Ah! Good to know. Is there enough power to the speakers? I can barely hear my dash speakers because of the road noise with a soft top. I went the cheap route but I was desperate... my front seat was in shambles and was hurting my lower back and other extremities. So, I went with the OEM Rugged Ridge high back denim black recliner bucket seats. I have not taken any pics yet but I will make sure to do so tomorrow and post them. I just ordered a tuffy full center console to complete the look. Next is carpet. I need to stop upgrading the interior and start working on the suspension. Right now my jeep is starting to look like a highway runner!

Ah! Nice Sliders! Looks great! Was it difficult to take the flares off? I didn't get sliders but I ordered side steps and want to replace the flares. I have read a ton from forums and there are mixed feelings on removing the flares. Nice work.

Well thanks! It's a rough country combo kit, 1.25" bl and 2.5" suspension, the hardest part honestly was the steering stablizer..haha the bolt just wouldn't budge for about 45 min

My speaker bar isnt hooked to an amp. Some stereos have built in amps. Adding one could only help the sound, though.

Not sure who that was directed to buy my alpine deck has like a 10amp built in and then I bought an alpine power pac that is a small 45 watt amp that tucks up into the dash so it's not visible or more importantly stealable

They mount under 2 body mounts and drill 5 holes in the tub. The flares are b/w flares and going back on they are easy to deal with at least for me. Thx they are well made.

They are spendy but I did a lot of trades and parts sales to buy them. They were a gift for the wife. A job will come around keep your head up.

Installing XRC rear bumper and tire carrier today...if time permits extending differential, tranny and transfer case breather vents and new neoprene seat covers. Also changing rear main seal and installing fumoto quick drain valve. Waiting for steering box skid plate and rear led lights, should be delivered today...next project is air intake and muffler not sure what set up to buy...sounds like a lot of add-ons but I havent done anything to "Little Red" in a long time.
