Yes have some carpet to put on it now and some trim for around the edges, took it out last night though to put the seats back in But yes it was actually pretty comfy at the Relay for Life, Granted for anyone 5'10 or above you would need to sleep kind of cross ways but for me its just right, of course I used to sleep in my old bob tail Broncos as well :wink:

Hi Tom - how easy is it to take the rear seats out and put them back? I'm not too handy with tools, but if it's fairly straight forward, it'd be handy extra space fot 2-3 weeks away.

Not too bad to take out just have to look for all the bolts and remove, maybe 15/20 minutes, I will have to think how many bolts there were, will get back to you tomorrow :wink:

I need to take it down out of the rafters to take some more pictures, the area that folds down only supports your head at night so no rear weight on it, at least not with my head :wink:

I put a piece of 1 X 3 all the way around the bottom for extra support including the piece that folds down all screwed and glued together so when the front is laid down flat the two pieces of wood are against each other providing more support.

I will try and get some extra pictures maybe this weekend

It looks great, Tom. Those extra few inches should definitely make a difference for sleeping back there. I just took my flat deck out again after having it in a few months. Hardest part was finding the seat belt brackets. Found them exactly where I put them in the shed though.... :oops:

I really like the flat deck, but I now have a third passenger on a regular basis, so the seats had to go back in for now......

I liked having the flat deck better as well, but every trip back down home my parents want to go somewhere ( if nothing else running old back roads/ logging trails) so need them (the rear seats) so they can ride along!
