90 degrees this weekend, show me your sound systems, overhaulin' tomorrow!!!

'78 CJ5, CD player does not work, not MP3 capabilities, antenae $ucks!!! I need Sirius/XM, MP3/iPhone, most importantly, the Liquid Audio look cool, but, don't really do the trick in terms of surrounding myself with sound (although they do give me a headache)! Let's see what you did so I have some ideas. I'm already wired for a front and rear channel...

The faceplate in my Tuffy console is blank as well. Too busy concentrating on wheeling when I'm in my CJ.

But the audio drowns out the screaming when I tip over? Seriously, the TJ is my wheeler, and its way too muddy to take to work or out to dinner. At the risk of getting flamed, the CJ is my driver and my baby, hence the need for tunes on a sunny cruising day and park on top of a Prius...

I will be building a down firing box for the two subs this weekend. I have some left over Herculiner so I will probably use it to spray the outside of the box for protection from the elements and so I can use up the rest of the Herc.

What ever you decide to do, I'd recommend shelling out the extra coin for marine speakers and do something to protect the deck and amp. I've been caught out in a summer flash rain storm without the top and doors (bimini ((bikini?)) top was on) and I had just as much water on the dash as I did on the hood.

Food for thought...

Excellent advice as well!

Doesn't look like you need a shift knob either. Remind me to dig out the couple I have in my stock. I have one that looks like a S&W .40 pistol handle and just a plain boring black one. Take your pick.........

P.S. I also have an older Alpine head unit I will let go for cheap. Just in case you get the urge to have some tunes in your rig...

John - Mine was putting my hand too close too, I took the shifter out, put it in the vise and gave it a few quick pulls to bend it back an inch or two. 2nd gear (4spd) is about mid-thigh, 1st is far enough away I don't it my hand now...

I would like to find a knob that matches the JB Fab twins though, a plain black round knob..

To the OP - I have a cheap-ish JVC from Walmart, a couple Sony Xplode 6x9 in the Walmart carpeted boxes sitting on the rear fenders. I screwed a Velcro strap to each box that goes around the roll bar o keep them from sliding/flying around. I also hid a 100w x 2 amp under the seat, ziptied to the bottom of the seat, to give it just enough help to hear it better at highway speeds - I went cheap, just because of the rain and theft issues of an open Jeep left unattended in a parking lot...

Nice set up Coiz. I like the tub you have set up in the back. I need to do that.. fab up a tub header. Of course the stereo sounds great too.
