This looks amazing…
Is it pretty permanent or easy enough to put seats back if you need them ?

Finally finished my cargo load floor on the 'Bad Mule'...
1/2" plywood floor, 1/2" and 3/4" furrings utilizing 8 factory fastening locations. Majority of the construction is glued and stapled. My anchor mount locations utilizing 1/4-20 tee-nuts or threaded inserts.
Slide platform is 3/4" ply, on locking, 28" sliders, with 1/2" jointed ply uprights.
Upholstered in unbound indoor/outdoor carpeting.

Full access to the jack and storage cubby...

Passenger side floor has multiple anchor locations to accommodate different load-outs (showing just the button-head hardware for place marker)

When not camping, I setup a cargo net for the grocery runs 👍🏻

Here is a what the typical load would look like on the platform (before I carpeted it)
Space in behind the cooler/Rotopax is for dry-good storage

UPDATE:

Okay... I think I have my system finalized now...
Added a 22" Milwaukee Packout box and plate to the slider for dry-goods 👍🏻

This is so badass!! Damn I wish I was good with this type of stuff to DIY! It seems I'm only good at demolition, LOL. Congratulations on a really cool project. I'll be watching for your vids, and see if I can coax 🍻🍺🍹🥃 some of my skilled friends to build me something like this! Thanks you for sharing!

Seems like a lot of work and extra $…are those items really heavy enough that you need a slide? Seem easy enough to just reach in and pull out without going through all that trouble. Especially on a 2 door where cargo are is limited and can more easily reach in.

With the seat delete it's approx 40" deep iirc, and depending on what's on that slide out not having to unpack and pack just to access something real quick will add up. Yes it might not be a super inconvenient to go without, but sometimes it's worth a little time and $$ up front to make things easier for the rest of the life of the vehicle.

True, but it also seems super inconvenient not to have the extra seats for the family and friends the times you want more than two people in the rig. I would only go that route if it was a dedicated overlanding rig and had an every day driver, or with a 4 door with no delete if I had a heavy fridge.

When you're offroading with coolers/crates/storage boxes, you'll really wanna strap that shit in. And it could be very dangerous in a highway accident...
I can strap my cargo in, and roll it out instead of climbing inside and messing with the cam-locks (platform is 51" deep IIRC)
Also, with the cooler removed when I park, I have some prep space.
The space under the slide will become my mount space for inverter, DC-DC MPPT controller, fuses, 12V regulator, etc... Keeps it hidden and clean, well organized.

The seats take maybe a half hour to put in and take out. I don't need the back seats in mine as we have another 4 door car. Not too many people pack their car full of friends to go overlanding. Only exception is if you have small kids you're taking.
