    1. Limited here, No pocket behind drivers seat... like the passenger even has one.
    2. Audio changes to phone music when it's already listed on radio. Sometimes super buggy. It won't turn on the radio so I have to plug/unplug my iPhone to get the sound back on after I start the truck.
    3. Big ol' space under center armrest.... and you get tiny glove box!
    4. No driver side "Oh crap" handle, I got one off sparkparts... but wtf, I get in an out with that all the time now that I have it installed.
    5. I drive a '21... no wireless area where the big hole under the armrest is? Yes there is a mod for that.. but I don't need it... yet I'm old school with an old phone.
    6. Backseat has a cigarette lighter... all these cig lighters should be gone by now, just make them into home chargers (Yea I'll get an adapted for it to connect to usb-c or USB eventually for backseat passengers.
    7. Definitely the free auto-start that turns off even if we're the ones that open it.... like there has to be a software flash update that can fix this too. They already use an auto unlock doors if the key is in my pocket and I tug on the doors that are locked, they'll unlock.
    8. Really soft suspension up front, so I'm in the process of leveling with non-adjustable coilovers. Nose dive during braking no more!
    9. Trunk bed lights would be cool.

    I hope they keep the rear seat 12V plug in the next gen so I don't have to buy an air compressor with a longer cord.

    Likely, they should add plugs on the doors or in the middle. I see that happening to help out the backseat folks.... oh and don't get me started on cup holders... i mean so many cup holders, but only fit a standard cup, they gotta make the ones that fit the 40oz's or have them adjustable or clamp down.

    In the end I chose reliability over the fancier other branded trucks that have more up to date items inside. So I'm still happy with the purchase.

    The shark fin attena, terrrible reception, by 2002 Excursion has better radio. And to boot Toyota didn't adjust their height specs to account for the damn thing so I had to lower the lift from 3" to 2".
