I have never had an amped system before. Will the battery run down pretty quick if you are listening to the music when the jeeps not running?
The jeeps got a hide-a-trunk, the amps will go back there, Will it get to hot for 2 amps back there?
I would do as suggested and get two 2 chan. amps, 1 amp for the front/rear speakers and bridge the other for the sub. This will make controling the sound quality much easier, especially if you have a sub pre-out you more than likely have sub woofer controls on the deck unit.
If you drawing alot of amperage (high wattage system) yes your battery will run down quickly, you can offset this with a capacitor or two and a good battery (I like Optima's).
Ensure that the amps have either internal fans, this will alleviate any over heating problems. I doubt you will have a problem in the hide a trunk, unless you seal it with dynomat or something.
I have a sub in mine (which is preamped) never had a single problem with overheating.
