Hey guys, i have 2 rockford fosgate 12" p2s in my truck in a ported box. The problem is that my box wont stay in one place in the back of the cab. Its only 38" wide so theres plenty of room for it to slide. The transmission hump and the hump at the back of the cab wont let it sit flat. Please throw out some ideas so i can keep this box still. Oh, and i want this to look legit so no bolting it to the cab (Dont want to drill a hole in my baby)

Thanks

4 supports that run the width of the box:
2 on each end and 2 that run parallel with the hump.

Where in Al?

you could also take the jack stuff out and some how and incorperate it it into being a vertical brace for the box. the only problem then if you want to put the cover back on you would have to trim a bit off the cover... or buy one from a junkyard and trim that one.

i made a little temporary amp rack where the jack was, and the jack stuff still fits there nicely.

build you a shelf to place the box on it helps alot... heres one i built for my buddy (sorry its a chevy s10) he has a huge box that sits on it ported with 2 12s and 2 amps that both mount down to the front of it just in front of the box hope u get somethin u like in there =)

You could try running straps, similar to wall ties from the bottom of the speaker box (1 on each end) run the straps to where your jump seats bolt in, take the seats out, drill holes in the end of the straps and put the seats back in. Then you don't need to drill into your truck and you can hide the straps under the carpet. I like the platform that tskater14 made though, very nice idea if you're willing to go that route!
