Model: Frontier
Trim: SV
Color: Black

Just got my this, my first truck, a few weeks ago. I'm not very mechanically inclined but I plan to do what I can.

Overall Initial Plans:
Upgrade factory stereo with aftermarket bluetooth reciever -done
Figure out a way to incorporate my 10" subs/amp
Bull Bar - done
Fog Lights
Nerf Bar - done
CAI
Bully Dog

I'm sure more will find it's way into my small list.

Adding pictures of the Bed Rug liner which was already installed. Doesn't look like the bed of the truck was ever used.

Looking great so far! Love the black and chrome, thought about it on mine, but I already had the body colored grill. Can't wait to see more!

On top of all this - I'm an engineer for large fixture company with pretty much free access to do what I want including running my own things through the routers. I plan on doing my own sub box for (2) 10" subs since why buy it when I can just make it easily. I intend to fully engineer it and then post the inventor/autocad models and likely a cutlist if anyone is interested. ::wink::

Already have 2 10" subs & a rockford 360.2 mono amp to go in when I finish the box. These sounded great in my grand prix. Should kick in a fully open cab i'd imagine.

Installation of the Joying head unit went really simple. The wiring harness they sell is a direct plug and play. No cutting or stripping/splicing any wires together. For now I just installed the head unit. I'll get to the backup camera install likely tomorrow.






Location for the gps receiver.





Not exactly thrilled with how far it sticks out using the metra kit. But the fit was absolutely as snug as it could possibly be. I had to use a flat head screwdriver to push it past the little screws on the side of the unit and force it in as far as i could just to get it to fit. Unable to use the trim ring that metra supplies with the kit. It just won't fit around the joying unit. Not even close. And the trim ring joying supplies doesn't look any better either. I will say that the sound coming from this unit is much louder than the stock unit.
