Replacing 3rd row seat with a Storage Box

I am starting a new thread to give all of the details for building a locking aluminum storage box to replace the third row seat.

I got a PM from 4.7 and hopefully I think he may build these for us.

Removing the third row seat is fairly simple and is covered in another thread on this forum. It basically unbolts from the floor. I am not claiming credit for this modification, someone did it last year. What I did do was to have the fellows at our plant do a professional job if executing the design to fit my needs. The first picture is of the area that is available after you remove the third row seat.



this picture shows the bolt hole that will be used to secure the box to the floor to prevent removing it.

The next picture shows the storage box open with lots of trail supplies, parts, and tools.



This picture shows the storage box closed and covered with carpet held down by velcro.

All of these items were actually stored in the box. It has approximately 12,000 cubic inches of space within the box.



This picture shows the box still in the Commander but empty.



This picture shows the location of the bolt that holds down the box and screws into the bolt hole in the floor.

The storage box can be lifted out by one person when empty and it has enough room to tilt up and then slide out the back of the Commander.

The second picture shows the carpet pulled back from the top of the lid to show the hinge.

This group shows the inflatable bed that I keep in the storage box. It
is the blue material in the picture of all the contents of the box. It has its own inflator pump and inflates in about 30 seconds.

By the way, The air compressor kit will fit in the storage box. I am not going to keep it there because I have all the other stuff and because I want it handy to use.
