-Much quieter than with my old Pathfinder due to a better receiver on this Tacoma maybe?
-Much easier to pull than with the crappy 3.3L Nissan.
----Drove smoooooth! Hardly knew it was there and I was pushing 80mph most of the time...(lets not talk gas mileage...wonk wonk wonk)

SO, now to a new question...I just got this truck and the leaf spring TSB has not been done(still 3 springs)...I plan on towing with it at least 3-4 times a month, generally not longer than 50 miles...and probably nothing heavier than a Passat or a Camry...

How urgent is the leaf TSB?
How does it affect towing?
I don't wanna do it cause I am cheap...and it causes harsher ride when unloaded...and so forth.
I have the TSB done and i like having the extra heft in the rear when hauling anything. It will make your Taco ride like a truck when it's unloaded and set the rear up another inch or so.
