I've read many things about fiber glass boxes. They all say if you havn't ever done any type of molding or anything like that before, get it done by a pro, cuse you'll be wasting your money trying to get it right.

Not true. Do your research, map out what you want to do, make diagrams, gather all suplies needed, then take your time. It'll turn out fine as long as your a DIY kinda guy.
This was my first time ever building a speaker box/enclosure, and working with fiberglass and it turned out great. It has LEDs going all around the amp and 2 cooling fans that turn on automatically when the head unit turns on.
You can do it Plus its fun, and more rewarding when you build it.
I would never - ever attempt to make my own enclosure. Its worth the extra 20 bucks to get it done right. Remember once you screw up - thats it.......
I did my own boxes for my wrangler back in the day with my 12'Pyle Subwoofer but that was because I wanted to save a few bucks and I was 23 years old. They vibrated, they had creases , pain in the ***....

I'm not trying to argue either, just trying to not scare the guy off from trying something. $40 is still nothing. Are you talking about just an ordinary box or something custom? Because when I went to Tweeter and told them what I wanted done, they said just the enclosure would cost over 2 grand. I said forget that, went home and started building it myself. It was only like $200 in parts/supplies (not counting subs, amp, cap, etc.).
and comparing a custom system to changing your oil, come on man, that's apples and oranges lol. You wouldn't go to a meet saying, "hey guys, check out my oil that I just changed. It's so fresh and clean, and has a really nice viscosity."
But anyway, I hope the guy gets what he wants either way. Sometime this summer I hope to start my custom enclosure on the WJ. I'm fiberglassing it into the driver's side plastic panel in the cargo area that way i don't lose any space.
I bet if you checked out the cruzin mags or truckin mags with audio sections, you'll find some ideas.

I'm 16 years old and I built my fiber box for my WJ
It has a Visonik 12" powered my a MA class D amp under my passenger rear seat.
I also put my lift on
I have been around cars since I was 7 since my best friends dad owns a shop, but the point is anyone can build up their own truck, all you have to do is spend the 5 mins online to read up about what you need to do to get it done. The only thing I didn't do on the box was the upholstery, and that cost $80 because I bought the material at Wal Mart. Good luck with the project man
