i don't know what jeep wrangler has to do with door panel removal?

is it because it has no doors?

I like working on my own cars and do not ever pay for labor.

I dont understand posts such as - oh i bought this part for 500 and labor was 500 and at a 1000, thats a steal!!

haha suckers.

Is it long? Yes. But, it is VERY detailed.

If all you want is how to remove to door panel watch the first and last several minutes. Very clear and informative. The middle deals with replacing speakers, etc.

Tip: after cutting out the damping material from the speaker hole, stick the circle of material on the inside of the door skin.
