Another Remove Rear Seats Custom

Okay so steve47 back in the day did something real cool to his KC. It inspired me to do something similar. It is stickied by the way but I linked it below too.

With this thread I hope to document my process and progress.

Also I will show how to take the rear apart step by step for those that need the guidance or inspiration. It took about an hour only because I stopped to get pictures every step and I had to clean out the back of my truck. So if starting fresh and clean and no pictures I would say 30 minutes to get it stripped down.

Today I began taking things apart. I will be adding a sound liner that I ordered from Amazon cheap. I will link to it later.

Tools needed so far:

Interior trim removal tools
Rachet
14mm socket
10mm socket

On to pictures.

First picture is the sound mat and second is the starting point. I already removed my boosters.

Next I removed the the back rest using a 10mm socket. Only one bolt per rest and the tops slide up.

First picture is the bolt. The bolts on the floor are for the booster and were 14mm.

Second picture is the back removed. Notice the black clips. These slide down into the slots on the panel.

Next remove the retainer plugs that are behind the back rest. The left is removed and the right is still in place. It is a lighter grey.

Next remove the pop outs that hide the tie down point for baby seats. I think that is the purpose. I do not have kids. There is one on each side in my 2015 Desert Runner KC.

Then the sleeves that hold the headrest in place. These were slightly tricky. Notice the nub on the split shaft. Turn the sleeve so you are pushing on the side that has the nub and they slide right out.

What I did next was remove the bottom bolts for the seat belts from the floor to get them out of the way to remove the back panel. Also be sure to remove the jack for clearance and a place to grab ahold of to pull the panel off.

These bolts are 14mm.

Then begin pulling straight out on the panel. It is important to pull straight out. Otherwise you can damage the clips or bend them like I did. I am not overly concerned though. Some broke and I am going to the auto store to get a forked interior pry bar to remove the remaining clips so I can install the mat/liner. Notice the orange things still on the back wall.

Next I removed the tie down points. Two 10mm and two 14mm bolts each.

I was slightly disappointed that the jack mount is welded in place. But I came up with a plan. I will cut a space from my back panel and use a molle water pouch bag to cover the Jack and mount.

I plan to keep the seat belts in place to use as possible tie downs for bulkier items like my guitar amps.

That is it so far. I will post more when I begin installing the sound deadening liner.

So far I added two panels of the sound barrier.

Upon opening the box I was perplexed by the fact that the sound barrier was in panels.

After installing two, I certainly know why. They are a PITA to install.

Using the roller and my knuckles I got the mat into the grooves and even cut the foil a bit into the tar but that is why I got the seal tape.

I will keep trucking. I am not covering the whole back panel just a couple more around the vents where the noise comes from. Not sure how much it will help but I have other plans for how I will hide the vents and reduce some noise.

Alrighty now. Added the last bit of mat for now and sealed the edges. Time to measure for the mdf back wall and go get carpeting. I will deaden the floor later when I decide how I am building the subfloor.

I have other obligations tomorrow This mod will pick back up either later tomorrow, this week, or next weekend. I plan to provide all measurements and design for anyone wanting to mirror or use my mod as a baseline for theirs.

So I plan to get the mdf cut and in place today. I have not found a carpet I really want yet. I want this to be personalized a little. Still trying to figure out how to do so in a classy clean and badace way.

Of course projects have started to build up throughout the week. I still need to install my rearview mirror backup camera. I also have a new fishing pole mount project for the underside of my tonneau. I will link the threads when I start.

Obligatory picture of mdf board.

First two cuts.

The guy at Lowe's shorted the 48 inch side a little when he cut it for me. I had a 49x47.75 piece to start. I cut it down to 48x24.

Also here are my measurements.

Drilled holes for the larger bolts. Only using the two to mount it since it will be resting on the floor as well.

I also painted one side. It is drying now.
