    I turned off all the PCS stuff day 1. I hate it. The warning will still come on when you are about to kill someone, but no braking. I have the Eibach springs on the Pro and have no idea if it affected it because mine is off. So basically I've given you no useful info in this post.

    I like the way you roll! Turned off the PCS immediately, removed the hideous pro roof rack and replaced the Pro exhaust! You da man!

    Yes I definitely did all those things. The best part of a 2020 is the CarPlay and JBL. I also removed the stock springs. Its barely a Pro anymore in a good way to me.

    You mean you turn it off every time you start it. Right?

    I do like the Pro! I just admire his (Dallas TRDPro) audacity to change it as he sees fit! I don't own one yet and may never own one, but from day one I have never liked the Pro roof rack and would remove it. I see no need to turn off the PCS - I hope! I will not know about the Pro exhaust drone until I am in the saddle, but don't anticipate a problem with that! I plan to keep it stock for the most part (remove the roof rack and add pizza cutters for tires).

    250 plus mile trip today in all kinds of traffic conditions. At least 2 dozen engine starts. Not one time did safety sense not work on start-up, and it functioned as designed in every respect. Lane departure, cruise, even(unintentionally) got the beeps and red brake light illumination in the dash(system was set on lowest sensitivity level). I can't imagine what went wrong a few days ago or why it decided to start working again?

    Very odd indeed, good to hear it’s working properly now though.

    It might have been easier to buy a SR5 and put Pro badges on it. ;)

    Yeah I'm not one of those people that would try to make a vehicle look like the top trim. However, I don't mind removing things that I don't like from the top trim. Hated the rack from day I saw it in pics. Traded straight up for black rails. Will add some aftermarket crossbars at some point. Hated the exhaust from the 1st week when I drove it to Moab. Found a 2021 with 8K miles less so I swapped it straight up. Didn't hate the stock Pro suspension, but wanted a small lift and level which Eibach had to run 285's which is the perfect look to me. I made the Pro exactly what it should have been from the factory. Toyota should pay me for my modification ideas. If they did that then it would really set the Pro part from the lesser trims. Very happy with the results. The 4R is by far my favorite vehicle I've ever owned. The only other thing I would do is make it a hybrid.

    I turned it off in the instrument cluster. Like I mentioned the only thing that is still activated is the collision warning, but with no braking. I don't think that can be turned off.

    Final post on the TSS incident. I hope.....

    The TSS problem came out of nowhere and for no explainable reason it continued to be inoperative for 3 days(almost to the hour). On day 3 of the TSS being inoperative - while on a short trip to town - the problem cleared itself. All warning lights went off and full function returned to the TSS. A few days after the problem cleared itself I decide to go ahead with the lift I had previously scheduled. The truck was lifted(2" front/1.25"rear)and realigned. No TSS issues have been noted as a result of it being lifted.

    Chalking this one up to gremlins. :notsure:

    Seems like the two most common Pro shortcomings is the exhaust and roof rack. Other than that it's good.
    I don't think it would fit in my garage with the rack.

    I like both. I use the exhaust note to my advantage. It keeps me in touch with the motor. The rack is only as good as how one intends to use it. I find it to be perfect for my intended use.

    As the old saying goes. Different strokes for different folks.

    I’m with ya brother. And I don’t even have it yet. I think the roof rack is badass and the exhaust note is just fine. If I wanted a quiet luxury SUV, I’d just buy one. If anybody asks about the droning noise I’ll be like this a truck...deal with it :D

    Quite the contrary. A good friend of my sisters travels and trains techs at body shops around the country on how to calibrate them. They are millimeter specific, from what I’ve been told. But yes you are correct. Minor changes shouldn’t be too bad. But a lift...‍♂️

    I asked a friend at Caliber Collision about my coming lift this week for the wifes 4Runner. Going to hook me up for an adjustment when I’m done. The use a company called Protech

    I’m hoping a few hundred will do it. But the the dealer would be $1000, if his quote is accurate.

    A grand? That's a polite way of saying we don't want to be bothered, or we do it so seldom we'll get it right, if we get lucky, but it may take ALL day. What if a truck is taken to a dealer, but is showing no signs of being inoperative. Who knows what they may....or may not do? If ya get my drift. It's working fine.....that'll be a GRAND. It's okay, call me cynical.

    Cynicism is precisely who I learned to work on things myself. Lol! It’s also why I really appreciate my 04’ Tacoma. Power windows, check. Power locks, check. Excellent!
