I know its a pretty meaningless question, but it's driving me crazy. I can't find the answer anywhere online or in the manual. so here it goes...
What are those two small square trays in the jump seats (back seats)of an ACCESS cab used for?

Ok...well its late night and that's why i'm here in the forum...no one to call. I'll try to call toyota dealer or toyota themselves...dealer may not know, seamed like i knew more about my TACO then the sales person anyway...but if i find the answer i'll post it.

Thanks!

:lol: You say that, but they had this guy on CustomTacos that had his X-Runner seized by the government because he had marijuana in his access cab. I don't think he ever got it back either. It was a part of a big drug investigation. Sucks to be him.

WoW! How much weed did he have in there??? He must have been deal'n? I think we have a seizure law but it is only if you are caught selling the stuff.

Meaningless question... meaningless answer.

You want the truth? They aren't there for any particular reason at all.

It's like asking why do they put a key entry on the passenger side door. Should the passenger have his/her own key? They do it because they can. The designers felt it was necessary to have an indented, hard surface on seats. Use your imagination. You aren't missing out on anything. I assure you.

Maybe so those of us with cars not blessed with keyless entry can open the doors faster in bad weather? :D I have keys to my mom's car, and an ex-gf that I never gave back. 'Course she still has one of mine too so cuz we worked different schedules and only had 1 car tagged and insured.

Our family does that so other members can drive the car when needed, unlock the doors, or even just shuffle them around the driveway when moving snow, or one of them needs access to the garage. Also means if two us have keys, one set gets locked in, we're not fucked. Seems like a good idea to me... :rolleyes:


Edit: I also HATE having to dig out my keys so my wife can take the truck. The "valet" key is kept in the house as a backup incase of a lockout so we never use that. But at $45 each, I'm not about to make 3 copies of my key so a family member can bail me out if I loose one or lock it in the truck.

That should explain it enough, but how would a passenger open a passenger side door without a keyhole?


Also, for those times when you need to reach the glove box easier. As in, you're outside and here the old "license and registration please" line..... :lol:

:wtf:

I was asking a rhetorical question. Are trying to convince me that ALL of your passengers should have a key to your truck or do you just not like unlocking the door for them?

truck doesn't matter so much now with keyless entry. My car on the other hand is a bitch when the rain is pouring down... Gotta run to the car, get my door open then reach over to unlock my wife's door while she stands in the rain. Or with my mom's car I'd be standing in the rain while she unlocked hers, got in, and grabbed my door. Two keys make it easier. I would not give keys to my kids until they can drive, but adult passengers have keys.

I see what you mean. I lived in Endicott for the first 16 years of my life. I guess we both know a lot about crappy weather. :lol:

Why doesn't your wife or any other passenger wait under cover until you run out, unlock the driver's side with your key and then unlock the passenger side door from the inside? Then both you and her don't have to get any more wet than necessary. :thumbup:

I always thought the trays would be a great place for back passengers to store a wallet or keys. We play ball a lot, and many shorts don't have pockets.

I also thought toyota did it just to make sure that only two people would sit in the back. Of course you could throw a towel over them, but has anyone tried sitting in the middle? I wouldn't recommend it.

I use mine for a screw/bolt/small part holder while I'm working on something inside the cab. Especially when the something I'm working on requires the removal of the center console.

heh... just noticed this one...

With the truck I click the remote and we can all get it. Usually I have to pull out of the garage or turn around to drive out the driveway so I pull up next to the door.

Still, there are times like if you're at Walmart or Sam's Club in Vestal were you just want to get the fuck out and away from the people! :lol: So she doesn't want to wait under the tiny roof outside the door while I bring the car around. I have an umbrella that helps too, but if she can unlock a door to get the kids in while I unlock the trunk to load groceries it works better.

Honestly, I've thought about paying to have power locks and keyless entry added to the car just to make it easier. Quotes I got to do it have made me hold off so far. Next best thing is someone else with a key.


And something a little unrelated. I locked my keys in my car once. When the AAA guy finally got there he managed to fuck something up when poping the lock. His hook yanked out one of the rods the key mechanism uses to unlock the door. I didn't realize this until I tried using my key after work that night. Had I not had a second key hole I'd be stuck waiting for AAA again. Next day I took the door panel off and popped the lock back together.

Any way, for your rhetorical question I'd said "just in case....." lol we all knows shit happens! :lol:
