Boss = Junk.

Stick with Pioneer and you'll almost never go wrong.

Personally, I did a Clarion head unit and Memphis speakers. It's all a matter of taste really, all the leading brands will usually do you right.

You will need a wiring harness to hook the head unit up. The speakers can be wired by simply cutting the factory connectors off and splicing the wires.

Ok, they make two different adapter brackets for a TJ. One is for a 4x6 and the other is for a 5.25...the choice is yours really. You need brackets either way. I never use wiring adapters since they can potentially cause problems. I just cut the factory plug off and crimp on the correct size female connector for the speaker and go on.

I would say to check out the forum on caraudio.com they have a large amount of people selling used and new electronics. You could get a good deal on a head unit and speakers. If you want to be able to here everything when on the highway with the top down you might need some stronger speakers

I've decided to go with that head unit, and those speakers for my needs. That puts me under $200. Do you really think I'll have trouble hearing with the top down if I go that route? I was listening to my stock speakers today... and they're not bad for a 98'. I do have some trouble when it's open though.

As long as youre not on the highway too much I think you'll be fine...but even still, a sound bar really helps. Personally I wouldve put the 200 towards a soundbar, then upgraded the sound bar speakers and the head unit at the same time. But that's just me.
I have a sound bar in my 1992 Wrangler. I left the stock dash speakers in. Bought a DEH-P5200HD head unit from Pioneer and TS-D1602R 6 inch speakers from Pioneer to put in the sound bar. Between the High Def radio and the speakers, it sounds really good. Can't wait to amp it.
