    I just purchased a 2007 DC TRD Sport. I'll post pictures later this week after the ARE CX topper is installed. I was giving the truck a thorough detail job this weekend and noticed that all the carpet had a slight stickyness to it, rather than soft and fluffy. All the carpet is clean, and the stickyness is even on the carpet under the seats. I wiped down with some warm water and Mothers upolstery cleaner, but the carpet is still sticky. Does anyone else have this? I was wondering if is some type of stain protectant like scotchguard.

    also has sticky carpet. Out of curiosity, I thought I would check it out and it has the same stickiness. Hers is also an 07. Must just be some coating Toyota put on the carpet that year.
