I'll try to get a complete cut list together at some point, probably once all of the wood work is done.

Locating pins for the "secret" compartment (not so secret now, I guess).

Held in place with rare earth magnets, locating pins keep everything lined-up.
MagLite and fire extinguisher brackets mocked-up on center lid:

Carpet installed. I made sure to mask the bedlined area to avoid getting the spray adhesive on it. Use 3M Super77, spray both surfaces liberally, then let tack-up for at least five minutes. Once glue has "set", slowly lay the carpet onto the box, smoothing it out as you go--I used a Bondo spreader for this. Work it into all of the corners and edges, then rough-trim the excess off wih a SHARP utility knife blade. Once the glue has dried for an hour or so, go back and carefully trim the edges with a sharp utility knife blade
This is the center panel:

I like how this looked on the old box, so I incorporated them onto this one. These are the original Ranger emblems that were removed when i put my '06 emblems on. They're held in place by the locating pins, which are pressed into a couple of blind holes-they fit really snugly.

For some reason, the color of the carpet looks kinda blue in these pics--probably my POS camera. This carpet doesn't match my interior as well as the old one did, but overall, I'm very happy with how this on turned out.

Thanks guys-
It's 9:07 and Taylor is "Offline"--he'd better be putting in the box that I sent him since it was delivered at 11:40 this morning!
Gotta keep the jack cover thing, though; my jack's in there.
I'm going to keep my eyes open for some different carpet--the stuff that's on Taylor's matched my interior almost exactly.

Yup, this thing got here pretty fast actually.

I cant wait to put it in. Unfortunately, it might be this weekend before I get to it (work, yay)

The quality of this thing is top notch. Nice work Mike!

Build the woofer into the box--passenger side with the lid, driver side with the sub. Probably have enough enclosure size if you made the box a little taller (deeper) than mine. That would be pretty trick.
