    I have 2 sub boxes that are fiberglass on the backside and molded to the interior to make room. They are only 8's but it hits very hard for me at least.

    Chad did an extremely clean swap, drives and rides nice on the road. To be able to drive from St.Louis, MO to Moab, UT and then thru Colorado to Ouray and thru several Mountain passes and back home is amazing. This is one of my favorite rigs on this site, A++ work.

    Also it was not street queen at Moab, we pointed at some nasty side obstacles and Chad was all for them it's is one heck of a climber. I thought he was gonna roll it a couple times was crazy.

    Nomination for truck of the Month*********

    I guess following me around Moab and looking at my Rock Crusher cover gave you the bug for your own! :p:

    Looks great, that cover is serious armor and has that "Bling" factor to boot!:thumbsup:

    Bought the shackle outriggers from ruffstuff. As for placement you have to measure the leafsprings. And I did my own alignment, not much to change on a solid axle.
