    We always seem to get hounded for photos here so here are mine....

    I installed 2 JL10's an amp, mini mag[(mod)lol], seat mounted mag, kc 6" slimlites, smittybily bullbar, all in my 08 access cab

    I worry about my method of mounting my amp, prolly WAYYY to much, cause I went through my floor with self tapping screws, but I tend to worry wayyyy too much as in my mind when I work on things I picture them lasting forever.... but i put red silicone over the three mounting screws, and like 5 layers of gray rustoleum,lol.... my self tapping screw started drilling a hole into my wire harness but i caught it just in time i think, but it didnt seem that it cut any wires so i just red siliconed that up too....

    LIGHTS:
    Wired on their own seperate switch, pretty srait forward from the instructions, used a stock threaded hole by my battery to mount the relay
    TO MOUNT those lights on my bumper though i did drill another hole about half an inch forward and to the sides to ensure a good fit and a visible front plate

    SUBS:had most of the stuff already, i just had to build a sub box and get a wiring kit from wally world.... i used MDF board ($27 for a 4x8 from lowes) and also got some outdoor carpet ($20 for i think a 4x18 or sumthin from lowes).... based my box off of this thread http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/audio-video/7543-perfect-setup-2-tens-down-firing-pics.html
    my mistake was i made mine taller to fit my deeper mounted subs so i couldnt rotate it in there to fit, but with some additional cutting i made it work, for my supports to elevate the box I used the rear deck wheels off a cub cadet 72inch deck (lol)...(cut to fit) and just gave them a brushed finish with a wire wheel...... the amp was mounted under my passenger seat and i rotated my seats support bar to allow for clearance

    Big Mag Mod: oh just do a search

    Mini mag: got it for christmas and i also had some soft ties (tie down like accessory) that i never use, so i ran it through the belt pouch and put each enclosed end of the tie through the headrest bars on my passenger seat (I really like it and it stays stuck to the seat basically and doesnt swing around)




    End my description on this note.... with the sub box in back i think surprisingly it is more comfortable to sit in back (indian style) as long as your not a big guy.... just did an offroad adventure tonight and the bitc i mean girls in back seemed to be cool and comfortable and all, had those cute little seatbelts on and all so we were all good....

    BTW, GLADE CAR FRESHENERS FROM WALMART FOR LIKE $2 WORK WONDERS, i have had the original oil sent in there for like the past 4 months, about empty, and i will buy a refill!!!! it smells like a frekin ocean beach... next in line is spring sensations

    i will prolly end up editing my post a few times as realize i missed things


    wow, i do a crappy write up, lol
