Added a sub, but need to take out the cab vent

Hey guys, quick question, I cut out the back liner last night to get my box up against the back wall but I need to get the cab vent out and cover it. It presses from the inside out, but it is thicker than the gap between the bed and cab. You guys that have done this, did you just cut it out from the inside and then let the back part drop out? It seems like the only logical way.

TIA, i'd like to get this done tonight so I can bolt my seat back in.

Everything I've read says do not remove them... Rain will get in and if they are sealed there will be pressure problems.

I cut mine out and duct taped them shut.... there is a little pressure problem, but nothing that is that big a deal. On reg AC you get some extra pressure on your ears.

Well you have to look at it this way.....Is your truck just off the showroom floor. If not and reading this there is alot of older trucks.....then you wont have any kind of pressure problems...mmccraney, think your truck is 5years old, think your door seals are perfect. Did mine yesturday and had several friends do this...no problems. Just cut them out then duck tape and if you are worried about water then tape, silicon, and self-drill a sheet of metal to cover it.

If you plug or eliminate the vents in the back of the cab you can cause drivability issues with your truck. The baro sensor is located under your dash. The increase in pressure can and has been known to cause issues.
