    Crew Cab rear seat foot room

    This may sound strange but is there any way to increase the foot room under the front seats for rear seat passengers. Damn it's cramped under there. Haven't bought one yet but it's certainly a sticking point for me.
    It's almost pitiful.

    I routinely hear from my kids age 13 to 21 how spacious the backseat really is in a crew cab

    Sit in the back seat of a quad cab and you will marvel at all the leg room in the crew cab.

    Try searching for something like seat lift kit. I have seen something like this before but this one is for a different brand truck:

    Drivers Seat Lift Kit 2015 Silverado GMC Sierra Truck " how to raise your seat " | eBay

    You might be able to use some unistrut or square tubing depending on how creative and handy you are and how much you love your passengers.

    There's more rear leg room in my Ram CC than my Tahoe.

    I agree, it isn't the most spacious and I don't understand why they didn't make it so you had some behind the seat storage. My 2008 Tundra crewmax had ALOT more room in the back. That is about the only thing I miss. I wouldn't consider a quad cab.

    The driver's seat raises electronically actually and that helps. Passenger side doesn't and that's where someone would sit mostly in the back. Reminds me of how American cars were in the 70s...

    Read my post. I didn't say leg room. I said foot room.
    Get in the back on the passenger side and sit there... For a while... If you're over 6' tall.

    If the back seat is cramped, it is the quad cab. My buddy who is 6'5" finds the back seat leg room of the crew cab comfortable.
