Passengers? Ain't nobody got time for that!
Anyone know about how much weight that saves me? I think the American Muscle kit advertises around 40lbs. It's definitely alot more cabin noise but I don't listen to the radio anyway haha. What do you guys think?

The kit they advertised my cut the weight, but is very cheap and flimsy. If you're like me and want a small rifle rack in the back, don't judge, then you'll be better off making it yourself.

That's a good idea. Right now it's just how the pic show it. It's not very pretty like that and the cabin drone is horrible.

This is one of the first things I did to my Mach1! Dieting is just as important as power mods because your power to weight ratio is better. Our kit will save you about 40LBs and will help get rid of the added road noise you're experiencing right now with nothing back there!

Be careful with getting something custom made. Depending on the design, material etc... they use it could end up being just as heavy as your back seat! That's why we use a light weight material.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance!

That is honestly the stupidest thing I've ever seen done to a mustang that's not a boss 302 Laguna. It's 40 pounds? That's not going to help at all maybe a .1 second on the 1/4. What happens if you absolutely need more passenger then your going to realize that 40 lbs wasn't worth that stupid kit from AM ( I'm sure it's a great product because its from AM) but its just pointless

Dont call something stupid, just because u dont want it. My car is a track/ street second type of car, i drive my f150 dd.
I am also 6,3 and nobody fits behind me anyways. And with the roll cage i am putting in it would give it a better look

I know the feeling of the backseat being absolutely useless.

Rear seat is about 21 pounds (top and bottom) and the hardware is about 9 pounds. I've been looking at the one on rearseatdelete.com which is made out of ABS plastic instead of wood.
