Unbuild to rebuild

Got bored of my Jeep so I decided to unbuild it to better rebuild it. Here is before.

Ho, it's coming back. I am custom building "plug and play" removable speaker boxes that will fit in the back of the Jeep ; That way I can remove them when I go play in the rivers. he he he I will still have 350 watts of sound.

Got the new steering wheel today
and I am going to install it as soon as a get my Jeep back from installing my custom built plug and play removable speaker boxes ( 2x 12" sub. 2x 6" mid + 2 amps 300W)



Moving forward but it is too slow for my taste. If it was only me, it would have been done in 1 day. Ha ha ha
It's ok. It gives me something to do every day and the anticipation is as fun as driving it.

I am thinking like you. I really like the solid black. The other one reminds me of a Tonka toy.

I didn't really want to change mine but, there is a ridge on the inside of my rims and mud gets stuck in there. When I come back to the road to go home the wheels are completely unbalanced. I got a wobble of death last week and that was not fun at all. I almost flipped the Jeep. Scared the hell out of me. I don't need very pretty since it's going to get scratched fast but, it can't hurt either. A big plus for the black mat,,, it's easy to spray black over.

Sure got a lot of louvres (sp?) and hoops and stuff, What is it all for? Do they all serve a purpose or is it more for decoration? Not trash talking ya just curious. Some of the stuff on there looks pretty bad a$$. I like the rear bumper and swing away and the roof rack. Keep us posted on the progress. I think if you simplified it just a little that could be a sick rig. Just my opinion though.

The BOOM boxes are slowly taking shape.



Should be ready by Tuesday.

The guy who is doing them is the best there is in Taiwan but,,, He is so slow. So slow. Did I say slow??? Ha yes, so slow.

I hope that the result will compensate for the slowlyness

Sound system is finally done. Yeah







Can't see the 2 12" sub-woofers. They are hidden in the boxes in order to protect them from mother nature

Gona start the lift tomorrow.
