Anyone know why just the manual Tacomas and FJs have the clutch cancel switch?

Is is there for offroad situations. Lets say you are on a steep incline and you stall. If you push the clutch to start you can roll back into some trouble. You push the button so you can start without having to push the clutch.

if your clutch fails, you can start the vehicle in gear and shift clutchless to get home.

That's a pretty clever gambit. By using this technique, you immediately got the right answer to your question on the very first reply - as opposed to the usual litany of five or six posts telling you to search, rtfm, etc... before someone grudgingly coughs up the answer.

The validity of your comment is questionable.

The clutch start cancel switch does not replace clutch function. All this switch does is bypass the requirement of the pedal being fully depressed to be able to start the engine. You've always been able to drive home not using a clutch, whether you use this button or not, though I wouldn't recommend it.

In those circumstances, with a manual trans, on a steep incline, and having to start the engine while you hold the truck in place, you have three pedals to deal with.

The clutch start cancel switch allows you to use your left foot for the brake and your right foot for the accelerator pedal.

I am no trying to be a wize ass, but I don't pump the gas in my fuel injected truck to start it. I also have a parking brake that needs no foot on it at all to hold my truck still. I just think it makes more sense for it to let one start the truck without having to get in the truck. Maybe I am wrong, but I don't need it to help start while being on a steep hill is all.

In some situations rolling back could mean you will flip onto your lid when offroad. It isn't just because it is steep.

Really I think everyone with a manual transmission should be in their vehicle when they start it because I have seen too idiots start in gear only to hit the car in front of them.

fair enough. Neutral safety switch solves that problem. I still don't get the hill start thing, but ,,ok

Yeah I don't get what some of you are talking about! You cant start the truck in gear with the clutch out! You can use it to crawl up a hill but you will likely blow the starter, and will not actually start. I did it once with an older car.
I use it to start the truck quick from outside the truck. Yes people do jump thier trucks into sh#t doing it but you have to forget to put the break on and forget to take it out of gear, so to those people, you might want to get an auto. Anyways, everyone I know who drives stick uses the ebrake every time they park. Too easy to nock it out of gear.

I can start the truck with my left foot on the clutch, my right foot on the brake. I won't roll back or forward now while I start the truck. When it's started, I can switch my right foot to the gas pedal while I ease the clutch pedal out, in gear of course, to get the truck moving again after a stall (simple hill start). I hope this clears up the issue of not needing it to be able to start the truck on an incline.(steep or not) Fuel injected cars and trucks don't require pumping of the gas pedal to start UNLESS you already pumped it and flooded it. Then you hold the pedal down to the floor until it starts to clear the flood. I can do that with my foot on the gas and another on the clutch with my e-brake engaged, without rolling. What am I missing here?

And again it is completely different when you are offroad. Lets say you are inches away from a cliff and rolling back means you will meet your maker. You push the switch and turn the key without pushing the clutch. The truck rolls forward and the engine starts as you roll away from the cliff. You get home and you bang your wife or gf or both. Yes you can do it without the fancy button but one wrong move and you are over the cliff.
