    They do look nice. Hope you make it work.

    I have been wondering if a set of second row seats from a Sienna would work. The type that fold flat and then tumble forward. It would be nice for rear seat area access to have a seat that folded flat forward. I'm going to look at some in salvage yard this Spring and see if it looks feasible. They are "striker" mounted and removable too. You can see the stikers peaking out of the carpet. You pull a lever and just lift the seat out of the vehicle.

    I'd have to combine the two type of attachment systems or they would not slide adjust for leg position. That would be the task.
    I wish @BartMaster1234 would go ahead and try it first so I'd know how difficult it would be...:fingerscrossed:

    These seats are out of an 04'

    They don't necessarily bolt right up, I'll be fabricating tabs to relocate 2 of the 4 bolt holes. There's a slight mismatch in the front 2 bolts. It looks super easy and I'll definitely post them here when/if they get done

    These seats mounts are nearly identical to Toyota, so I won't need a bracket, I'll be extending the front 2 with 1/8 plate.

    The issue here are the anchor points. They’re recessed into the floor. I don’t know how secure you can possible make it.

    I wouldn’t trust it.

    Do you have a pic with your bikes mounted up? Are those the Thule Insta-gator bike racks? The way it shows on their website is the Insta-gator hooks up to the tailgate area and you put the bike in facing backwards. This would not work for me with my 5' bed.

    They are the Insta-gator racks, but you have to take the arms and switch their sides so that they are not against the derailleur. The original is held to the tailgate just like a zip tie and has nothing to keep the bike and the rack from being stolen if a thief has a good pair of loppers, but welding the rack onto the angle iron allows it to be bolted through a hole in the frame with a locknut. (The hole was already there.) This gives a solid anchor point for a chain if you want and it keeps the rack still. I believe there is enough space for the 5' bed but you would have to turn the wheel, which is not a problem for me as I have the full length bed. You could have the tailgate open if you have a longer bike like a downhill bike. IMG_3990.jpg

    Ok. I understand. You have to reverse it since you are putting it backwards from what they suggest. And yes, since I have the 5' bed, I'll just have to turn the wheel. No biggie. This is great info. I can weld the rack to the bed and for further security get a super heavy chain to go through the frame/wheel. Please keep an eye on this thread. I'm going to go with this setup and I may have a question later.... Thanks!

    If I wasn't clear there, I also planned on using a bed extender so I wouldn't have to turn the wheel. But since you mentioned, I may not have to get a bed extender and just turn the wheel instead.
