I am new to this awesome website!!
So I am currently shopping around for a used Tacoma (2004 - 2008)... 4x4 with the TRD package and tow package....
here is my dilemma..... I do not know which transmission I should go with...???
I am use to off-roading and pulling with a V8 suburban... now I know better than to try to pull what my suburban can!!!
For those of you out there that have the Auto trans (V6)... how does the tacoma handle? taking off, up hills, or when off-roading and your tires are simi-covered by sand or mud.... is there enough power to spin the tires and keep on trucking through those tough off-roading conditions?????
And those of you with the manual trans...... how does the clutch hold up while taking off at a light with a trailer behind you?? or even in rough off-road conditions??
My concern is that I dont want to be under powered with an Automatic trans but I also don't want to have clutch issues??
Any help at this point would be great...
