    Got my pods!! All excited to install. About to pull the door and remembered that I was going to add some sound deadening mat while I had the panel off. Forgot to buy it. Oh well, guess I’ll have to wait until another day. Thanks MESO for an awesome product.

    Same here, since I'm pulling doors off might as well upgrade the speakers

    Yes. Do the speakers. Easy mod when you already have the door panels off. Will only add a few minutes of time.

    Edit: I took my speakers off anyway to run the wiring for the boots so it really is an option, but I already upgraded mine.

    Got my puddles today, install took about an hour and a half. That's with rewiring some lights I had wired to a DSIM rock light module. Decided to tear the module out rather than mess with splicing wires. IMG_20190610_213939.jpg

    Just installed my puddles and it looks great. Only criticism I have is that I wished the harness going across the dash was a few feet longer; I did not have enough harness to go under either carpet and only a few inches to spare while making my final connection, anybody else run into the same problem? @MESO how much would charge to make a 3ft harness from the T-harness to the longer harness?

    I just barely had enough to go behind the carpet. An extra foot would've been helpful.

    Edit: Forgot to add that they are awesome and fit and finish is great!

    I did a quick glance at the install instructions, I assume you undo the wire plugs behind the side kick panels to gain better access to the holes in order to go through the boots?

    Yeah and I pulled the boot off the cab and the door for ease of pulling the wire through. Definitely recommend pulling the speaker, takes 30 seconds and makes it easier.

    i found that unplugging them allows me to get the boot completely out and STRAIGHT to pass the Meso wire through much easier.

    I can't imagine not unplugging them and getting the wire through. That would be brutal.
