    I'm new here and thought I'd add to the general knowledge a bit. I love this truck in nearly every way, but I was disappointed with how the headliner ends with a ragged edge at the back window. It looks like it was cut short, but a quick check at the dealer confirmed that this is the way they all are. It's kind of surprising given how well the rest of it is made. I looked all throughout the forum and couldn't find any solutions posted so I just figured I'd accept it.

    Not being able to let it go, however, I found this at Amazon which seemed promising to go on the 1/4" trim around the window and provide a clean edge at the headliner. Seems to work well and look good.....

    Welcome! Glad to see your first post is contributing to the Tundra community!

    I'll definitely be looking into this as well since adding my dashcam has made me notice this as well.

    Actually, the rubber bulb acts as a support for the headliner as well and keeps it up. You have to work a little to get it in but it seems to keep everything up where it's supposed to be....

    How does it attach to the windown trim ? Does the headliner just tuck under the round rubber? How did you finish the ends?
    Thanks for your research!

    It actually is just a friction fit over the window frame and the headliner tucks underneath. The trim has a piece of rubber inside the groove to grip once it's press-fitted to the frame and it seems to be on there pretty well. For the ends, I just cut it at the bottom of the left and right vertical runs on each side. The ends are behind the seat and I couldn't see them, so that was ok. I think that if you wanted to, you could continue it all around the window frame at the bottom as well and cut it where they meet in the middle. Probably not a bad idea now that I'm thinking about it :monocle:
