    Have a question for you guys. Many cars have AC vents that can move as well as close. As far as I can tell, my Tacoma is not one of those. Are there any differences in models or years that would allow me to fully close the passenger side vents? Or a mod to fully turn the direction wheel so that it completely blocks off air flow? If I am driving by myself, I like closing off the passenger side vents so that all the air is directed at me. Thanks.

    The vents close. Just point the fins all the way down.

    Well dont I feel stupid now... I initially tried to point them down, but felt resistance and just assumed they couldnt move any more. Thank you and disregard my ignorance!
