Actually, the most important fact to note right away is that any switch can work multiple relays. So even if you need 2 or 3 relays, you can trigger them with one switch. The other problem you might...

Ohh grief... Please note the details. Everything is in the details. If it's 1:1, then there would be more argument, but if you're looking at only speaker size, unless speaking VERY generally, then...

Any sub without an enclosure of some kind does not work. The seat is hollowed out and turned into an enclosure. There are detailed writeups on my website how-to and diagrams and buildsheets.

Wow, so many nay-sayers.

FWIW, I built SQ and SPL competition systems in my past.

I designed in-seat boxes for the TJs myself cause I hated all of the other options. The down-firing position is...

It is all about the lights you use. If you put lights up top you need to be using long range beams of some sort, not floods or fogs. If they are down on the bumper, then use fogs to spread out the...

I've done this 4 times, but every time we replaced all the gauges also. In the end it's not hard but the gauge integration would be the catch for me and I'd need a manual to see what is needed....

Is it possible to do? Ya. Sure, anything is possible.

Is it WISE to do? No. Why?
1) You need a 110V outlet for the system to operate, just annoying getting it all configured. You'd also need one...

It isn't cheap. You first need DOT approved housings for HID bulbs, then the entire HID kit, wiring, balasts, etc.. It will be cheaper in the end to get DOT approved LED lighting. I think HID is...

If there is an amp there should be a wire/fuse at the battery or it was likely improperly installed. Either way though, you follow the wires with a multi-meter to see where the power stops. If you DO...

It is only necessary to be safe. If your new lights can safely run with the wire size and fuse ratings you have now, you're fine. FWIW, LEDs are a lot easier to run then regular bulbs so if you're...

Void the whole warranty no, but the radio bit ya.

Not for sure about the 2015's but older TJs, to do full double-din radio requires a totally different dash shell or a modification to the shell.

Honestly I dunno but I wouldn't see why not. To be fair the last one I did was an 01 and YJs before that or fully custom jobs using older TJ parts. I'd do more investigation but... I'd be curious why...

I've made competition winning rigs with 'crap' brand gear. Most brands out there I don't like. Pioneer isn't my favorite but I'd take them over Kenwood. But that's my opinion. I also have seen so...

Non-DOT approved lighting isn't allowed to be run on the street. Offroad, it's peachy. Any talk of non-DOT equipment will get shut down for street use. However the original poster never mentioned it...

Well...

1) ya, to match speakers to that amp, for what they say, it's 75W RMS @ 4-ohms so that's quite a bit. You'd need speakers rated for roughly 60W RMS or better for a solid matchup to get...

Simple test:

Swap around the RCAs and see if the problem follows it. Move 3/4 to 1/2. If the fronts start working, then it's a setting or wiring to the head unit. If the sound stays only in the...

Probably the entire wrong forum for this question. Try Kenwoodforums or something directly itself for these types of specific questions.
