    After installing last of the aftermarket accessories on the new truck, i quickly knocked together this pine and bbply fully knock down under rear seat storage box.

    As those of you with a truck will know their aint no trunk and while the crewcab has loads of floor space, it does not stop things like emergency items or groceries from rolling around.

    Was determined to get this done in a hurry and use what was on hand and be cheap. Had to purchase the corner brackets from LV they in the bed hardware section if anyone is interested.

    I just pile stuff in the back seat area until it gets too full.

    My 'back seat' is really too small for anyone but dogs or small children.

    I really like this idea. I might have to see if I can copy it.

    Looks good, Rob.

    As an aside, I used to have a sun-woofer in my truck, but it was too bright.

    Nice solution Rob. My last pickup had something similar, though it had fold down seats to make a platform, so I ended up removing them as I used it more and couldn't fold them down with them in place.

    My Woofer sits on the passenger seat, and barks at dogs going by.

    Why did you use brackets instead of just pocket screwing it together, or dado's and glue?
    On a crewcab, does the backseat lift up like the extended cabs, or do you pull the box out/forward?
