    ive decided just to put in a flowmaster 40 series and chop my stock pipe off over the rear axle instead, now that we've got some cooler weather down here in mississippi i plan to do some more work such as doing a better job at hiding the wires to my subs and adding lights that will flash when the subs hit, i will probably gather all this up this weekend and get it done

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    One of my buddy has some of that shit..it's cool and subtle. He has it switched so he can turn it on and off though..lights go faster..louder volume is up and harder bass hits. It's through an output obviously.


    Truck looks good! Love good ol' country/homegrown work..:D

    Firestiks look better for sure, however, the steel whip has much better reception and range especially through the mississippi woods

    imo i'd stick with the 4ft or even go with a 3ft if you're attaching it to your hood, assuming you'll be driving at highway speeds and the spring is a need too

    i have a spring already and i may not put it on the hood, i might just move my toolbox up a little and mount it back there on the driver side, but a firestick is definately in my future, i cant haul kayaks without my whip havin to be tied down

    Ran into a couple problems this week, first thing i found was that my leaf springs look like a n over my axle instead of a u, then tonight my battery that i just bought about 4 months ago is acting like it doesnt wanna carry the stuff i have on there, so my next plans were gonna be window tint then winch but now their more than likely gonna be either all pro expedition leafs or a custom leaf project then a dual battery additon
