    Nice and clean, looks good, but how does it sound? Also it is bolted down somehow? that's a lot of weight to just be sitting there, even if it is wedged between the sides of the truck.

    My head is coming off at 17 on volume
    I did pioneer speakers in all the doors with tweeters
    I have circles in the front doors and ovals in the back all different sizes to hit as many tones

    The whole thing was made one piece and its actually tied to those hooks you see in the cargo bay

    I attached little like flush eye hooks
    Idk the proper term but i mounted them after fitting so it cant be removed UNLESS you open the hatch and undrill them

    Damn man, if you got a video camera, upload a few videos. I was considering using the hooks to hold my sub box down, I never even though about using the eye hooks, you actually just gave me a really good idea for mounting mine. did you do the tweeters that are attached to the door speakers, or did you use the ones you an mount in the pillars?

    Ill see if i can borrow a cam
    I do have my iphone 4 but its still just a phone and i think a real camera would be better but never the less i will deff upload some tomorrow if the weathers nice

    And the rear speakers have built in
    The fronts have pillars
    I will upload a pic of those as well :D

    And i think like a J hook may have been better

    Like so it catches the C style better

    Like

    How did you get your head unit to look so good? I have the exact same model and faceplate and it is sunk back almost an inch. Can you post pictures of how your mounted your head unit in the dash?

    Thanks! Looks sick.

    i removed everything till it was just the blank thing like so

    [​IMG]

    then i remodeled it a little till the unit fit fairly snug i do kow what you mean by sinking back

    so then i electrical tapped around the unit so it went in very tight and sat the level mine does

    then i white rubber caulked around and re fit it i let it sit for 48 hours and it worked

    for the face type thing rectangle i crazy glued it on

    sorry for only one pic but im not about to rip it apart lol

    I really dig it. Really good job on the paint and install. It turned out nice and clean. I especially like the dash kit and mount, looks like it was made that way which is how it's suppose to look.
