When did Toyota remove the little wallet cubby on the left side of the steering wheel?

    Nothing major yet. Just some small details.
    My 2022 doesn’t have the little “wallet cubby” (the little hole to the left of the steering wheel) my 2019 had.

    2020 I think it was removed. You can get it though and put it in if your willing to lose 1 of your switches on that side (im looking at you auto high beams)

    You can just tuck the extra switch behind the dash and install the 2018-2019 model one. You need to make sure you get the 18-19 one as the 16-17 one has the rear window switch on it.

    It was a useless area for me personally, wouldn't even fit my wallet. I put a (3) switch panel in it for actual use.

    Cool.. I can order up a newer panel from Toyota and get rid of that picket for more switches. That seems more useful to me. I never use the pocket.

    Stock and staying that way
    I keep the key to the gate for where we go shooting at in that cubby.

    Toyota has done a lot to make me not want a new truck.

    My 2015 has it on the right side, it's perfect for a wallet on a long drive. Around town its full of change and a tape measure.

    2016 model cubby hole is a perfect holding spot for a garage door opener.

    Anyone try getting out of the truck with the little cubby door open? Had it happen to me twice. The little door didn't latch well a couple of times. Some of the worst pain I've ever felt. The corner of that little door into the side of my knee.

    Good. Was a wasted spot anyway. Now...did they ever install a driver's side grab handle?
