    You have several options here.
    1. http://bfy.tw/KljV
    2. Do what @JaCado said and trade it in on a 16' or 17'
    3. Turn the sensitivity all the way down
    4. Don't drive like an asshole!

    So I notice that if there is a problem with the TSS sensor, like it is blocked by bug guts for example, the cruise won't work. Is there a way to use the cruise without using the TSS?

    Pretty sure you can adjust the sensitivity on it at least.

    Hold the cruise button for 3 seconds. Then you'll have regular cruise, no adaptive.

    Lifted on 275/70/17
    While driving in a straight line while you feel the vibration put it in 4wd. If vibrations go away it's the drivers side needle bearing. A lot of people experience it after a lift. The best fix is an ECGS bushing to replace needle bearing.

    I had a problem with my TSS , dealer replaced the sensor. It threw a bunch of codes. Two months later it was acting up again, it would shut down in brite sunlight. Took it back to dealership, it was showing no codes. The dealership talk to Toyota Egineering Tech Support. They say it is seeing something it doesn’t understand and defaults to off. Cruise still works in the non-adaptive mode. It will also do this if dirty, mud, or covered in snow. AHH the learning curve of new tech.
