Regular Cab Storage Bins (Behind Bench Seat)

I have owned my truck for five years now, and I have always had issues with storing stuff behind my bench seat. It always slides down and comes out underneath my feet and seat. Yesterday I decided to make some storage bins out of some old/used 1" pine lumber I had laying around. I built them so they attach to the threaded sheet metal behind the seat using 12/24 bolts from the hardware store. It would have been better to use 1/2 plywood to gain greater storage volume, but the nominal 1" lumber I used has exact dimensions of 3/4", so it was not that bad. I framed the bins to lay flat against the back of the cab to support them and gain the greatest volume within the bins. Lastly I sprayed them with cheap black spray paint to seal them. Tell me what you guys think. These are nothing fancy, just practical and basically free for me to make.

Thanks.

Thanks guys. If you do make these, just make sure that you clear the seat back when it is all the way back (duh), and also make sure that the bins are far enough towards the center of the vehicle that the levers that move the seat back forward can be lifted while the seat is all the way back.

Good job! I really need to do something like this. I'm tired of my stuff sliding under the seat too.

Hey no problem. I hope it helps you out! I wish that I could work with sheet metal. All I have is an aluminum break, and I definitely do not know how to weld. Looks good though!
