Step 1: Cut Speaker Holes

I prefer to use fat 50 Ammo cans so I can install larger speakers.
I used a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade.

Step 2: Paint

I did a custom 2 tone metallic black and silver to match his truck.

Step 3: Wiring

Added 2 5.25 kicker speakers with Kentinger Bluetooth amp.
Wired a red led strip to light up sub port.
Installed rechargeable 20 hour battery.

Step 4: Mounted Bulldog

Purchase a Mack truck hood ornament and mounted it to the top of Speaker box.

Step 5: Custom Dash Plaque

Added a custom dash plaque personalized with his name. All Mack trucks have these!

Step 6: Final Touches

Wrapped handle in a camo paracord to prevent rattling. Added a sticker to the back
And the final touch was a Budweiser bottle opener so we could have a couple of adult beverages while we listen!
