    I don't believe so. I know the CrewMax rear seats fold down (Double Cab seats fold up).

    How can the area behind the seat back (vertical piece) be accessed?

    I just looked around in the dark with a flashlight and it appears it will require unbolting. However if no one around here knows I can almost guarantee the local car audio shop will know what is required. I for one will be stopping by mine tomorrow.

    As you move the bottom seat up and down the top part moves as well, When the seat is up the back portion is to close to the back of the cab to put anything back there.

    You think so? I think there's ample room to mount amps back there. Granted it'll be tight but definitely possible. It appears there's around 4" between the seat back and wall at the bottom and even more when the seat back is down in the normal position. I don't know what's under that rubbery mat hanging there but I will find out very soon .

    How many bolts is it? I want to install a seat cover and it requires that it goes over the back of the rear seats in the double cab.

    you have to mod the clips on the back wall. You have to cut them smaller so when you lift up the bottom part of the seat the top part moves up and unlatches from the wall.

    Yeah, it was me. I know a few others have blazed this trail before me but its a simple mod. To take the back seats out undo the floor bolts (9/16). There are also some (9/16) bolts on the lower back wall and a couple holding the seatbelts to the floor. Lift the seats straight up at first to make sure the hooks release. Have a friend help you take them out of the truck, theyre not heavy just very tough to get out alone.

    Once out fold them in half and find the 4 black hooks on the back of the upper rests. Near the bottom of the hooks you'll see some very small holes. Make your cut right above that hole (above meaning the hole should come off too). Cut at a slight angle, the same angle that was there to begin with. Put the seats back in and give it a try. You'll notice that when you raise the lower part up, the upper part slides up as well. When it gets to a certain point the upper portion will now fold down. Took me about 20 minutes to do this mod. Sorry I didnt take any pictures, but someone here did when they did it. Maybe he'll chime in.

    For those wondering, there is plenty of room for amps back there. I have 2 amps, 2 crossovers, Sirius tuner and 2 distribution blocks going back there and they are fitting just fine.
