    How easy it to remove the door panels for speaker installation? And to remove the factory head unit? This is what my system consists of so far before installation. Kenwood KIV 700 head unit. Boston Acoustic SR95's (6x9) in the front, Boston Acoustic SR65's for the rear. Kenwood KDC C669 6 disc c.d. changer for inside the armrest. Rockford Fosgate 4 awg amp wiring kit. Streetwires ZN5 6 channel audio cables. Metra dash kit. And as far as an amp I am going to get the new Kenwood Excelon XR5-S 5 channel amp. Then I will probably go with a Tacotunes 10 inch sub enclosure.

    it is real easy to remove the panel and to open the dash up to get the stock stereo. There are some good pics and videos on tacotunes.com. Beware a lot of poeple say good and bad things about them i do not know but the pics and videos are good.

    Does anyone else make a good single sub enclosure with perfect fit behind double cab seats

    if you go with taco tunes, surveys have shown, you have a 33% chance of not being happy. go check out the official taco tunes survey thread.

    there is a thread on here that shows how to open up the doors. it's all really easy.

    on the front, you pull the black triangle at the top front of the door. pulls straight. then there are two screws that secure the door. take those out and the door pulls off, once you have pulled the door open, disconnect the speaker wires before pulling the door all the way off.

    super easy

    not sure about the back of the double cab. access cab you have to remove the bolt for the front seat belt. still easy.

    dash is easy as well.

    Sounds!
    The double cab rear doors are similar to the front. The small black triangle thing is replaced with a big black banana shaped piece at the upper rear of the door. Sorry for the dirty mind. LOL

    I purchased taco tunes install gear with no issues. For a sub, the JL stealthbox is very good. Neat and clean looking
