a 404? pS good luck getting your amp wired with your stock headunit, and your speakers require a adapter, http://www.crutchfield.com/p_1207100...Harnesses.html should fit your jeep. (if you have a circuit city, they might have them cheaper).

Just run all new wiring. I got a jeep WJ and I'm doing the same thing. The stock wiring is ok, but the amp is giving 180 watts Peak at most, so those wires can't really handle a half decent aftermarket setup.


Btw, you're WK have the 5.2 or the 5.9? ... I love those 5.9's

a after market amp on factory wiring is always a bad idea unless the intention is to start a fire you could tap in to the rear speakers with a converter with out removing the dash custom wire a amp and just wire the remote to a 12v accessory the down side is it would be on anytime the key is on even if the radio was off but trust me you could do much worse.

LOC is probably the best bet.

A line out converter will let you keep your stock speaker wires and headunit, and simply take the signal and send it to your amp in the form of RCA's. I've used it for subs and it works fine, no clue how it'll work with full range speakers though. A quality headunit will almost always be better than a LOC though. Pioneer has some really good budget priced head units, such as the p5000UB, or the p6000UB (more expensive).

I would recommend an LOC only if you never plan on getting a new head unit. A decent quality loc will cost more than a very nice brand new cd deck usually, so you are better off just putting $150 or so down on a good new deck. As others have stated, if you plan on using an aftermarket amplifier to send signal to your 4 door speakers and the power output exceeds too much more than 75watts per channel, I would strongly recommend running new wires....not so much because it would cause a fire, but because the stock wires are so small, the resistance introduced would drastically decrease the power that is able to run through the wire all the way to your speakers.
