Default My accomplishments today

Got some things done over the past few days. Big 3, got my amp installed, and have all my wires ran for when I get my new door speakers.


What's hidden under the seat:



A bad picture of how I ran my wire:


And some randoms:






My clean ass bass knob set up. Held on with hot glue haha:





Ignore the blurry pictures. It's late and I was tired and sweaty and was ready to just be done with it.

curious to know why you ran that power wire on the outside of the cab vs. just going though the firewall?

0g wire is a little too big to run in the cab. It was just as easy and clean to run it under the cab as it would be to run it in the cab.

any worry of corrosion or a rock popping up and cutting it or something like that? I'm not saying you way is wrong, I just have never seen this before that's all, I ran 0 gauge wire through firewalls with no problems (drilled a hole and used an appropriate grommet).

No worries. My truck doesn't/won't get wheeled much so my biggest fear is some ******* coming up and cutting the wire. And that would take a little bit of effort considering the thickness of the wire.

Nice install

Just a recommendation. you should have ran the power wire to the dist. box instead of the battery. There are 2 post you can connect to
