    I see you have them hanging on the passenger side. My money is on pull ring. I would think sunglasses hanging on the driver's side would obstruct the view.:thumbsup:

    If I insert key to the door lock and hold it to the right it will roll all my windows down and roll them back up by holding it to the left.

    I had no idea my windshield was heated until I was watching it be replaced and it had a wire hanging down. When I asked I was told it is the heater

    That must be a First or Third Gen item, or one of the option packages. It doesn't work on my 2nd Gen.

    After removing the sun visor from the clip, grab said sun visor and gently pull toward the center of the truck...

    I discovered that I can start my tundra using an App with the remote connect feature.

    Yep, did you see the Valet, Guest modes? It will limit the driving distance, speed, times it can be driven. All sorts of stuff.

    When shifted into reverse the side mirrors tilt down and in onto the rear tires on my ‘19 Platinum (works only if the side mirror toggle is on left or right, not center).

    My wife's Acura MDX has this too. I wish I had it on my '15 SR5. It helps when parking along a curb.

    Wife's '14 Venza does this but I haven't noticed my Limited doing it yet. Will try it with the toggle.

    Doesn't work on a Limited. Must be only with power mirror option.

    It doesn't work on my 2017 Platinum either. I wonder if it's because I used TechStream to disable the auto seat and steering wheel movement upon entry and exit...

    Alright, this is rather embarrassing, but I just found out that I can adjust my headlight level (insert facepalm emoji here). I was just telling my wife the other day that my headlights sucked and I felt like they were pointed super low (turns out the dial was on the highest setting). I swear, I was about to drop 6 hundo on new headlights when I started messing with the dial the other night and was like, “NO F’ING WAY! I CAN SEE!!”

    Air lift, black out emblems, wheels, tonneau cover, tires, led lighting, hidden step rail, remote start.
    Yes, I use them all the time when someone won't move over in left lane, it works.

    Mine tilt up - which is the exact opposite of what I'd like and make side mirror useless. Anyone know how to make them either point down or stop moving when I put it in reverse?

    I had to clean the inside of my rear windows tonight. I went to remove the outer seat headrest and noticed it tilted forward. I did not have to pull it out of the seat back. One of these days I will read the owners manual from cover to cover.

    I'm reading this thread so I don't miss stuff in the manual... now I need to go try my key in the door and see if I can flip down the headrests too!

    Look like that is not supported in the 2018 Tundra Platinum
