Yea I know, I realize I put behind when I meant underneath. This is my second tacoma so I knew where they were suppose to be, just miss typed.

You could also just find an inexpensive bottle jack (harbor freight

$250 for the POS stock jack is ridiculous. You can buy sliders for that damn near, and a hi-lift is less then $100.
I've looked into it, but some pick n pulls around here are still expensive for beat up parts. Haven't had good luck in the past with them and my old 2002 Taco.
I might just bite the bullet and use it as an 'excuse' to buy sliders and a hi lift. lol Just cant decide.
With the bottle jack, do you happen to know which size is closest to the stock one? that way it will fit in the compartment? I'd hate to buy one and hear it rattling around back there. The cab is already loud enough with the drone and driveshaft vibration.

Thats funny, I had a friend do the same thing, He wasn't the brightest crayon in the box, however.
The issue I have is that the Truck was bought used private party from a guy near my home town. The truck was his daughters in High school and they had it for almost 2 years. Before then they bought it from Hayward Toyota. I emailed him about the missing tools and jack; he had replied saying neither he/nor his daughter had ever used them, that his daughter didn't even know what a jack was...
