What's underneath.....

......the front passenger seat? If you were to remove the stock front passenger seat (to create more space) what is going to be left potentially in the way?

I think it's just the jack. I'm sure you can put that somewhere else and put something else in there.

It depends on your model, and accessory package. Mine has the jack. Some have heat/ac parts, and something else I can't remember. On those, the jack is back in the right rear corner, in view.


Here's a link that shows my custom bracket, at the D pillar base: Project: Minimalist with kayak


The reply just after that shows an OEM mount, at the rear side wall.

Question

Yep the hydraulic jack is under the seat (as opposed to the apparatus located under the seat accessed through the step well.

On models with power seats, it's bolted to the starboard side floor behind the wheel well. When I assumed it had something to do with the rear A/C and that I wouldn't have it on the new order, my salesman politely told me that "that yellow thing" was the hydraulic jack and can be mounted some place else".

However... where ? And, won't there be a hole in the floor mat/floor at that spot in the back? I do need it moved as it's in the 40" of valuable space behind that wheel well! (That hole might be useful now that I think about it, for strapping something else down.)

Since my dog doesn't use the passenger door much, is it feasible to bolt that jack at the front of the step well inside the PS door?????

There was nothing under the passenger seat on my 2015 except for the jack. Since I have manual seats and do not have the side air bags there was not any wiring under the seat. Did have to remove the jack when I built the passenger seat swivel. Jack is now bolted down inside my sink cabinet.

The door fills the step well.

with the right bracket perhaps you could put the jack on the passenger side engine compartment frame rail under the air cleaner box, a thin layer of grease would protect the ram on the hydraulic jack from the weather. (just an idea, there is a large wasted space there.) my jack is fine under the seat.
