    This is probably already covered but I just found out that the steering wheel telescopes in and out when unlocked for adjustment.

    Number 54 is "You can hang the gas cap on the gas door by putting it between the prongs. Another solution is here: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...r-3rd-gen-today.399305/page-391#post-11833861"
    Are you talking about 63?
    "To start the truck without having your foot on the brake (useful for when a rider goes to the truck before you do and is sitting in the passenger seat) push the PTS button once and release, then push the PTS button and hold it till the truck starts (Approximately 10-13 seconds). This process was tested on a 2017 & 2016 Tacoma TRD Off Road with an Automatic Transmission and stillrequires the smart key to be in the vehicle in order to start."

    An alternative for raising the seat is a couple of used hockey pucks (son is a goalie) they are made from very dense rubber and 1” thick, drill a hole in the center and bolt them down using two new 10mm bolts that are a inch longer in length than the stock bolts and with the proper hardness. Problem solved inexpensively.

    Son keeps asking where his pucks went, I dunno son......

    I’ve stared at that picture until I’m dizzy. Where exactly is your beer stash hiding the background is to dark to tell

    Yeah sorry it was one of those where the flash kind of made it worse. Moral of the story: the cubby behind the seat is two beer cans wide.

    I drink cans exclusively for some reason. I'll actually pass on a beer that looks interesting because it's not in cans.

    That picture reminds me of the time my son got pulled over here in Ohio for drinking while driving. The policeman was pretty pissed when my son asked him what’s up. The officer said that he saw my son drinking a beer while driving. My son looked down at the open brown bottle said i’m sorry it was indeed beer of sorts and offered it up to the officer telling him that it was the best damn root-beer he had ever had. It was IBC that came in a dark colored bottle. After that they both had a good laugh.

    That is enough to make me cry. I'm truly saddened by you having such a horrible affliction. :mad:

    I toured a brewery one time that only canned or kegged their beer and someone on the tour asked why. It's because the cans are 100% sealed and block all light. It keeps the beer fresher longer. The can lining technology is so good that the beer is never actually touching aluminum so it doesn't get that aluminum flavor. I drink a lot of Sierra Nevada and some of their beers come in both bottles and cans. I always get the cans.

    If you are going to buy bottles, buy ones with taller packaging and brown or darker bottles. Green bottles are more likely to skunk the beer. All bottles have the potential to leak air or co2 at the cap.

    Plus I can take cans to the pool.

    True to all of this. I actually work in the coatings industry and know a little about can linings.

    They had PLASTIC bottles? I missed that. Actually I seldom drink beer anymore. I went on a low carb diet almost a year ago. I may have had 3 beers in that time. :cool:
