    my birthday is next thursday (6/23) and my step dad asked me what i wanted for my birthday and i said i want some speakers for my truck. I didnt really expect him to go along with it but he said ok and we are supposed to be going looking around town tomorrow to see what we can find! Im excited but im not going to get my hopes up too high. What kind of speakers do you guys have? any suggestions on what i should look for? jlaudio mtx kicker pioneer etc?.. 8" 10" 12"? also.. my truck is an 02 xtra cab so would space be any kind of an issue?

    use the money on sliders, bumper, wheels, etc....

    That's just my .02 worth. Besides that, I've never gone wrong with JL Audio, MTX, and Kicker.

    I have stock speakers and an aftermarket headunit and it makes my stock set-up sound great! You could always look into that, but I'm sure you're looking for more bass that quality. Try Rockford Fosqate and look through Crutchfield.com for some set-ups you may like.
