Factory Sub?

Just out of curiosity, how hard is it to retrofit a factory sub when the truck didn't come with one. Does it need an amp? And where is a factory sub located? Thanks for the help.

The factory sub has an amp on it. Its not hard to bolt in the factory sub, but you would need to run your own wires or buy the harness to make it all work. Its probably just easier to go aftermarket. I gave my factory sub away to a guy that was going to do the same thing, and he ended up just going aftermarket.

Gotcha thanks for the input. I'll probably go after market and make my own custom box. I Know that it's tight behind the rear seat and was exploring other options. Thanks again

It is tight, but a shallow mount 10" fits no problem in a custom box. That's what I have in my truck now.

I am running a single 10. The amp is mounted to the back panel of the cab. it was placed on a raised area with short self tappers to prevent poking holes all the way through the cab.
