Got to take the jeep out and play with it some yesterday. The quick disconnects are really nice.

Here are some pics. Hopefully going to get it painted soon and get my flat fenders installed. I think it flexes pretty good for 2" of lift.

Started working on a rear seat sub box. Doesn't look all that pretty but should get the job done. Specs will be listed when I'm done

The box is 29.75" wide, 14.5" long, and 4.25" deep. Resulting in 0.58 cubic feet of air space.

Obviously going to have to use a shallow mount sub. Debating between pioneer or a Rockford fosgate.

I cut roughly 4" of foam out of the seat cushion to fit over the enclosure. Then also cut the bulging piece of foam off the back support to gain some more up travel for the foam and sub enclosure below.

Decided on a Rockford fosgate r2sd4-10, 10" shallow mount sub. Not sure how well it's going to work with the air space I have. Going to have to poly fill the enclosure and go from there.

Then got some renegade rx62 6.5" full range speakers for the sound bar. Renegade is made by Rockford fosgate so I figured I'd try them out.

Also ordered a set of speaker adapters to fit 5.25" speakers for the dash. Haven't got speakers for it yet.

Alright here is the final product of my rear seat sub box install!


Everything test fitted and ready to be pulled back out and wired. Also since the enclosure was so small I poly filled it a little bit until most of it was loosely filled.

And here it is all in the back of the jeep!


The box was sprayed with plastidip to hopefully be water resistant at least, for those days caught in the rain with no top.

Alright here is a mock up for everything that I did. The measurements are a tad different than was I actually used on my box listed above. None the less this would still fit and accept the rockford sub I used as well. Rockford recommends .70 cubic of air space for this particular subwoofer. I had .58 cubic feet before installing the subwoofer in the box. Also on the 97 rear seat there are two supports in the center run from front to back of the seat that I cut out for the sub. The box rests on the rest of the frame of the seat that was there before, and is plenty sturdy. Had to remove four inches of foam out of the bottom of the seat and i removed around 2 to 3 inches of foam out of the back rest at the bottom of it.

This is all using 3/4mdf. measurements are from the outside of the box, taking into the account of the 3/4 of space taken up by the mdf sheets. The mounting depth at the listed specs would be 3.5"


The base cut here for the bottom of the enclosure would be 29.5 inches wide and 14.5 inches long

You will need to cut two of these. One for the top and the bottom.



The next pieces you will cut will be the front and the back of the box. They measure 29.5 inches wide by 2.75 inches tall. Two of these pieces are needed.


Next you will be making the side pieces. Which are 13 inches wide and 2.75 inches tall. Two of these pieces


Some general measurements again:


And the top piece that will be the same as bottom 29.5 inches wide by 14.5 inches tall.
The hole shown here is not centered. That is why there are no measurements. It also is a 10 inch round hole. The hole you will need to cut depends on the sub you are installing.

And as everyone is wondering on price!
4'x8' 3/4" mdf sheet: $17.28 (sheet was damaged on one end)
Liquid nail: $4.00
Rockford Fosgate R2SD4-10: $57.95
Terminal input for sub: $5.00
Amp wiring kit: $31.00
Amp: Used the amp of my truck for now. Older sony xplod 625watt

TOTAL: $115.23

Got to get out and do some wheeling for my birthday. Had a great time and the jeep really surprised me again. did a 4 star trail that I thought it would never make it up.





The rest of these pictures are from a trail called ultimate adventure at superlift.
