    Hey everyone! my names Jimmy new here from nova area. I got an 07 taco 2 12in kickers, pioneer z3 head unit, hid, xbox 360 installed and a few other small things. I tow my race car with it, it struggles but keeps it going. I hope to learn a little more about towing here and some possible upgrades. I'm familiar with forums and know how to search but please feel free to leave a helpfull link on ways to upgrage truck for towing.

    The TRD S/C is pretty much bolt-on. The only thing you need to do afterwards is go to the dealer to get the ECU reflashed. I got mine for ~$3500 shipped using Bing and eBay cash back programs. The price fluctuates a little. I think its around $38-3900 now. I was quoted $7-800 for installation but I decided to do it myself and its not too hard.
