Northern Virgina Build

So I got her home last week and the last owner had already done the transfer case swap so I'm ahead of the game. Spent today taking the inside apart and fixing the bad coolant sensor message on the VIC. I also am replacing all the speakers, ordered them today, they were falling apart. Having a hard time finding tweeters for front and sound bar. I also pulled the cloth off the sound bar with the intent to paint it black and put it back but like the olive green color it is and now just going to put it back with new speakers. New speakers have built in tweeters so may just disconnect the front and bar and not worry about them.

I run coax speakers in the front but I still use the front tweets, their position makes them very good and they aren't bad parts.

If anything, disconnect the rear door speakers and just run fronts and sound bar.

Congrats. It looks great. The speakers on my newly acquired zj are toast, too. Looking for replacements now.

So today I replaced all the front and rear door speakers with 6.5 Kenwoods and the sound bar speakers with 5.25 Kenwoods while at the same time I disconnected all the tweeters since new speakers all have tweeters built in. Also when I took the cloth off the sound bar I found it was made of olive green fiberglass which looks good so I just cleaned it up and put it back in.

I also disconnected the mirror and seat memory buttons since every time I started truck mirrors went down and seat would go all the way up and back.
