Your opinion on people who put high $ sound systems in Jeep Wranglers?

I’ve gotten some heat from hardcore Jeepers for putting a good sound system in my Wrangler and I’m just wondering why that is. I am the kind of person who really likes my music and I do a lot of highway driving which gets really noisy with a soft top or if the top is completely down. That’s why I decided to put a high quality marine rated sound system in the vehicle. It’s all Polk Audio, 5 1/4" components in the dash, 6 3/4" components in the sound bar and 2 8" subs in the back. Run by 2 Polk Audio amps.. the retail value of the whole affair is near ,000 (but thanks to ebay I paid maybe half that..) It sounds incredible and can easily over power wind noise on the highway.. and let’s face it.. driving into the sunset with the top down and doors off with some Tom Petty at max volume is just pretty cool anyways!

I guess maybe some "manly beer guzzling 4×4 enthusiasts" just look at me as a little 20 year old punk? I don’t know.. I mean it’s not like that’s all I’ve done to the Jeep.. it’s got about a grand in off road accessories already and today I just dropped another ,400 on a 4" lift and new wheels and 33×10.5" tires.. it’s definitely an off road Jeep too not just a daily commuter.. it’s seen more than a few days where cleaning the mud off is a 4 hour job.

So what’s your opinion? Should Wranglers be strictly off road or can they be rolling boom boxes so you can have fun on the drive to the trail too?

    i think 2grand in your sound system in a jeep wrangler, if its got a soft top, then someone with a box cutter and screw driver, and they’ve just gotten themselves a nice set up for their own ride.

    I Think they are ment for offroading. What is the point of owning one if you dont take it offroading?
