Stock head unit, we'll see if it is any good after some tune time

Subwoofers - Image Dynamics ID8 pair
Front woofers in the door - Image Dynamics X69
Front dash speakers - Audible Physics AR3-A wide-banders
Front tweeters - Audible Physics AR20
Pulled apart the rear seat area first, man getting those seats out was annoying (looong bolts)
Back panel pulled
Rear panel raw and clean (simple diluted degreaser is what I use)
Its a truck, so the interior panels can go in the bed during the teardown. I laid down some moving blankets to keep things scratch-free
I'm impressed with the factory carpet quality, including the foam backing
I decided to try a new deadener. I usually use Knu Konceptz Kolossus which is some exceptional stuff. However I was in the mood to try something different so I ordered Reckhorn ABX from Amazon. I would say it competes with Knu Konceptz lower grade stuff, as far as quality, weight, thickness, etc. But so far its been a pleasure to work with. Gloves are smart if you're going to be running your hand over it, as the foil is razor-sharp.
I laid a bit of deadener on the plastic rear panel
Rear panel readied, can't mount it yet because the rear side panels tuck in behind it
