Hey folks! I have a 2011 Tahoe. Can someone tell me if the Tahoe has tie downs and where they are located inside behind the seats. I'd look myself but my truck is currently loaded with mesquite logs...mmmmm, smoking meats!!! I need to order something to haul water and will need to keep it secure.

As long as I'm posting, I'll ask this here in the wrong place just in case anyone has heard of this. My fuel tank is only taking 14-15 gallons at fill up. I don't mean it gets slow, it fills fine then stops and I can't get any more in. Gauge says full and will show normal gas use until I get to about 150 miles on the tank and then it reads empty during the next 100? I did loose a gas tank strap and had it replaced, in the middle of a cross-country trek, I did not notice the tank dropping at that time and the issue started a little after that incident.

Thanks,
Dave

there are triangle tie downs bolted onto the floor in the rear, can't really miss them unless someone removed them

Are there secondary tie downs toward the front? I travel over 10 miles of tough terrain to get to my place. Thanks for the info.

Thought about making a bracket that bolts on top of the rear seat mount that can be used as a tie down bar along the back of the 2nd row seats..
But I've been thinking more about a drawer setup lately....

The reason I went with the Tahoe, had a Sierra prior(easier to haul water), is that I'll be converting it to a camper. Nothing fancy as I usually tent camp but it's nice to have somewhere inside to sleep if I arrive someplace and it's too dark or the weather is crummy.

I have a GMT900 Yukon XL, the same generation as your Tahoe, and there are tie downs in the front, as well, behind the second row seats. When I go camping, I use a cargo net to hold everything in place, and I anchor the net to the 2 tie downs in the back and to the 2 tie downs in the front.

as joseph noted there are on the long wheel base, apparently not with the short wheel base, you might be able to rig something up with the back row seats out
