Ok I have a 95 S-dime ext cab. I got sick of my sub box taking up all rear area so I want to move them to the stock jump seats area. With help I got from reading this forum about what all it took. I took the jump into the deap in, and build a 3/4 MDF rear box, and cut the shhh out of the plastics to make room. And as you can see worked out pretty good.

sorry about picture size i couldn't get them sized down for some reason keep messing up. I enjoyed this project, next project a simple dash build nothing crazy,  just flat top, with fiberglass to make the curved front parts, with fiberglass console to match.
