Lately, I’ve been running with 3 passengers in the backseat: dog, 5-month old, and my wife or me to keep the kiddo company on longer drives. This is a 3rd gen Tacoma.
Since this new arrangement the dog has been a little disgruntled about loosing her total control of the backseat. It occurred to me that her seat (40% portion) wasn’t really needed and was just taking up space and getting dirty with dog hair.
So I removed the bolts holding in the bottom of the seat and the seat back (4 total) and I’ve gained about 50 liters of storage, and made a better and larger platform for the dog.
I’m liking the new approach so far…and so does the dog.
