I used some old scrap plastic to cover the hole left by the jack mount and glued the carpet over the back wall plastic cover. Clamped it down over night, and VOILA! A carpeted back wall!



I added a stand-off cover on top of the sub box made from 1/2 plywood, and PVC pipe adapters with the threads cut off to deter any would be thieves. Plus I can set things like groceries and stuff behind the seats.



Yes, I know "But the amps will get too hot"- No, they wont. There is about 3/4 of an inch of space above the amp, and I dont have them on for long durations or at such a high demand for power to get them heated up.

Was that B&M shifter hard to do, was it a kit or custom?

He didn't. He made it.

I really like what you've done with your 2011. It's one thing to throw goodies into your truck, it's another to make it look good at the same time.

I wish I could take credit for building it. I must be honest, I bought it online, and was completely surprised. It was made with pretty good quality and was actual 3/4 inch MDF. The connectors kinda blew goats for nickels, but I had plans to use something different anyways

Very nice work. Was there not a problem with keeping the warranty fully covered with some of the Mods you did. There are a few things I want to add to mine but don't want any warranty void when it comes to certain things

Ford canada states that warenty will only be void if and alteration or mod had caused direct failure to part or parts plus it depends on the dealer that you go to. The dealer that I deal with has allot of guys with jacked trucks so they are more lenient with lifted trucks
