GOOSE GEAR TACOMA DOUBLE CAB 2ND ROW SEAT DELETE FOR 2ND AND 3RD GENERATIONS
Toyota Tacoma second row seat delete for Double Cab trucks.
Note: Double Cab Tacoma's with Power Rear Sliding Windows have different back wall panel hardware configurations. Please carefully order the correct SKU for your Tacoma. Read at the bottom of this for instructions on installing power rear window spacers.
The second row seat delete system is designed to create a flat platform that you can use to secure your gear, for the dogs bed and can also be used to store your refrigerator of cooler. Later options will include a drawer system that will open out through the open vehicle door and will also include a Bullet Lined top plate for the drawer that has an access door so you can open the drawer and then reach through the drawer into the factory storage cubby below the rear seat.
40% and Non Subwoofer 60% seat deletes come with the back wall panel too. The Subwoofer version of the 60% delete does not come with the back panel.
Images shown include both the 40% and 60% options but are sold separately.
40% delete is for the drivers side of the vehicle and comes in TWO variations for all 2nd and 3rd gen rigs. The first variation is designed to work with earlier model year Tacoma's that do not have the power rear sliding window. The later model years frequently come with the power rear window and this model is slightly different to allow space for the sliding window mechanism.
The 40% Version measures 21-3/4" wide x 36" long
The 40% Version with Power Rear Window measures 21-3/4" wide x 35" long.
60% delete is for the passengers side of the vehicle and comes in THREE versions, one to go around the factory subwoofer and a second version for those wishing to remove or that do not have the factory subwoofer option, the THIRD option is the newest and is designed to work without the factory subwoofer, BUT WITH the power sliding rear window motor. We have found that most of the 2019 and newer Tacoma's have the power rear window option.
The Standard Version measures 33-1/4" wide x 36" long
The Standard Version with Power Rear Window measures 33-1/4" wide x 35" long.
The Subwoofer Version measures 33-1/4" wide x 28-7/8" long
Note: Drawer options must be purchased separately.
Instructions for removal of factory applied sound deadening material
In order for the Double Cab 60% seat delete to sit properly in your vehicle you must be sure that the area shown below in orange is flat and does not have additional sound deadening. We marked this out with orange tape for easy representation only. The removal of the sound deadening can be done with a putty knife or a scraping tool. Take care not to scrape or cut through into the vehicle paint. In some Tacomas we have found that when the Toyota factory applies the sound deadening material to the vehicle, they are occasionally applying this material over a larger area. The images below are of a vehicle that did not require any sound deadening material removal as the area was clear and ready for installation.
Measuring from the seat bracket holes which hold the 40% and the 60% seat. Be sure that you remove any built-up sound deadening material between the distances of 5-1/4 to 8-1/2 from the center of the seat mount holes as shown below.
Also, ensure that the front to back is clear of any sound deadening material as shown below. The area needs to be clear from the back wall of the cab of the truck and forward 5".
Tacoma Power Rear Window Back Wall Installation
In order to clear the power rear window motor, we are supplying 1" spacers and a different hardware kit with longer bolts. The spacers need to be held to the back side of the Back Wall Panel for installation. The easiest way to do this is to simply use some masking tape as shown and then place the panel in the vehicle and bolt through the spacers and into the factory bolt hole locations. See the images below.
