replacing dash speakers w/o folding windshield

Hey guys I have a '93 wrangler and had my jeep rhino lined. It was sprayed over the exterior hinges. I told the guy I didn't care because I would never fold down the windshield. Well now I want to replace the factory in dash speakers. Is there a way to do this without having to fold it down? I would appreciate all input and if anyone happens to have a pic or too I would be grateful.

i belive on the yj's the dash panel must be removed to access the speakers, and my buddies jeep had screws that ran along the top of the dashboard. so youll probably have to pull it down, take a blade and cut the rhino liner off the hinges, or at least along the cracks and fold it down anyways. Its a jeep thing
heres some pics

Well, you can try and do it without pulling the dash, but it is going to be a beeotch. Pulling the e-brake assembly will give you a bit more room to work with on the driver's side. If you have big hands, forget about it.

The passenger side isn't bad for removal and install, it's the driver's side that is a Major PITA. I tried doing it without pulling the dash and almost got the driver's side installed but because the threads on the mounting studs weren't straight I couldn't get the speaker to align properly and set flush, so I ended up pulling the dash.

Its been a long tome since i had a yj, i know i changed the speakers from behind without moving the windshield. If memory serves i only put 2 or 3 of the nuts on when i did, the 4th was a ***** and not important enough to deal with.
Odds are im typing on a tablet. It takes too much effort to add some punctuation. Im lazy, get over it

Never underestimate the power of stupid.
