  1. how on earth did you get the seat bolts off? I nearly rounded the bolts and they would not budge!!

  2. try using a 6 sided socket as opposed to a 12 and, use a big 1/2″ ratchet as opposed to a small 3/8″. the bolts have blue loc-tite on them and the extra leverage will help you out a lot.

  3. On my 2012 JKU I had to remove a big piece of metal underneath the seat which was a bracket to hold a wiring harness. I do NOT have side airbags so the wires were not for that. It turned what should have been a 10 minute install into a 30 minute sweat filled ordeal with some busted knuckles.

  4. I have a 2011 wrangler unlimited and are considering this project. My question concerns a thin metal bracket under the seat, located on the left rail. I beleive it’s for the seat belt sensor harness. Do I need to remove this or will the box clesr it. If I need to remove it, is there alot involved as I didn’t really see how it is attached ? Thank you in advance !!!!!

  5. How in the world does the slide system work in trying to reinstall the drawer? The unit is completely installed, but try as I might, the drawer hits a solid spot halfway back, and even if I push the little plastic keepers up, the drawer hits what feels and sounds like a metallic stop. I can’t seem to find what is stopping it.
    Help!!

  6. Quick question about this product:
    Is the inside of this thing at all padded? I worry if things I put in will rattle a lot or even slide around. Also, does the drawer itself rattle around at all on it’s tracks when driving? Is it pretty sturdy? I’m a huge stickler for interior noise. I worry that this will introduce noise as I drive. Thanks!

  7. The inside is bare metal. I lined mine with some rubber liner and rolled it on with silcone.

    If you want to avoid rattle, consider attaching it using the security bolt method, even though you’ll have to drill into the body.
