    The tweeter pods look pretty good so far!
    I wanted to do the same but I already had holes in my doors from my last system and decided to be lazy

    Here are a few pics of the screen from when I disassembled it.

    Back side with the LCD control board and such


    Front side with everything still intact


    Front side with the cables disconnected to remove the actual LCD panel itself


    And here is a shot of the LCD panel resting in the back side of the dash


    There are a few things I need to trim off the back side so that the screen can go up to back side of the dash panel, then I will put some padded double sided tape, bout an 1/8" thick to pad the screen from the dash a bit. Currently thinking of wrapping the screen with foil (as a release agent and to protect it. Then pouring fiberglass resin our maybe some duramix around the edges of the screen up to the thickness of the LCD panel, then using the metal tabs that were used in the factory bezel to attach the screen to the dash panel.

    Let me know what your thinking, might work out better, and I am always open for different ideas.

    Thanks man

    Being lazy is nice lol, luckily if I need to or want to change it up as it sits now I haven't cut anything, but I'm sure that won't last long lol. The more I progress on this build the more I am wishing I could find a similar truck in the junk yard so I could have back up interior panels.

    I have a parts car in my garage (I traded my ps3 for) but the panels have power window switches and my car has roll up windows or else I would do some pods.

    let me try and explain my idea... if i have to, i'll draw it out and post a picture i will.
    the same way you made that fiberglass piece that you mounted under your dash with the with the HU... make one that comes over the dash, and mount the monitor in that... you can attach it at the top and let the front part rest over the wood grain. i know it would not be flush mounted the way you wanted... but it's an option other than cutting the trough the wood grain and everything...
    might be a dumb idea tho...

    That is the way to go right there. I used to have a few 80-86 Fords that I went through and was always easy to get whatever parts I needed from the junkyard and even started to get some in stock just laying around. But this truck is too new I think for me to be able to find in the yard.

    Okie, I got what your saying. I am going to keep it in mind. I'm not sure if I would be able to make it work while making it even resemble an OEM install is the only problem. I'm sure if I put the screen behind the dash it won't be all that OEM and trick people but I am gonna try.

    Thinking absolute worst case I could send out my dash to one of the refinishing places and get a new wood grain applied to my newly formed dash, or buy a new panel (hopefully from a junk yard, but probable the dealer) and then drop down to an 8" or 7" screen which should install nice and easy.

    Guessing my tweeter pods scared everyone away lol. I think I need to do a little more fiddling on the aiming and then wrap them up with an old t-shirt and finish them up.

    the tweeter pods are in a nice location... once they are finished it should look sweet.

    I'm pretty new at the imagine part of things too, but I thought the tweets should be focussed on the same point (ie. driver's head, center of vehicle at head height...).

    Correct me if I'm wrong, cause I'm going to be doing the same thing with my RSD's soon.

    Looks good mang, best of luck on the rest of the install. I know it is probably killing you waiting on those subs.

    Yea I am not 100% sure on that either. I would kinda like the passengers to enjoy the sound as much as me but I will fiddle around with aiming the passenger tweeter at my head as well and see if that helps a bit. I'll definitely need to pick up a laser pointer for that. Luckily with just the hot glue I can move things around and nothing is set in stone. Maybe I will leave the tweets in a movable phase until I get the subs in and installed around early september. Should give me enough seat time to try out a few positions.

    Thanks man Yea I've been trying to not think about it lol cause I can't wait to try em out. Least if anything if gives me more time to focus on getting everything else done. I found lately just getting the speakers in I wasn't accomplishing anything cause I would go out to the truck to do some work and end up just sitting there listening to music. I can see the same thing only much worse going on when I get the subs.

    Yeah, I think ideally you want them both pointed at your head. As you do, I want the passenger to enjoy, and give me compliments on, the nice sounding system, so I think I will first try pointing them head level to the center of the truck (Above the center console).

    But, you are a lot further along that I am, so please let me know how you make out.

    Sounds good, I will try em all out. Heck to me it sounded darn good with the initial crappy angling but I had read they sound better on axis and my dad mentioned the upper highs missing so I thought I should try this out. Aimed towards center probable won't be that far off axis so might work out good. Think I will flip em towards the center this weekend after a bit more listening as they are now. Thanks for the tip.

    Our trucks probably aren't all that different inside so hopefully what works for me will nearly work for you.

    That's what I'm hoping. They have the same basic cab shape. The only difference might be the windshield shape, which in this case isn't making any difference.
