Yes, the LT does have a provision for the false floor shelf, and it’s an easy DIY install.You'll need to replace both side panels to get it to fit properly.
The LT has no provision for the panel.
Yeah, I see they came up with an add-on setup. Mine has the molded panels from the factory >Yes, the LT does have a provision for the false floor shelf, and it’s an easy DIY install.
The LT has two small circular indents in the side panels. Behind these indents are the threads for the false floor brackets. So, just cut out the thin plastic circles with a utility knife and screw in the side brackets included in the false floor kit. Takes about five minutes.
The false floor really should be standard in all Bolts, as it makes the rear floor completely flat once the rear seats are folded down, which is very handy. Once the false floor is installed there’s still plenty of room below it for storage.
I believe that the side shelf brackets are the same for both the LT and Premier trim levels. They’re bolted into fittings with two bolts per bracket. I have the LT, but Premier models I’ve seen appear to have the same brackets I installed myself.Yeah, I see they came up with an add-on setup. Mine has the molded panels from the factory >
Im looking to buy the false floor. I bought an LT and wanted something used or if there is an aftermarket alternative.
This is awesome. Can't wait to see the final install.I also have an LT which didn't come with a false floor. I want to install one. My son 3D printed a set of brackets. I'm going to make the "floor" out of plywood and cover it with something cute. I will leave the design of the covering up to my daughter. She is pushing for a stripped two-tone gray material with red stitching and a lightning bolt ⚡ embroided on it. What do you think?
If you want to do that, I suggest you make a template out of cardboard first.Are you at all handy? I'm not, but I like to think I am. I wanted the false floor kit but since I'm hauling a full-size spare all the time, the kit won't work cause the spare protrudes too high. What I'm thinking is, rig a hinge using M6-1.0x20mm bolts and cutting my own board using a dremel and a long 2x4.
I found the bolt part # 11588712 used in the false floor kit from: https://www.reddit.com/r/BoltEV/comments/75wd76
If you measure the "cord" length and the "height" of the rear area (assuming it's a wedge from a circle) and plug numbers under the "Segment defined by chord and height" on this site: https://planetcalc.com/1421/#
You can get the radius of the circle. Mount your board perpendicular to the circle and attach a dremel with the plunge cut bit to the circle center using rigid string and cut an arc. So say your hatch area has a chord length of 36" and a height of 3", you'd need to anchor your string at 55.5" away from the cutting bit of the dremel. Then swing the dremel (keep the string taught) across y our 36"x24" board and you should get a curved board that fits right into the hatch area.
Or, you know, buy the kit if you don't have a huge full-size spare tire in the way.
We have an OEM wheel and tire back there, and it is the same height as the ledge for the false floor. If anything, it appears it would make the floor even more stable.Are you at all handy?
