So with the amps moved you have more room for the box to get bigger.. Great just what you needed... lol
Looks good... I like this better than the 8's just looks cleaner to me..

No problem! Jared, did you create a route for the wires to get from the amps to the interior through the back of the bed/cab, or is there a natural way to get them there? Just curious......

Looks great! Are you going to run the wiring into the panel and then through to the cab?

Nit-picking here, any way to turn that amp cover on the left amp so that the wording runs down like the amp on the right?

Either way, paint me jealous.

I know the rcas to the 2500s look weird. I couldnt figure out if i should put them close to the amp bc either way they are going to be different lengths.
