    Hey guys, I'm looking to get a DCSB Tacoma soon and while I havent gotten up close and personal yet, I've noticed there is a good size compartment behind the back seat. Can you fit an AR back there? I have a couple both with folding stocks, one is 16" and the other is a 14.5". Can never be too ready for a Zombie attack! :D

    I fit two AR's behind my seat in my regular cab, one has 22" barrel. You'll be fine

    Sweet! pics would be cool. That would be great if I could stick my 14.5" and a FN FiveseveN along with spare mags in the back. Dont worry, I'm not some nut job, but I go hog hunting with a buddy and it'd be nice if I could keep the two out of view, you know what I mean?

    14.5" is the shortest allowed in Ga. but the muzzle break/flash hider has to be pinned to make it 16.1". I am in the process of getting a NFA tax stamp so I can go as short as I want which would only be 11.5"

    I can't fit my folded AK behind the seat on my double cab and it is about 2" shorter than my 16" AR fully collapsed. Now a 10.5" NFA AR yeah no problem.

    I took all the plastic out from behind the seats. All my long guns fit back there now, even in the cases.

    That's a hell of a gun. My 870 is a backup to my Benelli Supernova. It's mainly use by my buddies who tag along during shooting trips

    as you can see in the first photo my overall rifle length collapsed is 33"

    It doesnt fit behind the rear seat it sticks out by 5" but it does fit nicely in the cubby UNDERNEATH the rear seat (probably wont fit with 30rnd clip but should fit a 20 and a 10 is no prob). and since it has to sit on top of the tranny hump there is plenty or room underneath for extra magazines and ammo. as you can see by the pic i have the rear sight folded down to fit underneath and it probably wouldnt fit with a red dot or scope or at all unless you cut the grip down or something

    yeah you could probably make a custom rack up tward the top and just cut out a lil bit of the plastic between the two pieces. not sure if there are supports or anything behind the plastic but from what ive seen and heard on here i dont think so.
