Very nice! That wood looks like high quality. Stain and poly could make it look like a piece of furniture.

It was from home depot and surprising on of the cheapest only paid $15 for a 4x8 sheet. Wanted something real sturdy for my 80lbs dogs. Ha ha and I'm thinking it would look pretty awesome stained also but want something soft and slip free for the dogs

That is a Great idea and see this is a older thread that was reborn for you guys that did this how are you holding up the seat bottom? Are you removing it or do you tie it off? I may have to do this I have a 2015 Quad cab bench seat

Are you talking about lifting the actual seat or how to lift the FFF to access the storage compartments?

I am talking about just the bottom bench seat~ I have lifted it up to store some straps etc / and did not try to see if it stay up on its own.. Right now it is 6* outside so not going to try it today :O I would like to know that if I did this to be sure bench would not fall down or if I have to remove it.. Anyone here still have a PDF file ?

It stays up on its own. And I didn't use the PDF on here so I can't help you there. I actually just copied the OEM floor and modded it to fit.

I had some black vinyl from a previous project and black latex paint that is not included in the final cost. All parts came from Home Depot. The drawing shows part numbers and store location for my near by store so I would not have to search for the parts.

Here are some photos and a JPG of the AutoCad drawing.

The drawing. I have a PDF file but can't put it on Photo Bucket. The little strip at the back will have a couple of sheet metal brackets to fasten to the rear seat bolts. Right now i put strips of hook Velcro to keep it from moving around.


Floor stored with seat down.


Seat up with support leg folded.

Lifted to access under seat storage.

This is awesome exactly what I am looking to do, would there be any chance you could send me some bigger picture of the measurements if not too much trouble? [email protected] thanks and nice work!

Ignore the mess back there. My German Shepherd is constantly out doors with me in the mud and dirt, and he brings it all in with him (one of the reasons i needed this)
So i love this thing, bought a 15 dollar rug from HD and used contact cement to apply it to the wood, then used latex paint for the rest, i used spray paint for the hinges. I haven't made a bracket to secure it to the seat yet though. One thing i would change if i were to do it over is i would move the cup holder cutout back towards the back seat side of the FFF and push the whole FFF fowards towards the front seat, because as you can see with the current dimensions i have, i can not angle the FFF up with the seat all the way. I get about a 45 degree angle, this is because of the back of it, where it hinges to the seat, is to far back behind the back seat and FFF hits the bottom of the seat befor i can lay it flat with the underneath of the seat properly like a factory FFF, and then i would have to hold it up while putting things underneath, unlike how this others guys FFF can swing up and down alomg with the bench seat fine with no problems because his back hinges are in line with the bottom of the seat perfectly. But then if you do that, i dont think you could get the same width(from back seat to front seat) to the seats with it as i do now. If you make it any wider it is difficult to unfold it out without hitting your front seats (while fromt seat are in a comfortable position) so if it was wider you would have to move the front seats up and out of the way to fully unfold the FFF then move the front seats back to your normal position once its fully folded out. I dont post much on forums, sorry if my explanations dont make any sense. I tried to be very specific with it so i didnt confuse anyone, but i may have just made it worse haha
