    Okay, am I a complete idiot, or does the back of the rear seat not fold forward on a 2015 SR5 CM? I don't see anything in the owners manual for it, and I can't find a latching mechanism either.

    If not, how in the world would you get the spare tire tools out, if you needed them?

    3rd gens do not. Toyota changed this design with the 3rd gens...they claimed it had something to do with the location of the airbags IIRC.

    Spare tire tools are behind..you can get to it via the latch on top of the seats.

    "Latch on top of the seats"? Are you talking about the strap/loop that's under the headrest? I tried tugging on that (the way a Tacoma rear seat folds forward), but nothing happened. Maybe I didn't pull it hard enough?

    They are accessible from under the seat. Fold bottoms up and easy access.

    I was disappointed to see this...I believe the DC more storage options back there than the CM. It doesn't make sense to me.

    The DC does have more storage options than the Crew, but not more than my 09 Tacoma AC. Go figure? Plus you have to purchase a special storage box to go under the DC's rear seat, which I did. Can never have too much storage space. Seems like it's always not enough.
