I absolutely enjoy watching your attention to detail. How many of us would’ve thought to move the jack to under the hood with such beautiful execution? Tip of the cap, sir.

Every once in a while I'll read a build thread and think "hmm, why didn't I think of that?"

 

On this build thread it happens about once per post. :L:

Thanks -- appreciate the kudos. My first re-do of my '89 MJ (different/dormant build thread on CC) I was so excited to get it finished I missed so many details. Many "wish I did's". This Son of Stink '92 MJ build is my get it right for both itself and for my go-back-to/ next project...the '89 MJ that I will revisit, but build better this round.

The wife loves when I use the dining room table as a place of MJ assembly…so I was up early cutting/mocking the rear cab box. Again, my aim is to create an XJ/MJ era looking sub box as Jeep may have done back in the day that doesn't eat up useful back of cab space. So…2 separate 6.5” boxes are built inside the shroud.

The assembly is 5” deep and roughly 15.25” wide. About 2” of it will rest on the back of cab ledge. The final product may not be as high as this design. I need to adjust as to where the speakers will fall, height of the floor ‘hump’, center console, etc. I need to get it dialed to ‘look’ right. The overhang on the front side is so to neatly trim around the cab floor and hump as I want it not to look like an after-thought. (The gaps in photos won’t be there at final assembly…this is just cut pieces stacked together.)

Inside there is enough space for the subs to be attached to their individual boxes/enclosures and a small gap so to install the factory speaker grilles. (That piece of wood is at an angle so to show the gap inside the enclosure. It'll be vertical in final assembly.) I think I’m going to wrap this in the padded seat black vinyl upholstery so to contrast with the black carpet of the floor and back of cab wall.
