1st Taco & 1st Truck

Hey fellow Taco owners. Just became a proud owner of an '09 Silver PreRunner DCB TRD Sport. I have always been a sport car enthusiast, but unfortunately the Audi S4 wasn't a good toy hauler ('07 Yamaha R1). I chose the Tacoma for it's looks and reputation.

I look forward to learning a lot from you guys. I was just wondering if you could set me in the right direction...

1. What are the "must do" mods?
2. Do the '09s come with 3 or 4 leaf springs?
3. If they do come with only 3, should I get the TSB done? (I occasionally be towing around 3,000 lbs of motorcycle & trailer to the track)
4. Has anyone rewired the rear camera to a different location so you can use it when the gate is down?
4. Recommended bed covers.


Thanks to all in advance.

Welcome being an x-audi mechanic. yea if that s4 hadnt cost you some money it was going to. timing belts on those things are pricey.

But i did see a guy get 750hp to the wheels out of one.
