  1. Help with first Audio Mod

    Dodge Caliber Interior Mods, Audio, Video
    Hey everyone! I just joined. I was wondering if I could get some help. I recently purchased the Pioneer AVH-P8400BH 2-Din system. First off, will this even fit in my 2007 caliber? I did purchase a new Nav Bezel.I'm waiting on both of them. My other question is what exactly do I need to make...
  2. Header installation photos and a tip or two...

    Performance DIY
    Got around to installing the header we got off Ebay last month... Allocated a morning to do the job, parked the car in place last night so it was nice and cool to the touch this morning. Step one, jack stands. Doesn't have to be way up in the air, in fact, you only want it as high as it needs to...

    Soooo, I got my 7" DVD Flip Up and the wiring harness for the dvd player. I purchased the METRA XSVI-6502, I had searched around the fourm for a bit and found this. Sooooo I got it and I'm a little confused on what to do now. Here what I have.
  4. CB Install

    Car Audio/Video DIY
    I installed a CB radio in my '09 SXT for traffic and bear updates when I'm on the road ... an invaluable tool if you do any travelling at all. Please keep in mind that I had to get this done with a deadline since I was leaving on an eight-day road trip. There are some parts of this install...
  5. Double Din Bezel (Need One)

    Dodge Caliber Interior Mods, Audio, Video
    Pretty much doing a double din transplant from a stock radio. I need a double din bezel. Not too much worried about the aesthetics of it, its gonna get painted anyway. :wavey:
  6. Stock radio > double din

    Dodge Caliber Interior Mods, Audio, Video
    So my fellow, I'm embarking on transforming my stock din radio to a 7" double din dvd player. I'm not a novice to electrical a/v work. My question is, once I remove the stock bezel and radio, will I just be able to swap in the stereo. Of course changing the harness and mounting...
  7. Cruise- self install or hired help?

    Dodge Caliber Performance Mods - Engine - SXT, SE
    I recently (today!) purchased a Dodge Caliber SXT. I love the thing to bits (a smooth ride, lots of space, great sound from the stereo, fun handling etc...) but it is lacking one of my favorite features- speed control. I've read a couple of threads regarding it, but I'm still left with the...
  8. Stereo Replacement Instructions - Part 1&2

    Car Audio/Video DIY
    I recently replaced the stock single-CD stereo in my SXT and thought I would share. I know for some of you on here this is child’s play, but this was the first mod I’ve done on any vehicle, so I'll describe the process in painful detail with lots of pictures for anyone else who is in the same...
  9. Halo Light Installation Thread

    Lighting DIY
    Hi all, I just spent the weekend installing the blacked out, halo headlights on my Caliber. Let's just say a few expletives were said in getting the old ones out... EDIT (May 18, 2009): Put a bead of silicone around the seam where the clear plastic attaches to the black plastic. If not...
  10. Mud Flap install

    Body Mods DIY
    Flap install Rate 4 out of 10 Install Time maybe 1 ½ hours Cost $15.00 per pair I wanted flaps, Dodge/Mopar doesn’t have them yet for the fronts, (R/T version anyway), so I opted for a universal fit available at our Local Canadian Tire, I assume at Pep Boys State size. They come in 3 sizes, I...
  11. Hood/Bug Deflector Installation

    Body Mods DIY
    Hood Deflector Mopar (Dodge) # 82209248 Price $97.17 (Local Dodge dealership) Some call it a bug deflector, bugs are not my concern. With the sloped nose of the Caliber, it should keep the stone chips down to a minimum. This should be used in conjunction to the “ikea type” directions...
