    Single cabs stopped the SR5 package for the model year 2011

    -2011 Source Book-
    "SR5 Package (SE) is deleted for Regular Cab 4x4
    models (7503 & 7504)" (7503 is the model code for the 4x4 Single Cab and 7503 is the model code for 4x2 Single Cab)

    and I went back as far as 2008 (as far as my source books go) and there was never a TRD package available for the Single Cabs. I've seen some, so I thought they were available, but maybe those people just bought the stickers. I am only going by what my Toyota training website provides me. I wasn't w/ Toyota back then. (started in 2010)

    Can you see when you shift into 4lo if the Auto LSD light comes on ? It's on the left side of the dash .

    I don't think the 2.7 could ever feel fast.. I have the auto with 265's and its slow as phuck. I would just regear

    well i have a 2.5" lift on a RC 2wd 5lug 5spd 4.10s with light aluminum wheels. but it will be the same as a stock height 6lug. key for speed with the 4cyl is to keep the truck, and especially rotating masses, as light as possible.

    I wouldn't say "fast" but I'm happy with my stock 2.7..I drive over 300 miles a week so keeping fuel in the tank is more my need than speed. Down the road I wouldn't mind waking it up a bit..what would people say is a good way to get a little extra HP?

    I have some 2" drop blocks that you could start with that came off when I put on my 3" drops. Take a look over at the street truck section, the first two threads are loaded with info.

    he can't use those. he is SOA. IMO sell the 6lug and get a 5lug its geared right, lighter, and cheaper. easier to lower too.

    That sounds like a plan. I wish I could have the best of both worlds.

    sounds like a lot of effort. i mean unless youre made of money, invest your work into something more useful. no offense.

    Wow. I didn't even know short-cab Tacos existed. Pretty choked that Toyota would sell them in the US but not here (Alberta). Almost makes me want to shoot across the border and bring one up.
    How are they leg-room/comfort wise compared to the access cab?

    I'm 6' tall and pretty wide - I'm perfectly comfortable in it.

    If you're over 6'1"-6'2" you might not enjoy it as much.

    I'm 6'4" and 250, it's manageable as long as the bench is all of the way back. I'm driving from KC, to Lincoln, to Winter Park and back the next week, and it will be just fine.
