Glad the stereo came out great! It came out even better than I expected honestly, but then again it was all high quality parts and components. I set TJ up with a killer deal on all the speakers, Bluetooth head unit, 10" JBL sub, 4x Polk 6.5" speakers, Kenwood highs amp, Cadence lows amp, and installation. The best part was when one of the guys at the shop looked at the Cadence amp and went "Damn, that amp is OLD." That amp will live longer than all of us probably, no car audio equipment gets made like that anymore sadly except for a few brands.

Forgot to tell you too, the door speakers are Marine rated Polk DB's so no worries about getting water or dirt in the door panels. I have a couple different sets of them laying around, and I think one of them is actually one of the speakers that survived this day.



Like I said, if and when you're ever done with that amp I get first dibs on buying it back!

Right? Leave it to us to then unknowingly proceed directly to the worst part of the entire ORV park.

Literally the first trail we went down.

Yep its a TJ dash panel trimmed to fit into the wj. Those are otrattw.com switches to go with it.

Thanks - how did you mount it? Do you have a writeup? Did you just drill a big hole in the dash for the wires? How clean is the install? I like the look of that.

I mounted it using 3m double stick tape, as long as you prep the dash properly it works fine.

No, no write up, but I do have some pics I can share.

Im not a fan of drilling big holes in expensive and hard to replace pieces, so I drilled a hole through the vent/tweeter cover and ran my wire through there (see pics.)

Im happy with how it came out. All I had to do was trim the side untill it sat flush in the wj's "cubby", the nice part it that since the cubby sits about a 1/4 lower than the rest of the dash, it hides all the trimming you do.

Panel trimmed for otrattw switch plate and it installed.


Switch wirring


Double stick tape, you can also see what was trimmed on the sides


Mounted


Wires running from panel into vent/tweeter cover


Let me know if you have any more questions

Man that is just fantastic. Exactly what I was looking to do. Clean, no holes in the dash, just super. Thanks for sharing! Sorry to hijack this thread, my apologies.
