Well this past time it didn't start, I disconnected the amp from the battery. It's started easily twice since then.

Well, jeep started fine again this morning which makes me think the amp was the problem. Maybe I just overloaded the battery/alternator?

Nope lol. I've had two 12" JL audio subs in all of my previous cars, so even this 8" is just meh.

Well I guess I found the problem. Since I disconnected the amp from the battery, it has started right up every time. Now that begs the question, why? Why is the amp killing the jeep? It's a very small amp...

If it was me I'd remove all of the amp wiring and reinstall it. If it still did it, I'd try it on another vehicle.

Okay. Do you think a thicker gauge wire might help? I think it's either 8 or 10. I'm not sure.

If it's not hot to the touch, it shouldn't matter.

Stupid question of the day: The transfer case sits in the skid, correct? As in, it doesn't have any other support?
