    1. Damn transmission issue when slowing down, then having to accelerate how it revs up high then grabs.
    2. The seats have horrible support for your thighs and back.
    3. Drivers window rattles like crazy when only half way rolled down.
    4. Loose feeling in the steering when hitting bumps or going down dirt roads.
    5. It dents so easy because the metal is so thin.
    6. Why mount the frame to big blocks that extend off the frame, WHYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!
    7. Weird suspension geometry that is not copasetic to lifting. And aftermarket control arms move the tire too far back to compensate, which is ugly looking and causes too much rub in the rear of the fender area. No offense anyone I am just saying.

    I guess this is about it, if Toyota would fix these issues they would have a damn near perfect truck.

    Did you test drive it before you bought it?

    Seems all those issues still didn't prevent you from buying it.

    So why'd you buy it?

    2. The seats have horrible support for your thighs and back. I bought a lumbar pillow, about $10 at parts store or Walmart. Problem solved.
    5. It dents so easy because the metal is so thin. This I have no solution for. Maybe be very careful but still shit happens. Rear bumper dented at No, Zero, Sip, Nada MPH backing up. If the bumper gets too bad maybe one of the bumpers just posted on TW but it was like $850. Acorns denting the hell out of my hood even with a car cover on.
