    My rig is a 2019 Off road premium. Under the radio and temp controls there are two useless compartments, and two power plugs. Has anyone seen a way to modify this space to make better storage?

    The tufskins showed up super fast and I installed them today. Not exactly what I expected, I have no doubt they help with their purpose for me, hold things in the small cubbies but they are a 1/4” thick making those small compartments smaller. They fit snug except for that small “I don’t know what” space that’s about 1x1.5. They do have peal and stick bottoms so that is nice. Oh yeh, the cup holder inserts only fit in the toyota inserts, not the size if you take those out. FFE4DC5A-B96B-41AA-B6BA-31E2A638CE6C.jpg34109553-B704-45DB-8378-A56E8C25AB27.jpg

    I was thinking they were thinner than that, not liking those.

    Why not just get that drawer matting they sell at Lowe’s? Cut it to size it’s like 1/8” thick

    I had the same expectations, I’m not sure I’ll keep them and just write it off as a loss.

    When my wife was driving it daily she wanted a splash of red, so she bought a red paint pen and painted it herself. Worked pretty well i think.

    Those inserts are bad. I’m going to replace the radio in the next week or so. At that time I’m going to come up with a plan. I have a couple of ideas already. Just can’t form plastic.

    . No. I was going to try working on a design if something is possible. I just can’t believe this is the best they can do. If it would only slope backwards it would be better.

    I'd have to look it up, but there is some guy on eBay from Canada selling vinyl overlays for these but they are kind of pricey.

    https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_od...d=m570.l1313&_nkw=TOYOTA+HITCH+VINYL&_sacat=0

    I would suggest this company though.

    https://tvdvinyldecals.com/

    They have awesome customer service, reasonable prices, and I exchanged a great back and forth with Rich. 100 thumbs up.
