Many of you people will very well remember this truck as to Ryan (Boilermaker 774) sold it to me last year due to financial complications. Im currently finishing it off for myself and shes going to scream. Ill post pics so that I can refresh your memory as to what it looked like. I had major problems with the baffle as soon as I threw a few watts on it and it was ripping apart. So I had to sacrifice some of the cosmetics for strength and she is rock solid now and I can move to paint.

So anyways this is the long awaited build log continued.

20" RVMs, cant do too much since I live in Iowa and winters blow. This is my only driver. Its also rear wheel drive now since its bagged and the front shockwaves had to be taken out to clear the oil pan.

Pics of the enclosure fully built. Designer and builder was Adam Stemen out of Ohio, great guy and amazing glasser.

And this is where the baffle issues were being adressed. Terrible cracking along the seams and made the baffle move a half an inch when playing. So those had to be reinforced with angle iron, glass, and all thread to keep it from happening.

Still the same level 5s... when I bought it the truck had no equipment in it, just the subs and wall. I fixed the problems with the wall and threw in the batts, wire and amp and also finished off the back.

Thank you, still tons of work to be done, and lots of glassing left but she will get there. Not sure if Ill be competing yet this year or not, depends on the amp situation. If not Ill come out swinging a few MidWest SPL records hopefully next season.

Awesome. Things are starting to look good once again with your truck and build. Keep whoopin' some *** on the building bud!
BTW: what is the internal or external depth on this thing? The enclosure looks ridiculously deep lol. And it doesn't look like your truck is the extended or seven seat style? Definitely digging the cosmetics inside and out too.

The reason why it seems so deep is because the enclosure is really far forward. My seats cant go past the B pillar without either hitting subs or on the corners. Its about 37 inches deep total from front to back. From the B pillar post to the C pillar post is only how deep it really is.

Got my a pillars color matched again, and headliner glassed and carpeted. Glassed it so I can add components to it later and it will be strong enough not to bounce around. (like a plane cockpit)

Next is color matching the enclosure inside and out. Going to be expensive for silver green metallic paint, but will look good :)

I love GMT360's and your TB is fantastic. What lowering kit is on it? KBEE or Belltech? Bags in the back, or springs? Did you use DJM A-Arms to fix balljoint angle in the front? 6 lug hubs still?
I'm lowering my 2005 Rainier, another member of the GMT360 family, and I'm probably going Belltech, so just wondering what suspension setup is in there.

Love what you're doing with this. Keep us updated!
