I wonder if speaker pods from a 03+ TJ would fit? They look a bit thinner than the JK soundbar and are split one for each side instead of a solid bar.

Not a bad idea. It would be worth a try.

Bulkhead & Hardtop are fitted.
Next step is to seal the bulkhead around edges.

Is that top similar to the freedom panels? Can you remove the very top of it? Also its not looking good for the overhead speaker pods but I'm sure you can figure out something for sound behind the seats. Nice work BTW looks like a good time.

Exactly like the freedom panels. In fact, I am pretty sure that it is the exact part #.

Not sure about the speaker pods yet. I will find out soon enough.

Decided to rhinoline the interior of the bulkhead & surrounding areas.
I thought it turned out real nice with the contrasting silver rollbars.

Smoothed out a line beneath the door, so now there is just one seam instead of two. I like it much better.

Looks Great!!!! Just one question for you. My Avenger kit came with no roll bar help. Could you tell me if the roll bar piece in the Mopar kit bolts or welds in. I cant find any info on it but I want to make mine look a little more complete with the top off! Thanks Sblaine!!
