    New potential DCSB 4x4 Tacoma owner here.
    Given that I may never tow or only tow 1000-2000 lbs, do I want the supplemental oil and tranny coolers?
    Not sure if its an option with TRD Sport but I would rather NOT have more equipment to break/maintain than I really need. Does that stuff add weight, impede access to other things, need fluid changing...etc?

    Nothing changes as far as maintenance goes. Even not towing they are nice to have.

    Thanks guys. Looks like there is no downside to having them.

    defiantly no negatives, just positives.
