After, I moved the jack into the center console for more room under the seat.

I like it. Very clean. And that's a nice touch with the F-150 badge. Good work.

That looks great! I used to have full storage with dividers underneath my rear seats. I cut 2/3 of it off and I now store a 12" sub and amp under the driver side rear and my jack and a few tools under the passenger rear in my Sscrew.

Was it a bought one or a DIY one, can you post a pic of how it is/was so i can get some ideas for dividers.

Looks good! I want to do the same thing. I'm sick-and-tired of readjusting all my crap under there after people get in and out of the back seat.

Good job!

After looking at multiple threads on this decided to make my own
I only had a junk piece of 1x8 but this will last me until I find a decent 1x8
I can use this as a template for the final setup
I cut the front pc 1st, a little long, then make marks once it was in place to cut each side shorter
How long this PC is will be based on if you want the box to stick out a little beyond the seat on each side, & how you attach it
My front PC ended up being 54" long....2.5" deep cut out in the middle for the hump
Cut starts approx 17.5" in from each side
I eyeballed it from above & made pencil marks where to cut

Driver side Pc is 4 3/4" wide, It goes from 7.5" down to just under 7" for the slope
NOTE: Newer 1x8's are usually only 7 1/4" instead of the 7.5" that I have
Passenger side Pc is 5" wide, same sloped cut

I probably won't paint/cover this as its Temp
We get all sorts of scrap wood so I'm just going to wait until I come across a new 1x8
I had the brackets & screws....Total cost Zero....and looks like it

No back, just something to hold stuff under the seat
I have some massive heavy duty jumper cables under there....pushes the box out
I know I have other jumpers so I'm going to put a different set of jumpers under the seat
The other pair will go in the garage, need to check the wife's SUV & see if she has a set
...or room for a set.....she crams more crap into the SUV & just leaves it there all the time








Pics are from before the sides were attached
I just pushed them into place to see how they fit



Now I need to find the jack hold down screw & the bar holder & put the jack back in place....so it won't rattle & annoy me
