YJ speaker replacement

I just bought a 92 Wrangler and both speakers in the dash are shot. My question is how do I get them out to replace? Do you have to take the whole front of the dash off to get to them. Being new it looks that way to me but thought I should ask before I start to tear things apart.

i have heard you have to lay windshield down, and take complete dash off, unless your a midget with really small hands . but im not really sure im in the process of replacing hole system in my jeep, and the videos on youtube and stuff thats what they say. but maybe someone who has done it will chime in

Technically, you need to drop the windshield and remove the entire dashboard... not exactly easy. I have done several YJ's front speakers by reaching up under the dash with a small ratchet - the speakers are held in place with 4 nuts on each. Once you get the nuts off, you will have to get a bit creative with pulling the speakers out of the dash and aligning the new ones... it isn't THAT terrible, and you don't have to be a midget with small hands: I'm 6'0" and can easily palm a regulation size basketball. I would plan on an hour or two if you've never done it before.

x2, I've never pulled the dash because you can have them put in and playing before you can get the dash off correctly. What I do is tape a 9/32 deep well socket backwards with black tape to make it sticky and take the nuts off with that....simple as pie

just did mine yesterday and it's a bit of a pain in the arse, but doable. I just have normal sized hands, and didn't pull the dash. Just get creative with body/ arm position.
