  1. Help Confirming Parts for Radio Upgrade

    I think you meant to quote the OP, jeepnurse_jl
  2. Plug and Play amp upgrade to basic system

    I did. First, I found the cost of the harnesses at the link TJJL19 mentioned too pricey for me, for what you're getting. They look well made and all - but, they're "just a harness". I went with the Pac AmpPro module - which comes with a harness - and its been great. It also provides you some...
  3. Anyone Replace Door Wire Connectors Yet?

    That is a great conceptual idea; I'd be concerned with the size though & ensuring it all fit in that little cover space. I also only have a 2 door JL (4 door JK as well, but irrelevant) - I'm curious if the issue affects the rear doors at all or are those plugs fine?
  4. Anyone Replace Door Wire Connectors Yet?

    I’ve seen many threads about people getting bent pins after taking doors off and putting them back on and connecting the wiring connectors. Causes power door locks & mirrors not to work and other things sometimes. Upgraded my sound system this weekend and getting the driver side power locks and...
  5. Who is using the PAC interface on a 7" successfully?

    I finally got around to installing all my stuff. For my install, I am running the KTP-445U amp. Being a smaller Class D amp, I was able to tap right into the factory radio harness power & ground wires. For remote power, I used the 12v DC adapter in the front dash. For my sub - which is mounted...
  6. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Yes, those last 2 RCA’s are labeled as non-fading and are what most of us are using to feed our subs. I used them today to connect to a powered sub (integrated amp) and it works great.
  7. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I didn’t look at wiring diagrams when I initially did my speaker connections, because I kept seeing conflicting info about them online. So I noted which wire was on the capacitor side and which was on the other side and did my battery test. For all 4 3.5” speakers, + was on the non-capacitor...
  8. Help Confirming Parts for Radio Upgrade

    What do you mean by upgrade your radio? I’m not understanding why you need those parts for any sort of audio upgrade. I’m looking at them again, & it looks like you want to swap out the 5.5” radio with another Mopar one that costs around $1250. I’m not sure if that’s the 7” or 8.4” radio. I...
  9. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    You used to be able to buy a nice T-Harness for like $45 that was used in the $1300 Alpine amp/sub upgrade kit, but they stopped selling them separately. The PAC AmpPro comes with a T-Harness to connect to your radio and then the factory harness plugs into the T-harness. Then you run RCA’s from...
  10. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Thanks! And you are right about the remote wires. I was just rereading the amp instructions and it is clear to me that the one on the side of the inputs/RCA’s is what should go to my 12v DC. I won’t be using the other one on the output side of the amp. So I’ll be doing the reverse of what my...
  11. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    My bad on the Input / Output sides of the amp. I updated the picture & the questions in the post to reflect the correct labling. Yes about the Yellow/Black; like Varilux, I intend to tap into the factory radio harness, per the Alpine instructions, for both power & ground for this amp, so thats...
  12. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Ok, so this weekend is install time for me (Base 7” radio). After exhaustive research & re-reading this thread & the thread @Varilux created, I've gone the Alpine KTP-445U and Pac AmpPro AP-CH41(R.2) route. I've got an inexpensive powered subwoofer (Rockville RWS10CA) arriving in a few days...
  13. PAC audio & JL audio fix 86 static issue

    Don’t know if any of this will help but it’s a little instruction sheet that came in a wiring kit I got from Crutchfield. May not hurt just to review and see if any of the guidance in it jumps out and helps you find the culprit...
  14. Apple Carplay Screen "Twitching" Effect

    This is what the flicker is actually showing when it occurs:
  16. Uconnect 7" screen flicker

    I posted in the other thread as well; https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/apple-carplay-screen-twitching-effect.52593/ An example of the flicker:
  17. Apple Carplay Screen "Twitching" Effect

    Haven’t seen anyone show an example for those that don’t know what we are talking about, so I held my phone & took some video. It is so random. I have a 20 JL 2 door with 7” and am using car play. I “think” it only occurs when CarPlay or Android Auto are in use - but haven’t confirmed it. I’ll...
  18. How to Secure a Subwoofer? Brainstorm with me?

    I like that box - checking them out now - but correct account on Instagram appears to be frostbitebox.com_ and website is frostbitebox.com
  19. Underseat and regular powered subs

    You ever get around to installing the sub? I’m trying to decide on a sub - don’t need much especially since I have a 2 door. Curious how yours is with top up and down as well as where you mounted it. I’m just looking for a little “punch”...
  20. Who is using the PAC interface on a 7" successfully?

    This is with the 7” head unit? What other amps/speakers are you running all the way around? Were new speaker wires ran for all speakers or do you have some factory speaker wire still being used? Did you talk to PAC & troubleshoot or did your shop talk to them? The PAC EQ is off? What about rest...
