    Update: Just upgraded my sound system with the following items:

    Pioneer Avic Z120BT Head unit
    Alpine MRP F300 4 channel amp (bridged to 2x150w)
    Infinity Reference 6x9 3 way coax speakers
    XO Vision universal backup camera with night vision
    Metra dash kit
    Boss amp install kit

    Installed myself with a friend over two days. I used a dremel and reused the stock speaker mounts. I think it worked much better than anticipated, I didn't even measure anything which I thought would lead to depth issues (contact with the window at full down). Instead, it worked perfectly.

    Overall the sound is great and much better than stock. I didn't want to go full bore and get a sub and components because I don't need it and I want to save the added weight for offroad gear. I'm very happy with how it turned out and how much capability I got for the $.

    Total budget was right at $1100. Bought the HU lightly used, everything else off of Amazon.

    Mounted the camera above my receiver hitch on the bumper drop area.

    Sliders getting welded on tomorrow! Then its time for a lift...

    Sliders are on. The Stubbs HD-SKOs took just over an hour labor to install at XXX traction in Seaside, CA. They did a great job, even hit the scabs with paint for me!

    Just ordered my OME lift from Toytec. 885s with the tsb AAL.

    So lets see, I was stock (mostly) when I posted this thread a month ago. I now have a whole new stereo system, rock sliders, and a lift enroute. Nice work TW, your powers are strong.

    Pics to follow.

    Did you get a chance to take pics of your HU yet?

    I know alot comes into play for the all around sound but I was wondering how you're liking your Infinity speakers?
