See-Thru Trapdoor for Amps
 
Hey guys..the title says it all. I'm thinking about modding the trapdoor in the truck to be see through so you can see the mounted amps I have. Has anyone done this before? Would it be particularly difficult? I feel like that trap door isn't leveraged as much as it could be in the WK..

I couldn't imagine it's all that difficult if you leverage those black T shaped things and do a little cutting of plexi glass at home depot? What are your thoughts? Plus I could imagine it would be a good opportunity to add some ventilation as I have 500/1 and 300/4 JL Audio Slash Amps mounted.

Bump...any thoughts? Struggling a little bit to figure out how to mount it cleanly..weather stripping?

Alright man, I won't leave you hanging here.

Yeah, you could modify the "trapdoor" (cargo floor door). Personally, since the whole cargo floor is removable, I would just custom build the entire amp housing.

A lot of guys rip out the entire cargo floor and create custom storage for wheelin' gear, air compressors, etc. No reason you can't do the same thing. It just takes the usual assortment of hand tools/ screwdrivers, etc. Completely reversible.

Look around here and on the other jeep forums for ideas.

If I were doing it, assuming you had a router, use 3/4" MDF with 1/4" recess for 1/4" plexi. Use a good black silicone to mount it in, maybe some socket head cap screws for jeep worthy bling.

EDIT: Check this link for an example: http://www.jeepgarage.org/f187/how-to-build-a-false-cargo-floor-in-wk-4895.html
