    replaced entire stereo system,speakers, and added subs.
    I switched out all the crap that came in the truck to start with. What a joke! I put a new Kenwood X993 deck, JL 6x9's, 6.5's, and 8" subs.. Sounds AMAZING! I'm 26, female, from nebraska and yes I did all this work myself. Here's some pics! Need any tips let me know!

    Sounds like an ad for a dating service! I bet it would work around these parts :D


    My wife thinks the stock stereo sounds great and there is NO WAY she would attempt a modification like that. Nice work on your system.

    Real nice job. How do you like those JL subs? 10's right? where did you get the boxes and amp rack? I will be doing something similar soon and want to get started ordering stuff.
