    New to Tacomas, but not to Toyotas.

    Had my 1979 2WD truck until I bought a 1999 6-Cyl 4Runner used in 2000. Just bought a 2007 4.0 6-Cyl Prerunner Access Cab 2WD (w/ stock tow package) in December and love it. No mods yet.

    I'll use it to tow a 2007 Fun Finder X139 travel trailer (1850 lbs. dry weight) to and from MI. The 4Runner worked OK, but I'm thinking the Taco will work a lot better.

    Anyway, I hope to learn a great deal from this forum.

    Happy New Year and kindest regards to all!

    Six degrees of separation. My wife teaches adjunct for UNM up here in Farmington. She's a professor at San Juan College. I got my master's from UNM. Go Lobos!
