Anyone with TMI bucket seats and in-cab gas tank...

With TMI sport buckets and retaining the in-cab gas tank, is there any storage room left behind the seats? Their buckets and console look great together, but why they didn't design the console with at least one storage bin in it is beyond me. Install behind the dash AC and storage space gets real thin in the cab.

Re: Anyone with TMI bucket seats and in-cab gas tank...

You have brought up a good point. No I don't store a lot in my center console I have now but really was /am close to ordering either the full TMI Interior with buckets and console or a Chris Snowden full bench seat but I sure will miss not having a place to put my misc stuff I have in it now . Hummm..First thing I bought for mine was this center console and I love it . I do have some room in the glove box even with the vintage air , following

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get that console?

Bumping this thread. I know there are folks out there who have the TMI seats and this is a pretty simple and straightforward question. TIA

Re: Anyone with TMI bucket seats and in-cab gas tank...

After looking at a truck at caffine & Octane this weekend i am going to say there is really no room to put anything behind the seats such as speaker boxes etc. with in cab tank. I also have under my stock bench seat a a small amp and pioneer sub that i am not sure would work with how much lower the TMI seats/and mounting frame are, so that's another consideration i am trying to find a solution.

Re: Anyone with TMI bucket seats and in-cab gas tank...

I kind of figured that would be the case but it is nice to have some first hand feedback. Thanks for that.

I guess the only real option would be to relocate the gas tank and I just don't really care to do that. I do plan to go with the TMI interior and I have to wonder if their console could be modified to have a storage compartment but cutting into a brand new multi-$100 piece would take some guts. Maybe by the time I get around to buying the interior they will have come up with a console with a storage compartment.
