The Rock

The Rock




From the beginning
After a few changes in direction about doing some major mods to my FJ , then deciding to change the motor and s/c , then a few other ideas, After the new TT came out in the Cement color. I toyed with the idea of getting a new one. Then, one came in and I decided to look at it.
12/12/12, I went down and signed the papers .
Here's where the build begins.

2013 Cement TT. Notable mods that are new to me are, Crawl Control and Rear View Camera

"The Rock"
Welcome to The Rock Offroad
It seems like I rack my brain trying come up with a a name and the meaning behind it. This time it was simple, FJess, thought it looked like a rock . Thank you Jess.

Re: The Rock

And the modding begins here...

Since I have basically unassembled my truck many times to install all kinds of different stuff, I decided I would not do it this time. However, certain mods will need interior dis-assembly. The stereo is my first goal. I am using the Head unit out of Wikid , Kenwood 9990HD and the Subwoofer ,12" JL Audio Stealth box . The rest will be new purchases

Since I am going a different direction with how the inside of my truck will be configured, the last stereo components were going to take up too much space.
I am replacing both of the kicker amps with a major upgraded single 5 channel amp

Alpine PDX V9 D class, which provides 100 watts to each of the four channels and 500 watts to the sub channel. This is a big improvement. The Kicker 500.1 delivers 500 watts at 2 ohms, but since my JL Stealth box is 4 ohms, the Kicker only provided 275 watts.
The Alpine puts out 500 watts regardless of the ohms.



Looking at the Alpine verification certificate , the actual wattage was much higher 571 watts, for the sub channel and 113 watts, for each of the 4 channels .



Since I have this piece I will go ahead and install it. If it goes as planned it will be installed under the drivers seat. I can go ahead and prewire everything to the specific locations as well .




How do you like my new truck? Sorry for the grainy picture , it was dark out.
As you can see the seats are out . I will be mounting the amp under the drivers seat. I can pre run all the wiring for speakers, amp, frig, radio's and install o few more usb plugs. Hopefully when I switch the head unit over, ot will just be plugin in all the cables and wires
