    So I'm going to mount an inverter under my passenger seat in my 01 tacoma xtra cab (yes I have considered the heat, etc...) but I can't quite be sure what's underneath the carpet under my passenger seat, I've looked at the haynes manual and felt around but short of pulling up the carpet I'm not sure exactly what I'm dealing with.

    Would it be safe to screw a couple of short self tapping sheet metal screws into the floor there? Or do you think there's a better option for a sturdy mount for the inverter?

    i used 4 regular drywall screws to install my amp under the passenger side of my bench seat in my reg cab. As far as i can remember from routing the wires around under the carpet, there isnt anything between the carpet and floor pan. Any screws should work perfectly fine.

    Four regular drywall screws... sounds like a plan, I didn't think anything would be under there, but just wanted to be sure.

    When I mounted my audio amplifiers under my seats, I just checked underneath the truck to make sure the screw wouldn't poke through anything important underneath.
