Question Kicker upgrade in WJ

so i have my cart full of audio goodies and ready to check out over on www.justforjeeps.com and i notice that with the kicker upgrade the dash tweeters are 3.5" while the ones in my 99 WJ are 2.5".

my question is can i make the larger tweeters fit?

Im pretty sure Ryan aka 99limited did the kicker upgrade. The only thing is that tweeters will not fit unless you custom mount them. Im pretty sure he sold or is selling his tweeters.

It would take some alteration in the mounting area, to what extent I am not sure. But the metal mounts on the WJ would have to be cut away, and the heater duct would probably have to be softened and reshaped.

Here is the mounting area for the WJ:

and the size of the Kicker tweeters:

Re: Kicker upgrade in WJ

got the new units on monday. the 6x9's and the 6.5's plugged right in no problems. took out the old tweeters and used a dremmel to make room for the new, bigger, 3.5" tweeters. the plugs didn't match so i had to sodder the plug off the old tweeters on to the new ones. kept the factory amp for now and they sound great. thanks for all the feed back

Re: Kicker upgrade in WJ
