My last FJ, a 2010 has a lot more pep and response in the engine department. Of course it does not have leaf springs, which, so far have posed a lot of problems setting up my Taco for both off road and towing. As of this point I got better gas mileage in the FJ, about 17-18 around town and around 20-21 on the road. Towing was anywhere from 10-14 mpg. The FJ was set up with a stage two Icon suspension and Expedition One front bumper and winch.

On the plus side for the Taco, it has a longer wheel base which should be better for towing my 17 foot travel trailer. The Taco has an anti-sway system built into the computer. I will be able to store my generator and gas in the bed of the truck. Mileage so far has been less than expected, about 15-16 in town. The ride in the Taco is much stiffer, not sure this is good. The Entune system is great compared to the FJ. I have not towed yet with the new Taco because I am recovering from having my shoulder rebuilt. It will be three or four more months before I will be able to use the new shoulder.

I am trying to decide wether to get a new leaf pack by Alcan for $640 plus shipping or put on Firestone Ride Rite Air Bags and the Daystar Air Bag Cradle Kit. I spend several months of the year traveling with the trailer for my photography so towing is important. I also do my photography far from any paved road in most cases so having good off-road capability is very important. My Taco has a stage four Icon lift with CDC in the front and 265/75/16 Duratracs. I have not had it off road due to my shoulder.
