OP, I made a little spin on your idea:


I needed to be able to at least maintain some of my rear seat, at least enough to have one person sit in the back so I only use the larger portion of the seat for my dog-transport mod. I also didn't use the hard board. Mine is just indoor/outdoor carpeting cut to fit. The head rests keep it in place on the front and the seat latch and other protrusions keep the carpet in place on the back. I usually put his bed on top of that for longer trips. My behind the seat cubbies are always full so he can lean back against the stuff (tool bags, windshield washer fluid bottle, etc). The good thing about the way I did it, I can roll the carpet back and it stores behind the seat so I can have my full back seat in a matter of seconds, and no plywood to store. Your write-up gave me the inspiration though!

Glad this has helped a few of you!

I changed mine up the other day as well, let's see if I can explain this without pics.

I took apart the back and bottom pieces first. then i took out the cubbies in the back.
I used some washers and extended the seat bracket mounts a bit, so that I can now leave the back piece in, and I can still use the seat. the only thing I need to do now is add carpet tot he back of the seat, so that it's not the slippery plastic.

I'm going to get longer screws and better washers this week, as well as adding the carpet.

just to give her something to lean against, or fall back against if she does fall.

I made one the other day, turned out great! Cost me $70 for all the materials and took me a couple hours, worst thing is everyone I show it off to wants one.

Chad, beautiful looking pups you got there! Is that a beagle mix in the foreground?

Nice puppy platform, by the way. I need to keep this in mind for the future.

Yeah that's a beagle or a beagle mix. He's a great dog, just got him in May, he was at the local shelter. He loves the platform. Before he would go between the front and rear seats but now with the headrest in the way he'll stay in the back and sleep. They love going for drives.

Sub'd!! Great idea! I have a camper shell on my truck but I don't like to make my mutt sit back there on long road trips. I will drop the back seats down but then I have to cover everything with blankets and his bed. I will make one of these as well! Then I can just throw his bed back there. Thanks for sharing!

As a matter of fact, it looks like I'll be doing this right away. This little guy came home with us tonight...

Oh, and I already sectioned off the crate and removed the pee pad. I did my research and realized we were doing it wrong!

I had the day off, so I did my version of this today. I have a family, so giving up the entire back seat just isn't always an option.

I started with the OP's measurements and the tweaked the design to fit my needs. Basically just a two piece set up.





This way I can use either the big or the small side and have room for my Boy and my pooch.


He'll grow into it...


Here's my low budget solution to keep the back from falling. Ran out of time today. I'm going to come up with something better before I actually use this...


I'm going to put this up in the general 2nd Gen forum with a link to the OP's thread. I'm sure there are others who don't look at the garage section who could benefit.

This is a great mod... I don't even have a dog. I bet a couple of carabiners would do the trick vice the bungee cord...

Hey thanks. What's a carabiner?

EDIT: Just googled it. I tried that idea with a spring clip. When you pull the seat forward it turns on the seat catch and pulls through the hole in the plywood. I should've made the holes smaller...
