    Before I begin I would like to thank ItalynStylion for making the baffles.

    1st thing is to get baffles made, you can make the templates using your factory speakers.

    I then marked off a bit of the tabs to route off so I could use the screws that came off of the factory speakers. Then I proceeded to route about 1/2 of the top layer of the baffle tab

    Then I used some spray paint to seal the baffles. I had some silver laying around so I used that, along with a primer and a clearcoat, I know probably overkill but what the hell, I wont have to do it again.

    Now I am ready to install the baffle. 1st you need a barrier between the baffle and the door frame and the baffle and the speaker. I picked up some cord weatherstrip to use

    Now I line my speaker and my truck door with the weatherstrip:

    Then I attach the speaker/baffle to the truck door using the factory screws:

    All done, total time about days, waiting for paint to dry, total installation time about 1 hour.

    Hope this was as informative as it was fun.

    Thanks man. I always appreciate when someone takes the time to show how they did something. You never know when this will help someone else.

    That ItalynStylion character is pretty helpful at times, isn't he? I sent him a PM once asking a pretty simple question, and he went out of his way to help me out too.:thumbsup:
