Your frame looks amazing, I have some rust I'm going to be working on in the same spots that you had, just not as bad, I hope...

The new bumper looks good BTW, your jeep looks much better now than when you got it
Thanks! I definitely think it does too

I decided to go ahead and install the JL audio 4" speakers in my dash. I saw no point in waiting for my sub box to be done.

Installed (upside down) and filled with Poly-fil


I found it hilarious that I had mud splattered onto the passenger side speaker. Thats through the dash panel I removed.


You know you drive a TJ when....


Here's half-ish of my in-seat sub box. Should be done by tomorrow. Don't hate on my ghetto-fab sawhorses / work bench

Ok time for some pitchers, and plenty of them.

I'll continue where I left off. Box progress:


I don't have a pic of the box fully painted. Use your imagination. It's black

Cutting the seat foam



More poly-fil



Test fitting




Fits great, time to get this ***** put together!



My mess



And everything installed



The wires look much better right now than they do in the pics, but I still need to do a bit more clean up.

The system sounds and works great. Looking back, everything went together better than expected. I am quite proud of myself for putting this all together. I have never wired anything more than a pair of turn signals before, and I definitely haven't ever built anything like that sub box before.

Big shout out to SirGCal, I used his plans for the box, and he helped me out greatly along the way with tips and troubleshooting for various things.


Onto some other things I have done. I used some McAlisters "Plastx" on my windows, to help with the scratches. These pics don't do it much justice, but in person the difference was very clear. My windows are now a whole lot less cloudy.

(Too many pics, cont. in next post)

Before


After


Recent trail damage

I hit a small sapling, and it broke the orange (amber?) cover off my turn signal. No worries, they are amber LED's underneath, and it still works fine!


Here's a funny one. Remember that non working Viper alarm from earlier on in the thread? Yea, it was just unplugged.

How deep of a sub can you put in those seat boxes?

You will need to use a shallow mount sub. Not sure on the exact measurements, but I'm pretty sure you have like 5" or just under 5" of clearance.

The mounting depth on my subs is 3.42", so I had plenty of clearance.

Nice build...Been thinking about the TNT 3" fenders recently. 4.5" seems too wide for me, how do you like yours?

Thanks!

I agree, the 4.5" looks too wide. I love mine though. Since this was the first time I ever did anything like that to the Jeep, I don't really have anything to compare it to, but I don't really think it was all that difficult to install them. I did it completely by myself, and it took about 2 hours per side. The hardest part was trying to figure out where to re-mount everything.

Fwiw, I like the 4.5" flare fenders that you have, but then again if I ever do flat fenders, I will still want my tires mostly covered; they throw way too much stuff in the jeep when not covered enough.

I have the 3" flare version. They do indeed throw quite a bit. I get rooster tails at all 4 tires just from driving down a wet road
