    Hello Taco Nuts!

    I've had my new Taco for a couple of weeks now and have been lurking around here, learning and reading a ton. I got my 2010 double cab Sport Taco on the last day of cash for clunkers. Traded in a 2002 Land Rover Discovery II. Love, hate relationship there. My wife uses it mostly for her business and I've been hauling firewood and anything else that will fit on my 5x10 utility trailer. We chose the Taco cause it qualified for the $4500 rebate, Toyota's rep. and the fact that it should tow the 2 horse trailer with no problems.

    Been reading about the TSB for the rear suspension and think it will be something that I will need to do because of the towing. Went to the dealer and asked the service rep if they had done many. Either he was not talking much, or I knew way more about it because of this forum than he did. He basically said that I would need to document the problem and that my VIN number would have to be included in the TSB for them to fix it. I have springs that end in K. Are these upgraded?

    Would also like to say thanks to all for all the great info and lookin' forward to lots of fun ahead!

    Steve

    High Bridge/Clinton area. Use to have an 78'FJ40 and love that to death! One day I'll get another one of those. Probably need to get a job first though:D
