YJ Front Speaker Replacement - 5.25"???

I am replacing my blown front factory 4x6 with 5.25". However, it seems there are the mounting bolts behind the dash are too close together to get the 5.25" speaker behind there. Yet, many posts have indicated it is possible. Did they have to cut the bolts or something? Does anyone have bolt diagram so I can figure out how to bolt this speaker in there? (Maybe I'll need to make a bracket or something...)

Thanks.

Mark

You need a set of speekers that have the built in bracket or multi mount fins.

In a TJ, yes this is possible. In a YJ it also is but the installation is far more complex. Every YJ I've done i've pulled the dash and done a full custom setup for them. Not as simple as the drop-in bracket swap for a TJ.

I also have a decent set of 4" rounds. Will those fit in easier? Is there a straightup bracket for those?

The center option is one of the worst positions for good sound. Far more beneficial if you are going to use a non-stock location, and a mod I do a lot for YJ fronts, are the kick panels. A little more stealthy also actually cause the tub hides them slightly unlike the center which is right where every thief's eyes are going first. But even around here, never had a problem with them getting ripped out. Plus you'll have proper sound coming from the proper side. I never recommend the center lower or upper pod systems.
