Default folding rear seats?

Just curious, my crew cab rear seats fold up to access the storage under the seat. Does the rear fold down? If it does I haven't figured it out yet? Can someone help me out please? The trim level is ST Express.

There is a tread on the site to do this I followed the tread but don't know where it is search for it.
it consist of putting a 3/4" block under the rear seats lifting them when you fold the seat bottom up it gives just enough to lower the seat.
Here are my seats I painted my blocks black to blend in with the brackets

What''s the purpose of folding it down, if it's not the flat floor seats? Can you fit anything behind the seat?

Probably would help with cleaning the rear window. I have a hell of a time trying to clean mine with the seats and head rests in the way

Try removing the headrests. I found that this allowed enough space to properly clean the inside of the rear slider and worked just fine. At first, I looked into how to lay the seats forward for ease of access while cleaning, but decided against doing a mod just for the sheer fact of cleaning. Removing the headrests works just as well and no mod was required. Just my two cents.

You can fold them if you:

1. Add spacers under the seat
2. Trim the hooks behind the seat back (there's a how-to somewhere).

I cut my hooks down, because I didn't want to raise my seats. It works perfect, and is a must if you have aftermarket audio installed behind the seats.
