Appreciate all the comments. Not sure I understand this question? If you're asking me if I think my audio upgrade was worth the expense, my answer is yes- it's worth it to ME. The Overland stock system is really good. What I have now is exceptional IMO. I hear stories of people spending far more than what I spent to upgrade their car audio system, but this is about as far as I would go and I'm glad I did. Good luck.

Those tires looks good! What size are they?

Last questions, stock speakers would you want to sell them if so message me.
I'll see if I can get a couple pictures posted this weekend. Tires are 275/55/20. I have the speakers from the front doors, the little ones from the upper rear by the liftgate, and the factory sub with enclosure. If you send me a PM with your address I'll send you the speakers n/c if you cover the packing and shipping. I was planning to sell the sub and enclosure on CL. Let me know if you're interested.

Basically that was what I was asking. I meant do you have any regrets on spending that much with the results you received, but you already answered that. I'll hopefully be going the same route shortly

Re: Overland stereo upgrade and other pics

Thanks for sharing this with us. I've been thinking about doing the same thing. I'd like to know how much of a PITA it is to install yourself.
Brian.

Re: Overland stereo upgrade and other pics

Also, how did those components get mounted in the front door being they ar 6x9 and the components are 6x5?

I am probably going to copy your setup, minus the mono amp for the sub since
I have one already from a previous car. How is the sound quality comapred to the stock Alpine unit?

Re: Overland stereo upgrade and other pics

Are you using the stock 730N head unit?

I'm pretty sure you are since I don't see a separate HU listed under the equipment. I'm thinking of doing the same. I'd like to stick with the 730N for the factory look, but want a more substantial sound. I'll probably end up with a very similar set up. Focal components up front and JL stealthbox...unless I can get a custom built for about the same price.

Re: Overland stereo upgrade and other pics

I believe he is. I am going that route. Sticking with the 430, adding Focal IS 165 components, Alpine tweeters, jl audio stealthbox and lc6i. The difference is I am splurging for the Alpine PDX V9 amp.
