|rd3i||I realized that if I simply pull hard on the seat back when lowering it will lock in place - even with my quadratec mat in place. I no longer consider this an issue and I'll just use extra muscle when unfolding the seat.|

I don't have a back seat or carpet in mine but I need this mod for my dog.
She falls down behind the seats all the time.

What I'm getting at is, does anyone know which part of the Quadratec liner is preventing the rear seat in a JK from locking? I'd hate to start cutting away at the liner and guessing at which would be the correct cut.

|connorcrush||I'll be doing this so my dogs stop sliding down there when I have them in the back, I'm afraid if I press the brakes they'll fall and get hurt. Plus it's great storage! Great job|

I like the little black hole down there. If I ever get in an emergency situation, I know I can fins all sorts of useful items!
but really, will probably be doing this!
|02-13-2013 01:15 PM|
If you had only posted exacting dimensions for those of us who are often incredibly lazy!
Definite on the to-do list. I hate when everything falls down under the seats.

|igivup||Yes JK Coaster, I just have to lift up on one side of the false floor and it pulls right out.|

Just keep in mind on the Quadratech- I have one of those cranky rear seats in my 2012 2 door. It doesn't like to stay forward- and it also doesn't like to lock back in. Especially with the Quadratech liner. I only use it with the seat out now. In which case I wish I didn't have holes cut out. (Fur trap).
Won't apply to everyone but FYI.

I started out my project thinking I would just paint bed liner over the wood, then saw the black carpet at Home Depot for only $ .45 sq/ft, so just bought that because it was so cheap. If I had it to do over I would have looked around to better matched the black since finding a match to the OEM factory carpet probably wouldn't be that hard. The belting you used is another great idea.

|igivup||I had a similar idea for that space,with the option to store soft top windows as well. The 3-4" of height are never really missed, and I still have all my floor space, and access to tool storage and jack. I simply used piano hinge on the two sections I wanted to be able to lift up, and used some rubber belting I had around my garage for covering it up.|

|cyclone88||This was a slick idea - just did the same over the weekend! Used a couple lengths of 1x4 with 2x4 blocking underneath to hold them together and prop it up level. Definitely a great place to store smaller items out of sight, itching to get the hard top off and Trektop installed now!|

Great idea ! One of the first things I did after purchase was to pull the rear seat out...
The liner makes it blend in even better, looks like there are cut-outs for the seat attach points which make great tie down rings...

|GunToter||Funny, I was thinking of something along the same lines. I keep some wet weather gear under the driver's seat, today while I had my doors off for the first time going down the highway I noticed the wind would try to steal my wet weather gear. I thought I'd rig up something similar to what you did. Nice job.|
|02-05-2013 05:07 PM|
All the metal apparatus under the seat stays put. Only the seat slides within the track, so nothing hangs up, as long as I keep the gear under 6 or 7 inches in height.

It's on my list for my next order with Q-Tec. I like the fact that if I decide to put the rear seat back in, I can cut out holes in the mat so the seat can connect.

Scroll down to post #6 of this thread to see his pic and pn info link.
Also if you do a search on this Forum under Quadratec Cargo Liners there are lots of threads with opinions on the cargo liners from various suppliers.
I made my shelf from 10 inch wide shelf stock. You can see from the photos this means it sits up out of the footwell flush up agains the Quadratec cargo liner, one inch higher than the rest of the Jeep cargo floor. If someone wanted to have the shelf lower, flush with the rest of the Jeep floor, they could use 8 inch shelf stock. The shelf is supported in front by the drink holder, but requires about a one inch spacer if you want the shelf flush with the rest of the floor and two inch if you want it like mine. You can see the spacer (a smaller piece of shelf) under the carpet in pic 3.

What model/size is the Q-Tec cargo liner? I too have the rear seat permanently removed and I never knew what size liner to get.

Cheap Hidden Cargo area for Two door JKs
After removing my rear seat in my JK I noticed that gear would slide/drop forward into the footwell behind my front seats if my wife and I traded seats and she slid the front seat forward to drive. When I drove, sometimes a gear rearrange would be necessary to get the seat back.
Solution....a cheap shelf board and some black carpet from Home Depot. The photos below show:
Pic one shows when the seat is all the way forward it reveals a lot space both under the seat and in the footwell. The seat slides over some of this space when slid back, but the usable space is still there since only the seat slides.
Pic two shows the wooden shelf cut to fit(when the seats are all the way back).
Pic three shows the shelf carpeted.
Pic four shows the shelf installed. It take three seconds to uninstall by just lifting it out.
Pic five shows what someone looking into my rig would see. The cargo liner is Quadratec.
We do a lot of expedition wheeling in the desert and like to keep our extra water low in the vehicle. In this space we can easily store 4 one gallon jugs plus emergency food for a week for two plus other stuff. Access is easily gained by just sliding the seats forward. Originally I though I would remove the shelf after every trip since I remove this gear for daily driving, but now I see that it pretty much looks like the floor of the Jeep so I leave it in as a sort of hidden storage area. It doesn’t lock, but in my hardtop what I am really looking for is to keep valuables (purses, laptops) out of sight. Total cost - Under $20.00.
