    Yes, they will fit. Suspension components do not differ from 2nd gen to 3rd gen. I have icons from a 2nd gen on my 3rd gen.

    Anyone having steering problems with Tacoma 2017 after installed a lift kit? I just install a lift kit 2" and a 1.25" spacers on my Taco with Falken 265/70R17 and I'm feeling the steering a little shaking.

    Did you get an alignment after the lift install?

    Did you replace the needle bearing? Highly recommended to swap with the ECGS bushing

    Yes, I'll have to take the spacers out or try a second alignment. Thanks.

    Its the wheel spacers had the same issue when i put 285 on the factory wheels. I used 1.5 wheel spacer in the front and it gave me a wobble at highway speeds. I upgraded to rims with the proper offset and it stopped.

    I just now realized on my 2018 that if you hold the cruise control “on” button it will switch it to run cruise control the old fashioned way with out radar which is great because I’m not a big fan of he radar

    Haven't driven a Tacoma with the radar, does it behave differently that other cars? I generally like the radar based cruise.

    I have never driven a car with it before so I cannot day for certain. It’s probably the same or damn close.

    I never really use cruise control while commuting but I did mess around with the radar stuff for a while. While I can understand the convenience of it; for me, while driving in traffic where the speeds vary it drove me crazy constantly slowing down and speeding up to pace the car in front of me it just seems inefficient. I would utilize it on long highways with less traffic for sure.

    It may come down to control issues, same reason I don’t let my wife drive.. I can’t let my truck drive for me either. Ha

    Nope, it doesn't drive any differently. I love the adaptive radar cruise control on road trips especially. I've always found it a pain in the ass to always be fucking with the CC when I come up on another car. Now I don't have to do that anymore, it's great!

    I agree that the adaptive cruise control is a great feature to have on the highway. Mine works very well indeed.

    Law Enforcement around my area use "trunked" radios, I believe a scanner for that is $$$$. I listen to local fire and rescue on a free phone app, works great!
