Ford's stupid cheapness on the rear seat makes it impossible for me to store a cased hunting rifle the same way as I could in the Tacoma, for example, and contain the rest of my equipment. I need the rear seat to turn into a platform. Trust me, I've gone to each dealer with my rifle cases, all the stuff I do not want in the bed even under a cover. The Tacoma easily won out, the ZR2 was workable just less preferred. The Ranger... I'd effectively have to remove them... a joke.
