    Folks, i have had my 2017 Crewmax for about 3-4 months and i dont recall the console lid ever staying up on its own. Is there anything i can tighten to make it stay up or what would your suggestions be?
    Thanks

    Do you have anything attached to the underside of the console lid that would weigh it down enough to not let it stay up?

    I do not, the only thing i have done is to switch out the phone holder for a wireless charger.

    That may be it, if the wireless charger has any weight to it, and it must. My console lid stays open.

    Maybe try to add a counterbalance weight to the rear to counteract the charger. Or open it only when pointed uphill.
