    X2, good quality tires are more important then a sound system. system you can get later and only will cost half the price of a set of tires

    i wasted a bunch of money on speakers in my last car and i decided never again

    plus you got an extra cab dude. do you really wanna put big ass speakers back there so you have even less room?

    now if my stock speakers blow i would replace them but other that that idk

    true and im debating also on what kind of tires like an m/t or a/t in a 265/75/16
    i figured maybe the m/t since it wont be a 33

    ...too much shit to list.
    The answer is certainly going to be specific to the needs of your truck. If you're running on bald tires then yeah for sure replace the tires. If you still have a bunch of life left in them and don't NEED new tires, that's where the decision really comes into question.

    The good thing about audio equipement is you can always find used stuff for dirt cheap
    ....tires...not so much.

    If you're planning on wheeling your truck or something , then new tires would certinaly take a priority in my book. On the other hand if you're just going for asthetics...not so important.

    What it really boils down to is weighing YOUR options and what suits YOUR needs the most. It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. If you've got good tires and really like music, get the speakers. If your tires are shit and your speakers work, get new tires and keep your eye's pealed for good deals on used audio equipment.

    There are pleanty of creative ways to do minimal work over a weekend and keep all of your cab space. I have two 10's and both functional jump seats:

    Custom sounds would make me a fiberglass box using the storage under the back jump seats for 200 so that's why I was Gonna do it to keep the room back there
