    Newbee alert:) Hello everyone. I have a little exposure to Taco, Jeep, Chevy, Ford and GMC 4x4's. I picked my favorite 2012 Taco. I'd like to buy but I have a few questions.

    What 2nd Gen frame mods have been made to reduce the frame rust problem found on earlier model Taco?

    Is 2012 tail gate load limit 200 pounds? Anyone tried hauling heavy items like a street bike?

    Where is metal bracing located under composite bed for mounting Roll Bar and cargo cleats?

    Is the 4 cylinder engine still made in Japan?

    Thanks.

    i know a few day old thread.

    1, they pretty much fixed the rust issue on 2nd gen. i have ’07 and have had over 300 pounds on my tail gate a few times. no binding at all.

    2. the frame. but with the rail i have not found a need to add more. some do thats call the “D-RING MOD” they take out the front bolts that bolt bed to frame and add D-rings like their is in the back of the bed.
