Default A computer desk for your truck

The attached drawing is demensioned for my F-150. You can alter the dementions for your vehicle and a good metal shop can whip one up for you.

Take a look at the first picture...the big "tabs" or "ears" on either side slide down between the center "seat" and the driver and passenger seat on either side. Then the hook anchors the desk in place via the seat belt. The hook is offset because of where the seat belt buckel wind up when all the slack is taken out of the belt.

The three sided wall on top is there to make a place for maps, guides, pencils and such. Once the desk was delivered I realized I could have moved that back toward the hook and had more storage space. That's the one design change I would have made.

Looks good....a lot better than the one they sell at a fire department supply company I know of.
