    First post......

    Hello, just bought a Tacoma 4x4 a couple nights ago. This is my first Toyota truck. I've had all the rest (F250, F150, Silverado) so I thought I'd try a Toyota. I'm sure I'll have many questions in the future, but I thought I start with this one to ease my worries a little:

    I bought a Tacoma and on the way home (about 70 miles) I ran the truck in "4" instead of "D." I noticed the RPMs around 2500 and thought it was little high, but I did not notice the mistake until the next morning. The next day, I noticed the "D." My bad....just didn't notice since the "4" and the "D" are on the same level on the display. So, I basically ran the truck for 70 miles without overdrive and at a higher RPM.

    Any harm done?

    Thanks, jed

    U will be fine. Just don't do it all the time. I have lower gears (4.88s) in mine and I run at 3k all the time so I wouldn't be worried.

    No... the worst you possibly done was wasted a little bit of gas
