Puppy aftermath!

They said they were sorry!


While I had the carpet out I decided to tidy up my coax a little and secure it better.

Welp, I think my Alpine Head unit is on it's last legs! It's been acting up for some time now, not ejecting CD's, skipping a lot, and so forth. It is over 15 years old, so I got my money out of it, but funds won't allow such an extravagant purchase right now. I'm considering busting the HU apart and cleaning it out to see if that may help. Worst case scenario, I put my factory HU back in for a while.

I'm in knee deep now!

All I could really do at this point is blow dirt out of the unit and hope for the best. Took the opportunity to clean a few years of trail dust out of the ducts.

All back together and somewhat cleaner.

Time will tell. It's feeding CD's fine now, but it's usually when I'm offroading that it acts up. However, the CD skipping was happening just going down the road on last weekend's trip. Brand new CD too, so it wasn't scratched.

LOL probably full of dust. Talking about your vents reminds me I need to do the same. Too bad there's no way to roto-rooter the ducting out too.

I'd be afraid to see how much real estate is buried in there, lol!

When the funds DO become available, I'll probably go this route.

Nice, I haven't looked at audio since after I had the Z, I think Pioneer was supposed to be making some good stuff then, but that was a couple years ago now. One of these days I'll re-do the audio in the Jeep. Probably stick with a stock head unit and use a line converter running to hidden audio processor stuff (equalizers & such). That way I can hide everything and make it look stock. It's not 100% the best sound to do it that way vs. a new head unit, but I don't think the difference would be noticed in a Jeep with no top.

I agree. No reason to get too carried away with Jeep audio being the environment in a jeep is, well, not ideal for sound quality. I considered putting my stock HU back in and purchasing the line out hi-pass to RCA converters, but that would have run $85, so for a little more I can get a new HU with 3 line outs, Bluetooth, and aux in/USB to play my MP3.

Yeah, my main reason for sticking with a stock HU for now is just anti-theft, but you're already running an aftermarket one anyway

Looking forward to next weekend. Have a run planned up in the Sierras, Slick Rock trail. Spent today giving the heep a once over. The diff vent hoses were rubbing on stuff, so I put some protective cover on the problem spots.
front diff vent rubbing on power steering hose.

Rear vent hose rubbing on rear TB.

Greased up everything and checked for issues. Serp belt has a few cracks, so will need to be replaced this week.
