Alright guys im in the process of installing a new amp! I just bought one from hannibal today and i started the wiring process as soon as i got home! So far i have ran wire through one of the doors, the power to the back wall, the remote wire, rca's. I'm just taking my time and making it look as clean as completely possible. I don't want anyone to know its there.
I Drilled the holes for all the wires to poke through to make it a very clean install today until it got too dark to continue. Tomorrow i should be finished with wiring the rest of the doors and tuning and wiring it all up. I'm very excited to see how this goes, but as of right now i think my truck is in about 500 pieces that all snap together! ha

this is before i started ripping into all the snap ons!

ha yeah it should be done by tomorrow! I had to put the amp upside down just because otherwise i would be crossing power and rca's which i don't think would have been a good idea so i just put it upside ha

Well if it wasn't for the lights I'd say just flip it over.

Hell no one will see it anyway.

haha exactly what i thought. Thanks a lot jeff! ha it should be done by the end of tomorrow... running the wires through the door is a bitch because there are other wires from when i added the power door locks. But with enough grip i think i can do it. You got any pointers to doing it?

Nope not really........ Just keep pushing and have patients it'll go.....

Well actually you might be able to try a coat hanger straightened out....

Try to run it through there and then if it goes through tape the wire to it and pull it back through.

Well i didn't get to finish today, i had to go to work at 4 and i sound proofed my whole truck while i had the carpet up to wire the doors. I got all the wiring done except for the remote wiring, and plugging the power to the source but still not really sure how to hook the remote wire up. Any suggestions? jeff was saying go into the power window fuse since i don't have power windows, but the question is i don't have a fuse to hook it up to and can't really get one. Does anyone have any other ideas or jeff do you have any other ideas? Thanks.

Also i was able to take off the logo and flip it so it is no longer upside down :bang:
