    08 4x4 Dbl cab shorty O.R. pkg
    DTRL, Debadged, Donkey tethered in the bed that rips 142 db farts so I can piss off the neighbors and rattle the windows on my house when I'm parked in front.
    And I'm expecting more.
    My Stereo build is building and I'm gonna do my first install ever and hopefully not fuck anything up.
    In the garage:
    Scosche single din -Black.
    Kenwood KDC X493 (simple H.U. for now)
    Alpine MRP F600 4ch.
    Alpine MRP M500 mono
    Street Wires ZN-355 RCA cables 11.5 feet x 3 sets.
    36 Sq ft. Second Skin Damplifier Pro
    Pac Swi steering wheel control adapter
    Shipping now:
    Alpine SPX 17-PRO components
    Alpine SPR 17-C coaxials
    Rockford Fosgate AWG 4G. Dual Amp Kit
    In process
    Mr. Marv built Sub/amp deck enclosure with single Pioneer TS-SW2541D 10" Shallow mount.
    Need to get:
    Perforated aluminum sheeting for holes in doors.
    Dynamat for the floor.
    16G speaker wire.
    Second Skin Overkill or comparable closed cell sound absorber 20-30 sq ft.
    Equalizer??
    Can someone recommend a stubby antenna that works well?
    ?????Am I forgetting something??????

    I took the plastic out from behind the seats today to get a look and prepare for putting down sound deadener. SHAME on Toyota for calling the JBL system "premium". What a P.O.S!!!!
    I've seen better cones on sparkomatic speakers (circa 1982) pulled out of a Pinto from Tijuana!!! I believe I'll post a new thread that informs new Taco buyers that if a JBL system happens to be in a truck they're looking at, they should get a credit for about $900.00.
    For me, the JBL and towing pkg. happend to be on the last white 2008 4x4 with O.R. TRD on the island. I regret the JBL and hope the "heavy duty" alternator with the tow pkg. performs better than their "premium" sound system.

    RSVP Re: if I am missing something or knows of a good antenna.

    Thanks for the encouragement, guys. When I get this done, I'll have my digicam handy and my laptop will be in the garage with me with the forum open in case of questions. I think the last piece will be Marv's subwoofer. Most everything else is here or on the way.
