    Other than buying smaller coffee cups what are you guys/gals doing to remedy the problem of small cup holders?

    I have a few yeti cups and only one fits in the cup holders.

    Just put the cup between your legs like we used to have to back before cup holders were a thing in vehicles...

    I had a 40oz hydroflask that fit really well in the cupholders of my old truck but didn't fit on the taco. My issue with the bottlepro was that it didn't stay upright with such a tall bottle. I ended up getting a smaller hydroflask that fit in the taco's cupholders and I would put the 40oz one in the back seat for refills on long roadtrips.

    Is it odd that they don’t have removable inserts that can be be easily cleaned?

    The 2011 ram company truck has that, I was surprised the taco doesn’t.

    I use one of these for my 32oz hydro and it works just fine.
    else I guess you could just take a hole saw and bore out the cup holder

    Am I the only one who thinks it's odd that there are a zillion (approx.) cup holders and they didn't think to make even one of them a different size?

    Those work great as long as you use the sleeve that comes with it. I found that our cupholders are inbetween the pre-set sizes, but if you double-over the sleeve it fits nice and snug.

    Yeah, this has been my experience as well. Folding the sleeve over on itself to increase the snug-ness of how it fits in the stock cup holder really helps.

    Even still, the 40oz bottle would rattle around a bit so I put a few strips of grip strip things (leftover from some Ikea curtain rod mounts) on the inside of the larger cup holder to keep the hydroflask from vibrating. Used some super glue along with the adhesive backing to ensure it doesn't come off when using the cup holder. So far so good!

    Ugh god. Disappointed. I clicked this thread hoping to find actual small cup holders. I have the opposite problem, I need to SHRINK my cup holders to accommodate my finer tastes

    I don’t understand why everything is so huge these days.

    Japanese like small cans of green tea. Much better than 44oz big gulps

    I think I have 64 cup holders in my AC. I lost count. I have a VHF radio in one of them. A neck gaiter in another. And I think a Gopro camera is inside of another.

    My hydro flask rolls around everywhere.

    Has anyone installed a cargo net on the passenger side floor area?
