    No pics YET..

    but,

    We replaced the rear removeable "bed door" with a ported enclosure with 3 JL 15w3's..The interior speakers are MB Q's, both amps are ARC signature 2300's:drool:

    Im not a fan of the titanium tweeter, but jesus god theres so much bass..You can feel your damn teeth rattle:o ..Its also extremely responsive, very very impressive for 15"s.

    i SHOULD have pics on tues~~

    hey, just a note, don't know how many of those trucks you've done yet, but we were having problems with bed leaks and water getting into cab after taking those doors out. we ended up putting the doors back in and cutting holes into it. varied from cutting a smaller window in the center to cutting out all but a "post" in the middle and large windows on each side to keep some support. and yes, those trucks are loud as shit. we did 2 solo 12's or 2 solo 15's. you couldn't breathe in there. oh also had one truck that had 4 Vega 12's......OMG!

    edit: the amps we used were kicker 1200.1 or RF 1000BD usually one per sub

    i've seen too many puddles in the beds, so i'd never take the door off... we usually just put the box in back, and amps under the backseat... or do an underseat box, and mount the amps to the wall(if they are broke dicks).

    if it's the 3 piece removable, then it can leak. good deal about the seal and silicone though. the best idea i saw was porting the wall, and the box was covered in bedliner material....keeps the MDF from getting wet. :bigthumb:

    another cool thing about the bedliner stuff, is the guy we deal with can color match the exterior... if the customer wants.
