    Yeah, I believe there is a way to wire it to work also, IIRC. And I've read the few people who've done it, have not had any issues with heat or bulb life. :cool:

    I know its been a few months since you posted this but can you provide the details? I'm not really bothered by the light being on all the time but if there is an easy solution I'd like to hear it.

    Has anyone with a 6 speed taken out their center cup holders and put in something else?

    The cup holders take up so much space, and it just looks like it was an afterthought to fill up the space, and I don't need 5 drink holders in a 1.5 ft. radius.

    Thought it would be nice to just have like a flat rubberized tray to lay my phone or something.

    Haven't done it yet, but plan to put a switch or two over the "cans only" pocket on the top left. At least that will be functional for something other than slowly collecting garbage and dog hair! :rolleyes:

    I have a 2012 Tacoma double cab 6cyl with a electric brake booster. We replaced the booster and need help to reconnect the brake lines. The manifold on the booster has 4 holes with each hole having a number from 1-4. Which line goes where?

    Anyone have a picture of their connected lines?
