Step up to a set of components from Focal, Image Dynamics, etc. that are properly powered and they'll blow away anything you can find on the shelves.


Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Focal is ridiculous in price... I run alpine type R components and am very pleased

Most of Focal's stuff is worth it IMO. Alpine Type-R subs are great bang for buck. I'd take something else over their components.

...no. No I did not. I also don't have a tow bar yet. She's a work in progress. You can see the exterior thread if you look at my posts. This week she's getting a budget boost and new shocks.

I've heard two seperate Focal component setups at a shop and they sounded pretty effing awesome. Don't think I'll ever put them in a jeep. Maybe a DD one day.

You don't want anything too powerful because you have a young child but yet you have dual 12" 500W subs? My rigged 8" 100W sub and four JVC's would be too powerful for a young child! Not telling you how to spend your money but I would of ditched the subs, got a better speaker amp, and higher end door speakers...

Dual is a "Wal-Mart brand." They may be 500w rated, but they're weak compare to like, JL and others. I also made sure my head unit had separate bass output control so I can lower it when there are kids I'm the car. As far as the door speakers go, they sound great for what I paid, and I'm happy with them until I can afford to drop $600+ on a system. The current configuration cost me less than $350 if I remember correctly, and sounds damn good for being that cheap.

I actually just ordered some from Car-ID. The LED I have over the lift gate was around $15 at Autozone, and you can get them at places like that or Pep Boyz, but if you're going to outfit your whole lighting setup like I plan to (actually just ordered 4 map lights, glove box light, and a courtesy passenger light,) then Car-ID would be your best bet, or a similar place. Here's the link for the LEDs to fit a 98 ZJ.

Are you just here to talk down to people? I get that you might be trying to offer genuine advice, but maybe try to do so in a less condescending way.
