I ended up calling jeep dealership and asked if they had any info and sure enough they where able to tell me.

I believe the rear right was a grey/orange wire and grey/dark blue and i can't remeber what the rear left was but I got it all working!

I traded in this jeep and got a 2016 with more options. I took out this system and installed it yesterday in my new one. As I was wiring it in, I noticed the passenger rear seat had a little room under it and I managed to get my 9x9x1.5" amp under it without taking the seat out. It was very tight, but seat still slides. Now all I have to do is put a quick disconnect on the speaker and I'll be able to very quickly remove the box if need be.Click image for larger version

Are the rear speakers a full range signal, then??

The RCA output is full range, but the amp has a built in crossover for lows only. If you had an amp for full range you could put some 6x9s or something.

I was just curious if the rear speakers are a "full frequency" signal. I have a friend with a 2015 Ram and an 8.4AN and the rear speakers are not a full frequency signal, so he had to tap the front speakers to his LC2i...I appreciate the response, just not sure I follow...

I don’t need a full range amp since I'm only adding a sub. But I want a full range signal since I will be using the filtering and lower frequency of the sub amp to filter out the high signals. I just want a full range so I'm not missing anything range wise.

I don't have the equipment to test actual frequencies, but I do think I am getting at least full lower frequencies. When I was tuning my amp I started with only the lowest setting i think around 20 Hertz? And it was still hitting. Since it's a 10 I have it catching somewhere around and between 20 and 110 hertz.

As far as I could I know a deck usually will put out a full frequency and low frequency for a sub. If your friend has the premium sound, and tapped into a line after it passed through an amp or on the line to his sub, then there is no telling what sound range he will get. The premium system apparently has a couple amps and another thread covers it well. I think tapping in right behind the deck has given me the full frequency.

Thank you for the feedback, @gduck24. It sounds like you got a full signal. My friend doesn't have the premium sound package, but he did tap into the OEM sub connector wire for his signal into his LOC. I'm thinking the wiring harness should be the same on our Cherokee's, regardless if you have premium sound, so I may try to tap our sub connector (if it is there) on the passenger side in the cargo area (pic below for reference):

I can't confirm if they are or not.
