I mentioned it at the beginning of the post with the first picture...Home Depot. Lowes and Walmart have them too just note these are the 12" paint trays, not the narrower (more common) 9" trays.
My neighbor has an aftermarket center console in his YJ and they don't really slide in easily because of the location/size of the cup holder for the back seat. He is going to have to use the narrower ones if he wanted to do this.
It also seems like the YJ has even more room under the seat than the TJ.
JEEPING .....The art of getting dirty and going broke while slowy heading nowhere and taking all day to do it.....

That is a good idea Dave. The carpet certainly helps keep stuff quiet and I have packed them pretty tight so there isn't a lot of free space. I was thinking that foam stuff (very similar to what you posted) that you line tool cabinets with would work as well.
I think as long as it is something other than a bare plastic tray, you should be ok. Although if you are just storing things like tow straps, gloves etc. then you would probably be ok with bare plastic.
I just bought the paint trays and cut the bottom legs off. This won't work for an '03 TJ. There's a bar under the entire seat that goes across and prevents it from fitting. I really like the idea though!
The paint tray is all the way to the right. I couldn't get it under at all. The measuring tape is next to it. There is only about 1 3/8" clearance. It's okay though because the seat's coming out next week!
lol i was just reading through this and lovin the idea but i know my 04 LJ has the seat mounted to the floor unlike my 97 TJ which was mounted higher up and on the wheel well hump.. oh well, no underseat storage for me..
