Bedliner'd my toolbox, sub + box, some new pics

hey, so a couple weeks ago I took of my leer cap and got my tool box sprayed with bedliner, and the following weekend on spontaneously decided to go buy a sub and amp and a sheet of mdf to throw together something for my truck, I have the carpet for the sub box now but just waitin for the time to put it on.

The sub is an 8" Infinity, amp is a pioneer, the thing pounds like I couldn't believe, most of what I listen to is rock or metal, but nice for the odd time I listen to something with some bass.
It's the first time I've every put together a box, it's sitting on little stilts because of a slight miscalculation on how high that bump in the centre of the vehicle comes up... :(.. But for the 10 bucks is cost to build I'm not too worried, sounds great for now, and I'll eventually come up with a new lower profile shape and size hopefully.

Thanks :), ya I originally wanted a black tool box but everyone said the powdercoat always ends up chipping, especially if you get one painted from factory... then I decided, what the hell, avoid the risk, spend a fortune and get it sprayed (I didn't do this myself). $10 per sq/ft by Line-X, costly, but looks cool IMO

:), ya and in some photos they really seem to get an enhanced oversized look, makes the truck look twice as big as it does in person, one or two in particular have this effect... ah, these two:

ya, i've got the bed done too. Love having it done, you can practically throw a golf ball in the back and leave the tailgate down and it wont fall out.. not exactly a good example, but ya, its durable as hell, looks cool, keeps moisture from sitting between a plastic liner and the paint, and ya, its not as slippery as the plastic so stuff does tend to stay put more.... though I did break 3 bottles of beer last week cause I forgot they were back there and was taking some back roads home from the beer store

It wasn't difficult at all. I pulled my deck out far enough to fit my hand into the hole where it normally sits, and with my other hand I fed the wires up and grabbed em.

Oh, and as far as the rest of the body of the truck, gettin the wires from the amp to the dash, I just had to remove the plastic piece of trim that runs along the doors and I just fed the wires under the vinyl floor covering... Not sure if older rangers had vinyl or if it was still carpet, but thats how I did it.

haha, I probably will... for a brief time I was debating selling my truck to help get myself out of debt, but I think I'm just gonna consolidate my debts and just try to get rid of things I don't need/want anymore... examples, stock rims/tires, drum set, leer cap, and FENDER FLARES lol... Ya you'll get your flares.

Sure, you may want your truck to grow up, but like kids, they only get more expensive when they grow up... :(...
