Rear seat mod to fit bigger sub box

I am posting this since I was asked a couple of times how I made my sub box fit into my truck . I didn't take any pics during the modification but it's really simple . You just turn the upper seat brackets around . Then install a spacer double the thickness of the factory spacer at the opposite end (toward back of truck) I also drilled new holes in my lower brackets as far forward as I could to get another inch or so forward . In the end the seat is about 2" further forward . I had a friend of mine who is about 6'4 sit in the back after the mod and he said it didn't feel too much different then his (he has the same truck) . Hear are some pics I took after the mod was done . If anyone has any questions let me know .

looks awsome man. i have the same exact subs. there great. i swapped my brackets at first to fit mine behind the seat but i fount it was harder than hell to get your feet in the truck. so. i flipped my brackets back to factory and then just drilled the holes 1 inch further which gave me enough room for the subs but yet keep my foot room back there. i dont have a sweet amp rack like you tho

Yea it definitely cut down the walkway area getting into the truck but it's not to bad . There is 6.5 " between the front of the seat and the center pillar . As far as the room behind the seat I have a full 10" at the bottom and 6" at the top and this is with the carpeted panel still in place . The amp rack is a really easy piece to make . Also I turned the drivers side sub the right way too . It was a very late night when I put it in that way .
