2017 F150 Cencom Core install. Where to mount?

So I'll be doing a core based install soon in a 17 F150. The only thing I'm stuck on at the moment is where to mount the core and associated wiring. I'm thinking behind the rear seat but I haven't opened it up yet.

Anyone have any insight on locations?

I'm not currently planning on putting a Havis console in, so mounting everything in the console is not currently an option.

I usually make a box that fits under the rear seat. This was a 20 Silverado.

This was an F-150, but I think it was a 2010.

I was thinking under the seat as well but was debating keeping that open so that the rear seats could be folded up for storage use. But keeping that idea open as well.

From my experience most pickups have very minimal options for installations. Some may have space behind the second seats on the back wall but under the second seats is consistently the most straight forward when doing an entire upfit.

If ur worried about cargo space a cover for the bed maybe a better option.

Behind the back seat on the rear wall is our go to. The latch is a bit tricky to unlock. It's out of the way and you can still fold the seats up of you need to load the inside down.

Do you happen to have any photos/tips on attaching a mounting plate to the rear wall?

We are working with Troy to have this plate mass produced. It was scrap from something laying around the shop, allows fewer penetrations in the rear wall and fit perfectly.
We've done several with the equipment mounted directly to the body. When doing this put a dab of silicone on the metal before using a self drilling screw to prevent water intrusion.

Try under your back seat the bottom lift up. I had a 2017 F150 and I had my radio box , siren box and a fuse panel mount there
