    Hello,

    I like the job you did with the subs. Wondering how they are holding up for you since some time has passed. Are they still awesome? Any install issues now that some time has passed?

    Also, Did you have the boxes made or could you order them from somewhere? What did you do with the jack?

    I too, have a double cab and your thread was the only one I could find on installing bass in the 1st gen double cab. Any insight warmly received and good on ya.

    The subs are still holding up perfectly since the day i had them installed. The box was custom made and I actually bought it used from another TW member. My jack and all the other tools are inconveniently being stored under my passenger seat but I plan on mounting a tool box in the bed to store everything in.
