    I am new to the forum, but not new to Toyota. I was a Toyota parts mgr. for a long time...a LONG time ago!! I am a Ford guy at heart, and have a few Mustangs. But..the need arose for another truck and it was time to buy another Toyota.
    I’ve been lurking on here for a few months, to see what’s what. Seems like a good group!

    I bought an ‘06 4x4 Manual access cab in Ohio with a scant 26K on the odo, a couple months ago. I LOVE IT!! Was a garage queen, so the paint looks new, and she still smells new inside!

    Can’t wait to get to know you all.

    Thanks fellas! MTga, ummmm....apparently he was afraid to drive a stick!!
    :rofl:

    I’ve since changed out (as I do in all my cars) the TRD short shifter. Changed the ENTIRE driving experience in this beast! It’s mandatory IMHO.

    Installed a painted later model grille, SS running boards, K&N drop in element, SS TRD exhaust tip, black Mustang style cue ball shift knob, current T A C O M A tailgate decal (placed exactly where the late model decal resides). Rearranged the chrome badges on the gate, and eliminated the small TOYOTA and the TACOMA, altogether. I ordered the 2” leveling kit and will be installing that this week I’m thinking. Also have en route the Fj TRD wheel center caps for the stock rims. I can’t decide on a set of wheels, so these will suffice. The rims look new because they were never even really washed!! :D
    Oh yeah, installed the TRD silver skid plate. And a factory Toyota rubber bed mat. Hmmm.....I think that’s it? :thumbsup:

    Oh yeah, been looking into the squeaky (wobbly) clutch pedal situation too. This thing has it already. Being an X Toy partsman, I understand how the superseded part # works. The “newest” clutch pedal part # has been superseded twice and is also the newest # for the current Tacos. Soooo, I’m wondering if this new part is truly a cure. If the arm is still plastic, it won’t be. :mad:
    I have a hard time believing that the early TSB’s never really addressed this. Hmmmmm ..... it’s the only thing that really bugs me about the truck.

    Was the single most reason I jumped on it, when I saw it for sale. ALL my cars are stick shifts. I have a YouTube channel called Gearbox Geek and the tagline is “Long Live The Third Pedal”. :p
