    Hello everyone. I am new here and have several questions. I have been reading your site for sometime now and you seem to have a real nice group here. First off, I am looking at purchasing a 2006 extended cab 4x4 sr5 with a 6 speed manual. It's pretty basic which is what I want. I have only looked at it on the internet and plan to go look at it on Monday (have to travel about 200 miles). Is there anything in particular I need to look for such as TSB's or recalls that need done or anything else a fellow should look for?
    2nd question.
    It does not have a receiver hitch. If a Tacoma comes with a "towing package" what all does it include. I looked on the Toyota website and it appears all it consists of is the hitch itself. Most vehicles have upgraded tranny coolers, alternator, etc. that come with the towing package.
    I currently have a 2008 Nissan Titan which I really like but it is just more pickup than I need and want. The dealership has agreed to pay off my pickup so all I would be financing is the new (used) Tacoma. So if all goes through I may be a new Tacoma owner.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    welcome to tw! most of the tsb's are listed on here somewhere (tsb is not a recall, so if your truck doesnt have it you dont have to worry too much!). how many miles? if its close to 36 000 miles you might want to find the tsb's that would affect your activities (i.e. rear suspension upgrade, tail gate tsb).

    i have the trd package and it has the hitch, tranny cooler, upgraded alternator, i think that is all (can't really help you with this one!)

    heres the link for the tsb's


    hope this helps!
