    Wondering if there are air conditioning vents specifically for the rear seats in the double cab? The Toyota information states that there are rear seat heater vents... not able to use a A/C connection?

    under the front seats there are vents that point towards the rear of the truck, but thats all. to see if they are air conditioning too, turn on the a/c and stick your hand under the seat, from the back. if nothing, turn it to heat and try it again

    Thanks whipper,

    Any idea if AC cold air actually reaches the back seat passenger (not just their legs)?

    Reason I ask, is that I need to purchase a Double Cab due to a 1 year old boy in a child seat and living in the Texas heat. He gets pretty hot in my Access Cab

    Get a light color, like white or silver. Get the windows tinted as dark as you can. All else fails, stick the car seat in the middle of the back seat and direct the front middle ac vents in that direction. When you don't have a passenger drop the passenger seat down for better air flow. Other than that, all ya got for the back is the vents under the seats. Though I haven't had any complaints from back seat passengers. If ya wanna go a step further, get a remote start for the truck and get it started a minute or two before you get in with the blower goin on the third setting. That should get your truck cooled, or heated better for the initial entry. And try to park under trees in the summer. Congrats on the new baby.

    There's no way a child is going to be hot in the rear seat. My 2 year is quite cool back there, sometimes too cold and I have to turn it down. Granted the high 90's we see here isn't quite TX heat but we've had plenty of 100+ heat indices here lately.

    Nah, the reason is because people complained that there were too few cup holders in previous models.

    Hmm....I'm thinkin some flat rectangular air ducts, maybe hook them into the air in front, channel them along either side of the center console and flare them up right between the seats and the back of the console.

    The rear seats do take a few minutes longer to cool off definitely, but my 2 yard apes have not had rear vents their entire life (all in Texas). I just point ALL the AC vents to the rear, as the front seat people still get air, and it cools down after a few minutes. They've never complained, but now that I have one yard-ape-learner's-permitted wife/I get some rear seat time, and yes it does take a few minutes longer to cool down, but nothing dangerous, although listening to the wife, the story is different :).

    Definitely agree it sure would be nice to have some rear vents though.
