    Just brought home yesterday my 2008 Double Cab and behind the rear seats is this cup like plastic holder that is removable. Does anyone know what it is for? I tried to put a hitch ball on it but it looks like it will wobble and irritate the crap out of me. Any ideas?

    I fits my maglite nicely but it is an ineffecient design since it can't be mounted at the edge of the bin s it takes up alot of place. Still a nice thought

    I recently found out that my cupholder was mobile. That just made my day that I could incorperate big square boxes in my cupholder and not worry about them spilling? I fell in love all over again!

    The ring behind the seat is for a flashlight (according the manual). Mine rattled far more than I could tolerate and is now mounted to my seat.

    I have yet to adjust the cup holder but may because it is too big as it stands now. Shifted to one side, it would work well as a cup holder with some "storage" on the other side.


    I was pretty excited when I learned the steering wheel is telescopic. Having it scoped out made it much easier to enter and exit.

    Finally, you may not be aware there is a nice spot to hold the headrest when the rear seat is folded down. Click for picture.

    Hmm box wine...not a bad idea at all! You don't need to wire it to the front since it is already there. Just tap an IV directly into your blood stream.
    Note: For passengers, and off-road use only!

    Nice headrest....rest....I nver noticed that, however, i don't usually have my seats folded down for anything.

    a rubberband around the flashlight and the holder stops the rattling very well...i have enough room in that compartment, so i didn't do the maglite beside the driver's seat mod
