I think the sub sounds better...I had it facing towards the front but the bass seems to sound louder now. Still not loud enough for me. I'll have to let you know to be patient because I am lazy and it might be a little while til I'm finished with it, but I will post photos...and by the way thanks!

If I didn't need to fold down the seats so often, I would definitely do something similar. I think I'd just leave the bottom open though. I can hear my girlfriend now, "Why did you build a coffee table in the back of your Jeep?"

I've always wanted to do something like this, but I'm no carpenter

How hard was it? Any specialty tools needed? And if ya don't mind could you throw a rough estimate of the $$ you have into it for materials?

It was pretty easy just need some motivation. If you can run a table saw or circular saw you will be good, oh yeah reading a tape measure helps too! I think I spent $35 on 2 pieces of particle board the drawer sliders were $16 a pair (the nice ones that can hold some weight) I've probably got $100 into it before the carpet. Good Luck!

You can find Arauco cabinet-grade plywood for $25 a sheet or so. I'd have used that instead. Particle board is okay as long as it doesn't get wet. Then you have a sponge instead of a board.

I think he said he is going to paint it. I think that will help with water. I've built many custom boxes with particle board, which I painted, and they hold up great! It would take a ton of water for it to become a sponge!

I would put some latches on those drawers so they dont slide open when you park on a hill and open the hatch.
