    Can anyone on here take a picture from the top, from the back seat and from the passenger seat of their manual shifter? I would like to see all 3 views. My dealership only has Auto's on the lot and i wanted to see what a manual shift looks like.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Also, do you have a short throw on it? or not really worth it in the Taco?


    Thanks.

    Got to ask. Are you deciding on which transmission to purchase based on looks? :confused:

    Hahaha, ya that is pretty weird but at the end of the day today if no one has done it I will take some for you.


    I bought a short throw kit, but never put it in after a few people have reported pieces breaking off and falling in the transmission.

    Stock 5 speed pic uploading. Are you thinking of getting a 5 or 6 speed? Some of the 6 speed owners have problems shifting and get the short throw to make shifting easier.

    Awesome..... Thank you.

    I have been going back and forth on getting either a Auto or Manual.
    I have seen many pics (and at car lot) of auto's, but haven't seen any standards. I drive a manual for work and like the control, but gets to be a pain at times driving through traffic all day. Some vehicles have a crappy looking stick shift setup, and others have a nice looking one. So wanted to see what they looked like to see how nice and clean it looked or not.

    Thanks you for posting those pictures for me.

    I think it will be a manual. 1 more question...... What is that lever that says press button and turn? what does it do?

    I didnt know they still had the e-brake like that. My '95 (automatic) had that, and when I got my 2011 I thought they switched all Tacos to the foot e-brake.

    Foot = automatic.
    Pull handle = manual.

    At least for the current units.

    It is useful for starting out on very steep grades as it pops clean and fast when twisted.

    Well if you leave the button in, and the handle twisted, you could actually use this as an emergency brake. The foot ones .. not so much

    Are you getting the 4 or 6 cylinder?

    Cause if you're going 6, get the auto. It's far far better.

    x2 6 speed gets worse mileage, and has a lot of quirks. not to mention i dont know if toyota ever did anything about the throwout bearing issues.

    And the Auto has access to all the gears like the manual and it's the A750 taken from the 4.7L V8. Plenty beefy.

    It would be the V6 i would be getting..... Maybe i might get the Auto then if that's the case. I have no problems with having either transmission as i can drive both.

    Thanks everyone.
