If I can fit 3 I got to do it lol .  I know I can fit them as in the cubic feet they need but just going to have to see if the 3 subs and port will fit on the face of the wall. Really going to try

Looks like fun! Have you considered using birch ply and white pine framing to cut down on weight?

Suspension wise, there are several types of ways that you can lift or stiffen the rear suspension. What you will really need to be careful of is justifying the mechanical limits of the chassis and/or axle & suspension parts like brackets or hardware when making the choice.

Lol. If my new enclosure was mdf it would weigh twice what it does now. But that's how we built my old box. Half mdf half birch. If ya got it use it!

Who thinks I should upgrade my big 3 to 4/0 since im running 4/0 now ? . . Seems like it really wont make a difference since its only a couple feet of 1/0 . . .  Im running 2 4/0 positive runs from front to back and only have 1 run of 1/0 for my big 3

I would just to not create a choke point. I've got 2 runs of 2/0 and a double 2/0 big 3. And 1 2/0 ground front to back tho I may change that to another run of power.

 Unless your alternator is rated at 300 amps AND the big3 wires are more then 4 feet, there is no need to upgrade. A 4ga wire can hold 250 amps at 4 feet, just to give you some perspective. 

The build is loOking good btw!

They make an adjustable upper control arm for most vehicles, that you can use to raise it back up if you need a more cost effective approach.
