I made a set of those 5 1/4 speaker brackets for my 99 sahara today. saved $20...they work fine except the speaker cover has a small bulge now. its not enough to bother me though.. they sound great now. i also put a set of 6.5s in the sound bar. i found sonys that fit without new holes. took ten minutes!!!!

i made some out of lexan. i heated and bent it to fit the area to seperate the front of the speaker from the rear. there is no air passage between that space. i used sony 5.25" speakers too btw...

did it make a difference? yeah, probably. but now i really dont care too much about that stuff anyways (in the jeep)

I just used some of the white fill to help the sound. that piece of metal is what restricted the speaker from going in far enough.

Looks like a 67 or 68, can't see if it has a vent window or not.

Why don't you go back to your home on whore island?!

Garage
half cab

started with an 04 willey's edition... besttop safari... but the rain dripped in down the rollbar onto the seatbelts... I design body-armor for a living so I have access to some good sewing equiptment... after a couple of hours and a couple of yards of PVC backed 1000D Cordura... OD green mesh rear window... a fiberglass bike safety flag whip to secure the top and bottom of the rear curtain... which can be rolled up and secured to the rollbar if the kids are in the back seat... seams to work for south florida... pics to come when they clear screening

I made this steering box skid a few weeks ago. I am just going to weld it to my bumper, and possibly use 1 bolt hole on the steering box mount.

CB/Scanner Mount

Modeled after the one a lot of you guys have, this was created for about $7.99 at Home Depot, mount screws use original speaker housing screws/mounting locations. They are both powered directly from the battery through the dashboard and out into the engine compartment using an old vacuum power cord that I spliced.

first pic is of the metal









also screwed in the clip (the double sided tape didn't hold up)

Thats a very cool idea - but don't they giggle allot with only one side mounted to the bracket?

Quite seriously, not at all. The metal is 1/8th inch thick steel, and the way that the units are fit extraordinarily snugly into the window frame makes it perfect for the two to not bounce. Also, for help with that, you can see that I put adhesive rubber feet between them to help in case bouncing became an issue.

I built this rear bumper for my wife's TJ from 100% scrap steel I had laying around the shop.

You can't tell, but its actully two peices of c-channel welded together. Even the 1'' tabs were made from scrap.

Other than then d-rings, it was free other than time.
