    My truck has a 8 1/2 inch eyebrow that was in it when I bought it, and after driving it for about a month I don't know if I really like it. I find myself sunk down in the seat to see under it. Wondering if I should remove it, trim it, or leave it. What do you guys think?

    Personally, I would remove it. That is what your visor is for.

    Dislike.
    I'd remove it if possible. Or at least make it 1/2 the size it is now.

    MY '99 F150 comes with a blue tinted portion about 5 inches big on all windshields for it. I like it, but it's only tinted, not fully coloured.

    Pretty much what they said. I am sure that your Tacoma has a modest tint at the top anyway ..... that works for me.

    It is dark enough that my EZPass doesn't show from the outside (which I like.)

    Bottom line? It is your truck and whatever makes you happy works.
