If the human is less than 4 foot tall/100lbs then yes for short trips. Treat is more as a dry toolbox. with a foam pad Toyota called a seat.

I've crammed people back there many times. Calling shotgun is serious business when I'm driving :D

I would not reccomend it for a long trip, but around town pretty much anyone can fit back there for a few minutes. Hell, I'm 6'4" and I've been back there.

Yea, it was real fun once. My little brother who is about 6'1, and his buddy, who is .... well fat, pissed me off once. I went with the wife to pick them up in my 01 ex cab instead of our SUV. They were 16 year old smart ass kids at the time, and really pissed me off that day. They had to face each other and sit kind of sideways back there cause I would not move my seat foward. My wife had to because the fat one was behind here.. Anyway, I would floor it without notice and their heads would about break the back glass. The supercharger helped out a bunch too. Again, do not expect that because its "possible" that its practical. Its a real PITA getting any adult back there.

I spent a lot of time lookin into this. But i was dealing with the 07 xtracab. Even it is not big enough for much more then short rides arround town nothing major and it is a far cry bigger then 95 - 04 xtracab. If you are going to have to move people often and you care about their comfort double cab.

My kids used to love my '97 Extra cabbut it got a little tight as they got older but had room for carseats when they were little..with no junior people to put back there i was amazed at how much stuff I could cram back there. Good luck!

going to a party one nite there was 5 of us in my taco and it has the front bucket seats. 3 guys were in the back 2 over 6'2" and 1 was 5'11" +/-, and a case of bush light. in the buckets you had me and another boy which are both over 6'2" also, it wasnt a bad ride cause we only made a short trip, but after a while the X-cab space does cramp ya up.

Both my Kids love it. Plenty of room. Even my wife at 5'4" can ride on the passenger side no problem, if she moves to my side I have to move the seat up a click or two which is NOT uncomfortable for me (6ft).

I would say when the kids get bigger I will probably move to a doublecab especially now that you can get them in a 6ft bed. My toolbox and transfer tank take up room in the 6ft bed and the earlier doublecabs only had the short bed so I would not have had any bed space for my tools.

Fot long trips my wife has a nice comfortable Pathifnder that is loaded with DVD etc, so mostly we take that.

Technically its XtraCab

Yes- human beings can fit in the rear space-
THe problem is the seating is so upright as well as foot space is limited- SO its uncomfortable for extended drives-

I fit 3 adults back there when we were going water skiing- (No one wanted to drive a 2nd vehicle)

Small kids seem to like it.

Carseats will fit back there - but its far from optimal.

Looks like you don't have much of a choice with your restrictions

198X - 2004 = 'XtraCab'
2005+ = 'Access Cab'

The rear seats are only adequate for 'no other option' transport of adults. In 22 years of driving XtraCabs I've put people into the rear seats exactly twice.

The second last time I went to Moab I rode in the back on the way there with my leg in an immobilizer and it actually wasn't that bad. The drive from here to Moab took us 22 hrs (straight through) from driveway to campground. :eek:
