You don't need to remove the inner fender. Just tighten the funny nut on the antenna mount. I did it last week.

Can I get by using a vice grips to tighten it?

That's what I used on mine. I took a rag and put out between the pliers and nut to keep from scratching it and its been good for over a year now

There you have it. Guess I was wrong. I've been up in my fender before messing around with the antenna before I found the thread on here for bad radio signal.

I used a crescent wrench, put the end of the wrench in two of the slots in the funny nut and carefully tighten it while holding pressure to keep the wrench in the slots. I think that made sense.

The only reason to have to remove the inner fender is to replace the cable or if you broke the whole mount off on the trails.

Got the two inch BB installed with new shocks, steering stabilizer, 245/75/16 tires, and Jeep Icon wheels!

Yesterday, new rear Moog sway bar bushings went on, today...new front sway bar bushings and links! Amazing what a change some bushings can make in the ride and handling.

Redid the "list" for mine since our return isn't going to be near what we were expecting. Looks like its just repairs for the Jeep and no upgrades this time

Pulled the battery out of the green one and put it in the niner. My fun with the parasitic drain has totally killed the one that was in the niner.

Question: my amp might be funky and I'm looking to bypass it. My friend found an adapter harness by Metra once that said it was for bypassing the amp? Or any other ways that are somewhat easy or quick? Not going to rewire my whole audio system...

I haven't heard of anyone making a harness for it. http://www.metraonline.com/part/Chry...arness_70-6514 Looks close, they used the same amp in almost everything. If you have the pinout of the connectors it's not hard to bypass the amp.

Why do you think it's messed up? Why not just put a new one in? Unless you're adding a poweramp the inifinity thing is pretty good.

My rear speakers were only getting bass or bass and one other frequency. New speakers, new headunit. Both fully functional. I found another thread on here about that Metra harness saying it wasn't fully functional and kinda junk

Ordered my front upper control arm bushings and picked up u-joints for the axle shafts in my replacement(stock, JY variety) D30.
I hate u-joints in axle shafts, bit I'm going to use them for the time being, since I probably won't have time to swap out to my cv shafts.
It needs to be swapped out ASAP, since the DS shock mount rusted completely off the axle yesterday.... And the PS spring perch is collapsing too
Life in the "Salt Belt"......
