The is a mod that can be done to allow the seat back to fold down, I have been thinking of doing this but have not as of yet, might look into it this coming Sunday. Here is a link to someone who has done it. Not sure if this only works on the full rear seat or it can be done on the 60/40 also. But here is the link.

Yes they do fold down, if you do the mod that I and others have done. it does not effect the safety of the truck or any passengers. at all what so ever.

3/4" wood painted black used as a spacer under the rails.


Just enough to allow the seat to fold down.

In my opinion the one I did which was also in one of the post here was better because it didn't involve cutting the bracket once you cut it you can't go back.
The one I did you can always take out the wood block and take it back to stock.

That is true, the 2 posts just gives members a choice. Anyways, my post was just to show that it can be done, if the member wishes to do it, he now has more than one way of doing it. My only issue with the plywood is that its not a perfect scenario either, I would maybe look into getting a 3/4 hard plastic sheet (same size as the plywood piece you installed) and install steal insert supports (3/16 thick tube cut to 3/4) that could carry the load in an accident. Which is what I am looking at doing. Plywood is very strong, but with 2 x 250lb dudes sitting in the back and a head on collision it my just give way. Another alternative might be aluminum or even aircraft or marine grade plywood also with steal 3/16th tube cut at same thickness of the plywood.

That I like very much.
but now that I (we) know it works that can always be an upgrade, I'll keep 250 pound dudes out of my back seat till then...LOL
even thou to be honest with you even if something were to happen as sever as that the seat belts and seats are still bolted to the floor/frame if we were to get hit like that we would have bigger issues.
but just in case keep the heavy dudes out of the back.

Two other options to make that spacer would be UHMW plastic or an aluminum plate. Both would stand up very well. Right now I have ones that I made out of MDF in my truck (I did it to be able to fit my sub underneath the seat). But I'm thinking having some made out of aluminum could be a good idea. I also work in the construction industry so I have suppliers that could make them for me fairly cheap.

yup thats what I was thinking, as I indicated that would work or aircraft plywood or marine plywood are so dense they can take a beating and not get out of shape.

Just finished my fold down rear seat mod, didn't gain a ton of room but it's nice to be able to get back there if need be. No spacers just chopped the bottom legs off of the hooks. It still locks secure and doesn't move.
