    I have a double cab. Everything fits behind the Rear Seats. Under the Seats. The right Passenger Side seat has my Nike Duffle Bag with my Bball, Shoes, Clothes.

    Everything fits as the Torque Wrench, Breaker Bar, & Tools under the Seat. I removed the Spare Jack. Its worthless to me.

    Do you need a locking toolbox? I picked up a plano sportsman box, and used a cargo bar to secure it against the cab in the bed. Holds all my stuff...hoody, flashlight, blanket, jumper cables, first aid kid, 2 ratchet straps, bungee cords, and chains. God bless the person that will undo my tail gate, open my tonneau, and try to pick it up.
