Cushtech,

Nice clean write up. Thanks. Both my front speakers are toast and I've been shopping for something for marine use and a bit of sound quality at the same time. The dash removable has me skeered for now, but after doing a lift I think I can handle it - maybe?

Hey! We both live in the same place! USA - Come tomorrow and help me

I'm a giant noob... How are the bolts not showing on the front of the dash?? Very stupid question I'm guessing if they are mounting bolts that come standard in your rig, my 92 does not have them. Going to have to do some drilling

Wow, I haven't looked at this tread in a long time...

All 3 of my YJs had factory mounting bolts for the speakers that were attached to the rear of the dash. Maybe the PO of your jeep broke them off? If they aren't there you're going to have to do some drilling.

An update to this thread...
The Polks gave out after a few years. The surrounds deteriorated and crumbled off. So much for "marine ready". I replaced them with some old Morel Dotech 4" woofers and Morel tweeters on the dash. They sound much better than the Polks but then they are a lot more money. I've got some pics so maybe another write-up is in order.

yep, mines the exact same other than the "studs" for the speakers. I just drilled holes in the dash, works just fine! Not quite as pretty, I'll admit, but Oh well!
