    Hi Folks,

    Sorry for the dumb question, but I'm wondering if there's a trick to removing the stock bottle jack from behind the rear passenger seat. My 2015 double cab came with an underseat storage compartment when I bought it new (not sure if they come like that with the TSS package or all SR5 double cabs). But the storage blocks removal of the bottle jack. The bottle jack's base is too wide and won't fit as I try to squeeze it out between the folded-up rear seat and the storage compartment. I tried different configurations of twisting and angling the bottle jack with no success. Is there a trick to getting it out without having to remove the storage compartment itself?

    Huh. I've got a DC, underseat storage and have pulled the jack out. I'll check in the morning, see what's up.

    One of the vertical panels lifts out, it just pulls up and out. I think it's the rearward one if I remember right. I thought there was an instruction sticker somewhere back there on how to remove it but I could be wrong.

    Thanks guys. Didn't realize there's a vertical panel that lifts out. I'll check for it later today.

    Yep, rear panel lifts straight up. Have to pull on it hard to get it going, though. Then snap it back a bit hard to seat it back in. Thanks again for the help everyone.
