    After driving a manual daily for the last 6 years in mostly stop and go city traffic I'm so happy to have an automatic again.

    That said I am glad that I know how to drive manual just in case it ever comes up. Lots of people my age and younger don't know how. (Insert millennial anti theft device joke here)

    I had a 2019 OR manual and loved it, but I had to trade it in for a 2021 auto because I am getting left knee surgery and won't be able to use the clutch for some time. Age and careless youth took it's toll. It was fun though.

    I don't believe the 2016 - 2017 4 banger 5 Speed MT had a 2 wheel drive option either.

    My 2017 SR, MT is 4x4. I was only looking at 4 X 4's, so I don't recall if the MT was also offered in 2 X 4.

    "I predict that it won't be long and we will lose Lo range as well." Tell me about it. My ex had a 2001 Ford Escape "4x4". After we had it a couple of years, I decide to take my kids off-roading and when I reached for the rotating knob, there was no 4Lo. I couldn't freaking believe it....

    Well the 2014 model sure did and it's been my unicorn hunt the past couple of years. Specificlly, the 2014 2WD 2-door 4-cyl 5-speed manuel shortbed. This was the last year Toyota offered this configuration. If ya see one for sale, please PM me....

    Thanks. My wife had hers done too, but I'm happy with the auto also.

    It's a losing arguement. There's no win here.

    I tweaked my left knee bad enough to not even be able to walk on it. Still, the Taco was no issue to drive.


    I can't imagine what folks do when they hurt their right leg?

    Steering wheel controls for people with disabilities. Somewhere there has to be somebody that’s done a pedal-to-paddle clutch conversion. Put the paddle on the shifter and a servo on the slave cylinder.

    So, an SMG gearbox for the Taco?

    I had a broken left humerus and I drove in the snow, in a front wheel drive car, manual transmission, no power steering. Mostly cuz no one else could decipher the gearbox. It was a process to turn a corner.

    Nice!

    My wife drove our car with a blown steering rack for 3mo, while pregnant. To this day, I'm surprised I never got a going-into-labor call because it. We thankfully replaced that PoS a couple months before our baby arrived.

    I love my manual trans. better all around it feels like the truck was made to be manual. You can't beat it in the snow with the ability to up shift as needed or down shift as needed also the clutch cancel button for emergencies is another great option you can use the starter motor while in first gear 4wheel hi or low to get out of a tight situation.

    Upon further review, the ruling on the field has been changed.... BigBue losses posession of the fake shortbed on the 2014 Tacoma. radclerk1 firmly pointed out that there is no such thing, therefore, radclerk takes over on downs at BigBue's 10-yard line. First and goal.....

    "Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin, into the future". God it sucks getting old, the first thing to go is the memory. Lol. Ok Vic you got me on one minor technicality. I really thought it was a shortbed. Maybe now it's not so unicorn. Lol.
