I used the JL's in my 09 super crew when I had it and they sounded amazing. I had to trim just a little bit of metal but definitely worth it.

At first glance and trial fit , i thought i was going to have to trim a good amount of metal...but after mocking up the baffle and realizing the speaker tapers as it goes back..it was minimal trimming as you noted.

my door is def heavily damped, so I'm thinking i'll have minimal rattles..and I'm not planning on running them full tilt just enough to get a little punch up front as well as anchor the sub to the front stage

Yeah Ford calls it a SuperCrew... I love my 2010 but I don't think I'd buy a new one...too many issues with them that Ford had decades to redesign and fix and never did..leaving the problems on the table, and the customer to deal with

I can't wait to get both in and dial the gain in to really hear what they can do

Just stalked out? I'm guessing fuse 27 for the fuel pump melted. Another awesome design fault by Ford :-( fuse legs are too small to handle the current!

So I ended up with a slight issue with installing these ZR800's

Turned out when i used a 3/4 HDPE the speaker was way to close to the door card, hitting it at high volumes...so i rabbeted the baffle to counter sink the speaker into the door more. ends up it worked great resolving the hitting the door card issue. BUT now it hit the window...just barely but enough youd hear a clunk!

So i decided to redo the baffle completely... I used .47 inch Plxi as the main baffle using the old baffle as a template

After testing the window..it worked awesome! So then i added the green 3/4 plexi to the dront of the baffle to act as a spacer to make sure the door card stayed far enough from the driver, and jsut put CCF on those pieces to make sure there wasnt going to be any vibrations!

Looking great and that was a wise solution for that.

@Timelessr1 - just came across this build log. Since the original pictures don't appear correctly, do you have a link to all these pictures somewhere? I have a 2012 Screw and would love some inspiration/ideas. Thanks!
