    Just put in a 12” 30 minutes ago. With this box it does not necessarily need to be a slim, but they specify the mounting depth and sealed box volume requirements for the sub you want. 4A861BF3-B88D-42CB-B21C-BEF0F1A5F488.jpg

    Yes. I have. I built the sealed sub box my self as I had some MDF laying around. It's a Rockford P3S Shallow mount and a Rockford R500X1D amp. Also used the add an amp harness for the stock head unit so no splicing involved.

    Add An Amp Amplifier Adapter... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CQUL240?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

    Rockford Fosgate R500X1D Prime... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BF6HYDE?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

    Bought the sub off a crack head (brand new in box and was Factory sealed) so no link for that sorry.

    Ok cool. Thanks. Next question. Who has got some box measurements so I don’t have to guess with trial and error.

    Huge shoutout and thank you to @Shmellmopwho who fabbed and installed my sliders. Super happy with how they came out.
    I selected to have them angled 10 degrees and requested 1” longer on the legs.

    While I'd love to help you with this one, I really don't wanna remove my box as I have it just right with foam on the bottom so it doesn't rattle lol.

    But it is fairly simple. Just take the plastic parts out and you can work on a box while still using your back seat. That's what I did. Took me a few days to get measurements and mock up a box.

    Put a mixup of extruded aluminum and Sherpa parts together to create a semi budget friendly crossbar setup for the topper:

    Then Amazon specials (M6 eye bolts and elastic netting) to create a roof nest inside the topper:

    Finished putting the Noico 80mil on the back wall yesterday. I envy you guys that do the slick installs of that stuff, mine looks like last place at the county fair quilt contest!
    Tested it out today on a drive up to the mountains. Makes a nice difference. Downshifts and road noise aren’t nearly as loud.
    We took our new girl to help us say goodbye to our old guy. Took him to some of the favorite spots we had visited.
    And then there was the truck in the middle of the road… front wheels going 2 different directions. Not sure what they did to break the UCA joint, the direction they were coming from was the easy side!

    It may just be the pictures are a bit unclear. But it looks like you have it set wrong? The left side looks to be on the first eyelet hole and the right side is set in the middle. Which would equate to two different stiffness types? Again, I could be seeing it wrong. Just looking out.

    I installed the 2wd low mod this weekend. - I also routed the related switch to my overhead panel which had no spare slots. (Fortunately, I had installed the custom 3 switch overhead switch panel previously for that purpose.)

    I did that - plus the puddle pods’ installation, the dash tweeters, door speakers and installed a custom driver side switch panel to accommodate some more switches

    - all in one sitting.
    :bananadance: :cheers: :broccoli: :dancingbacon: :jellydance: :kona: :burnrubber:

    well, I actually finished this morning!

    It took a while…

    My fingers and hands are sore from pressing all those harness clip tabs and dealing with all those wires.
    :sadviolin:

    The whole process was not bad - just a lot to do at once.

    The toughest part was the organizing of all the stuff going into / living inside the driver’s side A pillar. I had a lot of wiring in there already and there are some large harness fittings that needed to live there (for the puddle pods).

    I had my fingers crossed so that stuff would actually work once the power went back on.

    trouble shooting would have been a b*tch… this is why it is best to do one thing at a time…

    I’m happy to report that everything seems to be working properly- what are the odds!

    It's a full kit. Comes with every hardware you need to complete the job. I mentioned the brand, these are from Hellwig.
