Some observations about my new Tacoma

Only have 160+ miles on the truck, 2 wks. old -

Received the AFE Pro Dry S air filter from Auto Anything yesterday, when I took out the stock filter and saw the secondary filter there I wasn't sure what to think, I called AFE and was told that the secondary filter is a "hydro carbon trap filter" and should be left in place - so I just dropped in the new filter and buttoned the air box back up, bottom back latch was a bit tricky to get connected -

I never had a truck with a 5 spd. transmission before, sure does a lot of shifting especially when slowing down to make a cornor, I thought there was something wrong but realized it was just downshifting - just have to get used to it -

And by the way, where in the heck is the tranny dip stick ? I must be going blind, I didn't see it anywhere under the hood -

Why do you think Toyota did not put an illumination ring around the 4 wheel drive dial ?

I am having my Leer 100XL cap put on Thurs. this week -

I really like the truck - nice firm ride - plenty of room inside - gotta get some pics posted soon -

Joe

No such thing as a tranny dip stick on your truck...

in 5k miles, make sure you loosen the right plug when changing oil, lots of people drain their tranny fluid....... Congrats on the new truck!!!! you'll love it
