I didn't do any work on the Taco.....but did a lot with it. Moved my office, hauled multiple loads of files and furniture using the bed and also a flat-bed trailer, some of them undoubtedly exceeding the recommended weight limits.....no TSB on mine, old style springs, and yet never bottomed out. Maybe that is less of a problem with the regular-cabs? I'm not sure why that would be, but perhaps the shorter wheel-base. Anyway, the truck did an outstanding job.

Didnt change the wire set, and didnt have to grease it. the sensor snaps in to the coil, there is one bolt that hols it to the valve cover. they come off easy. truck had 38000 on it and was def over due, it runs noticibly better now.

If you get the truck and want to do your own maintenance, picking up a Haynes manual for it is a good idea. I have a 1st Gen and the Haynes for it isn't bad, lots of pics and specs and pretty good DIY instructions.

Tiger's right, I went to the Haynes website, nothing listed for 05 and up.

Whatever happened to Chiltons manuals?

Same thing. I contacted Haynes, Chiltons, and a couple other manual companies. Same story each time: Toyota isn't letting them reproduce manuals. Which confused me because since when is taking a truck, tearing it down piece by piece, and putting it back together "reproducing" a manual?
