    Dynatrac ProRock 60 Rear Axle, that is important enough.
    Crutchfield is saying that no 6x9s fit a 2014 Tacoma for some reason and that only 6-3/4" or 6-1/2" fits with the adapter plates.




    Right now, with a Alpine KTP-445U Power Pack, two pairs of Kicker 43CSC674 6-3/4" 2 Ways, a pair of Kicker 43CST20 Tweeters, and a wiring kit for the power pack... total is $320 from Crutchfield.

    I would skip two ways in the front, if u want a serious sound stage, dont get any type of coax. For the front get proper components that match the power output of the power packs.

    For the rear, u wont hear them can skip that altogether for cost savings, othereise any coax will do that match power output of the power pack.

    Zac doesnt run rears, i dont think david does either, i dont run mids or highs in my rears.

    Sooooo something like these?

    https://www.crutchfield.com/p_206CSS654/Kicker-43CSS654.html?tp=106&avf=Y

    Or actually these as they should fit even though crutchfield says they won't... even though other 6x9 speakers do?

    Any upgrade is gonna be an upgrade, its just a matter of if youre just looking for a little better, or really wanting to get good quality sound.

    If have a solid budget in mind, pick up hardware that match specs with each other and itll sound better than stock.

    If you arent used to the higher end of the spectrum, any upgrade should suffice, there will just be a lot of room left for future upgrades. If you are used to higher end, youll be wanting more than what youll get from kicker mids/highs.

    Damn, that’s pretty well thought
    out for 3am, lol. $250 otd was the selling point for me for the Kickers. The tweets cleared up a ton of the muddyness and should improve more with the speakers. I know Kicker is not top end, but once that top tier door is opened, it’s hard to downgrade, lol. I’d rec JL components for 2nd Gens who want better sound than the Kickers, I almost did them myself.

    I have three kickers in mine, but all comp r series subs, they make respectable gear, but 2 and 3 ways just dont belong in the front stage if proper components can be had for a little more.

    I agree. One of the bigger perks on why I got this setup is not having to wire/mount the tweets on the components, and not having to buy and install an amp with nicer speakers that can handle more.

    Buy component speakers if you really want to the best bang for your buck. That is all.

    6.5" speakers have come a long way and provide good bass, but 6x9s will always have more surface space and if they are decent will always have more bass.

    If you want help picking out a speaker set for your truck hit me up.

    You know I will hit you up and will prob want some help installing them when and if I do lol.

    Oh that is a great price!

    If I had a better surface on my carport I would like to have a creeper to use. I would not mind having another pair of jack stands though...

    Also picked up a digital torque wrench since I warped my rotors tightening the crap out of my lugs out of paranoia. Haha.

    And this 300 pc drive/drill set.

    I wouldn't mind having some maintenance ramps for when i start doing my own oil changes.

    Yeah man it's easy AF. Just tedious when you do it right.

    I just crawl under the truck for oil changes. There's enough room and I'm lazy so i don't bother getting the jack and stands out.

    3ton jack stands are usually not tall enough for our trucks. And most likely the floor jack isn’t either.

    A floor jack from costco and 6 ton harbor freight floor jacks would cost only a little bit more, but would actually be suitable.

    I think costco sells an aluminum/steel jack on the website, but the one in stores is all steel, for around $90 or $95. Plus has the costco lifetime return policy behind it.

    Forgot to say that a creeper is for creepers.

    I’d be weary of a jack, stands, and creeper at that price. It’s liable to crush you while you’re underneath it.
