well. i did this mod, and one of the bolts ended up in no mans land (like stated in the orginal write up) LOL. it was the last bolt, and i didnt bother removing the whole back panel, which made it harder than it really was. all i heard was, the last thread the the bolt slip out of my hand and down the back like a ball in the pachinko machine. i hope it doesnt rattle around down there LOL.

Hey, I occasionally need to carry someone in back and previous owner removed the headrests. Anyone still have theirs lying around?

After reading through this entire thread, I just removed the seats, headrests, and center console out of my 2014 Access Cab Tacoma. It was very easy, and I am not a rocket scientist. The only thing a bit different on the new Tacomas is there are two back panel fasteners in the upper right and left corners of the panel. Each is covered by a small access panel. If you gently pry the panels off, and remove these fasteners, the panel will pop right off. I was able to just pop the top part of the panel off and access the bolts without removing the entire panel. I would agree with one post that what you gain in space might not be worth the trouble of removing the seats and headrests. For me, I already owned a couple of really nice Sterilite storage bins that were just a hair too big to fit behind the front seats, so removing the back seats gave me just enough room to use them. Otherwise, I'd be looking at purchasing new bins.

hated the space the headrests took up so just popped the upper part of the panel and reached in with a socket, got all 8 screws out no prob. But did drop a socket into no mans land! doh! like someone else said hope it doesnt rattle around too much.......

I must be the only person who doesn't mind the rear headrests. They are kind of pointless, but I like the added privacy they add by blocking part of the rear window. I removed my rear view mirror, so I don't look straight out the back window anyhow.
