With the Alpine 9 speaker system, does anyone know where the speakers are located? I understand that there are 2 on the top, and 2 on the bottom of the dashboard, 2 overhead, and the subwoofer in the back, but where are the last 2 speakers located?
There are 4 speakers on the soundbar.

Safety group seems completely overpriced. All models have a backup camera to help you back into and out of a parking spot. For $795 more I'm not sure this safety group is worth it.

My Honda Odyssey has a nice camera built into the right side view mirror which activates when the blinker comes on. This is great for making lane changes. If Jeep added that for $795 I could make the argument that it's worth it. But just for some dumb indicator blinker I'm not sure. I wouldn't trust it the same as I'd trust a camera.

I plan on using the tires included with my Wrangler.
I saw that I could buy 5 brand new JK Rubicon tires and wheels for $250 on craigslist.
If that's all the money I'll get on the JL tires and wheels I might as well use them.

Any accident you have will cost you more than $795, look at it that way.

There was another post on here were someone got either 1150 or 1250 for just the tires. Granted they were buying 35s from that dealership so not sure how that balanced out.

Man, unless my top is off backing out of a parking spot is one of the few times I hate driving my LJ. I'm not planning on getting those safety features due to cost, but I don't believe for a moment they're useless.
I swear, only a cube van is worse...

1. Auto - travel in and out of PGH makes a manual a PIA
2. Cold weather group - necessity living in PA
3. 3-piece colored top - just personal preference
4. Body colored fenders - this look is growing on me
5. 8.4" touch screen - have this in our GC, very nice
6. Remote proximity keyless entry - convenient feature

Net price for said factory JLUR is $48,865 :puke:
Will probably do the Koons deal since they're only 3 hours away from me

Aftermarket musts:
All weather mats - can usually get cheaper
2.5" lift and 35's - love my Teraflex and 35" Duratracs

Don’t forget to reinforce the tailgate and get the tire carrier for 35’s.
