  1. Autostop Eliminator

    SmartStopStop was life changing. ESS just worked terribly, at least in a stick JL. No fun to have the engine turn off right when you hit the clutch to start from a stop and have the engine stay off. Crazy annoying and borderline unsafe.
  2. How to Secure a Subwoofer? Brainstorm with me?

    I didn't. I have an amp under one. The sub just took up too much footroom for the backseat passengers. I fold my seats down constantly so I didn't want anything that would impede that.
  3. How to Secure a Subwoofer? Brainstorm with me?

    I installed a Kicker Hideaway 8" Powered sub in the storage area under the back floor a little over a year ago. I used security screws to secure it to the bottom of the bin. Not perfect, but hopefully prevents the basic knucklehead from easily getting it out. Really happy with the bass from it...
  4. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Here's a link to my experience: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/adding-an-aftermarket-amp-s.6568/page-11#post-635072 I suspect you are having a similar issue where the resistance is changing with temperature and you are just a bit over the threshold for the radio to be happy. I...
  5. Connecting DRLs on a Sport S

    Took some pics last night. Halos off: Halos on: Halos on in the garage: Switch at bottom of dash (small blue LED when on)
  6. Connecting DRLs on a Sport S

    Yes, I've been running with them for a while now. What part are you interested in hearing more about? The install was pretty straightforward. After you figure out how to wire through the passenger firewall grommet, it was pretty easy. I drilled a hole low on my dash under the headlight control...
  7. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    One note about the Kicker amp with build in DSP. I installed the 4 ch version and what I found was that at even moderate volume it will "reboot" when ESS restarts the vehicle meaning the sound cuts out for about a second. I think it gets into an undercurrent / undervoltage state. I tried a bunch...
  8. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I'm glad you were able to solve the problem. I went through exactly the same issue ((my post: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/adding-an-aftermarket-amp-s.6568/page-11#post-635072) What resistance did you end up using and at what power rating? I used two 47 ohm 5W resistors in...
  9. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I just completed my install of all new speakers, amplifier, and powered sub. Thanks to Sting and everyone else who contributed to this thread. I also wanted to pass along a solution to an issue I had that I haven’t seen addressed here or elsewhere. Quick overview of the install first. I started...
  10. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Does anyone have any experience with the Kicker IQ500.4? It looks like it might be a decent solution since it accepts speaker level inputs and has built in DSP. https://www.kicker.com/iq5004-4-channel-amplifier
  11. Jeep Wrangler JL Stock Sound System

    Good thoughts. The one thing I definitely missed was that a bass blocker on the soundbar speakers would impact the subwoofer since I tapped those wire. Good catch. I'm reluctant to install an amp based on what I've ready here. It looks like a bit of a hassle since most have described the need...
  12. Jeep Wrangler JL Stock Sound System

    I asked this in a new post last week but didn't get any responses. I'm posing again here since it is directly relevant to your questions: I have 5" uconnect (it's so awful) and standard speakers. I installed a Kicker Hideaway sub this weekend and it has definitely improved the sound. I had also...
  13. Using Bass Blockers with Subwoofer Installed

    I have 5" uconnect (it's so awful) and standard speakers. I installed a Kicker Hideaway sub this weekend and it has definitely improved the sound. I had also replaced the four 2.5" with Kicker 77KICK25AB. Again, good improvement. The overall sound is still not as good as I'd like. I would like...
  14. Upgrading from the 5" UConnect3 to 7" UConnect4?

    UCnight heard from Tasca that they can't get them anymore. Sorry!
  15. Upgrading from the 5" UConnect3 to 7" UConnect4?

    done. Hope you have better luck this time with them!
  16. Upgrading from the 5" UConnect3 to 7" UConnect4?

    I just got shipping confirmation from Tasca. Ordered it about a week ago. Fingers crossed.
  17. Running wire from interior to exterior of rear?

    Here's my run through of getting a wire through the passenger grommet from the Lighting forum. Maybe it will help: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/tips-for-running-wire-through-the-firewall.20103/
  18. Tips for Running Wire through the Firewall

    I installed Oracle Halo lights a few weeks ago along with their LED headlight bulbs. I like the halos a lot. They are very bright, but be aware they are definitely have a bluish-white color. I have a Sport, so no DRLs. I tied the halos into the heated seat fuse using a fuse tap. That port gets...
  19. Connecting DRLs on a Sport S

    I just completed this exact project yesterday. I have a JL Sport, so no DRLs either. I wired them to a fuse tap feeding the heated seat fuse - F57 (you'll need a micro2 style to do this, not the mini size you show)...
