    To what? "Let the backseat"?

    Clarify.

    I got two kids in car seats and I got long legs, when I set the seat where it's comfortable for me to drive there is no room behind the driver back seat for the car seat

    Not really anything you can do to get the rear seats to slide. They're bolted in to the floor in 2 pieces, the lower cushion and the seat back. They seem like 2 very location-specific pieces.

    You can recline the rear upper sections can't you?

    I'd try that...

    You must be a tall fella,

    Mine are on tracks. Is that not normal? I can move them forward and back.
    I'm 6'3" and have no issues.

    you have the 3rd row seating right? I think the 2nd row only go forward and back if the 4runner came with the 3rd row seating option.

    Yeah I do. Didn't know that was different but it makes sense. They slide forward so that the back row can fold flat with them
