    2008 double cab, 4X4, V-6, TRD. Super White.
    OME 885 coils & front shocks, with TT top plate, Total Chaos UCA, Rear OME extended shocks, Rear TSB, Rear Toytec AAL, trimmed the saber-tooth-tiger-long-ass mud flaps. 17" XD Revolver rims, 265/75/17 BFG AT KO's. Ripped out the crappy FM Modulator & installed a PA-15-toy interface. OEM bed matt.
    I've noticed around speeds of 25-30, & around 40 or so,when I let off the gas, the auto trans drops a gear. It's noticable, not earth shattering though. The Dealership said the new trucks are geared lower like cars & it is normal??

    Both of my 95's would coast for awhile till the truck slowed down...

    Just weird.

    my truck doesnt downshift at all when i let off the throttle, i'm at somewhere around 14k miles since i bought it new in May 07, yea i know i drive too much haha, anyway mine coasts fine and dandy, altho it does seem to drag down faster than a couple other cars i've owned, probably due to the fact that it's a truck not a talon
