    When pushing the truck towing or wheeling I could feel the transmission heat coming through the floor but I've never had any real problems with trans temperatures. I went ahead anyway and installed a Hayden 678 transmission cooler. Put it inline after the OE unit in the radiator.
    I made a little bracket out of a piece of scrap metal I had laying around, then hit it (the bracket and screws) with some bedliner to help with rust and rock chips.

    Nice Truck, Nice Color !! I have an '02 Tacoma with the same Drivetrain & wonder how is the Detroit True Trac working for you ? Do you recall what the Model number was for the True Trac ? I"m really interested in that Unit for mine . I have the Open Diff.-30 spline -8.4 rg -2.7 -Auto . Thanks

    I love the TT so far. Gives extra traction off road but is virtually unnoticeable on the road. You can feel a little squirm when turning away from a stop when it's raining but nothing that would be uncomfortable.
    I have about 6000 miles on mine now along with half a dozen fairly tough off-road trips. Zero issues.

    It's part number 913A541. I got it from Summit along with some RG paint.
    You will also need two carrier bearings because getting the old ones off will destroy them 99% of the time. Unfortunately the bearings are a dealer item and like $40 each.

    Snowman, Sounds like the type of unit I've been looking for Both on & off road ! Thanks for the part # and the advice on the Diff. carrier bearings.

    Nice rig Snowman! Funny how inanimate objects help with taco mods. That's why I got sliders coming...
    Always wondered what the difference between 'Impulse red' and'Sunfire Pearl red' is....
    What type light bar is yours?
    I put a 23"? On my 85, throws some good light pattern for sure, but I'm jonesin for some 170 LightForce HIDs some day.
