It is entirely up to you. Click on my avatar and look at my album.

You use short screws like 1" and smaller when mounting to a rear seat.

Like freemind said, its really your choice. Many go with on the back-seat. I chose to mount under the passenger seat simply because I use my trunk alot, and lay seats down often.

It does get a bit hotter under the seat though.
