    Hey Guys,
    I just got done doing my radio upgrade. I installed the Kenwood KDC-X492 deck with Kenwood KFC-6982ie 6X9 in front and KFC-1682ie 6.5's in the rear doors. I used the kit from Tacotunes and bought the baffles and deck from Crutchfield. Got the speakers new off ebay and did the whole upgrade for $411.00 It sounds good and I am impressed with the quality of the Kenwood gear, in the past I have been a Pioneer guy. The factory speakers are really poor quality however I must say that after pulling them out and looking at then I can't see how they sounded as good as they did. Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know that if you just want good sound you don't have to spend a fortune.

    Yeah hit me up when you guys want to come out to Joshua Tree, there are some good places out there and only 20 miles from my house here. Right now I am fighting with Palm Springs Toyota to do the TSB work on my springs. You would think with the wife driving an 07 4.7 4Runner and me having a 07 TRD they would be nicer. Oh well. As for the pics I will take them in the morning, the wife has family coming in tomorrow so she needed help today. as for the links they are as follows:
    Deck and baffles: www.crutchfield.com
    Speakers off of ebay: www.salectronics.com
    6X9 & 6.5 kit: http://www.tacotunes.com

    Hey guys just want to be clear on crutchfield, when you use the build it yourself tool on there site it will tell you that the 6X9's will not fit in the front. They only have the 6.5 kit. So just look at the depth and do the math and then get your speakers from another site. You will get all the wires and everything from tacotunes anyway. As for the deck, I would use crutchfield simply because your wires and dash kit are free, beyond that they really do stand behind you with awesome customer servise.
