    it was actually a posted access road, so it was legal, but there were a ton of side trails off of it running on to who knows what land that belongs to who knows who. i wasnt scared

    UPDATE TIME

    So its still coming together as I'm waiting on my sub, but I've recently installed the following

    JBL GTO938- 6x9 Front 3 way
    JBL GTO638- 6.5 Rear 3 way

    Kenwood Excelon KDC-X597

    and on the way

    JBL GTO804- 8" Sub

    day of arrival

    IMG_20140528_130052_777.jpg
    IMG_20140606_224326_979.jpg

    the teardown

    IMG_20140607_190808_132.jpg

    finished product

    IMG_20140609_103439_170.jpg

    mic location for BT

    IMG_20140607_190835_743.jpg

    and the remote for tailgating purposes

    IMG_20140609_103919_932.jpg



    sounds 100x better than stock, even before the sub

    No mods here, but some maintenance/addition of a tranny cooler.
