    As I have no use for that tray, besides the above use for dog waste bags (wife agrees. Perfect place). I am not sure how I noticed this (my OCD).
    Anyway, someone mentioned that it was the ash tray. I don't believe that is correct as I have seen on the Toyota website one of those ashtrays that looks like a Coffee mug with a hole in the middle.
    I snapped this picture on YouTube & shows one factory use for it.
    The cigarette lighter! Because the truck only has 250 already! I know they likely won't heat a lighter (different plug).
    Anyway... my findings! LolScreenshot_20190409-233953_YouTube.jpg

    Good eye!
    I didn't zoom in. It was in a YouTube review video & I thought it was factory. The guy probably took it off as to not scratch the car.

    This brings up a good question.
    In other markets, where is the cigarette lighter in this vehicle?

    What is this tray... lol

    Mine is way too big for quarters. They would just rattle & drive me nuts.
    We bought a center counsel divider for change, loose items etc. $10 on Amazon.

    I’ve thought about notching it out and trimming it to see if I can fit some rocker switches or even a switchpro

    That would be very interesting to see, remember back in the day's when they use to drop the Tacoma's to make them look like lowriders with Airbags

    Yeah good idea, just trim off the parts that stick up and put the switch pro controller over top it all. Probably would work well.

    That slot seems like a good opportunity for someone with a 3d printer to come up with something that adheres in the opening with 3m tape that holds a phone or something useful.

    You high-fallutten TRD folks have your pen trays stunted by your fancy schmancy joy sticks. If you could only humble yourselves like us SR5ers you'd have a full length tray and no worries at all.;)

    Actually, to an extent he is right.
    After some Google images I found a picture of a long one.
    It is the ones with the 4wd knob as opposed to the shifter. The shifter makes it useful (in terms of writing items) for golf pencils only!
    Now I think we have all the ways to use "this tiny tray" lol
    But wait, there is a pen holder in the arm rest... Maybe you do "put your weed in it" LMAO

    That tiny tray is much to small to hold weed.

    I need the center console to store my brick. :rasta:

    I have Homelink and I STILL use my garage door opener. I tried to program the Homelink to my garage once and it wouldn't work. I am capable of programming a DVR, writing PLC code in Codesys, and I understand basic English so I think I was properly following the instructions..

    How old is your garage door opener?

    Some of the older ones require you to press some button on the garage door opener itself in order to talk to the Homelink button. Mine needed to be done this way.

    We just built the house a couple of years ago so I think it's fairly new..

    That all said, the garage door opener programmed easily and works fine.. I win by refusing to play the game!

    Well, there’s your problem. You’re over qualified. My old house had a newer garage door opener with home link and it took me about a minute to have mine up and running.

    Well now I feel inadequate - looked into it a bit.. I have a Chamberlain garage door motor, there are special instructions to sync with Homelink that I didn't try before.. I guess I have a big project for today now!
