    Right now I have a 2019 and put a Tekonsha P3 in the cubby with ESP mounting plate. When I get a 2020, I have a MESO replacement ready for the left side with 4 button spots up top so I can shift over the 2 up there and put in a Redarc with a button mount/panel.

    @Sliding West
    Here is the general layout of the buttons.

    @deusxanime
    Looks like there is a blank spot for your configuration. I already have a Tekonsha P3. I'm hoping I can use it again. Might have to do some serious pondering to come up with something.
    I wish they put a panel in for extra buttons or a brake controller specific which would save me the head ache of thinking about it haha

    @MESO has too much stuff on their site that I want so I have to be careful over there haha
    I want a lot of things that aren't available any as they were limited runs. Oh well, maybe there will be something better later on.

    Check out the Market Place often - people sell MESO items all the time. If you are looking for something specific post a WTB - I did that for the Total Tail Light Stage I Kit and Stew (MESO) messaged me that he had an extra if I wanted to buy it. You never know what will happen!

    I installed the OEM Bed Step this afternoon. Easy to do - just make sure you have a 6" extension for your ratchet. Functional and tucks away nicely.

    When I ordered the Bed Step I also bought 3 of the blue trim clips for when I do the MESO Headlight Trim Plates just in case I break one...or two...or.. Waiting for a warm day to try that one.

    Sorry, I live on a dirt road so the truck is almost always dusty or muddy.

    Hey do you have a photo size comparison on the new shift knob vs the TRD PRO's? Is it the same size or smaller? I didn't like how big the TRD PRO was so I got rid of it lol

    What was the quantity of sound deadening you used to do this? Cost?

    I purchased 72sq ft total but I still have probably ~20+ ft left over. I personally like to use a lot of material but 36ft would probably do all 4 doors if you were cutting into pieces. I coated the entire “inner door” and then used pieces around the speaker and on that middle section, if that makes sense?

    Thanks for that @StormTroop425
    The same product in 150mil is available for cheaper... Based on your experience - would that work?

    The blank spot there is where the Clutch Start Cancel button goes on the 6MT, which is what I have and plan on getting again when I get the 2020, so no go for me.

    If you do want to continue using your Tekonsha P3, MESO does now have that as an option in his custom panels. Here's a look at one that has it.

    Yeah those are the ones it came with. Maybe just a Toyota Canada thing, just like the lack of rear parking sensors? Or maybe I should have had a peek at the 2019 on the lot to see if they got swapped out. Not that it really matters, one of the first things I did was swap em out for some Huskyliners.

    I’m not claiming to be an audiophile or anything but I have used that before on my last truck in certain spots and it will work, however, it’s a different type of material, foam vs butyl. If I remember right, the foam is good for just sound deadening whereas butyl is better for vibrations/rattles and a bit of sound deadening, so each has its purpose.

    The way I used that 150mil last time was putting it on top of the 80mil butyl I had already laid down. I only used it on the rear wall and under the carpet in places where it wouldn’t be too thick. I think that is how you ideally use it but again, I could be wrong.

    You could use the foam on the plastic weather barrier and maybe around the speaker but I would think that foam really wants to stay dry for optimum lifespan so keep it in the dry places only. I can also see it losing its adhesive backing if any moisture got underneath it. The butyl is basically like tarpaper so it is better suited for the inner door and anyplace that might get wet.

    Just my .02!

    That's a rear window switch blank isn't it? Does that accept regular buttons too? Or if you add any more do you plan on relocating your window switch over there from the center?

    Also, I like the look of the Redarc there and how it fits in. Definitely going that route next time!

    Yes, the regular small blank fits in. Still considering moving the rear window over to there. All mods are on hold until the wife goes back to teaching in the fall.

    That might not be a bad idea to move it over there. Closer to arms reach for some, I am sure. I'd like to relocate the USB port for the radio. Why there is only one port that leaves a cable running all over the place is poor design.
    Thinking of pushing the usb port back through the trim and hiding it and running a USB cable to the console armrest and have it pop out there. So it is cleaner.

    Installed the MESO Red Start/Stop button, black surround ring and the black rings for the Climate Control Knobs. Now the 4WD selector sticks out....:rofl:

    I added these a few weeks ago, too.
