    Looking to get more out of the interior on my '05 Tundra. As stated in the title, it's the Regular Cab so just two doors with the bench seat and the arm rest folds down from the middle of the bench.
    That said, does anybody know of any aftermarket arm rest that seconds as a storage container? Something that would also fold back up into the seat just as the stock one does, but capable of storing things inside as well?
    Feedback's greatly appreciated. Thank y'all!

    Access cab bucket seats bolt in and the holes can be drilled for the console mounts. There is also the access cabs split bench that has storage too you’d need 05-06 seats

    Interesting, okay. Yeah gonna be a rough time finding seats for an older Tundra. Be a shame to replace the entire assembly, though. The rest of the bench looks great still. Thanks.

    I swapped in buckets for my tundra. But they’re from an 04.. took some modifications to make it all happy. BUT. The good news is, the regular cab does have the holes for the seat. And the nuts are on the floor pan for the center console, the panel above the lower pan needs to be drilled to access them.
    Buckets were a huge upgrade, but mostly because my bench was destroyed when the truck was rolled

    That’s the “upgraded” bench.

    So this is the inside of mine. May do like empty_lord said throw buckets into it in place of the bench, but they'd have to be in good condition for a solid price.

    See that’s nice lol crazy to me how Toyota didn’t take advantage of that for all models you’d think they’d implement it, I mean why not right?

    This style bench from an 05-06 access cab will fit your truck too
