re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

It looks like it may have a transparent piece(?) to keep dirt/water out hopefully since I leave the rear windows out nearly year round. There should be little to no sound issue since its a sub woofer and the base passes through most material but it doesn't look flush with the floor. So, back to my custom idea, a water proof, carpeted piece that's thick enough to have a relief where the sub goes and then makes the trunk perfectly flat.

All said, I prefer it in the floor than in the way of gear in the back.

Now if only my jeep had the right gears (confirmed it was a dealer error related to the system glitch) I could be excited again! At least the sales manager that ordered it remembered that it would not let him add it and believed as I did that 4:10's were coming. No battle there which is good...

Just seems interesting (silly) to put a open vent on top of a speaker in the middle of the 'trunk' on a vehicle that can have the top removed.

factory cargo mat has a cut out to go around the sub.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Another thought on the sub could be a "vent mesh". What I mean by that is a one-way sort of "gortex" material that allows air flow from one side - but no dirt/debris/moisture from the other.

Most headlights have these vents on the back to allow for "breathing" so a greenhouse effect doesn't happen.

It would make sense to have what looks like a metal protective "basket" (from Pat's pics) and that mesh underneath it to keep debris out.

Thoughts ?

Good to hear that they are looking to solve the gears, any idea how they are going to fix it?

I wonder if a 'WeatherTech' or similar cover would work on it... As long as something was on the tray it shouldn't 'vibrate' too much.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I ordered a white Rubi HR soft top yesterday as a birthday present to myself and am so excited I'll probably burst into flames before it arrives. Even though I've owned 5 Jeeps over the years (GCs and a Laredo), never a Wrangler...always wanted one but I'm in real estate and it wouldn't fit my customer base. But now I've saved enough to not have to trade in my other car and get what I want this time! This forum has been and will prob continue to be a huge help to me. Thanks!

Is that the carpet that is in your pictures or another mat?

Make sure you have the 4.11's on the order in writing and refuse delivery if you don't get them...problem solved.
