    This idea was conveyed to me by Mr. Marv and when I was doing my install I took a few photos. The final goal is to rotate the bar that is pointed down so it's pointed to the front or back.

    I put a Zapco Z150.2 under the passenger seat. 7.5(W) x 3(H) x 13.25(L). It fits perfectly now.

    Remove the seat from the truck.
    Remove the plastic covers on the sides of the seat. There is a combination of clips and screws.
    You'll need a T40. Simply unscrew the ones holding the bar in place. I took the bar completely out.
    Mount the bar back in place so it doesn't hang down into the space under the seat.
    I also relocated the factory plugs under the seat so they didn't hang down.

    Remove screws:

    Underside of plastic, notice where the clips are attached:

    Use the T40 to remove the mounting screws:

    Bar rotated about 90* pointing towards the back of the seat:

    I am going to try this when I have the seat out. I've had an amp on the floorboard for 3+ years because it didn't fit under the pass seat!

    Thanks for this write-up. Went as smooth as silk earlier when I did this. Rotated the bar 90* to make room for the amp I'm planning on putting under there.
