    I’m in the same boat. My SEMA Pro wheels arrived yesterday, but still keeping my eyes on those Ray 10s haha. Just so hard to find those in black. I will say these SEMA wheels look great on our trucks though and are a perfect fit.

    I would not recommend that; the loss in volume would almost certainly be unacceptable.

    This reply applies to my experience with the Toyota/JBL audio system in my 2018 Tacoma Limited.

    Like most everyone else, I found the JBL system underwhelming, very underwhelming even though the dealer used it as a selling point, that "this Tacoma comes with the top-of-the-line $2300 JBL audio system." Riiight …

    The first thing I did was to replace the stock JBL speakers with PowerBass speakers at the recommendation of Crutchfield in order to be compatible with the JBL 2 ohm system. I found it incredulous that JBL would put their name on those crappy stock speakers. The PowerBass speakers were a definite improvement but not what I was expecting, so sent them back and instead ordered JBL Stadium GTO960C speakers for the front, and JBL Stadium GTO620 speakers for the rear. Even though the Stadium speakers are rated at 2.5 ohms, the small reduction in volume was worthwhile; they sound great, and better than the PowerBass speakers.

    I didn't find out until I tore into the fronts that the signal delivered to the front doors is filtered, so connecting the stock front wires to the crossovers that came with the Stadium speakers didn't provide a usable signal to the tweeters; it also short-circuited my plans to leverage the 3-way capability of the crossovers that came with the Stadium speakers to connect the JBL GTO20M mid-range speakers. Instead, and because I did not want to replace the stock tweeters as they seemed decent, I ran a new set of wires from the stock tweeters in the dash down and out to the doors where I connected the Stadium tweeters in parallel, and surface mounted them to the front doors; they fit perfectly and are unobtrusive. However, after further research, I'm a little concerned with the reduction in impedance on the stock amp tweeter channel as a result of having wired the new tweeters in parallel … No issues yet, a week later, after running the system at max volume a good amount of the time but, still a little concerned.

    Yesterday, I replaced the stock JBL subwoofer with a Rockford Fosgate Punch P3SD2-8 subwoofer, connecting it directly to the stock JBL amp. That was a huge improvement over the stock JBL sub, even without inserting a mono amp in-between. I have a Kicker PXA200.1 amp on order that can deliver 100 watts @ 1 ohm, and the Rockford sub can be wired for 1 ohm, so there's plenty of room for further improvemnt, if needed. However, I'm going to live with the system as is for a week or two to see whether I really need/want to install the Kicker amp.

    Overall, the quality of sound with the work done thus far has been a tremendous improvement. I think I could easily live with what I now have for the next several years that I'll own the truck.

    I'm sure they will look great on. However, you know I'm a bit partial to the SCS brand.

    I know. But, I hate to not even mount up what I have. I may just stick with my original decision and stay with my Pros.

    Took me all day. I made a set of splash guards for the front wheel wells. Used a set I had for my 06 Tacoma (body lift). Its hard to see but I ran it under the plastic in front and it covers the rear gap in front of the body mount. I'm guessing the wheel well is 95% covered now. LOTS of cutting and trimming. 20180831_125303.jpg The old ones were garbage!
