    So real easy one here.

    How to you actually remove the Factory Storage Trays from Behind the Rear Seats in a Dbl Cab?

    I know they have to go in order to get a box to fit in there.

    Also, The Child Seat Clips the are in the Seat, You know the Ones that are in the crease of the Seat and allow you to Clip in the Newer style Child Seats. Will I lose them once I put a box there or will they stay? I 'm just thinking ahead here and maybe starting a family soon and I don't want to shoot myself in the foot by doing this.

    I'm progressing nicely in my Audio System upgrade, I've already got the Speakers all upgraded to Infinity Speakers and I just bought the Pioneer FH-P8000BT yesterday. So Subs are next on my list.

    1. The driver's side comes off first, it lips over the passenger side.
    2. Take out the bolts
    3. The bottom portion has those pop tab things. They are easy to break, so don't feel too bad when you lose them :(. They can slip off if you slide the tray to the... left I think... but good luck in doing that.
    Picture with passenger side removed. The white things are the tabs in step 3.

    Nevermind those amps, they were just there for some measurements.

    Forgot to mention, removing the child seat things depends on your setup. If I remember right, the box Mr. Marv is building for me requires that I remove only one child seat thing, which I can weld on later if I ever needed it again.

    For my box, I cut out all of the child restraint things with a dremel. Necessary or not, it took all of 20 minutes and I can always pop them back in later.

    Still, it is nice to not have to mess with it. Some manufacturers make boxes with no cutting required. I believe supercrew sound is one of them.

    I would STRONGLY recommend Mr.Marv if you're looking for a custom fit box. He can make anything you want.
