Also, what air filter should I replace the stock one with? I've heard bad things about K&N letting in dust to the combustion chamber, but I've also heard it does the most for HP and TQ. My jeep has definitely been lacking some power on the road, and I don't do anything offroad, so should I go with the K&N?

I'm also considering replacing the stock shocks with Bilstein HD's. Whenever I go over something, the back shocks don't seem to do their job of absorbing the shock very well. I figure if i'm going to replace the back ones I might as well replace the front ones too.

I have never experienced dust in a combustion chamber with a K&N filter...in any vehicle.

A lot of people use the K&N or Airraid.

I would...or another high quality filter like an AirRaid ...if you are going to a cold air intake that's a who new kettle of fish but still either of those are excellent choices.

Since it's a Laredo there probably never was an amp there(stock at least)because only the upgrade Infinity system used it. Easiest thing to do in that case is run RCA's to an amp and then new speaker wire from there to the doors.

Re: 2002 Jeep GC Laredo Sound System-where to start?

I've been running K&N in my Jeeps for years...never had a problem. I've had the oil tested at a lab...never any readings that would suggest a problem either. I ran the FIPK in my 4.0L Wrangler, and my 4.0L XJ, and now on my 4.7L WJ. I'd suggest them to anyone.

Bilstien HD is the way to go. I've got them on all 4 corners as do quite a few members on this forum. Great ride quality!
