  1. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    Just to clarify, I'm using the lightning to USB cable (same cable you charge your phone with), not a 3.5mm cable. The 3.5mm cable should sound fine too, but I just wanted to point out that you probably already have the cable you need.
  2. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    What source are you listening to? The factory radio sounds terrible with XM (XM in general is terrible, but I feel it’s worse in my JL than in other vehicles in the past). When I listen with my phone plugged in via CarPlay it sounds pretty decent. Pandora sounds ok, Spotify is better, and Tidal...
  3. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I’ll probably use their sub amp and find a small but efficient 3rd party subwoofer. I’ve actually been thinking about ways I can leave the OEM subwoofer connected as well, and switch between the OEM sub and the aftermarket sub either physically with wiring, or in a DSP preset. I haul a lot of...
  4. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Good find. Hopefully that works. I found this amplifier on MB Quarts website. It’s similar to the two amps that come with the kit, except it’s a monoblock with built in crossover for the sub. So you could either run the OEM sub off of this amp or put an upgraded sub in the back, which is the...
  5. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Mine came a few hours ago too. I’m kind of annoyed it didn’t come with any printed instructions, and the online instructions don’t include a wiring diagram. I’m sure I can figure it out but how would you sell a product like this? I’m actually wondering if/how the factory sub is supposed to work...
  6. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Mine is out for delivery today. I’ll open it up and post pics of everything that’s included. I’m hoping the printed instructions are more complete than what’s on the website. As for the paper cones, that doesn’t concern me at all in regards to sound quality. I deal with very high end...
  7. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Did you order it too?
  8. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I actually just tried to track it again and it says they’ll be delivered Saturday. I don’t think I’ll get them installed by the 15th, but I’ll definitely get pics of all of the components by Sunday or Monday
  9. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    The instructions leave a lot to be desired. When it comes to the amplifier, the instructions say something along the lines of ‘Refer to the amplifier instruction manual’ implying that it’s a separate set of instructions. It references a bracket for the amps, but it doesn’t give any detail as to...
  10. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    At this point I don’t know anything besides what’s listed on the website, but yes it appears that way. The only thing it seems to be missing is an upgraded sub and subwoofer amplifier. Yes I have the 8.4” and Alpine, but it seems like it works with either system. If it comes with the PAC AMP...
  11. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I hope so too. I design and commission professional sound systems for a living, so I tend to have higher standards. Most of my work is in stadiums, auditoriums, nightclubs, houses of worship, etc. My original plan was to source raw drivers from one of the speaker lines I use for work, and build...
  12. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I was reading through the instruction manual and noticed one of the included items says "AAMPPRO OEM Interface" so I assume this means it comes with the PAC AMP PRO...which explains how they are getting an RCA signal for their included amps. Based on this, I went ahead and pulled the trigger. It...
  13. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I'm wondering about the sub too. They show a subwoofer option for the Gladiator but not for the JL. I plan to put a larger sub in the back anyway, so I'm not terribly concerned about the sub. I really just like the idea of replacement housings for the front 6.5" and rear 6x9's, and I've always...
  14. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    At that price this MBQuart system is really tempting. What I can't tell from their website is if this includes any DSP. They show it includes two amplifiers, each with a pair of RCA inputs, but it's really unclear as to how you get a signal from the OEM headunit into the two amplifiers. If I...
  15. How to determine crawl ratio?

    You need to look at the ratio of the low range of the transfer case. In a Rubicon that ratio is 4:1. In very simple terms, it magnifies the rear axle ratio by a factor of 4. I'm not saying the rear axle ratio doesn't matter, but the transfer case low range plays a much greater role than the rear...
  16. Teraflex Alpha HD Tire Carrier Doesn't Work for 2021

    I have the Teraflex carrier on my ‘21 and I didn’t have any issues and did not require the new bracket. For what it’s worth, I do NOT have the front trail cam.
  17. Scrapes/Gouges in brand new winch drum...will they damage my synthetic rope?

    This picture is from two nights ago, so it’s spooled back in now. I’m going to contact Warn on Monday and see what they say.
  18. Scrapes/Gouges in brand new winch drum...will they damage my synthetic rope?

    I just installed a brand new Warn Evo 10S and when I spoiled it all the way out to pretension the rope I noticed some scrapes or gouges on the drum. Is this normal, or should I be concerned they might damage my synthetic rope?
  19. Need to piece together a quality lift.

    They said it will be about 1-2 weeks until the shocks ship, but I’ll definitely post an update once I get everything installed. What made you decide to go with Metalcloak?
  20. Need to piece together a quality lift.

    Well I pulled the trigger last night and ordered Fox 2.0 remote reservoir shocks from Accutune, and a set of 3.5” Rock Krawler springs plus their No Limits sway bar links and bump stop kit. I already have all 8 Core 4x4 Tier 4 adjustable control arms, plus the Steer Smarts front Track Bar and RK...
