Flat Load Rear seats on Crew Cabs
About to upgrade my F-150 to F-350 Diesel. Most likely a 2012. Came across the rear seat flat load option like pictured in an older model and on a new F-150 and neither Ford nor local dealers can answer my question. I believe my research shows that this is now standard to only get the storage boxes or subwoofer on the rear seats. Trying to find out if this took affect when the engine change started in 2011. I have a 210 lb dog that would need that space and in its current configuration, I can remove storage boxes and/or subwoofer but the three pieces of steel framing which supports are attached to the seats. Is there a way to retrofit the flat loading storage grates into the newer system, (does it bolt on to the existing frame pieces when storage boxes are removed and therefore hides them) when was the last year they put this in the F-350 as an option? Any help and advice is welcomed. In the end, may just have to tape up the steel with some padding and the dog can figure it out when he lays down.
