Yeah, they are pretty cool, well the subwoofer isn't supposed to be anything crazy... It really is just there to add some subtle bass that the speakers don't give, you can really tell the difference with and without the sub. Mainly is just there to fill in the bass haha!

Thanks Spokes! Yeah, I thought it was pretty cool, because it's actually better than the Husky liner mat, because that one doesn't have the cargo hook openings!

I guess it is, hahaha! Well I got mine off of Ebay about a year ago, like I said before, I just watched one of these sell on Ebay a few days ago.... they rarely show up on there though since they are sooo hard to find! But keep your eyes peeled for them on there!

That thing is sweet. Def keeping that in mind. That would be better my milk crate. I do have a husky liner but its from a grand Cherokee so I have it folded against the back off my seat. But it still works. The carpet in it is to keep stuff from sliding

Great build, very similar to what I would like to do with mine. Always nice to see it before hand though. Did your mpg stay reasonable after the tires and the lift? You must be single, there is no way between my dogs and the girl friend I can keep a truck that clean on the inside for more than a day or so .

They are rarely posted there, but they do come up there every now and then...

This is the European Ebay link, the only thing is, that you have to translate their currency into American currency obviously, I used Google to translate it for me:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/
So I found the part number of the 4-Switch bezel, and I found an online mopar wholesaler who has it listed for around $23. Think I should pull the trigger? I haven't decided if I want to use the switch mount for an Ext. Idle switch, or for lights.

Looks good man. Whatever you do, don't trim the fenders or go with a bigger lift. If you want a good DD, stay with your lift and tires and it'll be perfect. It's a slippery slope once you start doing more extreme suspension mods than you already have.

Yeah, that box can come in handy for throwing straps and tools in! Your cargo area looks pretty clean too!

Thanks! Yeah I know, thats why I went with the best quality mild lift kit! At the moment, I really don't feel the need to do anything bigger with it......

How does it drive on the street? I have about a 20 minute commute one-way on the highway every day, and take the occasional 3hr trip to the coast or to the in-laws. Would you REALLY recommend this lift and tire combo over stock?

Jeep looks great, btw, thanks for posting.
