Anyone replaced the factory sub enclosure with the standard trim?

I bought a new sub to replace the crap factory unit, but it doesn't fit. I'm thinking that my best move might be to remove the factory enclosure, put the standard trim piece in (I presume I can order this through my dealer), and then build a custom enclosure for the new sub which I can also then use to mount my amp. Anyone know how easy it is to replace this trim piece? I figure it can't be that hard.

If you're going to cover it up anyways, why not just remove the sub and build/install and save the coin.

I thought about that, but I want to have the ability to remove the enclosure and have it look stock.

New sub is too deep, probably by about an inch and a half. I could build a collar for it but the enclosure's only thin plastic, so I figure I might as well do the job properly, take the enclosure out and build a new one from scratch. I just want to fill in the trim gap when I remove the plastic sub enclosure, is all.

I replaced the sub-tub and put in the flat panel. You need to also purchase the other little piece that wraps around the seat belt mechanism and attaches to the panel. They are different part numbers. I got my panel for $95 and the top part for $20 from the dealer.

Hi, I replaced the sub with the standard panel as well. Also, had to order the small part that covered the Roll bar, by the seat belt. The Part# was the same for the jeeps with or without the subwoofer. but my original piece did not fit.

When the dealer ordered it for me, they put a revision on it.

Sub Replacement

I replaced my sub with a JL 8" sub model 8W1V2 and it fits perfectly. No modifications.

I have a larger sub, and anyway the plastic housing is shit; there's no volume to the stock enclosure and it isn't ported. Although I was going to re-use the stock unit, I'm actually quite glad of the excuse not to.

I have the stock non-sub pieces up for grabs. I took mine out to bedline the rear and never put them back in. They just snap in. Mine should fit a 2012-2013.

Free, pay the shipping, PM for info. I was going to list them later in the classifieds anyhow.

I think mine were gone within a day of posting this. These panels and the seatbelts were casualties of my bedliner. The bedliner is awesome, but to thick to reinstall the panels, and since the new shoulder belts are molded into the panels, you loss the cover for them too. The only solution to that was to buy 2010 shoulder belts because they come with their own cap over the real.
