    This makes me glad I have a '17 without the mando TSS, haha. My wife's BMW has the lane keep assist, and I turn it and the auto start/stop BS off every time I drive it. Kind of annoying to have to do each time I get behind the wheel, but the car is super fun to drive so it doesn't bother me too much.

    I think for most of these safety/convenience nannies, it depends on the vehicle and the engineering behind it. We had a Volvo XC90 several years back that had the adaptive cruise, auto high beams, surround view camera, etc. All of those were pretty awesome and worked well, and my favorite was the surround cameras. It had the lane keeping thing too that basically would drive the car when adaptive cruise was on, but I never really used it due to lack of trusting the computer to actually keep the car in the lane at speed. All said, cool technology IMO but kind of takes the fun out of driving sometimes.

    I too am glad I didn't get an '18 I guess in retrospect. Granted the idiot proof stop aspect in theory would be great, especially in city driving!

    the idiot proof stop saved my ass when someone cut me off on 28.

    Oh totally...It would be the only technology safety driven upgrade I'd buy in for...my parents and sisters SUVs all have it.

    I have to agree with the annoying aspects of adaptive cruise control and lane departure tend to make the drives less enjoyable and more annoying with audibles and erratic brake and gas in the cruise control.

    The LDA system is great when you are half asleep on a super long drive. But its a situational use tool. Same with the cruise.

    This is how I look at it. TBH, I'd be more annoyed with all these systems if it weren't for the fact that most of them can be turned on/off at will.

    Macs custom tie downs, the 35”-37” size.

    I had the open bed with Y strap spare for that one fpk trip, and got another softopper after it. I couldn’t deal with camping+open bed+east coast wetness. Putting the spare here frees up a lot of room.

    Im thinking long term I may get a soft topper, and want to keep my options open in regards to tire storage relative to bed space

    The ST are so awesome. Weigh nothing, fairly versatile, and protect the gear in the bed.

    Very true.

    I had a recall on my TSS, to which was always on at start up (factory set up). After the fix/recall, The system was set to off by Toyota. if I want it on, I have to activate it at start up every time. Now, that said.. I do know the LDA is off. Not to sure on the PCS (Pre-Collision) as that still worked while it showed off. Makes me wonder how far turned off this stuff actually is.

    That's how I had mine replaced... The covered the dealership cost the first time then Safelite's glass and their re-calibration when it turned out Auto Glass Express in Chantilly fucked my shit up and it leaked like hell. Their "fix" was 10x worse than the original problem and I ended up having the cowl and interior A-pillar trim replaced when they glued them all to the windshield.
