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.

The load floors from 2008 and up will work. I just did this on my 2012. I found someone in the classified section on here to buy one from. There are six bolts that hold down the storage boxes and these same six bolts bolt the fold flat tray directly to the same holes. Its an even swap. There is an "extra" bracket on the load floor I got (not sure if it is the same on all of them) but it doesn't bother me. When the seats are down or the load floor is extended, you never see it. Good luck on your search. Don't try to buy one from Ford. They want over $700 bucks for a new one.

For that extra bracket there's a hole under the carpet to hold another bolt. You just have to make a small cut in the carpet to expose it. That bolt wasn't needed for the storage box but they preserved the prior fitting that served both the load floor and the box.
