    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    I went with CH4X4. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017C2YT5A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's a little on the expensive side, but it fits the blank space nicely.

    Any of my fellow mil guys know that the wide mouth Gatorade (or in Afghanistan "Mega Sport") bottles are the best pee bottles...hell I even prefer bottles over piddle packs, they may be designed for that sole purpose but I've still seen tons of them spill, aircrew guys know whats up...

    Capt. and pilot on the towboats I use to work on if they didn't have a toilet in the wheelhouse they would piss in a ziplock bag and throw it out the door into the river.

    Post 1 says it was last updated on May 1st, 2017. Unless they didn’t update the update part. But pretty sure this isn’t happening any more.

    Getting old sucks ass and getting up to urinate is no bueno. They say the bladder holds about 14 oz I think, at full capacity, so you're good for at least 2 urinations. I wanna get a rig peeing while driving. That 5 minutes to get out at rest stops always seems to be more than 5 minutes.

    The more I see these factory issues the more I wonder if it was a great idea buying a Tacoma.....mine is still in delivery prep and a sunroof is being installed. Thankfully the dealer only has my $250 deposit. But JFC, what am I getting myself into?

    Any cool tweaks that can be done with a coding tool like rolling windows down with the key fob or turning off seat belt chimes or DRL?

    Carista works as well to turn off the seat belt chimes and a bunch of other customization's. I don't think you can set it roll down the windows with the key fob though.
