I installed the front 3.5 mbquart speakers yesterday myself....what a difference! Going to do the 6x9's and knee ones next...Upgraded the front upper dash speakers and the soundbar speakers to MB Quart.
The dash speakers made a huge improvement to the highs and mids. They sound so much better over the alpine system dash speakers. The 6x9s in the sound bar are an improvement as well. I didn't bother to remove the soundbar to cut out the opening so just used a sheet to cover everything in the jeep and used a cordless dremel to cut out the areas I needed to fit the 6x9 in. Pretty easy to do if you take your time.
When I installed my bumper, my ratcheting box wrenches were absolutely invaluable. I only had a short arc of movement but that was enough.got the front bumper on. the install was good. but it was a pain in the @$$ in a couple of spots in bolting up. i have to figure out how the hell i'm going to tighten up the outer nuts and bolts. a normal size wrench or socket will not fit. i'm thinking stubby wrenches might work.
i hear you on the tight space. had a hell of a time jamming my hand to place the washer and nut. do you think a stubby wrench would fit to reach the nut. the bolt is no problem.When I installed my bumper, my ratcheting box wrenches were absolutely invaluable.

Yes everything else is all stock. I went with MB Quart because they designed these as a plug and play for the JL and JT so it was pretty easy to do. There's no splicing of wires and they include the wire harness that just plugs into the old speaker wire. Here's all the speakers they offer for the JL/JT. I went with the 3.5" and 6x9". The 6x9" comes with the mounting kit but they do sell that separately if you want to use a different brand of speaker.everything else is stock? Like HU and the rear sub? this is something I think I need to do. How did you decide on the speakers? I haven't researched anything yet. I have my volume almost maxed all the time.
Repositioned GMRS radio, thanks to the help of forum members.
The now super-popular Midland MXT275. Used to be under the driver's seat, but I moved it to under the glove box in the passenger-side footwell.
Couple of guys here gave me the knowledge needed to tap electricity in series with my cb radio, so both can run off of Aux 3. No longer taking up a 12V plug, and wiring is much cleaner.
Added a mic extension, and it is pretty unobtrusive now, just sitting next to me.
They are Motor City Aftermarket doors. The fit and finish are great. The welds are very nice.What tube doors are those?
