Avenger Supercharger Half Top Install
Ok. A lot to do for the install. You have to strip the back out first. Think about relocating everything thats in the way such as sound bar speakers, subwoofer which as we know is in the back,so you have to dissassemble wire harnesses etc. Prep and paint the top. Pre fab a lot of spots to make cockpit watertite. I probably will fab a rear floor, as well as cutting sound bar to retain my dome light. Im actually into day two with this so here we go! Day 1 strip the back of carpet, seatbelt assemblies. roll bar padding and foam that they use to make it look beefier, soundbar asembly, sub etc. A few pics.
Day two the top and bulkhead arrive. But no windows!!! Called and they are being shipped hopefully asap!. Ok lets cut! Jack from avenger gave me some tips on the install as there are no instructions. I chose to cut at an area as to retain the stock mounting point for the sirius antenna. the fender well was cut close to base of roll bar weld area in case someone wants to turn it back to normal. After cutting a little dry fitting.
As you can see I started messing with the paint a bit. I didnt like the way i sprayed it, a little dry, so I may try to match the grainy look of the freedom panels before i second coat it! I also started seperating the sub wires from the harness that runns to the rear and bring them back into the cab area. The sound bar was cut along with some of the rollbar padding to accomodate the dome light and give it a finished look. heres a couple pics but I have to take more in the morning so you can get the jist of what I'm trying to accomplish. Couple more pics,
Stupid question but is the bottom part where it meets the floor waterproofed or could it be with some type of weatherstripping? Also how big is the bed area? That looks really really good
truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies...
Very cool, keep up the good work.

I'm assuming its not really designed for an exterior application so are you going to seal up the air flow vents or add drainage? Side note, I noticed you painted your fairlead. What did you do for prep? Sand, Prime, and Paint?

Started getting the carpet in place and see how mutch more to trim. Also installed the light in the piece of soundbar I cut. I did this because I hated the look of the mopar j8 interior freedom top screws just sitting against the bare bar. Looked out of place! Now I have to make some speaker encosures. Going to place them against the bulkhead after carpet. The sub will go behind console and maybe replace the rear cup holders. [
