    It's kind of a Frankenstein setup. The in dash mount itself is the vehicle specific mount made by PanaVise.

    PanaVise's iphone/ipod mount though sucks ass. It blocks the volume and silent buttons and it's just goofy looking. So I got the Arkon mount which has 4 holes that line up perfectly to the PanaVise mount.

    Hey Jacob. You sell your truck yet? We met one time.. I bought your baja bumper off you. The buddy I was with is the owner of this truck. He didn't have it back then though.

    Dam that a beautiful truck. If I had all the money, this is what I would do to a first gen. Ive never seen subs incorperated into the back cubby holes like that. definatly saves space. How do they sound?

    The subs ended up working out great. It gives a decent bass to complement the otherwise stock speakers in the truck. It's not going to be rattling anyone's fillings out, but that wasn't my goal. My goal was to keep the jump seats fully working, and put a bump in the truck. The cab is small and the subs are not fighting through a trunk so they perform pretty damn good. The subs themselfs are crap, probably close to 10 years old now, but it get's the job done.


    Thanks!

    You should definatly do a write up on your subs or at least some more pictures. I know a lot of people are looking for subwoofer options in their extra cabs and I have never seen this, and I think it is a really good idea.

    I'm no stranger to cubby hole subwoofers :D
    I did a similar setup in my Tundra but in that I went all out and fiberglassed the enclosure and it's air tight and hits HARD (since I replaced the subs with some JL audios).
    http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forums/audio-and-stereo/159034-how-fit-two-10-subs-06-a/

    I was going to do the same thing for the Tacoma, but fiberglass is so much work. It was like 3 days of work to do the fiberglass box in my Tundra and I really wasn't that motivated to do all that all over again. So for the Tacoma though, quite honestly, I didn't come up with the idea myself. I never bothered doing a writeup cause I found everything I needed from other people's posts.

    Check out this thread on Custom Tacos:
    http://www.customtacos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=95004

    There's like 100 different kind of sub setups all for 1st gens. Some are kind of...extreme, but i just stole all my ideas from that thread.

    Below are a few pictures stolen from CT that help illustrate what I did. Sorry, but pulling all my subs out now to take pix would be too much of a PITA.

    There are 12 bolts that hold the metal bracing for the cubby holes to the interior body. Unbolt those 12 bolts and the whole thing comes out in 2 parts. I just layered the bottom side of the bracing, and the entire back side of the cab with dynamat material and then bolted it all back together again. I also cut out the bracing that held the jack and tire changing tools. Never gonna need them again anyway.

    [​IMG]

    Then filled in all the cracks and crevices with foam similar to this (again stolen pic):

    [​IMG]

    Wear gloves if you use this foam crap. I didn't and it took over a week to get this shit off my hands.

    I then just cut a couple of pieces of 1/2 MDF out to replace the cubby hole covers. Used the old cubby hole covers as stencils. Carpet it up and screw it all together with some sheetmetal screws and call it done. Oh yeah, I had to pull a couple of the plastic covers off that hide the hinges of the seat so the seat wouldn't bind when they came down.

    The amp hides nicely under the driver's seat and wires ran under the carpet.

    All completely reversable too should I ever decide to get rid of them.

    Well its supposed to be another sunny weekend in California. This is both good news and bad news. The bad news, the snow in Tahoe is still complete shit not worth the drive (should be remedied by the storms next week though). The good news, my deckplate came in today. I got a couple weekend projects in the making...deckplate airbox mod of course being the first, and the second is a MYSTERY project :eek:
    More pix to come!!! :popcorn:

    Thanks guys. I never thought my truck would get as much attention and props as it has.

    Nice man can't wait to see the mystery project. If you ever need a hand with anything requiring additional help for more than one person or anything just let me know.

    Thanks. It was mandatory...what good is a truck if you can't fit the snowboards :D

    Careful what you offer. I just might take you up on it. :rolleyes:
    After 5 years on a spacer lift and an AAL, the STOCK shocks on the Tundra are shot, and I got my eye on the Bilstein 5100 replacements....

    Thanks! But sir? C'mon, i'm only 5 years older than you.

    As I mentioned in my original post, I installed the Inchworm E-Locker Guard. This thing is pretty cool and very well built, but on an all black truck, it stands out like a sore thumb. At a quick glance it looks like I splattered a smurf on my way to work. My front and rear shocks both have some blue in it, but I've really been on the fence about rattle canning it black or not. In the meantime, I photoshopped up a sticker for shits and giggles. Nobody will probably ever notice unless I point it out, but it cost me 5 bux for two stickers so why not. :D

    [​IMG]

    While crawling underneith the truck, I noticed the corner of the locker guard was actually scraping the gas tank skid plate.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I read this was a semi-common problem with pretty much every locker guard and having the LT rear suspension probably doesn't help. Not to worry! Nothing 2 minutes with a griding wheel didn't fix. I just notched off the corner and problem solved. To my suprise, krylon has smurf blue in their linup. :rolleyes: It's not a perfect match, but it's close enough!
