Yeah, DustyXB. I think its worth at least getting some new 6X9's. The order I plan on upgrading is:

1. Tint Windows - Keep people from peaking in to seeing my subs easisly
2. 2 Rear Speakers
3. 2 Door Speakers
4. 2 10's with amp

PS. I'm a sculptor by trade so I plan on building a custom fiberglass box that will sit in the back seat. Also if you do all the wiring yourself and installation, it will save you a ton of $$

cheers,
Monk

Did some parts hunting. Did a little research and found out that the 4.10 rear i wanted to use is not a locker. There is a 3.73 locker rear in the yard that I'm going to use.

I have an extended cab. did my back window and the two small side windows 5% and it cost me 120. I had a connection though full price I think it's like 160. He's a pro though. It's a big company that does window frosting on house and in offices and cars too

I think he charges more if you have a window in the back

Took my dash apart, sanded the rubbery gunk of the radio bezel, then put it all back together again. I'll take it all off again tomorrow so I can start painting after work.

Finish sanded the replacement door interior for the '98. Gotta finish the upper half of the outside so I can install the guts, then finish the rest. I can see light at the end of the tunnel for this project!

I've been workin on repairing my new used prerunner fenders. I'm in Cali and would get a ticket pretty quick if I didn't have flare fenders. I don't like the look but it's way cheaper than narrowing my axels. Here's some pics of a couple spots I've started on. Fiberglass is way easier than I thought it was gonna be! Got a ton more layers and sanding to do though.
