    Hey guys, So while I was trying to tow someone out of a mud pit i was slowly getting head way on it, shifted to second and it just completely ground the siht out of second gear. I stopped, started in first and then tried second again once the RPMs got up around 4000 and got the same result. It felt like there was no clutch at all, just strait to grinding gears again. my clutch is now fkuked. shifting to second gear is especially crappy, if i try shifting around 4000 it's even worse now. The other gears do not seem all that bad, i can take it to higher RPM and shift from 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to 4th and so on with out much trouble. The truck has 45,500 kms on it and i just upgraded the tires to 31s. other then that it's just got the URD TCAI. gonna be kinda hard to hide that hole thought..... Not too sure what to think, other then kinda pissed off... I have been driving standard for over 10 years so im not a newbie to it.

    @ 45,500 km you should still be under factory warranty, there was an Issue with the 6-speed trannies crapping out on people on the 05 and some 06 tacos. Take to the dealer and have them check it out.
