Default SuperCrew Cab Fold Down Back Seat Trick Video

I've seen all the photos of people folding down their back seats with all sorts of pliers and trying to cram their hands down the back. I personally cut my finger trying to get the back seat to fold down. It's no easy task that's for sure. After examining the location of the latch and exploring the possibility of permanently attaching a pull wire, I deciding it wasn't worth the effort. Instead I grabbed a hank of 550 cord, tied it into a loop and... here are the fruits of my labor




You must fold the seat up first.







The latch is about 6 inches from the end of the seat (towards the door)



You're looping the silver latch not the black one.

Did the same thing. I store booster cables and stuff back there.

On a side note....did you install smaller headrests or something? Mine are huge!

No, maybe they made them larger in their infinite wisdom. My front head rests are huge!

Haha, after some snooping around I found out the 2010s got different headrests on all 4 seats then the 2011s got one in the middle in the back. Interesting.

I have no idea of what you're talking about as I have the extended cab but that video was great....you mounted the camera on something so it didn't shake around. Thanks for that!

I want those headrests! Lol.

Might as well not have a back window on mine - headrests take up over half the window...
