Thank you so much! This was totally awesome. I followed your directions (and measurements- perfect!). It was so easy- went to home depot, had them trim me a piece of plywood 45x19, cut in a notch for the back (didn't need console notches), rounded off the edges, covered it with gray rug and had it all done in 2 hours. Pretty fast for me.
I hope you really do patent it! Thanks so much.

Speaker boxes are very sturdy. When I had my 93 extended cab, people used to always sit on my speakerbox when my front seat was full and they didnt want to ride in the bed. Think the biggest person to sit on it was 150ish lbs...It housed a 12" sub....if that matters.

My Golden might like to ride with me more often with an addition like this. I'll have to take a shot at it as well. I am going to be building a center console, so I will have to modify it a little, but if it gets her to go with me more often it will be great.

If you cut out a slot to put a water bowl....That would be epic. Like a doggy cupholder.

On my 92 extended cab theres notches formed into the plastic where the driver and pass seatr belt are, thers also a 'ledge' along the back of the cab where some sort of shelf would slide into place then drop into these notches, any idea what its for or what goes there?

This is a great idea! Now i feel stupid for taking out my backseats, and i already bought and cut the plywood that I am going to use to build a storage box back there.

Well, I had posted photos of the process and also of the measurements. I still have all that somewhere so will find it and add it here again. I have the platform here still even though my Sam has passed on into dog heaven. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you a photo of the template with all of the measurements.
