    Is it me or do the 4Runner cup holders kinda suck. Every time I put anything in there the darn insert sticks to the bottle. I go to take the insert out & then the bottle is banging around in the cup holder. :annoyed:
    Yea yea...I know it’s kinda petty but it has been driving me crazy. Are there better inserts out there or any tricks that others are using? I can’t be the only one with this annoyance..or am I??

    Thanks!!

    I have the same problem, my wife even asked me eventually what that is when I keep bring it in the house, because it comes in attached to my coffee mug when I bring it in the house.

    Tape it in place. I'd say dab of glue but maybe to permanent.

    I had the same problem. Used a small piece of 3M tape to hold it in place. The tape will hold and not make it permanent like glue would.

    Lol, i think the problem is not the coffee, but the container pulling the liner out.

    Hey guys, I found what looks like a pretty good solution on Etsy of all places. There’s a store selling 3D printed inserts made of hard plastic that are sized to fit a Yeti mug. I ordered a pair and will post again when I get them to let you know how they work.

    The Etsy store is called MawnDesign. $33 for the set. I ordered black with no bottom design.

    not a big fan of the cup holders on the 4 runner...my '97, is missing part of the passenger side holder...probably due to brittle plastic...and the other drivers side, is barely holding it together...
