This is the wife's daily driver, so it came with quite a few rules. (1) All storage must remain intact without concern of damaging system components. (2) No visible wires ANYWHERE. (3) Upon resale/trade in of the truck we must be able to replace the upgraded equipment with the stock equipment in a short time frame and not effect any possible warranty work necessary. (4) "If you're doing all of this I better be able to feel it", coupled with "just eights?"
ATTN rules 1,2,3. (Oh, and no "bajillion" dollar alternator swaps.)
Well, it started off kinda slow with no more than running power cable, swapping front components, and attempting to map it all out. Swapping components did require door cutting that would allow re-installation of stock speakers and the fabrication of driver/door specific speaker rings.
Tweeter installation was a breeze, fitting the stock locations without need for alteration.... Can't think of anything else that worked out that way.
Then I quickly moved on to the power wire routing, where we landed the project for about six months to wait for the subs to become available again.
Initial routing to the decided fuseholder location.
Splashguard removed to route through the fender/frame area to an available passthrough to the kick panel.
