    So i finally got my 09 last week and im lovin it so far i just have a few questions.

    Ok so first a sort of rattle has developed under the dash, it started when i would go over a speed bump but has started doing it whenever i hit a bump. Does anyone else have this problem? is there an easy solution, i already plan on taking it back to the dealer.

    and secondly my truck has started everyday no problems without plugging it in in -25 when i first got it. But for the last two days it has started fine in the morning and when i get in it after work it has almost seemed like it was labouring to start. it was turning over but it seemed like it wasnt getting fuel or something. Any advice?

    And lastly i was looking at the Toyota front skid at the dealership, does anyone have any opinions on it? or would you reccomend soemthing else?

    There is a thread on the rattle. i will find the thread and give the link to you.

    make sure your battery connections are good and tight. i havent had that problem.


    the OEM skid is really nice, it works good for trailing and looking. but if you are doing some heavy stuff plan on getting an All-Pro, Shrockworks, or Road Armor bumpers/skids

    invest your self into one of those OEM engine warmers... that will probably help with that problem

    Believe it or not it's a common problem...someone on here (chris4x4) came up with a theory about it being the factory gap of the spark plugs... let the engine break in and it will get better
