I'm guessing you have a crew cab. Well you don't have to go with a shallow sub but ussually people do 2 10" subs in a sealed box with now divider. You can get away with 2 12" shallow subs I beieleve though. I will be going with the 2 12" shallow subs myself this time probably. The reason I don't have any in there now is a just got the crew cab and I had a ext cab before so my setup was totally different.

I have an 8" Probox in my truck and it pounds very hard. Don't be fooled by the size of the driver because it is not the only thing to consider when looking at a sub. A shallow mount sub is not going to sound nearly as good as a typical conical style subwoofer. The box design is important in dispersing the bass.

I have a single 12" ported enclosure from www.spl2k.com. The sub is a Pioneer Shallow Mount. Saying it pounds hard is an understatement!

ive got a homemade box behind the seat in my CC. its got a old Rockford Fosgate DVC 12" in it. i did have to move the back seat forward about an inch. i unbolted the seat from the seat bracket and drilled a couple new holes in the seat bracket and reinstalled. sounds ok to me. im gonna build a better box soon, as i made this one in a hurry.

Well if your going to spend that kind of money you need to go to a good speaker store that does custom work and let them design something for your truck. I bet that box would hit pretty good but not as good as a box that they design to get more air space. I just get the feeling that you won't have enough air space for each sub with that box. But I could be wrong. If I were you I would talk to some speaker shops first. Just my opinion
