Congrats.... Very nice job!
How about reducing pics in future, before posting, please?

I made a tool box that goes crosswise behind front seats, from a wooden box in which was shipped two coil springs for my diesel pickup .... but could easily be made from scratch!
Pics and cost HERE

If you could post some pics of the process or any other detail would be great. They look good and would love to make a pair.

To upgrade front speakers in my 78 cj (only one speaker in the dash originally) I used a factory tj sound bar, flipped it around backwards and mounted it in the front. I notched it out to fit over the roll cage. Now I have a domelight even without a top!
$50 for the sound bar
$45 for 6.5" polk audio speakers

Probably after market. That's what I did to mine. Like $50 for new ones. Just bolt off old ones and bolt the new one on. Like 30min to do it all.

"If the headlight bezels are already chrome why in the world would I knock off the chrome on a 2004 Unlimited Wrangler and paint it red to match the color of the Jeep. I thought "customizing meant taking off everything that was red and having it chromed or replaced with chromed parts. I'm only 31 so surely I can't be that out of touch."

31? We always said "don't trust anyone over 30." That was before you were born.

1. Once more into the breach, dear friends,
2. De gustibus non est disputandum.
