    Can anyone recommend a jump/starter pack for the Tacoma? What would be the minimum amps needed?

    I'd prefer one that can fit in the compartments behind the double cab rear seats.

    Thanks.

    Also, couldn't find an appropriate subforum, and searches didnt really say anything about amps or rear seat storage.

    Thanks guys. I like the portability of the kwikstart, just not the price.

    I guess I need a pack with amps higher than the cold cranking amps on the battery. I think its around 500 amps.

    Same. I have a PSX Powerstation I purchased from Costco. I have one of the older models, the current one they're selling is quite a bit smaller/lighter. It comes with a air compressor as well. I use mien very, very frequently for jumping random people and airing up my tires as well as the girlfriends. Probably the best $60 toolwise I've ever spent.

    I keep my rear seats folded flat and it sits on the backseat behind the driver, with a bungie cable holding it down. Works perfectly.
