has anyone else had this problem?
 
so i went to put in my new 6.5 on the WJ today and when i went to screw the new ones in, the speaker fit but i couldnt screw the speaker in because on the factory speaker they have like a square extender to reach the actual screw holes. anyone else have this problem? what did you do??:confused:

Yeah, you can drill right into the door. I would use some sort of baffle or at the very least gasket tape, otherwise you'll encounter some rattle.

The wires are think because that's what connected to teh factory wiring. You'll have to snip those off and add butt connectors.

Get a drill or get a friend who has a drill.

Every man above the age of 12 should have their own drill (except for Joe/Elvis/Robert).
