Default Ext cab owners- Biggest guy you fit in jump seats

Even for someone of smaller stature, those jump seats are no comfortable ride. I'm curious to see who decided to shove the big guy back there and if there's any stories attached (got in, couldn't get out?).






I managed to get my 6'2" 285lb friend in the back, laughing the whole time, but I'm hoping for the sake of entertainment there's some ridiculous story out there

I've put my buddy back there he's 6'4'' everyone actually says they like the ride better if the front seats are pressing against there shoulders so they don't bounce around as much.

put my buddy who is 6'6" he fit with one sub under the jump seat and another 12" big box in on the other side. People underestimate how much room is back there

My wife's sat in the back of mine for 45 minutes once. 5'11" 210lbs, took him about hour to walk straight afterwards. I don't think comfortable was the word he used to describe the experience.

Less comfortable than a flight with two fat guys, I think.

Put a buddy of mine who is almost a 300lb football player back there. He said he could feel the jumps eat bending.

Are you asking for answers from people who have the four door ext cab or regular version? I do not think you could squeeze a 300 Lb guy back there with out the extra doors, but would love to watch it be attempted. I have had three regular sized people in mine. There complaint was getting in and out between the seat and door. Maybe that part sucked so bad the ride did not bother them..?

My buddy attempted to get back there once out of a pure joke. He's 365 5'11. Got half way in and got stuck. About near ripped his arm off trying to pull him back out. But I also had no strength cus I was laughing so hard. It was hilarious. I used to have a picture but lost all of my photos a few months after it happened or the rest of y'all could've enjoyed it as well!

i'm 6'4", 175 lbs... took a roadtrip to whitecastle (because I had never had whitecastle before) in the rear jumpseat of my buddie's '98 ext cab... 'bout a 30 minute drive one way. and honestly it wasn't that bad... not good, lol but way better than the middle of a 60/40 ranger bench seat!

Yea my buddy said he couldnt get the door to close so i took a step back, lined myself up, feigned a sprint and sure enough that door closed pretty damn quick. Funny what that motivation can do
