I'm really tempted to do this 2.8 pulley swap along with the fuel pump upgrade but I'm not sure I even want to keep my Tacoma or sell it and get a new Tundra or a new boosted F150.

Anyone looking for a 2013 4dr Taco w/8500miles and a TRD SC send them my way. SC was installed at 3500miles.

Correct, 30 minutes to cool and one can.

I took my breaker bar and moved the tensioner bar from the top. Took a little working it, but required no removal of the fan assembly or anything like that.

So you removed the entire assembly rather than just turning the arm clockwise to relieve tension from the belt?

No, I simply turned the arm clockwise using a breaker bar to relieve tension from the belt. This did not require removal of any truck components.

If you don't have a skid plate, the tensioner is much easier from the bottom. At least I personally think it is lol

The back of the fan clutch just barely clears the spot you would put the 1/2" drive into. I don't see how it can clear. Is there a divot or something in the fan clutch that I didn't see? Like if I turn it a few times there will be a spot that gives me better access to that? I see a lot of people talking about this in all the searches I did but nobody really mentions any details.

I don't have a skid plate. I have two. I have the stock skid and then the optional TRD fanciful skid too. I'll have to remove both to access from the bottom and it seems that working on this myself will be a lot more difficult relieving tension from the bottom and then removing the belt up top. I can use something down there to hold it but I keep reading about people doing this from above and I still don't see how they make it seem so simple.

Nothing special... the breaker bar I used doesn't have a ratchet function which may have made it easier for me to get it in there due to it being slimmer.

Alright, I was using a 1/2" ratchet so I'll check out a 1/2" breaker bar as well as a 3/8" breaker w/a 1/2" adapter on the end. Something has got to work so knowing that you got it to work is inspiring me to try this method again. Others have said that you need to pull the skid plates off of the bottom and get at it all from down there (which I'm sure you can) but I was sure there had to be an easier way than that. Thanks for the help!
