    so here's my "hello" just picked up a 06 AC 4x4 TRD sport today and i've got a few questions, how can i tell if my truck has the "towing package" i didn't know if just the hitch made this a towing model, and my front 2 mudflaps are missing, where can i pick up a pair of oem ones online? searched around a little and didn't come up with much

    other than that i think i got it figured out, love the truck so far!! thanks in advance!

    Most likely if you have the hitch you have the towing package. And keep a lookout on here in the for sale section. I see mudflaps every now and then. Lots of people take them off. Myself included. Welcome!

    if you have the towing package you'll have a hitch, a 7-pin plug in the back, also the biggest give away is a small radiator attached to the front of your main radiator

    Nope not a 6mt, originally that's what I wanted but I got alot of mixed reviews about the 6mt, this is the first auto I've owned in 11yrs, so that makes it my first auto ever, I still have a mt car to fill the need when i miss it

    I thought that the tow package included an oil cooler? Mine has factory tow package and there are two coolant hoses just below the oil filter. Mine also has a pink fan clutch, I thought that meant tow package also.

    Maybe someone will chime in and correct me.
