    Hi folks,
    I just bought a 2008 Tacoma TRD 2 wheel drive, double cab with 28000 miles. Can someone tell me where I can find all the TSBs that apply to this truck?
    Kind regards, Capt. Mike

    Thank you Jason. I sure am happy to come across this forum. :D

    I looked at the rear leaf springs of my 2008 Tacoma 2WD double cab TRD and it looks like it has 3 leaf springs. I dont know if it bottoms out. I have never had that much load in the bed. I am going to haul a boat with it. Do you think I Should go ahead and get the T-SB-0305-08 SEP 08 Suspension - Rear Spring Harsh Ride done anyways?

    Also, where do I look to see if this has a transmission cooler for the automatic transmission? I have a tow package but I cant say I have a transmission cooler.

    Kind regards, Capt. Mike

    How big of a boat are you towing? I've got a buddy that tows around a 21 ft Open bow and his truck sagged when he towed it. I suggested the leaf spring tsb and that solved his problem.

    I'm pretty sure the tranny cooler is in front of the radiator it's kind of small and rectangular. If you have the tow package from the factory you should have one. Do you have the seven pin connector to the left of the hitch?
