My Uniden 520 has an output for a PA and a switch for toggling between the two. Should be able to hook it up and go!

If anybody, like me, has relocated the license plate, and doesn't want the original left tail light/license plate light to continue to shine down on nothing, it's an easy fix. I removed the lens from the left tail light and used electrical tape on the inside to block off the "window" in the bottom of the tail light housing. No more unnecessary illumination.

I've been wanting to get some disco's, but I'm cheap!! I like this idea. I'm curious though, how long would you say it takes you to disconnect? And how long to re-connect? Thanks!

Get a Uniden 520 (~$40-$50)and a PA speaker for ~$15 and hook it up. I'm pretty sure that it's illegal to broadcast while moving though.

If you get a 3 way switch you can wire it into your headunit and you'll have something like mine where up is cb to talk to people. Middle is off. Down plays music outside of your jeep.

With mine made from those pieces, about 20 seconds to disconnect and and another minute to rotate sway bar away, Bungee the sway Bar links to the Bumper and then your off. To connect can be a bit tricky if not on level ground. If the Ground is level enough, time it takes to un-Bungee (is that a word?) the links, realign to axle mounts, push hardware (Clevis Pin,washer,Big washer, another big washer, small washer and cotter pin) through axle mounts and ready for the road. About 1 minute. If things don't line up, you may have to attach one side as normal and then drive a few feet and try the other side. I have also just put the cotter pin through the outermost hole on the clevis pin until I came to some very level roadway.

Krylon Fusion my interior this week:






Very easy stuff to use, Its a bit shiny so I hope it dulls down after a week or so. We will see how it holds up. Next step is These seat covers.

thank u i was so worried that i might not like the look and then be stuck with it.. i bought at pep boys for i think 79.99 and from what i have seen its the average price. thats for a gallon of it and i used 3/4ths the can. planty left over for touch up when u do find some flaws. they have a sample piece glued to box so u can get an idea of the texture but it is way rougher. for the price u cant beat it. i wasnt goin to 4-800 for linex or rhino liner.. the first week i drove with towels on the floor cause i dindt want to scuff it. lol
