My rottie is too big for the back seat so I've been looking into a cost/weight efficient delete. I've been told deleting the seat increases NVH but I plan on looking into some dynamat once I find an installer.

What? We've actually got a back seat???? I've tried sitting it in and it's impossible.. The only way I can drive is to have the front seat almost touching the back seat.. Maybe if you're under 10 years old, but that's about it..

I've also pulled out the seats. They're truly only a couple pounds. Nothing really performance wise to save.

The rear seats are very very light. You really arent going to save any weight pulling them. @ 60 lbs, this replacement would probably increase the weight. My friends and family rarely use the backseat, but I think it's better to just keep it as is. As for sound, lay down your seats and drive around with that cargo area open. I thought my rear end was going out until I remembered I had dropped it a few days before and actually looked back there! lol

Right! And you still save the trunk space since the subs and amps would fit completely in the back seat area.

Got to keep my back seats. For one, the Little One is still in the larger Child Seat and I can't put her up front for a few years, and it's a LOT more practical to have it in the event that I take the car anywhere and someone needs a ride. I've had 3 full sized adult passengers in the car in the last month. Thankfully the Child Seat is a BREAZE to take out and it fits in the trunk...w/ my guitar!!!
