    It cracks me up with this “Oh, no!! Our TSS sensors won’t work!!

    It’s now 2017 and EVERYONE driving a Tacoma to this point has done just fine without TSS sensors. If the sensors were vital, you would not have the option to turn them off.

    Exactly. People have been driving trucks without fancy sensors since Christ was in short pants.

    You all have valid points on the mod part. My thing is the absolute potential for someone to get royally fucked over if shit gets sideways. The way our .gov and everyone else is about "safety" these days, I would not want to be the poor bastard in front of a judge or jury trying to justify my actions. Not saying it's wrong, just that I like my checking account and my freedom.

    I had a long talk with my local dealer about lifting and TSS. They put a ton of lifts on at the dealership. Needless to say they aren't happy about it..
    Sure you can try and remount the sensor, turn it off, etc. but Toyota corporate gave them a stern letter stating if they lifted any 18's full liability will be on them. And they strongly advise against Doing it. Even to the extent that just larger tires will affect the system.
    He thinks Toyota will eventually release a Techstream extension that will be able to "adjust" the TSS height... but who knows.

    If anything it will INCREASE sales. We live in an echo chamber here in TW. Contrary to what we might think, the majority of people who buy tacomas don't lift them or do CMCs trying to fit 285s or bigger tires. Most people buy stock and leave it stock. TSS will never go away.

    Everyone ?
    That is definitely false.
    They might be able to comment on that but can't for obvious reasons.

    Like TPMS? Tire Shops who do State Inspections won't mount tires missing sensors anymore where I live. That's why I use my garage those bisturds!
    OP get the truck you want. 2018 or whatever & lift it like a boss

    No lifts at all? What if you get bigger tires? That could affect the calibration right?

    Yes. My local dealer said even larger tires will affect it. This is reduculous.. there will have to be some type of work around

    Rest assured we will have a few guinea pigs to test this lift/TSS crap out soon and provide real-world results. I will be one of them in the next few months. It will be either proven to be no issue or we will find minor modifications to correct any minor issues. The world will not end and the earth will continue to rotate.
