    yes, @TWTaco explained it to me when I got the tune. I drove home on i5 that weekend and tried it. Sure as can be, in radar cruise, it’s that sluggish, gear hunting, dud no one likes. Pop into constant and bam, you can immediately feel the Pro tune take over. Night and day!

    well, messing with the tune on the radar system could have some negative safety consequences. Such as the vehicles reaction time when letting off throttle and applying brakes.

    While I definitely like the truck, there are several things about the truck that I find to be very stupid. In addition to the two things above, pointing the tag lights at the backup camera, and not making the default cruise a configurable setting are among those things. Also, I see lots of people talking about putting in "seat jackers" but am I the only one that thinks the seats are already too high? Even with the steering wheel all the way up I'm still hitting my knee when shifting gears (the transmission shifts smoother than I was expecting though, so good job there Toyota) and traffic-light visibility is lacking being so close to the roof. I feel like the truck was built for people of the same stature as the Miata is designed for.

    I'm 6'1", I put the seat up one click from the setting and have the wheel mid way up in its position, also pulled out towards me. Knees clear fine. I did put the seat jackers in the front. It doesn't raise the seat, so much as it tilts it backwards for you. makes you feel more planted in the seat, especially under hard breaking. Yes, adjustable up and down seats would have been nice. I believe the NEW pros have multi way adjustable power seats. Might look into what it take to convert mine to those.

    The tag light aren't really an issue until you step up to led bulbs in them, so like any customization, little tweaks will be needed to gain optimum performance (in this case, a brilliantly simple $7 plastic tab that a TW member @sphinxbccp came up with).

    I'm not saying the truck isn't w/o its flaws. But I'll take nuance flaws over other trucks that will be completely falling apart at 75K miles. *COUGH - ford, gm - *COUGH

    I used to fly Hawks for the army.

    Got to fly a R44 with my wife and an army buddy a few years ago! It changed my opinion on them! Nice bird!

    Same height, but I've got the seat bottomed out and the steering wheel all the way up and pulled all the way out, and my knee has to tilt to the left to get my foot on the clutch. If the seat could drop another two inches or so it would probably be just fine. I don't really have any issues with being planted fore and aft, so I don't think I'll ever have a desire for the seat jackers, but the seats definitely are not designed for lateral g's (to be expected though. It's a truck, not my Mazda3 that got destroyed 3 weeks ago). Opinions may differ, but I'd say the tag lights are an issue. I've already purchased the $7 fix that should've never been necessary.

    Also, right now I'm digging through the wiring diagrams to figure out how to fix the cruise control stupidity.

    I notice my factory lights provide a fair amount of glare on my backup camera.
    What does that light do for glare on your backup camera at night?

    Makes it all the worse. $7 fix though. You can have the best of both worlds.

    If I can trace that wire into the dash, I should be able to use an arduino to pass 12V+ on that black wire during startup and fix the cruise control. Seems like a waste of an arduino though... Maybe I can have it do other things too.

    Add a block heater while you are at it! Ohh! Warm air from the heater right from the git-go!

    For normal cruise instead of adaptive you can just hold the set button down instead of just tapping it. If that's what you're looking for.

    Thought about it, I would love to relocate my front sensor back up a little higher and then put a hinge on the garnish that would have a plug for block heater and a plug for my 12v charger.

    While I'll probably end up with that kit, $85
    Oh, I know how to switch it manually. I just don't like having to hold the damn button for 3 seconds every time I get in the truck to select the version of cruise control I prefer. It should be selectable, but it isn't. So, I may have a way to *fix* it.

    Do you have to run spacers with the stock wheels?

    What setting are you running on the front bilsteins the RXT in the back, and how much lift did you get? I ordered the same parts except SPCs instead of JBAs and will be installing soon.
