Apologies for the dumb question, but, I just ordered my truck and cannot reference anything myself.

Is the storage under the rear seats in the Crew Cab removable? I only ordered a crew cab because the V6 is no longer available in the Extended Cab. I have no need or want for a rear seat. In my other trucks, I always kept the rear seats folded so my dogs could make more use out of the rear floor.

Looking at the trucks on the dealer lot, it appears that whole section is stamped into the floor? Please tell me I'm wrong.

Yes, It can be removed, or modified. Check this thread out I posted a while ago. I'm not the guy in the video, nor did I have anything to do with it. I just posted it as a helpful bit.

Folded up, I think the rear seat takes up a lot of room. The frame under the seat/plastic storage shell is needed to support the seat in the down position.

Looks like I will likely go with the Goose Gear 60% delete plate. After checking out a truck at the dealer this morning, there’s not a lot of space behind my driver’s position, anyway.

I’ll leave the 40% seat just in case.

Interesting. I haven't seen this before. It would not have met my needs, I have been more likely to need people transport than doggy transport, but an excellent looking installation.

I just trimmed and gutted the factory plastic "box" on the new truck.......might be the best mod ever......so much wasted space with the extra plastic....

Would you mind posting some more pics of how you trimmed the OEM seat tray? I'm wanting to do something similar to mine. I appreciate any additional pics you can share with me.

That is very nicely done.

If I had seen that when I had my Canyon, I would have made that mod. Now you have me wondering about my Silverado. If it wasn't over 100 degrees out there, I would go take a peak with this mod in mind.

(Silverado is a totally different design, but I feel like my OEM Canyon actually had better underseat storage. )

Not the best pic. You can see the cuts, still a bit dirty but you can't really see it and it looks decent from above.

I basically removed the entire rear portion where the plastic tray is. Still mounts nice and secure without the rear piece. Then I cut open the side pieces to open them up, which is a bunch of room.

This plastic cuts super easy with a new hacksaw blade held in the hand. Then I took a new loose razor blade and tried trimming it down....super easy. Hit it with some sandpaper at the end.

I think I would try either one of those vibrating tool or a dremel tool to trim it out. It might not work, the high speed may cause melting.

I have some of these plastic deburring tools from a prior life that work great to clean up cuts.
