I'd be down for the other one if shipping isn't too crazy! Very cool of you to offer them up!
PM me your zip code (I can weigh and estimate the shipping here at my work)

Nothing in it right now. I should have gotten the orange one to match the trim. Got it from Amazon:

So it doesn't get crushed whatever you put back there? Also, what sort of stuffs can you put back there using the pouch?

In another thread, imboden013 posted this image of the stock equipment behind his back seat (looks like he has the B&O sound system with the amp and subwoofer along with the motor for the sliding rear glass window). As long as the items are no deeper than the blue plastic cover to the right of that motor, it should be fine.

Not OP but using a similar setup (going to upgrade to what he posted.) Towels, Gloves, Tools, Emergency Parka's, Emergency TP Roll, Cables stowed in the corner, & Safety glasses to name a few things.

The Maverick models without the amplifier behind the rear seat has the mounting bracket unused. When I looked behind the rear seat in my XLT I began thinking of ways to utilize the space for extra storage and realized I could use the amplifier bracket to mount a storage bag. Here’s my DIY solution.
I had access to an unused desk side hanging storage bag from a desk (table) from my work. I used a 1/8 thick piece of strip stock, 1 inch wide and 16 inches long (your bag may require a different length) rounded the edges, drilled my holes for the amp bracket at 7-7/8” on center. I then drilled extra holes for the bag and painted black.
I folded back the tabs on the amp bracket to get a flush surface and mounted the strip and bag using 8-32 x 1” bolts with washers on each side and lock nuts.
Now I have extra storage in the unused area behind the rear seat where I currently have jumper cables and room for more.

Thank you for the idea. I will be picking one of these up off Amazon, unless you still have an extra one you are willing to part with.
