Equipment Platform

I am wanting to ask the group how everyone is mounting their equipment under seats or any other locations.

My vehicle is a 2017 Ford F-150 and thinking about running all the equipment and wires under the backseat.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I can’t say for the exact year that you are referring to on your vehicle, but on a 2019 F150 there is a decent amount of space to run wires from the engine compartment through the firewall and underneath the plastic step guard on the front and rear door areas. I popped mine off and ran at least 4 to 5 different wires through there. Takes a little bit of manoeuvring to pop out the rear plastic covering where the rear seatbelts are, but if you do then wires could be fairly invisible from the cabin and pop up in back of the rear seat.

My plan (once I assemble the various parts) is to install a jump (center) seat with the console in the back of the seat and then convert the under-seat storage area to an equipment space that will be blocked off to prevent the usual under-the-seat crud from finding its way inside. It'll be a shorter run to the firewall.

What are you using as the mounting surface under the backseat? Are you laying everything straight on top of the carpet surface? Or do you have a "panel" material to screw to? Thanks.

When I had my 2017 Ford F150 I had my siren , radio and fuse block mount under my rear seat I used velcro it to the rag.
