The center cap of one of the wheels inadvertently came off. This was not related to an accident or off-roading. It may have even not been replaced during a recent oil maintenance. The dealership replaced for free.

One of the center caps on the wheel broke and needs replacement. I've found that these aren't easy, or consistently, re-installed by the non-dealer shops I take the truck to for tire service, alignments, etc. Sometimes they look like they're mostly in place, but not quite 100 percent seated. Other times, trying to seat the cap will break one/some of the attachment tabs...2nd occurrence over the almost 8 yrs of ownership isn't horrible, but annoying. Tail-gate lever and key is problematic. It is difficult to pull the lever to open the tailgate and the lock has been difficult to get the key into. I took the inside panel off the tailgate and lubricated everything with a silicone lubricant which helped in the short term, but it's been getting more difficult again after a couple months of regular use. One of the TRD off-road stickers has been showing signs of aging over the past year. Showing to the point of the sticker is showing visible partitions within the border of the sticker like it's starting to come apart.

RPM's at start were 2,000 and held for several seconds. Then dropped (slowly) to 1,600 and held for a couple minutes. If left sitting, would drop to 1,100 and stay. Transmission slippage. Transmission fluid level checked out OK and was told the slippage is to protect the system when cold. Interesting thing to build into a four wheeler...
