    I was very pleased with the install. Sorry no pics of the speakers since you couldnt tell a difference. Starting off with the headunit. I love it and is awesome and love the phantom face. Tons of feature that I havent even started to fiddle with. Speakers.....sound great even with out an amp(later on down the line). Amp...works great and give plenty of power. I only run about half way through the bass knob and thats more then enough bass to get things shacking. Barely gets hot even after two hours of use Subs....Incredible little to no distortion at high volumes and full power. Look great and hit incredible hard.

    I dynomated only the doors and regret not doing the rear hatch area. When outside the car this is the only place you can hear/see/feel the vibrations. I probally will dynomat the rear area in the future to deal with this. Also it seems that my rear fender flares are lose so you get a real annoying raddle only heard outside of the car so I will be changing out the nuts and bolt for a better fit. The bass knob Im still undecided. Originaly I wanted it under the dash next to the center console, but as much as I seem to use it changing bass from song to song I needed it closer. I was thinking about putting it in the ash tray but the cord is about two inches to short for that. What I might do is make a custom panel and put it along with 2 or 3 switch where the cassette player is now.

    Yes, but none are recent. But I will find one.

    After I get dynomat on the rear tailgate (didnt realize how bad it would raddle) I shall do the following

    Nerf Bars
    Brush Guard /w PIAA lights
    Rear Tail light Guards
    Ford Keys (1.5" lift up front to level it out)
    285/75/16 (33") Tires, not sure if I want Bridgeston Revos or some muds
    Exhaust
    Xenarcs (True HIDS)
    Clear Corners
    Escalade Cluster

    And when its cleaned

    Yes I know I was quoted twice as much at some places. I would have done it myself, but I have no electronic skills and I would probally mess up and screw everything up. Better safe then sorry.

    I got quoted 5000 for everything if I bought from my local dealer. No way I was going to pay that. I got everything installed for just under 2900 after buying alot off of ebay.
