Ordered boss 4 channel amp and another set of boss component speakers to match the front door speakers. All from sonicelectronix. Next i'm going to but another boss amp to power my two twelve jl and a boss capacitor. I'm also changing out my in dash tweeters to a boss set I bought a while ago. My right one is cracking. I'm trying to change my whole system out to boss.

Thank God I have remote start! This piece in my ignition tumbler broke! This little metal piece that cranks the engine sheered off. It only went into the on position but wouldn't crank the engine. So I had to order a new one and it was one that would match my key. So I had to figure out how to put it together without instructions! That took 2 hours. The hardest post was to find out how to put on these little key reader metal strips. But I got it all together and our works great! Got it off Ebay for 24$! Not to shabby.
Here is the package it came in.

Here are the key strips that I had to match up to the grooves of my key.

Here is were the piece broke of the tumbler. You can see it on the right side of the tumbler. 1373338317007.jpg

I am doing my headlight wiring harness upgrade Thursday! I have all the parts and will have the writeup on my phone ready to go. I'm tired of sucky lights.

Still haven't gotten around to my headlight upgrade yet. I ordered the summit cap rotor and wires along with the msd ignition coil. I have three days off this week so I'm going to get some dash pieces from the jy that mine are broke. Finish installing my 4 channel amp and change out my stock seat covers. I also have a leak on the passengers side I an going to rtv everything under my windshield wipers. I hate this leak! Hopefully by the end of the week I won't have to work on the Jeep for a while!

Been a while since I upgraded this. Nothing too major other than the headlight wiring harness and a Durango 160 amp alt. I'll post pictures later.

I didn't put them in. I tried to but they kept sliding everywhere. I tried to drop the jeep on them. I took them to a shop that charged 20 for both of them. He told me he froze them them first. It shrinks them so they are easier.

Ok good I read somewhere freezing them works good so mine are sitting in the freezer at home now. I plan to install them tonight after I get off work. I have a big bench vise I might be able to use to get them started then a buddy across town with a press if I cant get them in.
Thanks!

They put up a fight but I won!! Lol just tightening up the last bolt.
Used lots of grease and my big bench vise and they squeezed right in.
