So needless to say I wanted to put a PC in my truck since I spend a couple of hours in it a day just commuting to work and home.

I wasn't going to be putting anything else under there!
My only other option was to mount it up front somewhere, since my truck did not have an arm rest and the middle seat did not fold down, I decided to remove the middle front seat and build a custom armrest console to replace it with.
I wanted to keep all original parts intact, so that I can take all my stuff out and put the factory stuff back in if I ever get rid of it, so no modifications of the vehicle was done....
