I don't have the Quadra-lift system, but there's some kind of module under the driver's seat on my 2015 JGC Limited.
I do have the Navi system, so maybe it's the computer for that since it's easy to get to and that is a dealer add-on component.

I carry extra long jumpers, that I was about to wrap around the spare tire, now I need to either carry a battery pack jump starter or normal length jumpers under the passenger seat...
I don't know if an extra long set of cables would fit, but the standard length ones I have fit nicely next to the battery in the compartment under the passenger seat. There's plenty of room to allow the battery to be moved around when replacing it, which makes enough space for a set of jumper cables.
They come in a nice rubber soft bag, so I'm not worried they could arc off the battery, and I believe the positive pole is well toward the front of the vehicle anyway.
Even if I can't move the seat forward, the bin lid comes up enough to get the cable bag out of the compartment.
Related to the tire well, I wish the well were deeper since it's well above the level of the rear bumper cover. As it is, with the tool holder in there, I can't put a 4 way lug wrench in there. I like to carry one since it ensures I have any size I might encounter if I need to help someone else change a tire. It's disappointing since everything else in front of it comes down lower and all to the same height as each other. The wheel well is the on;y thing up that high. It can't be because of trailing height, because you'd get hung up on the bumper cover if anything under it were that high.
I'm also disappointed my hitch is a bit to big to fit in the slot provided on the tool holder. As a result, I keep it in one of the bins to the side of the tire along with a set of tie-down straps.
Quick tip: I was in the Home Depot and found a black carpeted and rubber-backed door mat that closely matches the cargo area carpet. I store it on top of the spare tire under the load floor. Now, if I have to change a tire of look under the vehicle in bad weather (or in nice pants), I can kneel on it to avoid getting my pants wet and dirty. It makes for a nice, clean place to set the lug nuts and tools, too. It cost me all of about $2.50. I also stashed an old towel in the center of the wheel next to the tool holder so I can stand under the tail gate and dry off wet tools before I put them away.
