    I just picked up my 06 4x4 with a six speed trans, but I have noticed that most of the time when I shift into 2nd it grinds a bit. It won't do it if I push the clutch in and let the RPM's drop quite a bit. Could this be a bad sign?

    Yes other people have had similar problems with grinding. How many miles? The standard powertrain warranty is 5 years / 60k miles. If you're concerned, I would take it to a dealer and get the problem recorded if you're under 5/60 or if you have an extended warranty. That way if it becomes a much larger issue later on, you'll have a paper trail, and you might get some help from Toyota on the repair costs.
