Review of the WeatherTech Under Seat Truck Storage Box Review on a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


Adam: Hi everybody, Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the WeatherTech under seat storage system on our 2020 Chevy Silverado. So this is probably one of the first things I would buy if I had a truck just because I do like toolboxes, but I like the bedspace. With this, I'll be able to put all my tools and stuff in here, and I don't really have to worry about losing any bedspace in the bed of my truck. And then also it's going to be a little bit more protected just because obviously toolboxes usually lock, but it's only one lock. With this, obviously our doors locked.

So having everything come inside the cab, locked, ready to go. So I really would be a little bit more rest assured that no one would come and steal all my stuff. And the next thing is usually when you see a toolbox you know there's some goodies in there.So if anybody has any sticky hands, I think they're not even going to be able to see this just because the seats are going to act as a lid. And even if someone is, I don't know, walking by through the parking lot and all of a sudden, they're just gonna peeking in, seeing what they can see. You can't really see anything that's in the box.

You might be able to see the box, but probably not going to have enough wits to come in here and try to grab it. So I think this is going to be a more secure place for all of your tools.And we do have a lot of different sections here. We have little organizers or dividers, whatever you want to call them. And that's just going to help pretty much organize your stuff. The nice thing about it is you can have a bunch of stuff in here, but at the end of the day you can just fold down your seats and your truck's going to look really clean.

So that's something I like. So I have everything I need in the truck, but it looks like it's completely clean and nothing's in there. So let's go ahead and give you guys an idea of how much stuff we can fit in here. I'm going to put the jack that we took out initially. It is going to take up pretty much one whole section here.Put that in there.

So usually what I travel with is some tools. I got my bits, odds and end hardware. Put that in there. I usually bring at least a battery or two, definitely a charger. So you can put that in this little section right there. I'm actually going put it over here. And then I have me my drill. That's all I really need to get the job done. And then of course I got some etrailer ratchet straps. Throw that in there. So this is to give you an idea. This is usually what I bring along with me whenever I have some sort of side gig or anything like that. But they're plenty of room to put even more, maybe some loose items in here as well.Another drill, tape measure, whole tool bag. I don't know. A lot of stuff we can fit in here. And with the seats folded down, you can't really tell that they're there, which is pretty cool. Another thing that I like about the box is just the material that it's made out of. There is a time I had a car part, it had brake fluid on it and I put it on my dash just because I didn't want it on my seats or my carpet, but it ate through the paint on my dash. I was not too happy, but the material that the box is made out of is going to resist against all of those hard chemicals you guys may put it in.So if you guys want to be extra safe, go ahead and just throw it in here. It's going to keep your seats, your dash and your floor nice and safe. But also the box is going to be totally fine too. I really do like the color just because it goes with the black theme of the truck. We do have gray seats, but it definitely doesn't stand out and it's just low profile. You can't really tell it's there and it doesn't really affect my leg room at all. So I definitely would recommend grabbing the box just because it's going to be all in all lifesaver and many different cases just because of everything we can do with it.So the first thing we want to do is take our little strap here and I like to do it before we put it in the truck. So there's going to be a little slot here, all you really got to do and I'll just feed it through and then you can go ahead and fish it back through this little clip like that. And I just like doing this before we put it in there, just because it is relatively difficult to get it fed through there. Now we don't have to worry about it on the inside. It's just going to come apart. Perfect.All right, so now next thing we need to do probably before we put this in there. So that's inside. We're going to have a jack that is going to be underneath the seat. So just lift up the seat here and we're going to have to remove this. So usually what we got to do is just loosen this guy and then also loosen this little nut guy. Slide this off, and this comes right out. So if you guys do have a jack like this, we probably need to remove it just to get the better fit, or we can put it in the storage box when we're done. So, set that to the side for now.And now we can go ahead and grab our box. Make sure the WeatherTech sign is going to be facing towards the front of the vehicle. And we have a little contour here which is going to fit right over the drive shaft tunnel on the inside of our cab. Just get it put into place like that. You guys will know when it gets in the right spot, just because of how it's custom molded for this truck. So that's pretty much good. Come a little bit farther back. And it does have a little cutout by that bracket. So it does sit right next to it. But we don't really have to undo these tools. They can just stay here. So once we do that, we go ahead and grab our strap and we can go ahead and tie it down to whatever's best.What I think I'm going to go ahead and do is probably just use one of my seatbelt loops or even this tool actually might be a little bit more central. I grab behind it so it's not really pulling at an angle. So what I'm going to do is actually just take this off for a little bit. A lot of threads. All right so once I get this off, I'm going to go ahead and just feed this side back behind the tool and then go ahead and reconnect it. This is just going to prevent, if you guys have a bunch of stuff like heavy tools or something like that, which usually I have in the truck. This is just going to prevent that from sliding all forward if you guys hit something. Hopefully not. But if you guys do slam on the brakes really hard too, this is going to prevent all that from happening.So you try to get it as close as you can, straight back, connect that little clip and go ahead and just tighten it up. All that slack. Just like that. I took all that away. And now it's not really going to go anywhere and that's pretty much it for the install.Well everyone that's just about it for our look at the WeatherTech under seat storage system on our 2020 Chevy Silverado.
