Uh..uhhhh. Don't know what you're talking about, coax or comps. I'd be powering them with the stock amp. I'd have 6 new speakers, because of the the added 2 with the 5.9 sound bar.

The reason I asked about the mounting, was because the stock speakers use a three point mounting system versus four like many aftermarket speakers.

I see, my 98 limited (5.2) 6.5" speakers dropped right in.

You'll probably be looking for a nice set of coax's then. What I can recommend depends on your budget and if you plan on sealing the doors up.

i just drilled new holes and used the mounts that came with the speakers. unsure on sound bar size however.

as for me today, did an oil change and overfilled it a little. now gotta let some out and ofcourse right after i took a shower haha..now gotta go back under and get rained on again.

oh, and at work i ordered in a set of MB chaos in the 16x8.5" size and going to test fit on some 255/65/16 tires on them when they get here and see if i wanna save up for a summer set and run my stock stuff in the winter. i think they will look soooo sexy

new driver side axle shaft before it blew its brains out and noticed a new wheel bearing would not be a bad idea

is there a seal in the axle that keeps gear oil in there if so mine might be leaking

Loaded the 'hounds to take them to the dog park, then stopped to take an artsy photo of a grain elevator being demolished.
And I checked the oil.

when i bought my niner the last guy had used some low pressure fuel line for one of the cooler lines, so i replaced it right away. and today that new line ruptured and dumped all my trans fluid over my front brake and headers. so i had to wait 7 hours for a tow truck, because the hose clamp was turned so i had to take the fan out first, and it was a -35 wind chill. but the jeeps back home now. hopefully the trans didn't run too low and damage it. ill see in the morning

Yes there is. It is an internal seal in the diff housing. I swapped out both of my front shafts and tore the passanger side seal. Will be getting that done in a coupel of weeks, just gotta keep topping up for now I think.

Last night I re-fitted my Delta Tech 250 driving lights using the stock fog light harness so now I have 6 AUX lights. 2 delta's and 4 on my roof. Will grab some pix tonight.
