Ok, first things first. Get out your Sunday Koozie even though it's Monday.
The victim. 8 inch Bazooka tube Model # BTA850FH
Get out the tools required for the task at hand. Drill, 7mm Socket, T Wrench Thing., Couple of Self Taping screws for the ground wire, Sand Paper or Block, Philips Head Bit for the Screws, Pliers because I can't find the right size socket to take the battery terminals off. and I think that's it.
First. Remove the battery cables. Neg first, then positive. I guess you don't have to take the positive off, but me and electricity do not get along very well, so I just kill it.
Next, get ready to take the dash off. There are 6, 7mm screws that need to be removed. Take the section below the steering wheel off, slight tug is all you need. There are 4, 7mm screws there. Take them off.
Now, remove little cubby thing on top of the dash. There is a 7mm screw there.
Then remove the little cubby thing where the power windows would be if you had them. If you are reading thins and have them, good luck with that. I don't so it is a lot easier for me, I am sure.
Now get ready to pull the radio out. 4, 7mm screws and a good solid tug and that bitch comes right out. Disconnect the factory harness, sat radio antenna, and regular antenna. Put the radio some place you will not lose it. It's a pretty important piece of the puzzle.
Now this Bazooka tube came with a real cool harness. It's like little screw things. Really simple to install. It goes right into the factory wiring using the front left and right speakers, fused power source, and I used the cig lighter for the switch power source. But first, the wiring needs for a 2011 JK.
Yellow with red stripe = Power (BTW, WTF happened to just plain old red. Why does everything have to be pastel gay colors.
Left Front = Pos- Grey with Violet Stripe, Neg- Grey with Yellow Stripe. Violet???? Really? Positively Gay would have been a better color
Right Front = Pos- Green and Violet Stripe, Neg- Green with Yellow Stripe. The right side is gay too.
Now wait for this one! Cig lighter is Purple with a Pink Stripe. No Comment!
Ok, so find you wires and hook up the harness supplied by bazooka. I have a hard time explaining how this thing hooks up. It is like little screw connectors. It is so simple, you could have like 4 or 5 beers and have no problem with it. Ask me how I know?
