well after a lot of this
The camo stip, which was already peeling slightly due to improper storing before i put it on, was starting to really come off now so I decided to rip it off and bring it to a shop and have them paint the trim to match the rest of the plastic trim pieces. I realized the hard way what serious mudding can do to your truck so I've stopped for the most part, due to putting $2500 into the front end and having to paint my splotchy frame and axles and lift.New paint looks great though! I also went ahead and painted all the plastics on the truck the same color black including the honeycomb grill. will get a picture of the frame later.
Also around this time as well as my last major mod so far, I wanted to go BIG system wise and brought it to an audio shop to get it all professionally done. I sold my 2010 clarion and purchased a 2012 clarion in dash touch screen dvd head unit with navi and installed a reverse camera (love this radio, loud, has a lot of audio options, and uses swype like your smart phone). I traded in my 10 inch subs and bought two kicker L7 square subwoofers. Because of their massiveness I had to raise my back seat four inches and I still don't have half of the box size I want but I like my back seat. To power the L7s I got a 2500 watt soundstream amp and then to give it enough power I got an extra battery made specifically for sound systems. I also wanted some speakers outside of my truck for bonfires, parties, or basically any outdoor shin dig. So i got four kicker marine speakers (two in the grill, which you can see in the above picture, and two under the toolbox) powered by a 500 watt soundstream amp and man are they loud! I have switches mounted inside to control volume of the subs and marine speakers. The audio shop decided the best place to put the amps, fuses, and extra battery was in the toolbox so they did up a custom spot for them.
yes that amp is almost half as long as my toolbox
