basically, without something completely custom, with your subs you're out of luck.

Check what your specific speaker needs for cubic feet. But I think your best bet would be to glass your own box. just do it by eye. If it doesn't work, hell, it was a learning experience at least.

I wouldn't know where to look for a wood box, but a FG box would optimize all of the space available.

Don't kid your self trying to fit two full size 12's behind your regular cab seats.
One shallow 12" sub would be tough to fit with a correctly built box.
Because if those subs need between 1.0-4.6 cubic feet, you need to build a box that is at least ~2.0 cubic feet in total, because you need to subtract the 3/4" MDF all around, plus the displacement of the subwoofer in the box.
So already the measurement you have for how much depth available is 1.5" less because of the MDF, and even more because of the subwoofer excursion means you need to have about another 1-1.5" infront of the box for the sub to be safe.

Honestly, you're best off with something like this:
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...o+13TW5-3.html
Which can fit behind with ease, and is easy to make a big enough box. Plus, it's 600RMS, which is only 200 less than the two twelves you were looking at.

behind the seats is your only option. good luck dude, you are going to have absolutely no leg room.

based on the specs for that sub.... you need to build a box like this with the measurements I have put in as a minimum, which would give you 1.53 ft^3 worth of volume (which is a minimum here) and you could stuff it to add a little more (stuffing will make it think its about 15% bigger so you would have around 1.75^3 inside). just get a measuring tape and measure how much room you have to work with... you might not be able to go 10" deep and in that case you will need to make it taller/wider/etc, but remember the sub has a 6 5/8" mount depth and you don't want the back of the sub right up against the back wall.. also these measurements will only work if you use .5 inch MDF board.




here's a link you can play around with in regards to the measurements of the box:
http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxcalcs.asp

also, with a home made box you will not spend more then $80.00 on all of the supplies and you will most likely have some stuff left over

^That will NOT fit behind a regular cab ranger. And on top of that, the subwoofer displaces about 0.35 -0.45 cubic feet of air, so the enlcosure is still to small. Sean, these subs are not meant at all to be behind a regular cab ranger.
