    on it and it"ll last you many more miles.

    There was a noise,it wasn't a clanking sound,more like a loud knock, when engaging.

    2-speed electronically controlled transfer case limited slip differential. Well that's what the paperwork says. But I honestly don't know the different choices.

    Why hello everyone.

    I have owned a 2007 TRD 4 door for nearly two years now.

    I've put it through the paces. I get up to all kinds of strange and wonderful business and my Tacoma holds up to it all. It's the kind of vehicle that you can splash through a construction site all day, clean-off, and pick up a date in the evening and fit into a car-park.

    I love mine. But I am hard on it.

    Apparently you can get the dealership to put in a 4-leaf axle and a better tailgate if it's got less than 36000 clicks. (I past that mile stone a long long time ago.)

    I am looking at getting relentless bumpers put on mine, getting a better tailgate -- unloading the logs illustrated pretty much folded it in half-- and doing something about the rear suspension for heavy loads.

    Hoping to get great ideas from everyone here on how to slowly turn my Tacoma into an abomination.

    ok, rear locking diff, and the tow package. I just figured out that I got a pretty cool truck, no wonder the salesman at the dealership was looking at me l like I was an idiot

    I find the my particular bed cover is great, up until the point when it isn't. That is to say the moment I have something 6' long that is taller than the box and interferes with the rolled up cover.

    And it also sorts out all the finest road dust and deposits a thin layer of it on the contents of the box.

    Other than that its great.
