    I just picked up my taco thursday and so far I love it but because it's a new car to me, there are a few things I haven't been able to figure out yet. Oh, it's 07 v6 trd off road crew cab.

    1. When you shift into drive, do you get a lurch when it goes into gear?
    2. Do you have an annoying low ticking sound when the fan is on?
    3. How do I get the tie down points off the side runners in the bed to the front runner? I can't figure out how they will ever fit.

    Thanks a lot in advance and I'll post some pictures later on.

    The ticking is normal, there is a fix idk off the top of my head where on the forum it is but a search might find it. I heard the lurchings just the nature of the beast.

    Welcome to the forum and hope you continue to enjoy the truck!

    The tie down points don't have to be installed/removed from the rails from the ends. They can be popped on or off at almost any point on the rail (every few inches at least). All you have to do is loosen the knob all the way and turn the tie down 90 degrees. You might have to slide it to one side or the other a few inches to get to the right part of the rail, but you don't have to slide them all the way off the end of the rail.

    Tie down point? The plastic "D" shaped rings that attach to the bed rails?

    Loosen the center lock knob a LOT. You should eventually be able to pull the plastic "D" ring far enough away from the track that you can rotate it around. When you rotate it 90 degrees, the bolt that holds it in place will be able to slip out of the track. (The bolt head is flat on two sides).

    Installation is the reverse. Make sure the lock knob is loose, insert the bolt into the track, turn 90 degrees, slide it back and forth to make sure it is in a "notch" in the track, then tighten the knob down finger tight. Done.

    The lurch is normal. I think it is a bit less if the truck is warmed up first.
    Ticking is normal
    Tie downs: Cleavitt explained it very well.

    Good luck with the truck.
