Access Cabs: Where do you keep your stuff

I just switched from a 2dr 2wd 2000 to a 09 4x4 Access cab and now I'm having a hard time finding places for the stuff I like to keep in my truck. I have a locking tonneau cover so I've got some of it strapped down in my bed, but I don't like that as a long term solution.

Maybe i've got too much stuff, but what do you have and where do you keep it in your trucks?

you might want to look into getting a tool box, but that means getting rid of the cover.

Let me get this straight, you bought a bigger truck with more room and you don't know where to store your stuff? I don't get it.

it was more a question of what do you guys keep in your access cabs at all times. I want to keep the seats open for people to sit in, but I want to carry things like my 2ton jack and other emergency stuff like that

All I usually have in mine are my tools, and if I'm not working I don't need them in there, so when I have my daughter they go in the house. As far as the jack goes, I wouldn't want that riding around in my back seat anyway so if I had one it would be in the bed.

You don't have to worry about keeping your back seats open for passengers in your access cab unless you happen to be Willy Wonka and like to take your Oompa Loompas to the market.

These trucks are full of cubby holes I keep stuf in the center console and the glove box all the time. but my tow strap and mag light I keep in in the cubby hole under the rear seat. Now that 2ton floor jack you got ask ur self do you really need? I you do see if you can mount it on the bed some how. I've seen a few LT trucks do that.

what the hell do you need a 2 ton jack for? the jack underneath the back seat should be enough.

I've got a rubber-maid tote in the bed up against the cab under a fold-a-cover tonneau that opens from the front or back, I keep most of my junk in there it's easy to remove if i need the space. It's mostly detailing stuff, I used to keep a duffel bag in my first gen with a pull handle and socket for lug nuts, rain coat, bungees, sledge, and a big towel, some tire plugs and other assorted junk but I think most of that will fit in the storage compartments under the seats if I ever get around to it.

I like the access cab and keep most things in the cubby's and consoles. I like not being a "school bus" and having to drive the kids around in it. I have an acura for that. I don't carry a 2-ton floor jack, just a few tools for emergency repairs and a few tie-down straps and tow straps. I like the 4-door as well, just not as much.

unbolt those worthless rear seats and give yourself some space back there. Access to the built in storage pockets, storage underneath the bench, and a platform to carry any tools or the dog, depending on whether or not its a weekend.

I just leave the seats folded down most of the time, also leaves a little extra room for stuff under them. I do like that setup though, if I had a car to drive my daughter around in I would probably do that.

I leave the rear seats down. The only passengers I carry are my gf and the dog. The dog has a bed that stays on the folded down back seats. I keep a few things in the cubby's under the seats; jumper cables, tow strap, lug wrench for my wheels. My tools go in the bed which has a shell on it. If I'm hauling anything more than my backpack, then it goes in the bed.

Keep most of stuff I don't need everyday in a foot locker strapped in bed (have a Leer bed cap on it).

I had a tool box in my old Chevy, and i loved it, but I don't want one in the taco, it would take up way too much of the bed.
