So we all know that there is a shortage of technical diagrams and repair manuals for the JT. I thought I'd create this post so that we can share with one another the distinct similarities between the Wrangler JL and the Gladiator JT. I plan to install a "bass shaker" to my stock 8.4" premium audio system (with navigation). I will create a separate post for that but thought it would be helpful to have a post that we can refer back to as we make any and all upgrades to our rigs whether it is electrical or mechanical. For instance, if I find that the electrical wiring diagram for the JL audio system is exactly like the one in the JT, I'll say so here and will provide a link to my bass shaker install for specifics... Please share your experiences!!

The JT is very similar to the JL with most everything the same from about the B pillar forward.

It’s why I spend a lot of time on the JL Wrangler forum - it’s a pretty active place and lots you can learn from them
