Not to mention, you could see all pressures on-the-fly to make sure they are the same for better mpg and handling.
You could buy a stand-alone system like this and mount it in your Tacoma... The problem is that they are in the $500-$1000 price range depending on the number of tires you want to monitor. For that kind of cash I'll walk around the truck with a tire gauge. LOL.

Yeah, me too.... But since Toyota insists on monitor tire pressure why do it half-way?

Although thinking about it more, it would probably be a pain in the ass for the average Joe to maintain, and lead to more problems at non-dealer tire shops.
