    My clutch pedal creaks a little with 9k on the clock, but damn that is a loud squeak! So far I havn't had any issue with the clutch slipping or anything. I have a civic with over 100k on the stock clutch. There is no excuse for the clutches on these trucks.

    After a year of searching, I finally found a camper shell for a regular cab! I've got a thule rack ready to go on it when I get some time. It needs painted (obviously). I think that will be my undertaking for this weekend. Also my wheels were beat up pretty bad when I got my tires put on. It looks like they let a monkey loose with a scraper. So they need painted soon which I believe I'm going to do a gunmetal rather then black. I also toyed with the idea of bronze since I love the bronze Trd wheels but I'm afraid it will look exactly what it is, me trying to hard and to cheap to buy the real ones haha. Gunmetal? Bronze? Even white? Which should I do?

    i think you're referring to me..duplicolor bronze...but there was originally another guy(SN: ecriv) with a mgm dclb who painted his sports bronze too which led me to try it out. i'm liking them so far

    That bronze does look good.I think I will try it out and if I don't like it just repaint them.

    Btw I love the bed stickers 671taco. I saw your pics a few months ago and decided that's where mine needed to go also! [​IMG]

    on another note, i posted this up in the wheel section, maybe someone in here can shed some light on this. we all know with the 2.7 motor we need to be cautious of how much extra weight we put on our trucks because we will notice it.

    i did my research and my new wheel tire combo should be about 3-4 lbs less per wheel than my previous setup. i didnt want to negatively affect gas mileage or performance or drivability. i went from stock steel base wheels and p265 70 16 hankooks to scs f5 wheels and p265 75 16 hankooks. i figured with this decrease in rotational weight per wheel, i shouldnt notice a distance at the least...possibly get a little better? well, i find myself having to downshift up hills that i didnt have to downshift to go up before (at the same speeds). am i having this issue now because my tire is a whole .5" bigger in diameter, or is there something else i didnt take into account in my research?

    Are you serious.....

    No way!

    Looks like I am going to need to order a 2014 RC AT to get my bucket seats and be done with it.

    I am still going to see what Toyota says officially,

    2009 4WD Reg cab Taco. Keepin it simple.
    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. FS to go a good home. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    might have to rob a bank or something to buy one next year so I have it in 20 years when the 2009 craps out. pull out my 2014 in 2034. Retro ?
