    Seeking upgrade feedback with a little different focus. Wondering what "dog" related upgrades/mods other's have to done to your trucks to #1) provide wear/tear protection and #2) ensure the comfort of your 4 legged passengers? We've got two German Shepherds that are pretty much our only passengers that ever ride in back of the cab. I've debated on just removing the rear seats and leveling out the entire rear floor. I'd also like to find a nice sturdy spill proof water bowl I can somehow mount in the back so it doesn't slide around like my current cheap plastic one that sits on the mat. So far here is what I've done:
    • Weathertech front/rear liners (helps keep rear floor clean and mitigates amount of hair sticking to carpet)
    • Center console cover (prevents leather from getting scratched)
    • Added strip of clear film on exterior rear doors below the windows (prevents paint from getting scratched when dogs hang out the window)
    • Vinyl wrapped forward plastic portion of rear door armrests (prevents scratch marks in plastic)
    • Never ending vacuuming of hair, interior cleaning, and air fresheners!

    1) I was going to get something like this for my back seat: https://www.amazon.com/Vailge-Water...uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl Or...Just put both rear seats up and put down a big blanket

    2) As my pup gets older (he is 10) I am thinking of ramps: https://www.tundras.com/threads/opinions-suggestions-wanted-re-nerf-bars-and-dog-legs.58030/

    3) Other dog related post you may find interesting :

    BTW: Thinking of getting side boards or skid plate to help people get in the Tundra. But they have to be dog friendly. One member mentioned his pups paws went through the slots and got stuck. Something to keep in mind.

    This guy has the right idea. This is how I travel with my dog. I keep the crate strapped down into the corner, so even in a worst-case type of situation, we'll all be safer.

    So I got some of these straps for my truck. They’re sleek and work great. It will keep the dog in his seat and will restrain them in an accident. I love to use the in the summer when I have to run into a store or something and my dogs with me. I tether my dog to the rear seat middle head rest and roll all four windows down. Stays coolish for the dog and she won’t jump out the window. This only works if you don’t store anything valuable in your cab.

    my other dog mods are leather seat covers, full coverage rubber floor mats, and a small rubber bowl that fits the cup holder of my bench seat console.

    The OP made mention of looking for dog friendly side steps for passengers to get in and keep dog paws/legs out

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I was looking at the RSD2 as they look like the don't have nearly the gap my OEM need bars dog. Our new pup sometimes hits the bar on her way up into the cab.

    I got rock sliders with full top plate. Since they snug up under the kick plate of the doors there’s no gap. Not sure about side steps. My Toyota OEM side steps had a big gap as they are actually steps and lower than sliders to allow you to step up onto them. Would not recommend. My dog slipped a time or two before I got the sliders.

    Have you ever tried a pumice bar? They work great at extracting hair.
