OOoo. That is what I plan on doing. Well, probably one seat at least. From what I've read, it's not an overly complicated process, but some bolts do stick up from the frame. I want to see what Goosegear comes up with. A nice flat platform with extra storage and whatnot would be great.

I’m already planning for this. The key for me is to find a seat delete kit that doesn’t prevent me from storing the panels and doors in the back. The back seat and cargo area are going to be for dog and gear. Should lose a decent amount of weight from removing the seats. Hopefully more than the delete kit adds.

There will be studs sticking up from the floor with the seat removed. Someday when I get mine I'm going to make my own "delete" via a pullout platform similar to what goose gear does, but make it way better than they do for way cheaper.

Yup. More than likely Goose gear will use the existing bolts to mount their delete kit. Definitely better than trying to remove them.

I think it will be several months before we really start seeing people ripping into their Broncos. Personally, my rear seats are coming out the first weekend I have it.

We know what the rear of the tub looks like, and know the studs are there. There’s really one way to level the rear (plywood, or starboard if you’re feeling spendy). And a few ways to deal with the studs.

1). Use them as mount points after you drop in your plywood if you’re building any kind of organization system in the back. This is my plan and I think they’re actually an unintended gift from Ford that we already have pre placed mounting points.

2). Drop in your plywood and then cover the studs with some sort of sloping, rubberized polymer piece. I’m envisioning either something cylindrical that sits on the studs or something that takes the shape of a field cone with sloping edges. This would be the solution if you’re looking to haul larger items in the back that you’ll be taking in and out.

I reached out to Goose Gear asking that exact question and they intend on making a rear seat delete for the 2 door. I can’t wait!

Below is the response I got:

I look forward to following your progress, as I want to make my 2-door much more dog-friendly. Those studs look to be ~2" high; I'd hate to remove them and lose the ability to reinstall the seats.

I'll let them work out a blueprint on my 2 door if they give me one for free when they start to manufacture 😁

What about a rigid foam board from HD? Could get that in 2” thickness with no weight gain. Carpet one side and voila! Not sure if it would squeak, but it’s not expensive to try it out. I may explore it on my 2dr since I really don’t need the rear seats.
