    Thanks to so many of you for the great info on this site.

    I'm planning on installing a new head unit and component speakers.

    Two questions:

    1. Any good, tested, locations for crossover mounting in/by the front doors (not planning on adding an amp)?
    2. Metra vs. Scosche install kits? Any input pro or con?
    Thanks

    I've got the Metra. No problems with it. I got it because it can be used as either single or double din. I plan on keeping my truck for a while, and may get in-dash nav in the future. Hope this helps.

    i don't have a pic with the crossover mounted but it's on the door underneath where the arm rest from the panel would be. right where the second large dynamat label is on the left.

    Looks like a good fit and finish. Any issues w/ rattles?

    Did you just drill the door metal and use bolts?

    It rattled a little when it was first installed. I brought it back to the shop that did it and its all good now.

    no rattles at all. i've been an installer almost 18 years so i know what to look for.

    also i would be careful using bolts because if they are too long you may have issues with the window arms when they are going up and down. i used 3/4" self tappers to mount mine.
