    Pictures after I bought the truck in March of 2011:






    I always had plans for lift wheels and tires so the first thing I did was upgrade the brakes
    Dimpled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads

    Head Unit



    Original Sound equipment, to be honest I had this set up for about 3 months before I started plans for this console.

    Soundstreams for the front doors and the 4 Subwoofers, the build actually went into hold at this point for a little while shops either didn't want to do it or wanted to charge all kinds of money. I'm a do it yourself kind of guy but I had absolutely no idea about car audio, almost sold all the equipment.



    So while the build was on hold I built these bad boys, one of my favorite features on the truck:

    Re: 2005 F150 4x4 Awesome Daily Driver Build

    of course me not knowing much about car audio and really wanting to do this build I started doing research and pretty much came out empty handed on any consoles with 4 10s, a shop or two even said I was crazy and I should just wall it. No can do I use my backseat too much so I enlisted Vinny, now a friend to show me how to car audio. He's been doing car audio longer than I've been alive and it's a great honor to learn from the guy.

    Y'all are the lucky forum, this was actually a really really SLOW build I go to school full time, and work full time. Vinny works full time and has kids. This is my latest build thread I'm doing and well y'all are lucky we're this far along to where I can dump pictures!

    Re: 2005 F150 4x4 Awesome Daily Driver Build

    At this point the console was still sealed, we thought we were not going to have enough airspace for ported:

    We tested it like this and it sounded killer but deep down in my heart I wanted ported



    VIDEO:

    when we tested it sealed, hardly any tuning just threw it in the truck real quick to see what it sounded like.
