What I have been up too.
I havent been on in awhile, but i've been busy working on my WK. I finally lowered it on Eibachs and my stereo is up and running. I am soundproofing the entire car right now, using lots of weather proofing peel and stick membrane and cans of spray foam.

Not a bad drop, 31" from bottom of fender to ground all around. I luv it.

Carefull with using the spray foam, I used a can of it along the bottom of this rear drivers door, only to find it kept growing after I mounted the speaker and it expanded so much it went all behind the speaker and blew out a section of the surround. I was able to scrape it all away and re-glue the speaker surround down. Point is wait a day for the foam to do its thing.

My false floor I made. And temp sub enclosure for my JL 10W6-v2 until I learn to fiberglass for a stealthbox

Two JL amps, 450/4 and 500/1 to power the sound system. You will see why the sub box is turned up like that in the below pix.

To keep the sub enclosure from moving around in the cargo area screwed an eye bolt to the box then used a hook to latch onto the back of the rear seat tie down hook.

Close up view of the sub box hook attachment.

I work on her daily, I have the passenger rear door panel off right now waiting for the 3M spray glue to dry to install some peel n stick for sound proofing. My Jeep is my hobby

Oh, and it is loud as hell right now, and im still in the process of tuning the system. Im thinking of going active now, instead of passive but more research is needed.
