Default Under seat gun rack and storage

Just got a new to me crew cab. Paid up for the overpriced Weathertech mats and still having buyers remorse. Next I wanted under seat storage. Duhah's, and the other commercial units run $200. Built this one for $25.00.

Is it mounted to the floor or just set in place?

Added some faux leather this week. It is basically bungees in place. Works great

Thought about doing that also but not sure I want to loose the open floor when the seats are up. Also, did you know the the back seats have a hidden latch and can be folded forward. Some good storage behind there as well.

I keep my rifles shotguns in canvas case and put them back behind the seat.

Google it...I drilled a hole in the release pin, threaded through a key ring, and tied a cord that runs up to the post on the head rest for a quick release.

I like it!

Many years ago, I built a removable storage cover and sleeping bed for a 1999 extended cab Chevy. It was held together with pins. My husband, son, and I could pack 5 days of hunting clothes and guns underneath and then one person could sleep on the top part for the 8 hour drive. We got rid of it when we sold the truck, but it was was handy.
