    Thanks much to the peeps that responded to my free-pic-hosting query earlier today. I want to document everything I can think of about my Jimmy, and have started with an initial batch or 14 pictures. They can be seen at the link below if anyone wanted to check'em out. If there is a busted link, lemme know... 8)

    Cool Rig man... we need some more pics of the truck itself though. You have a blacked out grill on there? You kinda see it in one pic but it looks cool. I'm pretty sure I want to lose the two tone treatment and go all black myself. Also where do you have the 6x9's w/ no side panels and if the box is subs?

    &gt;Cool Rig man... we need some more pics of the truck itself
    &gt;though.

    Yeah, I'm going to take a bunch more today...I just threw what I had up there. I'll prolly make seperate albums, one with wider angle shots of the whole truck, one with more detailed stuff.

    &gt;You have a blacked out grill on there?

    Actually its just a square tube chrome grille. Prolly looks black because of the angle in that one picture. I have herculined the headlight bezels, so they are black instead of a really sad looking factory/faded silver.

    &gt;I'm pretty sure I want to lose the two tone treatment
    &gt;and go all black myself.

    There are two tones on my rig too...gloss black..and flat black. ;)

    &gt;Also where do you have the 6x9's w/ no side panels and
    &gt;if the box is subs?

    The pictures of the back-seat area shows how the 6x9s are mounted. I custome made side panels that are basically "half panels".....they go from the integrated roll bar part next to the front seats...to about 1/2 way over the rear wheel wells. I made them out of 1/4 thick ply, which I water-sealed like mad and then covered with some black vinyl. I cut a hole in the ply just big enough for a 6x9", and mounted the whole thing to the factory side-panel mounts with stainless hardware. They have been rained on etc and never have any problems at all. I think the 6x9s sound better attached to something more rigid as well...as opposed to the flimsy/nasty factory side panels they used to be mounted in. The cool thing is, now that I have done it before, making another set would be a snap...and its cheap too. When I upgrade my rear speakers to seperates, I'll prolly make another set. Perhaps this time I'll herculine them and back-set the speakers themselves so everything is rain proof when I have to top off. ;)

    &gt;Right on that is a killer lookin rig.

    thanks!! 8)

    &gt;BTW are ya going to the beach blast with OBH in october?

    Hard to say right now.....if my truck is running a-ok, I will most likely go. School may get in the way, we'll see.

    Anyway, thanks much for the feedback on the pics I posted, it is appreciated!
