Can't wait to see the finished product! I'm ready to order my next JLUR and really struggling to pull the trigger. part is that no colors are a must have like the 3 Punk'n JLURs I ordered. I am also torn between the 4XE and the Eco-Diesel Rubicon. Knowing I want to pull an off-road trailer, and the additional range makes the Eco-Diesel seem better, but at the same time I really like the 4XE. I also keep wanting to see if the 2022 is worth waiting for, and holding out hope the Wrangler Mojave will actually be built. until then i'll keep looking at my old trip pictures and living vicariously through others like you on here!
I really would love a 392 with Mojave setup myself... but no coin for that level of nutty, so I'll be making it work with what I have.

On the Mojave front, I intend to invest in a better set of shocks in the future. Maybe even the hydro bumps. Not that my frame will be reinforced or that I'll have the iron knuckles ... but maybe Reid will be the option there.

Anyway, there is always something. lol

Look forward to what Jeep brings out after Bronco sales start cutting into the market share.

nice! I just got back from Moab trying out my 5.13 for the first time and couldn’t be happier. What a huge difference offroad!

Owl and Fish Creek, Utah

A two day hike instead of the three planned to explore. Water sources were near the ends but not in the middle.

We made camp just past the confluence, with no fire it was an early night to start back in the morning.

Another recommend trail from a local got us to this wonderful loop. Easy walking and well marked, it's going to be a repeat with my wife.

Bullet Canyon, Utah

The final day of hiking was a 6 mile loop down into and back out of Bullet Canyon.

I took some pictures of the nearly full moon as well, but they didn't turn out too well with this phone's camera.

MBQuart MBQJ-STG6A-1 - 800W Six Speaker OEM upgrade Jeep Wrangler (JL) Tuned Audio

Ordered 5/6/2021
Arrived 5/8/2021

Wow, that was fast. I just couldn't resist when I heard about this possible plug and play system upgrade.

7935D4C5-95B4-40B8-B4A5-7A4367446E73.jpeg


Looks good so far:

6593E113-D7BF-402B-9952-824F3E5F9818.jpeg


RCA cables and PAC came with the kit.

Two amps are small but have a bit of heft. Class D, so efficient but maybe not SQ level gear. Will hope for the best.

B5D2E2EC-7976-48BD-B9D6-4D6B19302598.jpeg


The mount looks good. Will test fit both sides tonight after dismantling the dash.

6487C344-2950-42F1-AC1C-B99C454B0A6E.jpeg


Dash speakers look to be quality parts.

5F88BDE6-D4FB-4B17-8406-A42C8F658106.jpeg


The 6x9's also look well made. Can't wait to hear the difference. No going back after the 6x9's are mounted.

14B59C67-DEFA-4169-AF87-56BCF3D22B6A.jpeg


No sub or sub amp, but I bet they will be an add on later. We will see.

I'm hoping that the system will sound good as is so I can regain my cubby for storage.

Slow going as I’m a bit OCD, but it’s going.

Gutted the interior dash. Today I will take out the seats and carpet for cleanup, running wires, and adding butyl damping to the flooring. I intend to get the Armorlite floor system when they have the full 2 door system available.

798E3BD3-DDE2-4D50-B63D-980AA6452FAF.jpeg


I will also take this time to polish the dash pieces as I should have done after painting.

The security module is moved to the new speaker housing, so I took the time to dampen it as well. It's a noisy little beast.

F7E6B409-EF01-4CA3-AC96-FCD005BC30AC.jpeg


The new boxes are also getting a bit of dampening and stuffing.

More to come.

So, I finally got the amps and front speakers tied up.

The PAC location makes it easy to get to if I need to update it for the chime volume. I'll also look into an amplified sub later depending how things sound.

Took the time to polish the dash pieces finally. Not a professional job, but a bit better.

Now I fit the 6x9’s in this sound bar. Got to put some rubber where the sound bar touches the sport bar to keep it from vibrating while I’m at it.
