Move the transmission shifter to the steering column, add a bench seat to fit three people on. Quit making it look like a Toyota. The styling of a few years ago was more unique. I'd like to have one though, but not without a full length bench seat.

Default don't change it yet

I agree that they went to great lengths to try to make it (the TR20) look like a Toyota, albeit with a big helping of Indan style. I am looking forward to giving up the bench seat in my current ride for something more comfortable, but I will miss the option of riding 3 across. I'd call the styling 95% mainstream, and people still think it looks kind of alien- I guess if you make trucks (or cars) you have to design for the masses, don't get all "creative". I'll be glad to see whatever they can get to the local dealer so I can test drive it, hopefully it's their best effort. If it only came with a bench seat, I'd probably have to tear it out and get new seats installed. If it came with tie down hooks on the outside, I might have to saw those off (or not). If they get the pricing right on these things, people would buy them anyway.

From what I have researched Diesel Exhaust Fluid should be $2 or so a gallon. It should need to be replenished at oil change intervals.
