    Hi all. New here. I just got a new company truck issued to me. It's a 2020 double cab SR5 4x4. It has manual seats. This is the first Toyota for me.

    Question - is there some trick to raise or lower the driver's seat or is it just not possible on this truck? Pretty much all the other vehicles I've driven in the last 10 years or so with manual seats had a separate crank/jack lever to adjust the seat height. I only see the recline lever on this one.

    Thanks.

    There is a lever in front of the recline one. You have to push down to raise one notch at a time.

    SR5s with cloth seats probably don't have all the adjustment options.

    I think you're right. This seat isn't terrible but I'd like to raise it some.

    You have an SR5 or SR? I have a 2018 dbl cab SR5. This is what my seat looks like. Can you push down on that lever? My fj seats are like that.
