What do you keep in the compartment under the driver seat?

Hi everyone. Just picked up my 2015 white Altitude a few weeks ago and have been reading the forums. Was curious- those of you that have the empty compartment under the driver seat, what do you keep in there? I thought about jumper cables but that doesn't make much sense given if my battery was dead the power seat probably wouldn't work to access the compartment.

Also, a number of threads mention the dual compartment in the center console. Looks like my console only has 1 compartment. Maybe something they changed in 2015?

Thanks!

Re: What do you keep in the compartment under the driver seat?

Can't answer you on the first one as my QL system is in mine. On the second, do you not have the upper tray in your center console?

Re: What do you keep in the compartment under the driver seat?

If you have a CD player, your center console does not have the top tray.


If you don't have the CD player, take note that the latch you grab to open the console has two halves. If you grab one, the upper tray is accessible. If you grab the other half, the tray is lifted as if it was part of the lid.

I do have a CD player. Not sure when I will ever use it though.

Re: What do you keep in the compartment under the driver seat?

When you decide you would rather have a more useable console than a CD player, see this thread.

Parts list to remove the '14 CD player

Used to be a great place to hide the CC, but now with a console vault I'm not using it.

My 2011 Laredo has a cd player and the center console has both upper and lower compartments.

MY11-13 is totally different than MY14-15. There is no CD player in the dash. It's an extra cost accessory that takes up most of the center arm-rest storage area.

Which model console vault are you using? Mine has been on me or in the console with no vault forever, but my kids are getting big enough where I need to lock up the console gun.

Re: What do you keep in the compartment under the driver seat?

I know someone that uses the compartment under the seat to store a second battery. It lays on its side, but works really well apparently.

Cheers, Craig

Nothing.
My Husky rear floor liner extends up under the driver's seat and it would be too much of a pain to move it every time I wanted to access the storage area.
