Stowing the floor flaps. Where?

In the owners owners manual it says to stow the floor flaps by opening the velcro fastners on the back rests of the 3rd row steats.

Is there a place to put them if you dont have 3rd row seats?

Thanks.

Why would you need to stow them if you don't have the 3rd row?

Im having a subwoofer attached to the rear of the back seats and the flaps need to be removed.

OK, that makes snese. In that case, why not just remove them from the truck entirely? Then you can reinstall them when you need to use them, assuming they'll fit over your speakers.

No, there is not a place to store the floor panels. The only option was the back of the 3rd row seats. I never checked but will they fit under the 2nd row seats?

Why even bother asking this? You know the answer. The manual says to stow them on third row if you have one. If you don't have 3rd row, they stay in place. If you decide to install sub-woofers or modify the OEM arrangement in any way, that's for you to figure out where to keep the darn things. We can help, but you have to ask for that kind of help, not make it sound like the OEM suggestion is way out of line! Keep them in the garage!
