Cool, I figured I was going to go type R since the place im going to do this at has the Type Rs but if I can get away with type X im going that route, yea its more $$$ then I want to spend, but I figure if I want it right and good I might as well do it the way I want, plus after being on unemployment and dealing with the chit I have lately I think I at least deserve a little something special right??

Sandy great project. I would like to make a suggestion. Turn your horn backwards. It will keep road grime out of the trumpet and it does not affect sound. Its an old truck driver tip when hiding trumpet horns.

Rain? Jaime, have you been getting rain?!!!! It has been a very wet year that's for sure! As for subs, I have a JL Audio sub in my truck. I don't know anything else about it other than it's a JL Audio. And it's plenty for me!

Jaime...The Type R's are very good....I had a set of 12's and liked them...

The DVC (Dual voice coil) Type R's, are nice...If one voice coil blows, simply hookup the other side....

I don't think you can fit the Type X's in behind your seat....Might not even get the R's in there....

I hope you did some sanding before you painted underneath, other wise, it will just rust from underneath the paint. However painting like that will provide some protection, and slow the rusting process down, but eventualy the paint will start to peal. best advice, sand every bit of rust, through on some marine grade rust converter, then mental primer paint, and go from there. but otherwise, truck does look nice.

Wes, Ill look into the DVC, granted I may or may not but I will be talking to a local audio guy that I know and I will have him check, he said he has some Type R's in stock that would fit our trucks, I had him go look up our trucks and see what sizes would fit (already knew from the info from you guys ) and had him check for proper sizes

I did, as best as I could with out any power sanders as I have limited work space and what not, so I sanded as best as I could, and I did use a rust reformer type thing so that should help, I didn't get every little square inch tho but I did get what I could, as best as I could

Im here In Louisville, Ky Scooter. You? any help you can provide would be accepted and I would be thankful for

Yea a few months ago around October or November (i think, may have been before) we had a monsoon like rain here and I think water splashed into them unknowingly as I know I went through a few puddles and what not...

We've had plenty of rain too! I know you guys in Louisville got hit hard as well. Actually, pretty much the whole state has been hit hard. According to our local weather people, this is the wettest year on record, and the year ain't done!

I work that show every year. Unfortunately, I don't get much time to look around. It's called the Mid-America trucking Show. How to Attend the 2012 MATS | Mid-America Trucking Show It don't cost anything to attend if you register ahead of time. Just register as an owner-operator and they will send you passes. Just be ready for some junk mail from different vendors. And, you are an owner-operator. You do own your own pickup truck! The show is for semi trucks and such, but there are some things there for the smaller trucks too, just not much. If you want to see chrome, this is the place!!!

I work the Axle Surgeons booth, usually on Fridays. My brother works it on Saturdays. Usually he and I don't decide which days we work until that week. The corporate owner sets up the booth on Thursday morning and is there all weekend. Thursdays are usually open just for "corporate V.I.P. folks" till 1:00 or so, then it's open to the public. He likes for us to help him out on Friday and Saturday cause that's when it's the busiest. I'll let you know when it gets close!
