A fellow JL owner who does 3d printing and wanted to do something for the Jeep community. He charges little more than what the material, his time, and shipping costs. I also got his obd2 port cover. I don't know how to do links, but he's on Etsy, his name is Joe, and his company name is ClickOnPC.
Cheaper than the eBay seller and seems worth it

Installed the first speakers that arrived - front corners. Kicker KSC350's. Quick install, made a lot more than $70 difference in my opinion...worth the $

funny, I ordered the same speakers from crutchfield and was supposed to get them today but the shipment was delayed. Glad to hear they sound great.

And, installed the @ORACLElights Oculus Bi-LED Headlights... Quick one night review... I've never seen a line so crisp as the line between light and dark with low beams on. AND, they required no adjustment. They were both spot on out of the box.

No. Honestly, I wasn’t a fan of how the RGB worked. I thought about doing a whole rgb setup with the fogs, rock and interior lights on Aux Switches. The thought being that I would just use the aux switch for turning them on and off assuming they remembered the last color they were on. The reality is that to turn them on, you must use the remote. I don’t want to have to have a remote all the time...

Any issues with the wiring? I thought I remembered some issues with the wiring being opposite of what it should be in the directions?

I wrapped mine around the front seatbelt so it’s kind of pulled forward and sits in the crease between the rear ac vents and front armrest. Not that it would, but i didn’t want it blocking any airflow for the rear ac.

Thanks for the tip. This seems to work better (for me) than hooking it under the seats. I sits better on top of the vents vs. partially covering them.

Crutchfield must be happy as I ordered them this week too. Mine will come in tomorrow.
You guys that are replacing your OEM speakers and using the Metra adapters, check the polarity of the wires. I had to switch all of the wires in all of my Metras. My thread has references, if you dont want to search.

Yes, I called Crutchfield and bitched at them for their weak instructions that did not cover these particular speakers.

For these, you do have to use the 3 wire crossovers that are provided by kicker in the box, then splice positive (white) and negative (black) to the harness adapter provided by Crutchfield.

I was looking at aftermarket antenna, but most of the reviews that mention reception are negative.
That sucks. I guess I'll stick with the silver whip.
I am on Wrangler #4 and I have always cut my antennas down to be even or a little lower than the roof line. Have never had an issue with reception.
