Default extended cab 2 door back area storage issue

I have only had my 2 door extended cab ranger for couple days now but do u guys think its a pain how you have little space to reach in your back area of your cab area, you have all that storage area back there but you have to push your seat all the way forward fold it down and you can barely reach in the back area. (for example i keep my school books behind my seat.) Is there something im missing ? havent had time to read trow the mannul yet. I love my truck and so far thats my only complant just wish it was a 3 door haha. any one else have this issue ?

the passenger seat should have a tilt/slide feature...i know my 4dr does...pull up on the recline lever and the back should tilt and the seat should slide(might need a little help sliding lol)

Both of my seats tilt and slide. It is difficult to get heavy items in or out.
At 6'-2" I can climb in the back on the pass. side to clean.

Just put your books in the bed. If they blow away, you didn't really need them anyway!

I'm 6 ft 3, and I've stuck my buddy Yo Yo back there, he's 6 ft 5, it sucks but it can be done. I put big stuff in the bed, but I also have a canopy lol

Slide and tilt works for most!
Forget the idea of the rear doors
A four door explorer truck would be the next size up.
I installed a small 12 inch toolbox in the bed to put mostly everything I need in it!
A bed extender helps carry everything else

You ever seen the scene in Ace Ventura where he gets stuck in the Rhino? That's what it's like getting out of the back!

My extended cab Ranger has 4-doors (two rear-hinged half-doors). I looked at a couple 2-door extended cabs and knew I didn't want to put up with that hassle.
