    Hear you. I'm not fond of the look with mud flaps but they do offer some protection. If you do a lot of driving on gravel roads, they are a must. I've resisted but I bet the first time I see a sizable ding, I'll be putting them on.

    Black is definitely not maintenance free, been there done that. That said, when it's spiffed up it's pretty sharp looking.

    I ordered a set from EBay. I don't like the OEM(wind sails). I prefer ones that are flexible.

    My 2017 sport didn't either. Think it's a dealer add on if it does.

    Mine did. My 2017 OR didnt. But I was under the impression that these would get in the way while offroading?

    I wonder if it is a US/ Canada difference. I think all the TRD trucks I have seen in Ontario have them on.

    My dealer wanted almost $500 for the add on. Found a set on Amazon that bolts right on for $60 and are identical to factory; 20 minute install. After going to Falken Wildpeaks I took them back off; looks much better without! :thumbsup:

    I hear you. I started to keep the black 2016 SR5 and get it Line-X'd. A/C stunk so bad I decided to trade it off. Only thing I miss about the '16 is I didn't have any truck payments. This one here I have 6 years worth. LOL!

    I left it on the dealer service drive for a laundry list of work. I'm at 1119 miles.

    I think I might trade the truck in.

    Certain parts of the country the damp evap core mold/bacteria grows on it. My '19 is not even 9 months old yet and I can smell the odor of cow manure stank. I'm going to order a can of foam cleaner and shoot it up the a/c drain tube. Guess I'll have to add this to my regular maintenance every year. I found a link I can get the Subaru name brand cleaning foam cheaper than this Toyota name brand. (Wish I would of known about this stuff when I had my black '16)

    Wow! That is crazy! When the salesman gave me the quote I just laughed and said “no thanks!”

    Not sure if it’s possible but if you ran the fan to dry out the AC coil that wouldn’t happen. I’m a HVAC guy and I see it quite a bit with who,e house air conditioning. At least until all equip is switched over to variable speed blowers.

    I did that from day 1 and even started turning the heat on high then let it blow for a couple minutes before shutting the truck off. Even made sure the re-circulate air was off before I turned the truck off. Freaking weird though because I know a guy that had a 2017 TRD Sport and he never done all the things I have tried. Just shut the truck off when he got to where he was going. His A/C never had this issue. But both of my trucks have.

    Do you think short trips in town has a effect on my issue? That is all I drive mostly.
