If you really look around all of your body and frame grounds on the jeep are attached at points where it's painted.

Seat Bolt, or if you wanna get real fancy you can grind away a small paint spot and bolt it right to the tub, really no need to though.

One thing I have heard and makes no sense to me, is that you actually put in two ground points and hook them both to the amp, was told it will work better. Electricty 101 to me says it would make no difference though. Anyone else heard of this?
