The wiring kit is going into the wj but I need to decide where to put the amp. I wanna see if it'll fit in the side flip up compartment in the back where factory cd changer usually goes. Oh yeah the jl kit came with a line-level adaptor so I can still use the factory headunit for now (saweeet) because I want to keep the steering wheel buttons and I need to save up some more before I go all out with the PAC converter and such
the amp can fit under the rear set on the driver side, just cut the thin metal going up and down and you get a lot of room for a amp.

Only one I have. Took it to gloat to my friends

Forgot to mention I found a spare tire cover floating around at work, so I threw that on so I dont have to worry about my spare getting dry rotted on the roof

Got mine running. The engine light came on and is giving me code P0208. So today I get to check on that and it is leaking water/something green out of the muffler. I will be so mad if this motor is bad.

If it's green, that sounds like coolant. Could be a head gasket, cracked head, cracked block, maybe a bad intake gasket.

Check condition of oil to see if there are signs of coolant in the oil.

If it's green it's probably coolant but I've never heard of it coming out in liquid form usually it just burns it and you get a lot of steam and a funky smell. It could definitely be an improperly installed head gasket or crack in the block

I will be checking that later. If it is a bad motor I guess the company will be sending me a new one. I don't think it is a bad intake gasket, I don't see where coolent would go through it. i would guess a head gasket or head. Not a happy camper.
