    Bought a used 2013 Quad Cab, and the guy who owned it before must have taken the fold flat floor out since the mounting hardware was still in it. Not wanting to pay 300 bucks for a new one, the plans here inspired me. However, I have the 60/40 rear seats so I had to redesign the plans to work for me. Floor is 1/2 MDF, legs 1/4. I'm starting the build tomorrow. I have dimensional layouts with measurements if anyone is interested.

    Those were done in Sketchup. I got the driver's side all carpeted and installed. Looks and works great, although I learned I'm not too good in upholstery work. Doing the passenger side tonight. I'll put up pics when it's all done.

    Fold Flat Floor

    Clifford15,

    Nice job on the floor! Could I get the PDF for your design? I've got a 2004 1500 that didn't come with one and I'd like to build one like yours.

    TTT - update.
    Quite a while back I made brackets to secure the DIY FFF. See pic. It is a piece of 1/8" thk X 2 x 6 aluminum. The angle cut is 1.25 x 1.25 x 45* to clear the floor. There are a couple of #8 x 1/2" pan head sheet metal screws to fasten the bracket to the FFF rear strip. The 1/4-20 bolt goes through an existing hole in the seat mount. It is simple but ets the job done. One for each side required. Could also fast the 1/4 screw from the bottom up and use a wing nut for quick removal.
