I haven't done my 2010 yet, but I put in a SCS 2X10 box in my 2002 F350 CC and I took the rear seat out to mount the box (and the amps + Eq's). There just wasn't enough room to do the install with the seat in place, IMHO.

2010 F350 CC SWB FX4 loaded... Truxx leveling kit with an Icon adjustable trackbar, 20X10 XD Monsters with BFG 285X65X20 AT KO's, S&B intake, H&S Blackmaxx with DPF/Cat delete and MBRP Cool Duals, SD card full of KEM tunes that sits (unused) in the console. Audio by Focal, Audio Control, and JL Audio...

x2 for seat removal. If the box fits properly then it'll be tough without doing it

How about just putting spacers under the seat brackets and have your speakers sit underneath the seat? I got the boes to fit underneat but kinda having trouble finding a good spacer that will allow better clearance for the sub box. Right now im using big washers, sitting up the seat .5 in., but the front part of the back seat bracket still isnt fully fastened? any ideas for a good spacer

I hate seat lifts! I used to put them into the late 90's f150's. Maybe it's the fact that they raise the seat into the visibility area of the back window or just the fact that it looks like there would be a massive increase in the amount of stress put on the bolts, I don't know but they don't seem safe. With so much space behind the seat are you just considering it so you can run deeper subs? If you are insistant then look online for seat lift brackets. They are basically a piece of c channel iron and new bolts. I've seen them as tall as 4" for the older trucks.

I went with the JL Stealth box. Yeah it costs more but I didn't have to cut out or drill my cab up!

Did you install it yourself?

I ordered a stealthbox, JL XD600/1, and new CXI570s. Also planning to do hushmat on all of the doors / back wall.

When it came down to it, it was either SPL4k or the Stealthbox and I thought I'd rather give up the under seat area than behind the seats.
