Any ideas of keeping the box still

I have a custom box in my extented cab were the back seat use to be. The problem is that is moves around way to much. Is there any good ways of keeping it still. Would i be able to screw it down into the floor with a heavy duty screw or something like that... Do you guys think that Velcro would work??

Is it directly on the floor or on that little hump under the back window? A pic would be handy too.

This option also give you the use of both seats if needed.

Putting it directly on the floor would help. Then you'd have two options for the amp. 1. Under a seat or 2. Mounted to the rear wall. Of course if you've seen the floor box I built in mine, you could do a half sized version of that to mount the amp in (Or platform to put the amp under) and bolt the box directly onto it or with brackets.

Do you use the other rear seat? If not, consider the floor platform I and several others have built. Works great for me!

Hope this helps,

Chance

Bummer it's not an 8, you could cram it in the rear door....

ps- I would also hesitate to screw into the floor directly underneath that box as the gas tank is there. Very little clearance, I have found... Luckily, I only nicked it....

Thanks for the complement! :)

Velcro may help a little unless you corner real hard, I'd guess. Only other thing I can think of is to sit the box on the hump and use one or two of the rear seat bolts to bolt it to the floor, but that would mean moving your amp elsewhere.

So, as far as ease of use, I'm guessing a good strong velcro patch would help. Either that or there's something similar, except that both sides need to have it. Can't think of what it is called at the moment though. Try the velcro first since it's the cheapest and easiest fix. If it doesn't work, we'll try something else.

Velcro is what I used and my box NEVER moves, an incredibly cheap fix and I never have to worry about it again.

i put bolts down through the bottom of the box all the way underneath the truck, and because half the box sits on the the hump, i screwed some wood blocks under the box to keep it level and study
