Well...... I forgot to charge the camera last night and it died after 5 minutes. We took several from my cell phone, so hopefully they tunred out ok.

Most body damage in a trip, The Farm was was out of control. When we rolled up they were carrying rigs out by crane. Monster buggies everywhere- 54"s, 49", 47"s were all over the place. We tried all but one of the obstacles and completed all but one of the ones we tried. The TJ did awesome! Small flop in a ravine and I rubbed up on two trees... the wife wasn't happy.

Here is a shot I pulled from the camera before it blacked out:

Keeping in mind that this build is now supposed to be a triple threat- rock crawler, racer, and still a decent daily driver, I found a cool little upgrade that will help inbetween the off-road outings.

The jeep blew out a stock speaker in one of my pods last week, so I headed out to Best Buy last night and picked up some Marine Grade Polk Audio speakers.






Pulled the stock out, there's a little difference between the two:




Getting wired up:




Ran them to my Sony amp instead of the head unit. I took out my sub and decided to run the rear speakers off of it instead. I've had this amp for over 12 years and it still keeps on rocking!




All finished up. I tried to mount the new covers, but they wouldn't fit without more modding. I was tired of it after an hour or so of dealing with wires, so the stock covers went back on.







This got me fired up with the stereo. I'm thinking about building a small custom box for like an 8" sub, instead of the 10" I was running. New front speakers will happen eventually, but I have to take my cage out to get to them..... so we'll see how soon that happends.

Nice Jay, I have those exact same speakers and they are so much nicer then stock! Not a whole lot of low end bass but decent and crisp mids and screamin highs.

I love the Rockers! I wasn't a fan of the bias 37"s, but the radial version are killer off-road. They are pretty smooth on the road, but also pretty loud.

37" radials is want I bought as well. Lol when I unloaded them I had to double check that it was a radial as I've never seen that aggressive of a radial. I did learn about the road noise. At 65mph its all you can hear, unless I turn the radio up

Wait till after 1500 miles or so when they break in. I call it "calling in the air support". It will sound like a squadron of b52's are flying overhead.

Jeep is looking good man! I myself am looking into speakers soon as mine are about shot from rain/dirt/dust. Think you will make it back to Crozet any this year?

Tineye wasn't able to find it in 1.9B images, therefore it must not exist.

Google released a photo matching search last week.

Here's what it found.

Continuing with the sound system upgrades-


I was hanging out at a neighbors pool party this weekend talking about building a custom box for the back of the jeep when one of my wheeling buddies said he used to build those all of the time. So a couple of rum and cokes and a sunburn later I brought my plans for a sub over to Bill's place.

I needed something that would allow for a fuel cell and the rear seat to fit with a sub, but wasn't quite ready to tackle the "sub in a seat" project. So we decided to build something that would tuck nicely behind the passenger seat. When I say we, I cut a few pieces of wood and let Bill show off his expertise . I did do a very good job of drinking his beer though..... A reputation my Colorado crew will probably get a good laugh out of .


First up was cutting some of the panels:


Bill jigsawwing out the sub hole:


A little wood glue to help with the screws in holding this thing together:


Basic frame screwed together. Along with the 10" MTX competition sub:


More test fitting- it's a micro box, but it's going in a daily driver race rig, so compromises need to be made:


Bill adding some seam sealer to air tight this thing up:


Side hole for the wires:


Welcome to the suck. I swear it took me 2 hours to cover this thing:


Finished up and ready for install:


Final product:










I couldn't thank Bill enough for the help.... or the beer.

Speaking of which, he just put in the Rokmen 1/2" body lift on his rig. Hopefully we will be raking these things over the rocks on Saturday at The Flats off-road park.

Bill's 1/2" Rokmen body lift:

Box looks good. Couple things I learned when I made my first box 9 years ago and is currently still in my jeep:

Use 3/4" MDF from Home Depot or Lowes when or if that plywood breaks apart.
Buy poly foam, the stuff that looks like white cotton, to stuff in the box. It will make the sub think it's in a bigger enclosure and give you better sound while saving space.
I used the brackets for the front speakers so I could stuff 5 1/4 (I think that's the size I used) or 6 1/2" speakers in the dash. Stuff that poly foam behind them and inside the sound pods and you'll have a nice setup. You can push them with an amp but that's a little overkill for a jeep in my opinion.

Hope it all comes out well, I'm wiring up a new amp in my TJ this week.
