    i put mine under my back seat drivers side ill try and take a picture for you tommorow but that wouldnt help unless you told me if you had a back seat or single cab, if its a single cab most guys mount them directly behind the drivers door against the back of the cab..

    I dont have any pics, but mine is mounted behind my driver's seat on the cab wall. I it is mounted on a piece of aluminum which is bolted to the wall and them I have an aluminum cover that goes over the entire unit and bolts to the back plate. Being that I have a regular cab I store stuff behind my seats so I wanted my power supply protected from falling objects. When I had my ext cab I had the exact same setup under the middle rear seat, I had it protected so it didnt get kicked by a passenger.

    bolt it right to the back cab wall behind your backseat
    easiest place i think

    Definitely ditch the wire nuts for some shrink tube butt connectors. I have mine mounted in the center console thing between the driver and passenger seats.

    Sorry I don't have a picture handy, My power supply is mounted under the drivers side rear seat(fold up seat) right on the floor. mount it up off the floor to avoid water leaking into the unit!!!

    i had to cut the cover down about 2 inches but it was also the galls version of the whelen so it might have been a different height

    yeah I have a 690 under the frount seat and it fits perfectly. I just might need to use a right angle drill to make the holes. you guys havent had a problem with it screwed to the carpet it says not to in the manual online I dident seem to think it would matter thow.

    i cut my carpet out like it says
    its supposed to be metal on metal to dissipate the heat created and prevent the supply from over heating
    will it matter maybe... maybe not
