Alright so I'm putting an amp and sub in the trunk. I'm mounting the amp on the bottom left side. I'm afraid to drill down because it seems like the gas tank is directly below where it is. is this safe to drill?

i drilled it before.. just make sure when it breaks through, it don't go down to far or it will hit the gas tank.. it is about 2-3 inches under the tub.. be careful and take your time.

Lowering the tank is very easy. Put a floor jack under with a piece of wood and loosen the bolts ar the rear an let it down some.

Put the drill bit inside of nuts so when it breaks thru it can only go through a half inch. That's what I did when I mounted both my amps and had no problems. Remember just barely got thru use as many nuts as needed and go slow little patience will pay off.

Here is an idea that I did when mounting my amp. Use 1/4" spacers between the amp and the floor with the screws passing through them. This prevents the amp from sitting on the floor and will help prevent damage if you ever get water inside. Just don't flood it. ;)

This is actually a great idea! Mine are just placed there, no protection...

Also helps the amp cool a lot better.
