Installation Description

I hated putting in the receiver. You have to take the whole dash out to get that thing in there. The door speakers weren't as bad but still rather troublesome since they were a little bit bigger than they were supposed to be. The sub and amp were pretty easy, although I lost a piece of my truck after putting in the power cable for my amp.

The sub. Thats usually what they wanna see!
