well, if you go with the o-ring, which i think would be best, and you want to make sure the screw doesn't come out, and if you can't get a bolt/nut on the back side of it, you could always use a toggle-wing nut... I used them before in another vehicle to do very close to the same thing and it lasted over 6 years and is still going strong ;-)

I would have went a different route with the subs but if they work for you that's all that matters.

I was kind of limited on which ones I could use because they had to be the slim design to fit inside the boxes. I also didn't want to spend a fortune on something that may get destroyed or stolen. I am a bit of an audiophile at heart, which you would know if you'd have seen my home theater system with 1200 watts of Denon components and full set of JBL Studio Series speakers, but for the Jeep I think this system will round out nicely.

Alpine deck with a 4 channel 100W Alpine amp feeding the 5.25" component Rockford Fosgate's in the front and either 6.5" component or 6x9's in the rear, I haven't decided yet. The subs will likely be powered by a cheap amp to keep the cost down, I don't need a $2000 system. The CJ rocked pretty good before and everything so far has been equal to or a minor upgrade from the 15 year old components that were in it, I think it will sound fine by the time I'm done. I see another Youtube video in the making. Any music requests.

I wish. I'm working home office today and about to call it quits for the day. Having my work computer right next to my home computer can get distracting. But, it is Friday!

Huh, over 8,000 songs in my library and not none of those artists are in it. I'm sure I'll find something that can demonstrate some highs and lows.

I'd go with no-seize on the windshield hinge bolt threads and clear auto caulking, too.

That's why I was surprised about you going with BOSS. You have good taste in all your other equipment. But it's true putting high dollar equipment in a Jeep is very risky. I'm an audiophile myself. Sitting on about 5g worth of car audio equipment I've collected over the years.

Hmmm. Whats going to sound better, the exhaust or sound system? We've heard the engine, next we have to hear the sound system. Start from a mile away, crank it up and drive to the camera. Wonder at what point the camera starts to shake.

For music, how about some Stevie Ray Vaughn or Sawyer Brown?

Yea the exhaust would be the only music I would need. I love driving my 89 Fox with the 5.0L cobra motor in it, need to get a new front wheel and tire so I can start driving it again.

Seems like the factory sprayed a bunch of seam sealer on the inside to seal the holes. (same with the hinge bolts)

Could also put a little 3M 5200 around the outside of the hole then dip the bolt in it and then screw in. Works on boats.

Currently in pieces - all of them

It'll definitely seal it but it won't come apart again!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

I would go with the clear seam sealer. What about some Beastie Boys for the music request?

I would go with Allman Bros over the Beastie Boys, Jerry Jeff Walker over the Backstreet Boys, Lynard Skynard over Milli Vanilli/fake/whatever, AC/DC, Jimmy Buffet, Zac Brown Band, Robert Earl Keen Jr, over almost anything else as well...Grateful Dead, Jackie Greene, the Mighty Zep, Marshall Tucker Band...I could go on and on but I digress...I think I need to take a road trip to Illinois to not only see Coiz's Jeep but also to listen to some tunes on it...
