    I have a 12" Kicker, Solo-Baric L3 in a Kicker box just sitting on my rear seats. It slams and I wouldnt want anything that hits harder.

    But a buddy of mine has an 03 double cab and he took his truck to a audio shop and they took the carpet type cover out from behind his rear seats and made a custom box that fit 2 JL shallow mount 10s. Im going to look into doing what he did.

    Dual Polk Audio MM840's in a .7 ft^3 box from SuperCrewSound. Soon to be replaced with either a 10" Type-R thin in a ported enclosure or a sealed 12" behind the rear seat.

    Could you send me a picture of that. I just wanna see how that looks. I have two 8's and I'm getting kind of sick of them cause they don't hit that hard.

    Edit, Mine is in a 2nd gen double cab but I'm sure there is space for it in the first. The sub is only 3.5 inches in depth.
