- Don't forget to account for the enclosures.

- I understand it is an issue of taking up space,but that's not really an optimal location for subwoofers.

- You really want two?

Someone posted a slim profile sub that mounted on the swing gate and it was flush with the end bulge of the gate.

saw the low pro subs.. already have a set of kenwood 12's couldnt pass up the deal.. less than 100 for the pair.. boxes arent to big 1.25 cu/ft.. with 50+ inches of space up top my boxes side by side are 42 inches.

im also ready to hit the trails again!!!

new tie rods new ball joints to adjustable trackbar...but i get a vibration around 60 mph

ive read and keep seeing " road force balance" instead of a regular static balance..

have any of you had to do this? Im not getting death wobble it just a shimmy/vibration in the steering wheel at 60 mph

some also say steering box needs to be tightened up. Wat3rdog did you find Jesse? if so let me know i wonder if his shop does that balancing.

anyway.. any and all input is greatly appreciated..

Yes it COuld be done. I think taping and drilling the te roll bar would be better After the cage is built.

You sure you want to hang a speaker box? Kicker tubes would work well up there

What about a speaker tube that mimics a fire extinguisher? You could mount them as such to the rear vertical roll bars. Just a thought. Outa sight outa mind.

Who's got what for on board air here?

I'm debating a few different systems and was curious what you guys have, how you like it, etc.

I had a York OBA system on my TJ and it was great, just looking at options for the JK now.

For compressor call Travis at airwerkz. Com they have a new under mount with tank that's AWSOME.

As for prefill tanks I have 2 4500 psi tanks and regulator on my willies trailer.

And the wife has the 15lb CO2 tank from power tank on her jeep. I you want power tank stuff I can get a little over jobber from them

Another idea is to build a sub floor and mount them, you loose trunk space but is a better mounting location

Thanks, I'll take a look at that site.

Not really wanting power tank-type stuff, though, but appreciate the offer.

Nononono mount the speakers next to the bazookas on the bazooka mount. Then crank up the tunes.

Googled - bazooka bass tube and found these. The first is from a Toyota sequoia for an idea.

You could mount these to the rear roll bars as if they were extinguishers.

You could cut the bottom of an old water can and use as a speaker tube. Might be good for a fire fighter theme of sorts.
