I have question for you cj5 owners that are running a 350 small block with side pipes. Can you guys/gals even hear your radio will driving down the road at 50+ mph. I really want to put a radio in mine, but I kinda feel like its pointless.
I installed a system in mine with speaker lock boxes and all and a console mounted cd player, that was many years ago, I have not turned it on in a couple years, totally pointless for me, in michigan there is more top on time than top off. I too have the 4.2 liter, with the top off it isnt bad. But with a softtop and anything over 45 you wont hear the radio. I wish I wouldn't have installed one.
I can hear mine with the top off at 55. 304 with side pipes. the cd player portion is worthless though. I suggest get something with a front aux input and use your ipod or whatever you may have. I got the head unit 2nd hand off ebay for like 30 bucks, then I picked up a cheapo no name mp3 player because I figure it will get ruined
I have a cheapo Pyle radio I gor for $25 new, and 5" sony speakers to fit in the dash from Walmart on clearance for $15. The radio has ipod hook up, usb port and sd card slot. Fits in the stock hole for shaft radio. It works great I can hear it with the top off going about 50 mph.
Except for my CB used on the trails, no I don't have one.
Question for those who do: How loud must your radio be to hear it? Are you "sharing" your music with others in traffic? With my soft top up or down, there's no way I could hear it without it being LOUD.
I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
