    bought from jacob_wood..shipped and good transaction, thanks.(a little better packaging would have been nice..maybe next time :eek:)

    When I got the radio it was a bit bigger then expected but finally found a convenient location that im happy with.

    ... You could have made that a lot cleaner. You can run wires with the stock ones in the door.

    I definately wouldn't have drilled monster holes into my interior like that. If I had to though I would heat shrink the wires and find some rubber boots to plug the holes with to make it look a little better.

    In the end its just one door interior to replace if you sell it, not a big deal.

    Without being in the way? All you did was mount the thing on the door and drilled 2 pretty big holes. It doesn't look good at all IMO.

    Yea it could of been cleaner but good job for doing something on your own. If I was going to cut the door, I would have tried to fit the cb in the pocket and run the wires through the stock location.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    +1 on going through the inside of the door. With the wires in the way of the weatherstrip, it won't seal. The wire will also wear itself and the paint and short out. Hope its fused.

    hmmm. I'm kinda liking the feedback..most of you guys are right and yes i do plan on filling the holes but it fits very nicely, the wires do not hit when shutting the door and yes its fused by the battery and right before the radio.. :/ let me clean this up and then repost some pics for you guys..I'm also thinking that a plate on the otherside of where it's screwed in would make it more solid if it were bolted through..time to make this look better

    kind a nice! that hole will do double duty should you spill your drink in the door pocket..it's a drain hole!!

    there is no way i would do that. a smaller unit would fit inside the door pocket.

    Sorry about the packaging that's the same exact box I got it received in, and the lady at the UPS store helped me out by making it the best we could. I'm glad everything was received on time and hope you enjoy it!
