    Check the build link in my signature.
    When you approach the truck with the smart key in your pocket, the interior lights will automatically light up when you’re within about 6 feet off the truck (‘20 and ‘21 only)

    That's good to know about those pens. I've tried different pens but I haven't found some that fit

    2012 Crewmax Limited - In the front middle console. On the left is the shifter. In the middle is a long plastic strip that can be removed and stored in the armrest compartment. On the right are cupholders.

    If you remove the long plastic strip, you can then grab the cupholders and also remove them by pulling upwards. Viola - large square space for stuff!

    On those models with a sunroof and Crew Max (back window rolls down), you can open the sunroof about 2 inches and open the back window about 2 inches and a fart will clear out of the cab in seconds; YMMV.

    What about things your truck does that it shouldn't do?

    My wife's 2015 Chevy Equinox has an 12V outlet in the back luggage area that is always on. I thought that was about the dumbest thing I had ever heard of...unless one uses an Equinox for tailgate parties...:monocle:

    Wow I have a 10 Chrysler, 18 Ford van, both have always on 12v outlets and I’ve checked various other vehicles just because it really bothers me that I can’t change my phone or pad without my truck being on

    My 2015 sierra didn't either. The newer vehicles seem to do away with that. My 84 c10 however :)

    In my 2020, I can pause the radio, then start it again in case someone wants to talk when there's something on the radio I don't want to miss. I just figured out the button for it.

    Sirius XM only. The feature that restarts the current song when you switch to a station is nice too but not enough for me to shell out for it.
