Unfortunate changes for the 2013 model

They got rid of the two open storage bins in the truck bed above the wheel wells! I don't understand why they would get rid of those. They were very nice to have when truck camping - they were like bedside tables.

Anyone notice other changes that I may have missed? (other than front end looks, awesome touch screen stereo)

HAHA - I can't tell if the three dots mean sarcasm, but I do miss those bins. It took me about 2 minutes with the new bluetooth touchscreen and backup camera and I was over the bins. Living in the rust-belt, I am sooooooo happy to have a clean truck with a black, freshly painted frame.

No sarcasm. I really miss those bins.

I camped this weekend with a truck tent on the bed, and then I REALLY missed them.

They are part of the ultra-exclusive TRD Sport package.

My truck is Canadian too - i know sometimes the packages are different but that usually amounts to us getting less options.

Homelink is the 3 buttons on the rearview that can open your garage doors

he means the ones without doors/covers.

they are more of a "pocket" and are above the wheel wells, not low down and towards the tailgate........

if that makes sense
