    2006 Tacoma PreRunner SR5 2.7L 5-speed manual
    K&N Filter, 4-leaf spring, Timbren Tortun4 polyurethane bump stops, 8-ply Hankook Hankook Dynapro AT2 RF11 LT265/70R16/86 117/114S, 7-pin trailer tow hookup with brake and power.
    I'm a long-time PreRunner owner from 2006 with lots of experience with the rock solid 2.7L engine and 5-speed transmission. I'm very pleased with its moving and towing abilities for my 2005 Casita Freedom Deluxe with weight distribution hitch, and the tire wear I got from a set of Hankook Dynapro P265/75R16 ATM 114T, and have just upgraded to a set of the Hankook 8 ply AT2 RF11 LT265/70R16/8 117/114S. A slight initial fender rub with the P26575R16 with sharp turning backing up was eliminated with the heavier LT265/70R16/8. I've been running the Valvoline synthetics, a K&N Air Filter, and have just recently upgraded to the 4-leaf spring with Timbren TORTUN4 polyurethane progressive bump stops. The rear hop in gravel, mud, and snow was virtually eliminated with these rear suspension upgrades, which helped with traction under all circumstances and should also help with towing of my Casita as well. Because of the curved sides of the Casita a slight aerodynamic trailer suck was noticed when towing, especially around highway semi tractor trailer rigs, but the increased load bearing and stability in the rear suspension afforded by the 4 leaf-spring stacks and TORTUN4 bump stops should help improve that as well.TacoCa13500LF.jpg
