Hey guys, just brought home my new toy, 2020 Platinum, to say I’m in love with this truck is an understatement...haha...quick question, I’m looking at bed liners and bull bars, would products made for 2019 crew cabs fit my 2020?...as you can imagine there’s some things out for it but since it’s only October of 2019 the selection is limited...thanks in advance!! 6EB09271-D37C-48B4-8291-F211327920F1_1571047060900.jpg

did they put the push button start system in the same spot as the key spot on the previous models?

how does that Toyota remote app work on the phone to start the truck? does it shut off when you open the door?

Just curious as to some of the new changes

nice rig

Thanks guys!...they put the push button start on the right of the steering wheel on the dash, and I haven’t used the app yet, I’m coming from an SR5 to the platinum so I’m still getting used to all the extras...haha...I literally just bought it 2 days ago, but the 8” screen is nice, along with Apple CarPlay...loving it!

Pretty sure most things fit. A bull bar might affect the adaptive cruise if it has it, or emergency braking if it has it.

For bedliner, I went with Line-X. It's been great.

Congrats!

Off-topic but since you have a 2020...there has been some suggestion that the JBL stereo system has been improved (can turn it up louder than in previous years) since the head-unit was updated. I'm not expecting high-end audio but are you able to comment at all about the JBL audio system? Thx!

No prob!...the audio system is awesome, my last 2 Tundras never had a JBL system, so I honestly can’t compare, but I can say for a stock radio, best I’ve heard...I’ve had it up about as loud as I can tolerate and sounds phenomenal, no kind of distortion at all...my kids love it...lol

Adaptive cruise control should function off of the module on the windshield, behind your mirror. Need to confirm that with the dealer or a more knowledgeable member, though. Should not have a module where a bumper, grill, or bull bar goes that would impact its performance.

Ok awesome, this is all new to me since I’m coming from an SR5, I’ll double check with the dealer, thanks for the feedback!!

I suggest Linux or other spray on liner. Liners that slip into the bed sometimes collect debris under them and cause rust. I own a 2003 Tundra with Linux and it’s terrific 16 years later.

I prefer the drop in liners.

The spray on liners look great but they don't protect the bed from getting dented if you haul anything heavy and they will get gouged if you run something like a snowmobile in the back of the truck (which I do) or haul pallets or other heavy items. Also, after a couple years, the surface gets dull and does not look as good.

On the positive side, the spray on liners tend to keep things from sliding around better than the drop in liners.

I like to say it this way. The good news is that nothing slides around. The bad news is that nothing slides around.

The drop in liners look good and stay looking good. They protect the bed from getting dented, and if the bed does get dented, you can't tell because the drop in liner holds it shape. The drop in liner is also a lot stronger than the spray in liner so it helps keep the bed from getting dented as well.

You can get the drop in liners so things slide easily around and you can get them that don't.

All things considered, from my experience, I like the cheapest drop in liner made from Toy for Trucks. I think it is called the Rugged Liner. It is the kind that things can slide around. If I remember right, it was about $150 or less installed. It worked great, held up great, and looked great several years later.

I have a spray in liner now (it came that way used), and it is dull and dirty looking, the bed is dented, and i have several gouge marks from stuff I hauled back there. I am seriously thinking about dropping one of the Rugged liners in there on top of the spray on liner if for no other reason than it will look better.

Go with Line-X. Have had it on my 2012 work truck since new. Highest tensile strength and warranty is nationwide(that's very important).

Cruise and collision are through the radar in the grill emblem. Lane detection and (I think) auto high beams are through the windshield. Parking sensors are in the bumper corners.

Blocking the radar unit with a bull bar would be hard, since that would be a very tall bull bar. But a large grill guard has to be designed to accomodate that radar. I think everything that is built for 2018 will need to accomodate it, since that was the first year for adaptive cruise on the Tundra.

Also, I'd bet the remote start stops the engine when you open the door. That's a constant complaint among both Toyota and Lexus owners and it appears that they're never going to change that, so it has to be a liability thing...

And welcome to the Platinum club. Remember to set your side mirrors to view the curb-side rear tire so when you go into reverse you can parallel park like a boss. I use my second seating position for a full recline and retract, pushing the steering wheel up - Position 2 is "sleep mode" for me.

Thanks for the feedback, definitely things to consider, much appreciated!

Awesome, great to know!...I was having a hard time finding out where exactly the sensors were, so I appreciate the help!!...and that’s a great idea for the second seat setting, just did it as soon as I read your post...haha...thanks again!
