    the vents, it does that with every car i've ever been in, when i turn it everything off i turn my air temp to cold.......

    your lights, turn the fogs off if there on, if people still get angry, get angry back and tell them that theirs are too bright, punch them and run

    i have the same two issues. for the vents im used to it, my 4runner did it to, i just turn the temp knob to the middle and forget about it. for the lights, i just dont really care, when i had my first car (95 ford taurus) i dealt with peoples lights in my eyes all the time.

    Have you turned the recirculation on? Recirculate pulls air from the cabin of the truck as opposed to outside. If it's off, I think air will still flow through the vents. On a wet day though, it can fog up your windows.

    Well for me after my lift I thought it would be a issue, had a few people upset, but ended up being how I or they turned toward my ride. Tested it on the road in my dads car and even the other day with two cop friends,
    they said no issue.

    Need to remember some people are just like that, know it doesn't help but that all I got.

    I have the same issue with my lights, I haven't had anyone flash their brights at me yet but I know I'm blinding people, when I pull up behind someone at a light and I light up the whole inside of their car I know my lights aren't adjusted right. I think when they do the TRD upgrade they don't adjust the lights afterwards. I may adjust my lights down a bit, but not much.

    by flashing my brights it would show them that what i had on before wasnt my brights. it wouldnt help anything maybe just make the people understand that im not riding around with my brights on
