That box is sick!! Good work! Does the 8" hit pretty hard pushin that much to it? I'd be a little worried about the amp being there and exposed, but I'm sure it fits your needs very well. It seriously looks great though!

Again good freakin job!

Okay I see now I thought you had the amp mounted up on the opposite side! Guess I need to look more at the pics

Seriously good job, how many hours did it take you to do the whole project?

That is really nice and creative!

I would like to so something like this, But with marine grade components to resist water.

Thanks for the ideas!

Phase 2 Complete. Bought a Tow Rig
Phase 3 on-hold. Buying a trail rig. Thinking a TJ or XJ

nice job! the only thing that I would worry about is the amp overheating in there.

I was thinking the same thing. Let us know how it does. Like the idea. Clean, doesn't attract lots of attention, and still could fit my 100lb dog in the back. He might like the back massage.....

NICE!!

Any reason you h an 8 and not a 10?

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.
