    This is exactly the idea I've been planning on, but too lazy to get to it yet. Good to see it in action.

    would this work on the under rear seat compartments in a double cab?

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I just clarified a few other write ups and added a few pictures.

    As for the under seat storage, I think it might just!!




    I can not even describe how easy of a mod this is. The only partial snag was trying to bend the locking bar/tab so it did not rattle. When I said 20 minutes that was taking my time and taking pictures.

    I had done this for the bed boxes before and also did the storage under the jumpseats in my access cab. Pretty much the exact same process. It doesn't make them super secure but it's a little peace of mind. Good job on the write-up.

    Awesome, I was actually thinking about this the other day to open up more room under the seats but I didn't feel comfortable leaving anything in essentially open compartments. Went out and bought everything today including some weatherstripping to keep it a little drier inside...hopefully.

    Thank you. I couldn't make sense of the previous ones I had read. Any pics of which way the drill goes into the plate?

    Thank you...

    The drill actually goes from both sides. Its a tapered bit meaning when you start to drill the 3/4 size it will drill a conical hole so you have to flip the panel and drill the opposite side to 3/4 as well.

    It does not matter what side you start with just drill, flip and drill again :D

    For me it was very simple actually. In Tampa, the WONDERFUL place that I live its quite common to have people just take whatever they want anytime they wish. I keep my motorcycle tie down straps (about $80.00 worth) and I decided a little extra security could not hurt.

    Glad that question needed a BOLD WTF, to each their own I guess... ;)
