Ha! Awesome rig man. It was fun rolling through this thread and seeing the updates. Can't wait to see what you come up with next. That night shot with all the red lights is especially cool.

The cross bar at the back which the back of the head unit sits on is too high and you have to grind it down a little so the rear of the unit can drop down. Then you can add some shim washers at the lower end of the head unit where it screws to the dash.

Yes Im in SWIFT cc, it used to be a import club but now it has mostly dub style cars, allot 4x4s etc, very few imports. Our chapter SWIFT Phoenix has 2 jeeps and more have been coming to meetings to try to check it out.

Got my parts back from metal shop, tried the speaker covers and door props out, both i like. Now for powder coating. Going to have the door props, hood prop, speaker covers and DV8 tire carrier inserts coated in candy red.

I've never seen door props like that.
Those will go over well at the shows.

I feel like I want to see the white logo on the center subwoofer removed because it's making your metal logo a hard read.

Yeah the white crossfire speaker logo bothers me too, disrupts seeing the hog. Im thinking it may be better once the covers are powdercoated
