    Yeah, I gots boost
    I have just been noticing lately that now that it is starting to get cold in my neck in the woods, the roads have a little bit of slick on them in the mornings. I have come to see that even with good tires, just a little bit of throttle will thro the rear end out. I realize that these are light trucks with decent power so they will tend to do that, but this new taco of mine just seems like it is worse than my '03 was... Any input?

    More weight forward than your old truck...I'm guessing more power. Higher center of gravity too....All those things will work to break your rear end loose alot easier.

    The only time I have problems is with wet tires in corners when I push the skinny pedal more than normal....There isn't much in the way of a freeze down my way tho...
