It worked out great. I was a bit of a experiment but JBL was great through out. You'll need this a mini fuse add a circuit like this
to add to the retained accessory power circuit.
You'll need to wire this http://davidnavone.com/zencart/index...gnm56vq1419h54
off that add a circuit.
It's a delay timer you'll need to prevent the MS8 from turning on right away and allowing the factory amp to turn on since there's no way of allowing the MS8 to turn on the factory amp. If you don't add a delay, the speakers will pop every time you turn on the truck. I recommend this delay turn on, because it limits the amount of amperage through it, and won't fry the sensitive MS8 turn on circuit.
Depending on what you want to do, its really a pretty awesome piece. Mine is under the passenger side seat. DO NOT SCREW THE MS8 INTO THE CARPET,, use velcro. The can bus system runs under the seat, and if you screw into, you'll regret it.
Buy a 10 gauge amp kit, run the power from the battery, down the frame rail and under the truck. My truck had a rubber grommet under the truck right in front of the passenger seat that the power wire comes up through. The ground you run to the passenger kick panel. The fuse panel unscrews and folds back, giving you access to a factory ground.
You'll need to slide the console back and grab the driver/passenger side front tweeter/mid and cut all the others.
