    I've got an 08 double cab with a bench seat up front. The cup holders on the front fold down center seat are way too big. Every time I make a turn my Redbull goes everywhere unless I'm holding it in place. Anyone know if theres some inserts or something like that I can get for it? I can't seem to find any. Thanks all.

    Might try putting a regular ole beer koozie in the cup holder to hold your red bull. Dunno if it'll work but it's a cheap try!

    Went to Menards and got some PVC fittings that fit pretty good. I wrapped some rubber seals around the outside them so the stick to cup holders w/o glue or tape. So they stay put when I fold that seat up and I can still pop them out if I need to.

    Spray those with black plasti-dip and they'll look awesome.

    I might have to find me one of those. Keep it in the console until needed for the smaller beverages.

    I thought about doing that but I like how it goes with the white paint job. I have some white plasti dip left over from my grill, so I'm going to hit up all the silver crap on the interior with it. ie the dash around the gauges and the door lock panels.

    I also got tired of the huge cup holders not holding ANYTHING! I ended up designing one that holds all my favorite drinks and 3d printing it. If anyone wants to order one, I'll print one out for you. I put it up on the website here: http://www.vaultedsnow.com/tundra/

    Great suggestions so far.

    Big picture, just get the bigger Red Bull. It will give you longer wings.

    Pretty good cup holder for a reasonable price. Is this just for the bench seat fold down cup holders or do you have other designs in the making for the SR5 and up center consoles without the bench seats?

    On a side note, your snowboard/skateboard accessories are pretty cool. I never lost my snowboard or had issues strapping in, but this would have sure been nice!!! At first I thought it was a GoPro mount (which would be bad ass).
    Are those pics in Tahoe or Heavenly?

    Thanks! Those pics are from Heavenly in Tahoe mostly. A couple from Sierra and Kirkwood as well.

    This cup holder is just for the front SR5 without the bench seat. It doesn't fit the backseat, but that's a good idea, I should make a version that fits back there too. I'll do that and throw it up on the website, thanks for asking that.

    Sweet. I always liked Heavenly. For some damn reason I would always get stuck on the opposite side of the mountain where my vehicle was parked.

    The back seat would be bad ass!!! My kids would always leave the caps off their drinks and it would dump everywhere. I only let them have water due to that.

    Same with the Tacoma rear cup holders on the 4 door models.

    Ha-ha, yeah I've been there before. Having to take the shuttle back when Sky lift is closed sucks too.

    I'll model up a back seat version this weekend and throw it on there. That's a good idea. I should be able to make it compatible with front and back, I'll just have to narrow up the "key" feature a bit.

    That's a good question. My 2008 front cab cup holders measure ~98.5mm diameter at the top inside; 80mm deep (to the inside lower lip); and ~47.25mm web width joining the two cups. Center to center of the two cups is roughly 114mm.

    I also measured out the rear seat cup holders. Unfortunately they're different enough to make it challenging to commonize. Mostly the height...since it folds in I've got to make it a lot shorter which means I have to ditch the "med redbull" feature. I'll print one out tonight and see how it fits up.

    Fits great! Holds all the other drinks the same, it just sucks at holding a med redbull. Printing a second one now to make sure they both fit nice and tight together.

    Congrats on the new truck! If you grab these dimensions I can see if it's compatible, or if not I could model one up for you. On the 2008 the front cup holder pair is a pop out module.
