    I fit a forward facing car seat in the back of my tacoma all the time. Im not sure about a rear facing, however.

    There's legs that fold out in mine, that hold the car seat upright. Its behind the passenger side seat. I've had two car seats in it before, one on each side, but I had to find something to prop the seat up on the drivers side. My three year old cousin fits back there fine, but I had to move the seat up a little.

    I have a front facing seat in the back of my 2000 ext. cab. It goes on the passenger side. There is a drink holder that flips up to support the base. I have tried a rear facing seat, but it was too long. The front seat had to be all the way forward.

    A few times I needed to take my kid in the truck a very short distance with the rear facing seat, I put it on the front passenger seat and turned offf the air bag. I did this only to drive her 3 mi to daycare on residential streets (25-35 mph speed limits).

    Even with a front facing seat, it needs to have a back that is somewhat upright. We have one front facing seat that has some recline to it that doesn't fit as well. I use a Costco seat that I got at Target for ~$40. It fits well and is rated for something like 20-50 lbs.

    I own a 2002 extended cab, 4x4. I have twin boys (15 months). Is it possible to fit 2 car seats in the back? How safe is it though?
