06 Access Cab V6 4wd. It continues to be very reliable but has some annoyances.

- Cold start engine rattle. This is not the "normal" ticking sound, it's much louder and goes away within a few minutes of driving. Can't pin point it with my stethescope, it's been an on going problem for over 40,000km, has not gotten any worse. Piston slap is my best guess.

- Exhaust manifold "flutter" noise at certain RPM's since I have owned the truck, I was well past the warranty before I realized there was a TSB to upgrade to the 07+ tubular style manifolds.

- No grease zerk on the drive shaft slip yoke, next time I have to pull the drive shaft to grease the splines im just going to add my own zerk.

I love the truck but I've got one major problem. About 6 months ago I noticed a rough texture to the paint on the roof. Within a month the paint deteriorated to the point where rust began to show through. The roof has been waxed in the past but I will admit that it didn't always get waxed as often as the rest of the truck because it is more difficult to reach. I've seen a few other posts about this problem.

1) 2009 TRD O/R 4x4 with 55k
2) 4.0 A/T
3) 4WD with traction control and rear locker
4) DoubleCab/Shortbed)
5) Stock TRD
6) 1 - Major ticking in the engine (gets louder, not softer as the engine warms up) that the dealer says is normal. (I've run it next to three other 2nd gen 4.0s and my ticking is significantly louder and more erratic than the normal injector tick) 2 - Burning smell coming from the engine that I notice whenever I park, for which the dealer has also found nothing. 3 - Thump coming from the rear when I release the brake after stopping. (I read that greasing the slip joint and propeller shaft fixes this, but I haven't tried it yet.)
