Known for their incredible audio and video systems, Auto Accessory Warehouse went to work creating one of its loudest systems to date. Pulling out all of the interior, the truck was gutted and Dynamat was applied everywhere. With the seats out of the truck, the rear bench was cut and made to be a pair of buckets. This one done to create enough room for the custom center console that starts underneath the dash and makes its way to the back wall. Housed in the suede-covered center console are six Orion amps, two of which are 800-watts for the highs, and four are 2,400-watt mono-block amps to power the eight 12-inch MMATTS subwoofers in the bed. Cutting the rear wall allowed the team to showcase some of its build talents. By laying down top and bottom mirrors in between the V-shaped enclosure, it gave an infinite subwoofer appearance.
Keeping tabs of the power are two 50-farad Stinger caps and two Optima batteries. An Eclipse AVN50D provides the signals for the subs and MMATS three-way components in the doors. Before covering them in two-tone suede and snake skin, the crew added 10-inch SAVV DVD headrests to the seats. With suede covering the headliner, three monitors were installed, which included one 15-inch and two 10-inch swivel screens. Seven-inch screens were also installed into the suede-wrapped sunvisors and the dash was smoothed and painted Kandy Apple Red with flames shaped into the mold.
Subtle yet totally custom, the interior features suede and snakeskin seats, a painted dash
Sky high and sounding great, the truck was not quite up to cover-story standards. In stepped All Auto Body of San Bernardino with paint and airbrush guns in hand. The entire truck was covered in House of Kolor Kandy Apple Red with sinister faces, skulls, and tribal designs appropriately airbrushed onto the surface. The paint is very much in-your-face and the details are amazing. Lastly, a Precision Billet Grille was added along with flame door handles and the bed received red bed lining with flames and an AAW logo.
While talking at the shop, we asked Mike what the toughest part about the build was. He laughed and said, "Spending the cash and thinking it wasn't going to get done because there were parts everywhere." According to Mike, the best part of the truck is "everyone's reaction when they see it." Mike parties like a rockstar and builds trucks that make rockstars envious. Besides his crew and shop, Mike wanted to thank his wife Kelly, and his two little girls Kimberly and Kalila, for all of their love and support.
