When your plans for the weekend include getting stuck to be able to use your new winch.

I am determined to get stuck or pull some one out and won't go home until I do.

You never hate driving anywhere.
It's never "too hot" outside.
The girls love it...even the ones on your 8 year old son's soccer team...even he feels like a rockstar getting to ride around in it.

When you think it's a good idea to drive down a ski slope in the spring with the family and flip it seven times. True story from New Jersey.

Pretty sad, but this thread is "you know you drive a TJ when" and that wasn't a TJ. Maybe a TJ would've made it down safely, hah hah.

When you can't decide on a windshield decal that says "it'll buff out" or one that says "it's not supposed to buff out"

...when your kids (ages 8 and 10) would rather get a ride to school in the Jeep rather than the Raptor... Like mine did this morning.


I used to live at the resort where that accident in NJ, at the base of that hill! That is not a place to go four wheelin' the guy is lucky they are all alive. Someone needs to hit him over the head with a cluex4... good grief!

When you wear the same old work clothes every night, tinkering with the Jeep and easy mods waiting for more money/parts to arrive.

I have one in my trunk. A slim truck box made by kicker. Tc10 or something like that i think. Box and sub kit for real cheap. 150 i believe. Only thing is you gotta buy an amp separate. Overall a very inexpensive way to add a sub although im removing mine soon.

Nope there isn't an amp. It's in the lowest part of the center console and there is a screen on the driver side to partially expose it. That's about all I know about it.

I think I'm gonna try and build one into the backseat of mine on the bottom and run the amp somewhere. I'm not sure yet. I'm hopefully going to get an alpine SWE-12S4 sub and a Sound Ordnance M-1500

I have 2 10" subs built into a box in the back seat and the amp is mounted on the floor behind the back seat. It is in the bottom section of the seat so it is not really all that soft to sit on but the only ones that ride back there are my kids and they are in carseats anyways.

Do you have photos? And what plan did you use to make the box?

I am saving up for a Yamaha free air sub, no box needed just gotta make a hole in the back of the console and a new false bottom in the console so it's safe from console crap. And install a small amp under the drivers seat, back seat riders get in on the passenger side.
