    I post this here, but if it's the wrong place, let me know !!!
    2011 Tacoma TRD 4X4 Automatic, Lift kit 3,5", I think I have some problems qith my transmission. When the truck shift betweeen 3 and 4, the truck give some little stroke and when he has finish is shifting, the little strokes stop. If I shift very fast, the problem doesn't appear... Another things, sometimes, I feel un rumble in the transmission, when I release the gas, they stop...

    Another things!, I don't have any control on my light, the headlight and back light are always open day and night... if I turn the button to open or close somethings, nothing happens...

    Your headlights are open and your transmission is a male that strokes itself, unless of course you shift quickly enough?

    I'm thoroughly confused.

    I don't have any control on my headlights with the normal headlight control... Normally, if you want to turn off your headlight and run on daylight you are normally able to...

    For my transmission, when I accelerate slowly, I feel little stroke when the truck shift from 3 to 4 the truck shake a little bit. If I accelerate very fast, nothing happens... no problem...

    Solutions ?

    If i'm reading this correctly (and i'm probably not) your getting vibration in the drive-line from the lift... might need to look into getting the drive-line angles corrected.
    As far as the dash instrument panel lighting it's normal for it to be on during the day even with the headlights off... just not as bright.
