I had a "02 4WD ,3.4 V6,w/5 SPD . Loved that truck,wish I had't totaled it. Hope you never have any big disappointments from your new ride. Just keep up the maintenance
on it and it"ll last you many more miles.

There was a noise,it wasn't a clanking sound,more like a loud knock, when engaging.

Just purchased my 3rd Toyota truck - 2010 TRD Sport 4x4 Access Cab. Looks like a lot of great info on here. I have spent many hours browsing forums over the years, I'm sure I will this one too.

Welcome Darth!...I have a 13 DCSB with 4L AT very similar to yours. I am also new to this forum ...only a few months but can tell you that there is lots of infor here. Question, what differential did you get with your manual DC?

Enjoy,

Enjoy,
2-speed electronically controlled transfer case limited slip differential. Well that's what the paperwork says. But I honestly don't know the different choices.

Smile Just found out about this forum.

Why hello everyone.

I have owned a 2007 TRD 4 door for nearly two years now.

I've put it through the paces. I get up to all kinds of strange and wonderful business and my Tacoma holds up to it all. It's the kind of vehicle that you can splash through a construction site all day, clean-off, and pick up a date in the evening and fit into a car-park.

I love mine. But I am hard on it.

Apparently you can get the dealership to put in a 4-leaf axle and a better tailgate if it's got less than 36000 clicks. (I past that mile stone a long long time ago.)

I am looking at getting relentless bumpers put on mine, getting a better tailgate -- unloading the logs illustrated pretty much folded it in half-- and doing something about the rear suspension for heavy loads.

Hoping to get great ideas from everyone here on how to slowly turn my Tacoma into an abomination.

ok, rear locking diff, and the tow package. I just figured out that I got a pretty cool truck, no wonder the salesman at the dealership was looking at me l like I was an idiot

I find the my particular bed cover is great, up until the point when it isn't. That is to say the moment I have something 6' long that is taller than the box and interferes with the rolled up cover.

And it also sorts out all the finest road dust and deposits a thin layer of it on the contents of the box.

Other than that its great.

Plan on adding a few minor mods but for the most part will leave it stock besides seat covers and floor mates before hunting season far sure.

v6
long bed
4x4
tow package
four door
every thing else is extra

Did i mentions absolutely been enjoying this thing.
