    I installed a Rockville USS8 8" 600w. Ya, I thought I would be in the same situation but it fits real snug under the driver seat. I ended up moving it further away from the seat because it sounded a bit muffled. As of now it sits halfway under with the speaker uncovered. Still really happy with it though :)

    Sweet!! I’ll check it out. For now mine sits behind passenger seat on the floor. I plan on doing a rear seat elimination and building a platform. I hope it doesn’t muffle the sound. I have a long way to go. Still have to soundproof the interior and upgrade speakers. I might just go with an under seat amp to boost aftermarket replacements. A decent amp will produce good bass from a decent pair of 6x9’s.

    Not sure exactly how your behind the seat storage compares to my double cab, but I recently installed a Rockford Fosgate P300-8P and am quite happy with it. It fits in the rear storage cubby really well and I even had space to fit the amp and line converter I used.

    Sweet!! My access cab doesn’t have the cubby behind the seat. There’s a bolt-on woofer option that mounts to the seat belts and a jbl woofer that eliminates my center console. I’ll post pics of mine if I remember but it’s just a woofer sitting on my floor for now. :/

    Thanks. I have a new R/F fender that I have to get painted first, the original fender has a big dent in it.

    Putting a little pressure on the rack to move them over the bolt holes, but everything was pretty smooth. You can hear some wind but only when the crossbars are being used. I bought aftermarket ones from Amazon but the bolt holes were too far off and the front bracket needed adjustment so I didn't use them. They are in my shed now.

    Awesome, with how the boots looked I assumed they were the extended version. Looks good though :thumbsup:

    Shoot, in my old competition car I’d have to turn down the music in the rain otherwise the windshield wipers would bounce off the glass. I’m glad I went with the MMATS pro series instead of Juggernauts.

    I went with a JL Audio sub for my RC. It’s the PowerWedge+ 10” self powered model, and I added the optional remote volume control. I could not be happier with the output given the compact size, and the built in amp made installation a breeze. The width of the box fit perfectly between existing threaded holes in the cross cab reinforcement, making it easy to bolt it it right in. I installed the volume control in one of the stock blanks below the HVAC controls, making for easy adjustments.
