    Nothing major or fancy. Just stuff to make it work better for me.
    What's the best way to get them out? I'd settle for just getting rid of those goofy head-rests but I'd rather just chuck the whole thing for more cargo room.

    I've already considered a cutting torch, a wrecking bar, a chainsaw, and and explosives but I'd rather just lose the rear seats and keep the pickup.

    Thanks for the help.

    I've thought about ditching the rear seats as well, already ditched the head rests and it seems like I can fit more. I think the carpet and everything is molded to the shape of the storage under the seats so w/o a lot of cutting I don't see it coming out very clean and stock looking. Good luck though.

    Pull the hard plastic trim straight away from the back wall. It will pop off, you might break some of the clips. Then simply unbolt headrests. Seats , remove trim cover from hinge points and unbolt them. I removed them and the rear seat belts, why carry around extra weight which I will never, ever use.

    Do you have pictures of this? I would like to see what the back seat area looks like w/o anything back there.

    Don't have any plans to gut the rear seats of my 2010 yet but the ones in My 2007 access-cab served me much better with the nice flat cargo deck it provided.

    My headrests would be off if I could get that damned sub enclosure off. It is a tough bitch indeed. I posted in that other thread and several others about changing the 09 AC back seats out for a pre-09 and received little to no help. I don't think anyone has done it as it is pricey. The post-08 seats suck ass!
