Need to replace speakers in front any Help?

I need to replace the speakers in the front of the Jeep. I have great speakers to put in, but not sure how to go about it. I have done lots of speaker installation before, and I know that sometimes the whole dash has to come out... It's a 91, so I thought I would ask for ideas to save the pain if possible.
Thanks again.

I replaced mine with Sony Xplod three ways 4X6. It is a pain to reach up in there and do it, you need a deep socket. But I did mine without taking anything loose but the little plate beside the courtesy light and the courtesy light. Mine is a 95. The passenger side you can reach up in without taking anything loose.

There are speaker enclosures that mount to the hump under the dash. JC Whitney has them with and without speakers. I think they would direct the sound a little better...

I just replaced my lil brothers in his 94 YJ. they are and always will be a pain. the easiest on the drivers side is to remove the gauge cluster. you can unscrew the covers and slide it out somewhat. then unplug it on the left side(if you are sitting in the drivers seat) this way you can easily remove the top nut. there are two on the bottom also. On the passanger side just be patient. there are two nuts on the bottom and one on the top. good luck

Wow just did the job yesterday! sounds great...but what a pain! something like 3 1/2 hours... and I've done a lot of speaker installs... not something I would recommend for the faint at heart. Most of the dash had to come off...
Thanks for all your tips.

Yea, i tried to remove my speakers, hmmmm id say over 20 times. I just cant do it. You guys are saying to use a deep socket to uncrew the nut, the deep socket wont even fit into that tight spot. But anyway, im glad you did it. You wanna come down to Connecticut and do mine?haha

Big Mike, ever try those gear wrenches? I have a set and love them. I haven't tried them on my speakers, but they may be just the ticket. I don't worry about my speakers...I'd rather listen to that sweet sound coming out of my flowmaster. I am not coming to Connecticut, but if you want to come to PA you can borrow them.

I know it's an old thread but I'm finally giving the dash speaker replacment a go as I had to do wiper linkage and fold the friggin windshield anyway.

Started on the pass side as I figured it would be the "easy" side. Blowing my mind as I pulled the bolts on the glove box, latch screws, glovebox door straps and still can't get this piece of dash to move.

Nuts for the speakers are looking like 4mm. Does this sound right?

yeh... and all of them aren't to bad. it's the one on the driver's side top left that is impossible. it has more to do with the frame than anything else. I couldn't see a real way of getting in there, even with all the work I did. I finally got i off, and simply left it off with the new speakers. No trouble with that at all.
