First I removed all four door panels for installation of door speakers...then removed the back seat and installed the amps on the back wall...the wiring was a little difficult because of limited paths that we could run them...so after removing the dash to install the head unit, we ran all the wiring from the back of the head unit down up under the carpet to the back of the vehicle...I installed a mount on the front of the dash to hold my Ipod securely...the thing I love the most about my truck is everything still has its stock look except for the head unit and Ipod mount...this was such a fun task and it took us about 7 hours to do everything.Thanks Crutchfield for your great products and support!
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
Factory systems these days limit you to how you can listen to your music...music just sounds much better with aftermarket add ons...
What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
Stock look, aftermarket sound
Why did you choose these products?
I've had experience with everything but Boston Acoustics and wanted to try something different and was very pleased with Boston Acoustics
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
I plan on adding an aux cable that will allow me to run my Ipod and XM satellite radio simultaneously
