SuperCab Sub box

Hey guys i know that having super/ext. cab can be a pain to put a sub box in, but i have funally solved my problem. I went to the local welding store bought 2x2" square tubing and cut it into peices about 2.5inches long. I then drilled holes in these and bought longer bolts (12mmX100 mm) and used these to hold the seats to the floor. it looks like this
this is the middle one -

this is the one behind the back of the seat in the middle
and these are the front edges

ok so now this solves the problem that the seats are to shallow (cant hold a sub underneath) then i built this box. I kept it out of the way of the jack, and could've built it for more storage space but i have a tool box for that i just keep my tow strap and some paper towels (fastfood at work). but it is nice i can put up dimensions later if you want. this is what the box looks like.



the sub is a 10 inch but it could be made to hold a 12(just make everything bigger) but the storage is actually pretty big. The sub sits about mid way underneath the bigger seat.

Hope this helps some of the ext. cab people because i know i to hell and back to find a way to get to work. and sorry for crappy pics they were cellphone pics.

Looks good. Only problem I see is that you didnt use MDF and it doesnt look liek you sealed the dges. Box most like is gonna leak. Whats going in the big square opening the amp? Hopefully you selaed the sub inclosure from where the amp incolure is or its really going to leak bad.

Yea def without a doubt. You can fit 2 10's without lifitng the back seat as well. You just got to run shallow mount subs. Witht hat size box he can probabaly hit 2 12's easy

Their rear seats are like a "60/40" design. The bottom is 2 separate pieces where as us 99 guys have a 1 piece seat bottom

umm. you could maybe run 12's but the box would have to extend out past the front of the seat. I didnt wanna run shallow mount because i had this one from my mustang, and loved the sound.

No im getting it covered with rhino lining which will seal it more. plus my dad used to build big sub boxes for concert he said all they ever used was plywood. plus the whole inside is sealed, you just can't tell, trust me it is. the square box is just for storage, i have my amp mounted under my passenger seat. every thing is sealed 2 times over, my dad is a perfectionist and my job just wouldnt do! haha
