It's partially gonna depend on how much room your box uses up. Like in my trunk, there was no room to make an amp rack because of how big my box needed to be to be built to spec. That's why my amps are gonna be flush mounted in the back of the back seats.

I got a couple guys in my car club that have measured everything out and are gonna be there Saturday to lend a hand. I'll post the progress pics on monday. We should have all the wood cut and installed wit the system also hooked up. The vinyl might be a couple more weeks as I have not decided what color or colors to go with. Its gonna look sweet though!!! I got a really big car show to go to in March so I gotta get it on point before then.

I have never been a fan of taking my tire out but love the idea of it. If my car was all show or if it was trailered around then I would do it with out a thought. It really depends on you. Either way I'll probably like it.

It dosent bother me too much. I got free roadside assisstance so if anything happens, I can hve it towed to a shop to get a new tire. I drive 18 miles to work each day so its not too far, I'll take my chances hahaha
