Father and Son Project: 2002 Yukon - Rockford Fosgate Sound System Install - ROUND 2 - NEW Amp Rack installed - FIRED UP! page 23


Recommended Posts

It's a team effort...and it's HIS truck. I taught him how to solder years ago. Ain't no better time to put what he learned in action then now. With 24 wires on this plug that means 48 splice points and 48 heat shrink tubes. If any of you do this, i HIGHLY recommend you don't cut the thing off and attempt to re-attach. Do it one wire at a time. There are SEVERAL wires that are the same as each other. Like 4 reds, 3 greens, 2 with red stripe (for example), 4 yellows, a couple whites. You WILL fuck your ride up if you cut them and lose track of what is what. So that being said, he did 1 at a time. I don't have factory colors (i know, weak haha), but i do have what it takes to get the job done. Antheny made me VERY VERY proud. He soldered great and got it done. The HVAC is now in the center console and out of our way (no trim piece made YET). It works great.

Seems like a great kid and he's doing awesome work.

So when's pop's stepping aside and letting the kid take over the empire?

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.

A little video of the install process here. Puts all the work into prospective a little more than the pics can.

  • 1 month later...

my favorite thing in the world is to teach my son how to do something and watch him do it himself. Today we did rear brake pads and some 2" drop springs to level the ass end out. Nothing too drastic, but i had the springs in my shop for YEARS....so it was a no brainer while we had the vehicle on the lift. :)
