    I have read over 4 threads that all same the same thing. The Recalls.

    Everyone clam down. Its nothing to get your underwear in a bunch. Yes It CAN happen but maybe not to every single person at one time.

    Every small thing that our trucks do now automatically make everyone go into panic mode and complain to the dealership about the "sticky gas pedal". The lurch can be caused by the axle wrap OR the transmission dropping into 1st gear. It happens to me all the time. I'm not worried. I will be worried when I KNOW my truck is careening out of control, wide-open throttle. I know what that feels like.

    Again please calm down about all this please. Just drive your truck and enjoy it and stop worrying about every single thing it does. Its a truck, GET over it. Fords, Chevys, and even Nissan have their problems.

    I have a 2006 PreRunner. There is ZERO sign of anything that comes upon this board. Most likely never will, because I don't notice the little "tweaks" my truck does.



    And another thing the world is NOT going to end during the year 2012. Why would it? How would it? What makes you think it would or could?





    Had to vent. Somethings just need to come out and be said

    the a/c also causes a little lunge but more brake pedal pressure never fails

    Why lock the thread? Its something that should be said. I've been wanting to say it for a while.

    Stephen, I'm not entirely sure. I may be getting a 2nd "worker" truck and installing the Long Travel on it. I will probably change out all 4 corners soon. Once I have the funds for all this.

    Agreed.

    One time I was driving in the desert and I was trying to stop, but it lunged forward and then an asteroid hit me. They got it on tape
