New Head unit installed using crutchfield mounting plate and wiring harness. Went in without the slightest problem. I ran the microphone wire under the trim piece where the tweeters are, up the pillar with black electric tape that blends in the the black strip that runs up and down the windshield, and finally clipped onto the sunvisor.

Didn't take any pictures of yesterday, but I ran 16 ga. wire from my head unit to the front door speakers so that I could get the tweeter built into it to work. Going to do the rears soon so I can be completely free of the infinity amp and have new/heavier wire in place.

Washed, waxed, and used mothers back to black on all plastic trim pieces. Vacuumed and wiped down every inch on the interior with leather conditioner. Starting time was 11:30 and finished at 5:30. The end result:

Converting to blue lights on everything. Both license plate bulbs went out so I put in one of these lights over top of the old lights and wired them into one of the old lights.

The end result
*Edited*
Turns out police to not like it when you do this. They let me go but made it very clear that it needed to be taken off. Installed the proper bulbs from autozone

Idea for turning the back of my jeep into a sleeper for camping on the beach for fishing. Measurements are approximate but very close. In the back will be my 22 inch tv and ps3 hooked up to an 800 watt inverter with the tv hooked up to the radio for surround sound

Took the doors off and went cruising today. Looks goofy but I had a lot of fun.

Whoops, I just posted in your thread about this. It's pretty easy and I figured it out myself. Asked a few questions about the wiring harness but nobody could really explain it too me just had to play around with it. Let me know about any questions and I'll be glad to help!
