    My rear seats in my '08 doubelcab have never folded even with each other. I've mentioned it the dealer and they said there is nothing they can do. I'm trying not to be too picky but I find this really annoying since I have the back seats down alot and stuff doesn't sit flat or slide between the two sections.

    Anyone else have this issue? I have 400 miles left on my warranty to make a stink.

    Take a deep breath in and let it out. :p

    Is there another dealership you can try? Not really sure if it is worth the trouble fro a dealer to look too much into it, I am leaning towards no.

    I'd say there's not much you can do about that... I hate how the rear seats are configured in the double cabs. It's just a stupid set-up, no underseat storage to speak of, having to remove the headrests to fold the seats down, and if you have anything on the floor like a toolbox, you can't flip the bottom seat up in order to fold the upper part down...
    sorry for the rant:eek: I just feel the designers fell short with the double cab, but I've learned to live with it as you will too

    move the passenger seat forward, if the seat is resting against the passenger seat, that will prevent the back to fold flat

    I've actually gone a step further and taken the back seat bottoms off completely. Didn't change anything.

    I just looked to make sure the seat belts weren't causing any issue. To me it seems like there is too much foam in one area of the back rest that keeps it from folding flat.

    Maybe have someone or something sit/be in the right side seat for a while. That might squish the foam down just enough to fix this issue.

    Put something under the low one to even them out.

    Thanks for the responses. Seems like I may be the only one with this. I'll probably just put a towel under the low side to even them out.
