Put your windshield down and take all the bolts off the top of the dash.I did mine that way and it was a lot easier.Make sure you oil the windshield hinges real well or you will bend the hinges.I bent mine and had to get new ones


Hope this helps

drop the e-brake and their should be enough room to slide it in. I did both without removing dash or droping windshield.

Bonehead must have small hands. That e-brake stuff is craziness I tell ya! Take off the sport bar bolts at the windshield. Unbolt the windshield brackets above the speaks. Take out the bolts next to the speaks (the t-45 size) on each side. Flip down the windshield and then remove all the small screws along the top edge of the dash. Sounds compliocated but it only takes about 35 minutes if you have the right tools. Also If I were you when I pulled out the sport bar bolts, I replaced them with phillips head galvanized bolts from lowes. Makes it alot easier next time!

The easiest way to do those speakers is to take a deep socket 10mm and reach up behind the dash. The factory only puts them finger tight and with the lock washers that enough.

When I did the speakers on my YJ (I believe you also drive YJ), I found that a good sized prybar wedged between the tin and the body (once all the bolts were removed from the windshield triangle and the ones down the side of the body) was enough to squeeze my hand in and remove the nuts and then removed the speaker.

I had to do it a couple times as I needed to make a bracket to push my speaker away from the tin .. I choose the wrong ones .. had a large center piece that stuck out about 1/4". Argh!!!

heh.. anyway.. folded the windsheild down.. managed to crack it in the process from an earlier stone crack. went to gettin on the bolts with my T-27 torx bit, two came off easy as hell.. the other 3 were pretty much stuck.. tried oil etc.. finally had to cut notches into them using my dremel so i could use a flathead to break them loose and get them out.. made the reinstallation easy as pie.. when my good ones show up it'll be a piece of cake and i'll replace the windsheild after i get back from the roadtrip.. lot of gravel roads back there and i figure it'll get some other cracks in it..
