That is a cool idea thumbs up

Fixed my Pop and Lock, which was locking the tailgate all on its own after I open and closed 3-4 times. Also got some Blizzaks mounted on my derped winter wheels, so I can throw them on myself when the weather warrants, rather than have to wait days at the local tire shops when the snow flies.

nothing fancy

no didn't add a lift kit, $5k stereo system, steel bumpers or a flux capacitor. just some padding on the back of the rear seats in a double cab. used some anti fatigue mat that i got from the local big box store, cut to size and applied some contact cement and presto. its great when a plan comes together. this was easier than the cabin air input screen cover or extending the A/C condensation drain hose.

Just used the exact same mat in my bed sans contact cement to replace a bed mat. Threw a piece of outdoor carpet over it to make the pups happy. My Pit ate half of a bed mat on the way to work last week...2 1/2 miles....loco puppy.

Stared at it for like 20 minutes to think of what to do to it. I'm thinking all pro front bumper and method standard wheels. Now to get the money.

The tweeter adapters actually came with the Hertz speakers. If you want to make your own adapters, buy the black cutting board (like in my pics) from WalMart and trace your old tweeters onto it. The stuff is easy to cut with a jigsaw and if you don't have a circle cutting jig or a router, use a cheap hole saw. The stuff cuts easy and won't ever rot.

I made some for my cars in the past and its pretty easy.

www.tacotunes.com sells kits as well

I just looked at the pictures again and realized what you were talking about, so my answer is incorrect on that one, but you could still use abs or mdf etc to make one, the one in the pic is pretty nifty looking and appears to be super simple.. maybe it came with the tweets?
You are correct. They did come with those particular Hertz speakers, which a nice and welcome surprise. Not that making them would have been hard, but it saved me lots of time. For the record, I'm pretty sure that I have the HV-165XL speakers in the fronts, though I'd have to double check.

Nice mod man, I may have to steal that idea. When I load up my tools with the back seats down they scratch the hell out of the back of the seats. That would keep my tools from moving around.

Thanks, I actually just used spray paint made for plastic, 4 coats (forget who makes it, sorry), used satin black because I wanted some shine to it to match the radio.
