under most circumstances *IF* the engine is in proper tune and operated
within
it's design.

Subject: BII Stereo Problem
Date: Mon, 25 Sep 2000 21:51:26 -0400

The stereo on my 1990 Eddie Bauer Bronco II just quit about 2 weeks ago.  I
was listening to the radio, then all went dead.  If I turn the volume all
the way up, I can hear the speakers "hiss" a little bit.  I took the
reciever out to see if there was any connection problems, but didn't find
anything wrong.  I've read that there might be an external amplifier in some
models.  Anyone know how to tell if my unit had an external amp?  Also, I'd
like to put in another cassette receiver like the old one....any idea where
to get one cheap?  All suggestions welcome.

Justin

Odds are if you've got an eddie bauer, you have an external amp.  I had to
run all new wiring to my speakers when i put in my aftermarket deck.

Good luck

I am looking for a little more low end - mid range power and better off the
line.  I use the truck mostly for day - day driving with a little off road
sometime.
