I would get a high jack or similar type farm jack, If you want the stock part for yours you could have mine for the shipping cost. What exactly is the part you need?

fixed the radio./... it took a 15 amp fuse and i had a 1amp in-line fuse that gave way and i didn't notice it.

i'm pretty sure the air-scoop thing goes the other direction.
facing towards the windshield.

it can go eather way. i like it pointing out rather then in.
i learned that pointing in is called cowl

Its been proven that you get more air flow when its pointed towards the windshield, the lack of aerodynamics of the YJ pretty much bounces air off the windshied and rams it into the scoop.

Nice build, not going to lie, I think the web is pretty cool. :thumbsup:

Not bad so far, the spider web is pretty cool in it's uniqueness.

One thing I'll recommend, if you don't have rear speakers, get a sound bar or make some speakers for the rear! I have a stock sound bar and put some new 4" speakers in it and with the Sony Xplod's up front, I can hear the radio with no doors and no top! Stock fronts alone, I couldn't hardly hear the radio with the top and doors on! LOL

Nice bumper too! Looks like it's in the right hands now. One thing I'd recommend, drop that gas tank skid and paint it up with some good rust preventative paint! It'd look so much better if you did! :)


Nice Jeep btw, I'll keep watching your build, looks different from some of the other builds I've seen here lol

I found a set of speakers in a housing at Walmart for about $20. They sit behind my rear seat and put out plenty of volume without an amp.

I think amps and speakers are not good for wranglers..As soon as you are driving around with ur top off and have your radio loud..Some methhead or neighborhood reject is goin eyeball your jeep and snag it..Ive always have had nice stereos and speakers..I have nice speakers now sitting my garage because I wont put them in my wrangler.

-.-* i know what you mean :ballchain:

but i really want a sub so i can REALLY feel the bas.. plus i love techno
lastly the system that gose in the back of the jeep get bolted down... not the best idea for my money but it is just on my WISH LIST
:ballchain:

ou can do what i did, get a center console/amp carrier/sub carrier and then weld the amp down
i looked into that one but i rather like how the YJ dosen't have a middle bit and my friends can step there to get out when there to dam lazy to move the chair... lol plus the specker would be pointtnig STRIGHT at the people in the back seats and two of one things would happen
1 soneone kicks it >.<
2 i always have it off b/c it hurts there head.:ballchain:
