    Hey all proud new owner of a 2010 Tacoma 4x4 DC SR5. Has around 29k now and i love it. I traded in a 05 f250 6.0 4x4 Lariat. It was quiet a switch seeing how the ford was not stock( TB Exhuast chip intake injectors and lift) But i had enough from that 6.0 after returning from deployment and it broke down 4 times in 1 week. So yea hi here i am! My Taco came with a road armor bumper and MTR's and a Warn Winch. I was reading my service reports and apparently at 25k the owner reported a problem with the rear end saying it wouldn't move. So they show them replacing the carrier assembly. What do you guys think would cause that to break as such low miles? Just abuse? Only complaint from the truck i have it the random rattling of things that i cannot figure out where its coming from! but love the truck and the website as well.(pic of when i first got it since then i have debadged it and took off all the pin stripping and stickers)

    Welcome fellow Texan! I'm not sure what might cause such a failure? I would work with your local Toyota dealer. I will tell you that Toyota has been a little slow to resolve issues but the will. Good luck and welcome aboard.
