    Lookin good! I don't think I've seen your truck before. Seen shots of the interior and the rims but no overall exterior shot. Is it 4x?

    Thank you. No complaints on the Kenwood. I’ve used the brand since 2002 and have always been pleased.

    Thanks Matt! Sometimes I wish I bought an AC or RCLB but my dog loves the roomy back seat and he’s not small. It’s always greener on the other side.

    It's my first v8 and I'm loving it. It doesn't really need any more power than the vvti, but naturally I want more because reasons lol
    300hp just has a nice ring

    No problem. If you go 6.5 for the rears, you can reuse the stock mount.

    When I looked them up on Amazon they also recommended spacers and speaker connectors for Toyota vehicles. Do we need those also to make the change to aftermarket speakers or just the adapter rings? Thanks.

    For the jbl system I didn’t need spacers and the connectors I got for free from crutchfield didn’t work. I used the original speaker wires and soldered them to the wires from the new speakers. Same with the tweeters. So just the adapter are needed when swapping out the jbl system.

    What, if anything, did you do to the rears to get the new speakers to fit/work?

    If I remember correctly, just unscrew the oem speaker from the mount and I was able to align the new speaker tabs so the screws went into the channel. You can kind of see here:
    Red is where the oem speaker screwed into the mount.
