DU HA install.....

I'm gonna be removing that steel contraption under the rear seats and getting a DU HA here pretty soon. If any of you have one already, could you answer a couple questions for me? Does it just slip in or is it actually bolted down or secured in some way?
Secondly, I'm going to get it in black, but I wanted to cover the front and sides of the DUHA with some carpeting so that it blends in a little better with the black carpeting already in the truck. What sort of adhesive would you all recommend I use? I was thinking about using some of that black outdoor carpeting that you can find and the home improvement stores. I used some to cover the floor of an old 69 VW bus I had. It looked sharp and worked really well, plus was quite durable.

Thanks.

Robert

This thing is actually pretty cool. I have never seen one before. My truck looks like the one in the picture in the link with all that crap all over the back floor. Post some feedback after you get in put in. I think I am gonna buy one of these.

I have the one for the extended cab installed in my 03. Put it in like 8 months ago works out great if you carry guns like in the pics (I do) get the lock kit and you're legal for holding them in states that require that. Mine bolted to the floor board using some of the seatbelt and jack holder screw.

Last night I started to put in some stuff I had taken out of my old truck. I could not find a place to put the tow strap or anything else. No room under the driver or pasenger seats and that metal rack under the rear seats is pretty much worthless to me. I'd just like a place to put the tow strap, emergency kit, jumper cables, my pistol when I take it out to the range, and just basic stuff. This DUHA would be perfect and keeps stuff from sliding back out from under the seats. Good to know it can be bolted down. Thanks!!

The only bad thing is that the DU HA for the crew cabs don't go under the seat they go behind the seat like the regular cabs. So if you have the factory sub or aftermarket subs, it's not going to work out. I had one on order until i realized that small problem.

This is from the du ha website.
"The 2008 Ford F-250 thru F-550 Super Duty Crew Cab model is designed to fit behind your pre-existing back seat."

I don't understand why they dont have one for the under seat application.
