Polyfil is the stuff inside pillows.... And the sub box is where the subwoofer lives in the back if you got the alpine premium audio

Paul,

Thanks for the info. I'll have to consider doing that, as mine will have the Alpine audio.

Still sounds good....I think the MOPAR headliner kit helps too

I ordered mine from Northridge4x4....

http://www.northridge4x4.com/shop/tr...gn-pair-27270c

and if you'd like you can add the anti-flicker harnesses right there too...

ALSO - I decided to take the silver bumper insert off today - the fact that it doesn't match the grille was starting to drive me crazy - we'll see if I like the solid black bumper haven't taken the rear off yet as that actually involves taking the rear bumper off - the front I was able to do by just removing the grille.

Did you put in a grill insert while you had it off, Paul?

Nope not yet... But since it takes all of about a minute to remove the grille I'll do something eventually

no its silver - like all the other Sahara's

or if it's mineral grey - its just not quite the same color as the grille so it had to go

Ok so I spent the morning with Omar and Joe over at Maximus-3 today - great guys - very friendly and knowledgeable! Got to check out some of the new stuff they're working on that I think are pretty sweet. I've got some install photos too - but I'll put that in an review post later....for now just more eye candy from after the install!

Looks Great man! love what your doing!

How are your truck lights holding up? I would be all for the JW-Speakers for my copperhead but im trying to take my build in a direction where it looks like it was built up from the factory (if that makes sense) Since this is my business vehicle i need it to look as nice as possible when i show up to my clients homes, as much as i would love a rock crawler look I cant lol! I still cant get over the look of JW-Speakers for my copperhead. I think other colors like gecko,crush,anvil etc pull them off!

Do you notice that "X" in your light pattern, if you do does it drive you nuts?
