It really bothers me that the body line on the doors doesn’t continue on the front of the bed 😡😡😡. Any idea why Toyota did this?

Hey, any of you guys have seat jackers for the front of your driver seat? I've had them in mine for month or two and I love them, but my drivers seat creaks like a son of a gun. Anyone else have that issue? Not really a big deal...turn the music up and you can't hear it. Just wondering if there's an easy solution.

Is it metal-on-metal where the jackers meet the seat rails? Everything tightened down to spec?

Add rubber washers on both sides and some white lithium grease

I’ve had mine on for at least a year and have never had any creaks or squeaking or anything. Make sure mating surfaces are clean and retighten everything

So I’m starting to do a full interior blackout. Can this grey trim in the cluster be removed to be painted?

How do tacoma passing drivers acknowledge each, like the jeep people?
I do a little wave kinda like Jeep people do, some other Tacos in my area picked it up and do it to each other now :)

Same. Some people started waving back - mostly the same drivers on our ways to and from work.

I want to do this, too, but I'm afraid I'd get a repetitive motion injury. There's everything from a T100 to 3rd gens all over my neighborhood! But I do feel like the Jeepers have the sense of community thing down, for sure.

I have them. No noise at all.
