    Just talked to Toyota. The resaon for this is because some dumbass could not properly re-install the factory floor mat. Was told the mat moved/slipped on the person when driving and there was an accident. This is what I was told anyways.
    On my front floor mats, there are two tabs and two holes on each. Stick the tabs in the holes and it is secured, at least on my 2008 TRD Tacoma.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.

    I figured that. Speaking for my truck only, I am guessing that all 08 4wd TRD Tacomas are made with tabs for the mats. If that's the case I find it silly to include that model truck if that model is not the one with issues and if it is it is because they could not figure out the tab/hole installation.

    Cheers!
