I did but the pic is wrong for some reason. They're shaped alpt more like yours than that pic. Rounded corners and 3 mounting holes for the speaker holes.

Ok I'm confused. In the first post you said you didn't buy the NALIN adapters? But now are saying you did? Because the picture you posted does not look like NALIN adapters..

NALIN adapters if bought from him/his website don't interfere with anything been running them now for 3 years, flawless!

The only places to buy NalinMFG speaker adapters are from NalinMFG.com and eBay seller Nalin_Manufacturing_LLC. I have no resellers/affiliates.

Got the Polks in today. Installed without a hitch, must've been a defective speaker. Now if only i knew if buying an OEM soundbar and harness would work, audio would be done.

Why wouldn't it work? It's straight forward to add the soundbar. You can even add PODS like the newer TJ's have instead of the whole bar..

However if you do get a OEM soundbar, get ready to replace the speakers in there also as the stock ones are junk.

Need a wiring diagram for the soundbar too? I can get you the diagram if you need?

I read that you can't add a sound bar with harness in the ones that didn't have it stock. Because there's no place to plug in the harness. As far as wiring diagrams goes, yes please. I'm liking the pod idea will 6.5 speakers fit or is there mods necessary. Will the lights come on with doors and headlight knob?

The harness for the soundbar is in the drivers footwell, look under there you should see a maze of wires.

This I found with a quick search, if you dont have the connector (C323) you can make one. Or simple just run the speakers straight to the back of your stereo..

Quote:
The bottom slot for a connector is 2 pins high, by 5 pins wide, and is where the harness for the sound bar plugs in. If your lucky, they left a blank connector there. I also bought a sound bar used so had to make my harness. I found a 2x5 connector off a friends wrecked cherokee, and sanded it to fit. Then hooked up my speaker wires, and light so that they connected with the respective pins in the terminal block.
Or go to the wrecker and find a Jeep that has the soundbar and take the bar along with the harness off it. If you run it to this main connector down in the footwell area this will give you power for your lights also. If you simple just run the speakers to the stereo, you will need additional wires to run for the power of the lights etc.. I'd simply just make a harness or find one?
