    I have a 2007 Taco no hood scoop. I bought the truck used so dont know what the original equipment was. What model year did Toyota start the hood scoop thing ? Thanks.

    WRONG!
    I bought one of the first shipped 2nd gen quad-cab TRD Sport's shipped (2005 model), i was IT guy at dealership and reserved it for myself :)

    Has full TRD Sport package and offroad package, hood scoop included. and it has real locker instead of the just break lock system :)

    on that note has anyone made the hood scoop active?

    cheers,
    disco

    LOL

    I don't understand, who are you saying is wrong? Both of us said 2005 and you are saying you got a 2005.

    You did not get a TRD Sport AND Offroad.

    The "brake lock", or non-mechanical LSD, you speak of was not introduced until 2009 I believe. '05-'08 TRD Sports had mechanical LSD's with clutch packs.

    guess i got an odd-ball then, its mainly sport package, painted bumpers, hood scoop, etc, but with hooks and 17" trd sport rims and had all-terrains, both have the extra coolers etc


    "The "brake lock", or non-mechanical LSD, you speak of was not introduced until 2009 I believe. '05-'08 TRD Sports had mechanical LSD's with clutch packs. "

    i thought it was only 2005/2006, thanks for the info. so its 2005-2008?

    i donno

    ok, thanks. i did try to have it delivered with the electronic lock (like the 4x4's) but they said no way. i guess the tires were just an add-on somewhere along the line. Like i knda mentioned before I ordered it myself when i was in the dealers computer, got it for $24,100 off the truck :) that was dealer cost! they had one like it delivered at same time put on the lot for $32,000 (this was in 2005) hehehehehehe

    (dealers never show you the actual ship cost, even if they show you a "manifest") :)

    cheers,

    Opening the scoop is a waste of time, it won't do anything but let more water in the engine bay.
