    Just get in your truck and push the entire Assembly up. Then while holding it in position move mirror only so that it is usable. Mine is almost at the ceiling

    This ya neither tip nor trick. I was out wasting time on a Sunday. Best day to cruise a dealership with no hassling sales people. Happened to notice this awesome green TRDPRO Tacoma.
    It had the markings under the headlamps.
    It also had the forward camera mounted in the grille. Anyone know if this is standard or optional equipment on the new trucks or maybe just the Pro?

    3rd gens get an optional power lock and the oem kit is a cheap and easy installation. I'm planning to add the popper to compliment the power lock. It's a clean kit, I'll link it if I can find it easily.

    Trd OR led headlights have something else, a cornering light or something in its place, but those are stock LED headlights on trd pro. (That have the trd/pro script.)

    The forward camera may be that new feature that shows all around the truck on the radio screen. I think they call it panoramic view.

    I’m not sure it’s been mentioned or not but if you swipe the door handle where those two bars are, the truck will lock. Basically reverse of the truck unlocking when you touch the handle.

    I've been trying this since I saw this post and sure enough, a swipe is far more effective than just placing your fingers on it.

    Just found this, adjusted it, and now one minor complaint I had is gone. Thanks!

    Markings are Pro only.

    Camera is part of the Multi Terrain Monitor (MTM) available on the Pro and OR with Adv Tech package. The Sport can get the Panoramic View Monitor. I don't know the specifications of the PVM.

    Well yea. Since it says Pro, I would hope they only put that on that specific model...

    Wasn't sure if your question was tied into the headlights (even possible implication of variants for other trims) as well and it was easy enough to simply cover that in the post. Apologies if any offense was taken.
