Looks good, but only thing is I would try to find another place for that PA speaker, it stands out way too much right there....

I thought it was illegal to have a pa hooked to a power source, so wouldnt a cop pull you over if he can see the pa speaker?

Not that I know of.
I mounted the speaker where I did because I didn't feel like removing the grill to put it behind the grill. That would have been my first choice, but Oh well.

Yeah, if nothing else tuck it up under the lower valance, should be an easy move...I can understand not wanting to pull the entire grill, but I bet you could get it under the lower grill opening.

I wouldn't waste anytime moving that PA. Can you imagine how much water it will take on if you go romping through a big puddle. Plus it just doesn't look quite right. Itz not hard to remove the grille. Thats where mine is.

I am pretty sure that all vehicle PA speakers are made to withstand water....but I agree with you to just move it on up behind the main grill.

I got it at Radio Shack, I think it was $10-15 and it works really well.

Awesome, thanks. One more question if I may. Did the mounting hardware come with it too, meaning all you had to add was the fiberglass antenna?

Yes the hardware came with it. The antenna is seperate. There are actually 2 parts to the mounting bracket, that particular bracket is made for mounting on mirrors, but it works great how it is set up on my truck. If you hav anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Mine's behind the grille beside the siren for my alarm system. It's barely noticeable and hella loud.
