    I am finally adding my hi-po stereo from my old turbo rice burner. Does anyone out there have good examples of previous stereo installations so I can get some ideas.

    Thanks

    I got your link to work. Thanks. I like the way you have it done. My interior is quite different. My soft side panels have been removed and I have a multi amp setup. I also see your sub - that is the same place I was going to put mine but it takes up cargo area. I thought of suspending it from the hardtop with steel brackets. I have not made a final decision on this. I will probably just install the sub over one of the wheel wells - I plan to install a rear bumper spare tire carrier - that will open up the interior. I am trying to get the inside of my truck photographed - I just got a digital camera. I will highlight the changes I have been making. Thanks for the ideas and the pics

    Go to the audio section and look around. This topic has been addresses there before. Several members have integrated teh sub into new side panels, there are links and how-to's in the audio section.

    I don't want to sound rude, but some members will not respond to post like these concerning a topic that is brought up on fairly common basis.

    Good lord. The rod up that man's butt must have a rod up it's butt.

    I don't have any good pictures to send you of my install... I got your email but it won't let me reply for some reason? But if you wanna know about set ups ask DBlazer he is like the stereo guy on here to ask...

    I could e-mail you a pic or two, but let me explain what I did. As did several other members here, I made new side panels out of .75 MDF and carpeted them to match the interior. I mounted a 10" sub between the tailgate and the wheelwell on the drivers side, it is flush in the panel, 6x9's in front of the wheelwells close to where the stock ashtrays were. I am using two amps which are mounted behind the side panels, one on each side in the area behind the seats.

    Some will say that the amps will get too hot. I live in Texas and the temprature has already been into the 100's and I have had no problems. With the amps mounted behind the side panels, they are very secure and out of sight. The head unit is mounted in the stock location and you have to look close to see that it is not stock. The Audio section of this site is very good and is visited by several guys who really know what they are talking about. My equipment was purchased from DBLAZER. Anything he tells you, you can bank on.
