Due to the complex nature of the overall install, I enlisted the help of Extreme Concepts in Boaz, Alabama. The dash has been reconstructed, as well as the headliner, pillars and back panels. The pillars now are molded to the headliner, which is molded to the back panels, which is molded to the speaker enclosure. The whole install took about a week for them to build, a week to get painted, and three days to put in the equipment.
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
For competing in car shows.
What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
The dash is what people see first, but I feel the whole install is cool.
Why did you choose these products?
Sponsorship with MTX, and the products are good.
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Transporting the truck back and forth to the two shops.
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
No future plans at the moment.
Sitting in the driveway ready to roll.
The dash housing the T.V. and the CD player make for easy adjustments and viewing.
The custom box built by Extreme Concepts. Notice it's molded to the side which is molded to the roof.
Custom door enclosures house speakers and crossovers.
The truck rolls on 19's front and back. The interior also has RECARO racing seats which make driving it very comfortable.
