    20" rims, pioneer 4200 DVD, 2- 11" screens in head rest, 2 jl 12w1s, jl 1000/1 for subs jl 300/4 for highs. Alpine 6 1/2" components in front and Alpine 3 way 6 1/2" in back. Also bunch of other stuff to come as time permits.
    Has any one figured out how to put 12" woofers in a dc yet. Not shallow mounts regular 12" like jl audio 12w1's. Maybe moving rear seats up a little to get the proper air space for a box or removing the brace on the rear wall and spacing the seat hooks out some to get more room at the top. Just wondering. Was wanting to get ideas. I have some ideas and I am getting ready to get the tools out and make something happin. Would love to see pics of other members subs and boxes of speakers sizes 10" and up. I hear people say it can't be done. Well I can tell you there is no better filling than doing something that you have been told can't be done.

    Spend the money and get the shallow mount. I got a 12" Kenwood sub with a free Sound Ordinance box for 140 (Crutchfield, only because they ship free to Hawaii). It barely fits but it sounds awesome.

    I don't see the point in stuffing in full depth drivers when you have shallow options that work just as well and fit.

    In the first gen double cab there was much less space, and you could put a cabinet behind the rear seat if you utilized the rear wall as the back of your cabinet (a poor option IMO). With the second gen double cab you get about 7" to work with so you can at least build a cabinet out of 3/4" MDF and as long as you find a driver with a mounting depth less than about 5 1/2".

    It's not like there aren't any options right?
