Newbie Jeep Owner in NC

Hey everyone,
Just stopping by since I have been nosing around in here a good while before I bought my first jeep a little more than a week ago. I have always wanted a jeep since I was a kid and lots of years later I finally have one after being an avid toyota fan for most of my life. I just bought an 04 Wrangler Sport and love it. Bought it with a brand new besttop top and also got a bikini top thrown in. So far I'm loving it! I do have a couple of questions though...

Most importantly there is a creaking noise underneath the gearshift...you can hear it easily with no music and at low speeds.....also on bumpy roads of course....not sure if something is loose or whether a good lube would clear it up. I just wanted the forums opinion so I don't get screwed at a dealership to have it looked at if thats where I end up. Then again it is a jeep..maybe this is normal?

I was also gonna ask about what you guys have for audio systems. My jeep has the sound bar...and I think the speaker thats in the console is blown in mine...I am pretty sure anyway...I know there are some in the dash too. Just looking for a place online or something that would carry speakers or alternatives for the jeep. I just want something that sounds good...nothing too crazy.

Anyway....thanks for the help in advance.

reasonable prices i have heard of alot of people replacing the dash speakers with 5.25" speakers but there is a mounting bracket needed to do so because the stocks are 4x6" speakers.
