    So I have had a bunch of issues with the way the back seat is set up. I have a german shepherd and there is no where for his 80 pound @*% to be. Every corner i hit he is bouncing around between the jump seats and the floor.:eek:

    Not any more. I found the perfect $18 dollar fix. :D

    Particle board. 2ft W 4ft L
    Roll of carpet ( colored to your liking) 2.5 ft w 4.5 L
    Last but not least a staple gun and a hammer to make the staples flush.

    You have to cut a little bit of the wood to compensate for the middle console and an inch off of one of the sides to make a perfect fit.

    make sure the wood piece fits perfectly into place. and then wrap carpet around and staple onto the bottom of board.

    I use a tool box and a couple of chairs and a shovel to even out the jump seats to the floor board. More cargo space and flatter back seat.:)

    My dog now has a perfect 2 by 4 platform to travel on. no more getting tossed around. I can just about lay down on it.:p

    Looks really clean! Might want to add some legs in the front and corners and center for stability, just a thought

    yeah definitely some legs would make it much sturdier, and that was my initial plan. When I put things that i frequently use underneath it as support I was satisfied. ..... or maybe i just got lazy. haha =)

    That is a good idea! Mine is far from permanent. It only weighs like 8 lbs, so I figure I can just take it out when I need to get to things, or add some passengers other than my dog. haha

    I've been thinking of doing something similar for my truck for when I need to pack for a trip...never fails that things slide off of the seats and make it impossible to get the seats forward and back without running into something. I have the 60/40 bench though so mine would be slightly different.
