where your back seat lays down. there are two open spots back there where you can mount a sub and amp.also you could run your wires in the cowels in the floor along the door. you will want to run your power cables and rcas on opposite sides if you run your power through the firewall.

I run my wires down the door sills, and under the carpet where needed. Carpet comes up pretty easy, or atleast enough to get an arm in there. As far as the amps, under the seat or on the back wall of the cab. I built a "mount" for my amp with a piece of wood spaced off the cab to clear the vent, just used partical board and small 1x1" blocks on the corners of the board to space it out. Can take pics if you want...

My amp is mounted on a carpeted piece of board, it stands up behind the back seat. I removed the faux carpeting and have 2 10" subs mounted in individual boxes behind the seat, barely fits but sounds awesome.
