I like the blue lights at the feet, are those ones you plug in your 12v? And the touch screen is exactly what I wanted, how much did your flat black paint job cost?

Yea. We party a lot and now I flip a switch and u can hear music outside my truck. It's sick. And I cut slits in box so u can hear. Plus they waterproof speakers. Neat little mod.

----------

Thanks Devin! And white is clean! The flat was a mistake. Wrong clear coat.. sometimes it would be nice to have a clean paint like white or purple or blue that shiny and can be waxed. But I guess its different. Lol

Nah man, flat black is so sick, the truck is nice, I love all the mods took a lot of time and money, how did you wire the tool box speakers from the head unit?

U can splice from one of the wires there. Or just take it from the amp which I did. I ran it from amp to inside box. Then bridged speakers together. The easy part was extending the positive wire into my dash and just cutting a switch into it to flick them on and off. We have noise driving violations here. so gotta turn them off when on the road. Lol. But I use them when I get idiots next to me. Haha.

----------

By the way. Thanks man. It means a lot when u do all the work but to especially make a build thread. It takes time. Haha. And its nice to know ppl look at it and will read everything. Lol

Yeah I was thinkin is go on Craigslist, get a dirt cheap one, and what does it to to the storage of the box, because I have a single cab with a sub behind the seat, Ineed a toolbox for extra storage,..do the speakers totally hinder the whole thing?
