    Hello,
    Great site!!!
    Excellent towing info!
    I bought an '09 Tacoma in August love it, but found that
    the weight carrying capacity was a little on the
    lame side. Info from this site led me to get my dealer to
    install the spring & Shock TSB - much better loaded or unloaded.
    Ride is much improved overall.
    I also noted that the frame exhibited some rusting areas - much like
    the pics I see on the site, but of course less advanced.
    Went ahead and touched up everything with RustOleum, and then
    shot the underside with Rusfre (wax type anti corrosion)
    We'll see if that helps.

    Another tip - if you are installing the Toyota (non tow package truck) trailer harness, take the spare out - makes routing a snap.
    I took the time & aggrivation to first un tape the harness and add a #10
    wire for the trailer brake power.
    Jim
