I'll be running that same tube. It's the standard.

I'm curious to see the fit of the 37s.

We are both gunna be full width and on foa coilovers.

How do you plan to mount them front and rear.

Time to enter the Grand Cherokee of the Month Contest. I can't wait to see you get LA's on this thing. Maybe I can see some of the work when I get to Amarillo for my lift install. If it gets here this week, perhaps this weekend? I'm really not sure now since I've no word on the shipment so far. If it's not here to install until Memorial Day weekend, I'm going to be disappointed. I had planned to leave for Colorado that weekend, and I don't imagine anyone would want to do the install then either.

My door controls stopped working. Took the door off to resplice the wires. I do realize that it can be done with the door still on but I can't get my big *** hands in there to do it.
I also got in my pa/siren last week so I decided it was a perfect time to install it.
Since I didn't really want to remove my front bumper to have the speaker behind the grill the next best location I felt was where my factory air box was.
I used a piece of 2" flat strap 1/4" thick for the backing plate
This is the best place I could find to mount the controller what was easy to get to and wouldn't affect my driving.
it is still very loud even with the speaker being under the hood.

How bad were your door wires there? oO I've had good luck with mine so far, and my Jeep is older. I wish that Chrysler would improve their electrical in these things. Darn I get tired of little issues.

What kind of air intake do you have since the factory airbox is out of there? Does a cone filter still fit down in that area with the PA speaker there?

The wires really aren't that horrible to fix. I just have to take the door off where other don't have to because I can't get my big hands in there to fix it.
Here is my air filter

That's a cool filter setup. What type is it, and where'd you get it?

Btw, I should probably get your work schedule for weekends/days your work so I can better try and arrange a day to meet up and get things installed. /off-thread meandering

All of it after shipping was 160 I think. I got the controller from another member on here and I got the speaker from ebay.

Finally they came in!

I wonder why they took so long. I got my other set yesterday. It must have been shipping issues.

You have everything ya? Well except springs.

Have you thought how you are going to mount your coilovers?

The rear I am goo.g to do similar to the way Saturn did it on the white whale and as for the front I am cutting out most of the inner wheel well and coil bucket and making some hoops and a spreader bar.
