If anyone wants the steel seat risers, my truck had them installed when i bought it, and have since taken them out to gain headroom in the back. Not sure who made them, but they are black and make it near impossible to notice. It took me two years to figure out why I had less headroom in the back than every other F-150. But, if someone wants them, I'll give you a deal on them.

...and damn you have a lot of photos.
I used Microlam,- engineered timber that is made to allow for more support over a greater span, - good stuff, -won't splinter or crack.

Just Two pieces Lag bolted between the top of the frame side rails and seat plate. The bottom bolts that hold the seat frame to the cab were left untouched. Perfectly safe and sturdy and easy to do.

How much lift is required to fit most 10" subs (not shallow mounts), and still be able to flip the seat up? And I looked at install pics that involved removing the entire backseat. Is that necessary with the DIY stuff you guys are doing?

can you take a picture of how the wooden blocks look on your lift for your rear back seat speakers, i was thinking about getting that but i dont know what it looks like

If you don't mind me asking, can you give me the dimensions of the blocks that you used? I'm in a situation where I bought (2) Kicker 12's to replace my (2) Kicker 10's snd I can't find an unloaded box with enough airspace that will fit in my truck... ; (

Any advice, pictures, etc. that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
James
