Built a platform for the rear jump seats of my access cab!

    I have an 09 and wish i had the rear seats that fold flat, mainly because my dog who is about 40 lbs has a hard time riding back there. Also makes a good flat base for tool boxes, guns, etc etc.

    A few 2x4's some 1/2 inch plywood, walmart black automotive carpet, staple gun and 3M 77 spray!

    Just thought I'd share for people looking for a similar idea. I think i saw a thread a while ago about another dog owner asking about AC platforms:

    Will post pics of my dog using it soon!

    Nice too cause you can put stuff underneath the shelf and nobody can see it (guns, etc.)

    Excellent job.
    How do you have the shelf fastened so it doesn't move around?
    Is it connected to the truck somehow, or just relying on the weight of whatever happens to be on the shelf to hold it in place?
    I was thinking about doing something like this for my A/C also.

    thats what i really like about the 05-08s Access cabs they have the fold down rear seats, really wanted an 09 or 2010 model but the simplicity of not liking the rear seat is what really made me decide on keeping my 06'

    It is long enought so that it fits snug up against each AC door, and against the back of the front seat. Even if the front seats are slid forward it also rest ontop of the rear AC seats, so it stays right in place.

    I can get some dimensions if anyone is interested?

    Is it a 'quick removal' type of affair?

    Nothing major or fancy. Just stuff to make it work better for me.
    That looks good! How did you get the headrests out? If you could post some dimensions I'd like to put that in my AC.

    That looks pretty good. Well thought out, and well executed.
