    I just found the tsb list and am freakin out. I have heard some knocking/clicking from under the truck a few times while on rougher roads. also the AAL TSB, should I have it done? I have seen that they have a couple body and suspension TSB. WTF, what to do? Any 2011 tacos had any work done on these

    calm down, TSB's are for trucks that are having a problem or that they just dont work for the individual owner. they are not reliability or safety issues normally. the rear leaf spring TSB may be for you if you carry a lot of weight on a regular basis. it will stop the springs from bottoming out. Good luck with all the TSB. there are always TSB's on every vehicle i have ever had.

    Holy crap, I found an entire REPAIR MANUAL just full of repairs like replacing the oil pump, removing and reinstalling the heads, removing and replacing pistons, adjusting valve clearances, testing the A/C charge, adjusting the parking brake, setting the clearances for the ring and pinion gear, and thousands of other things!

    Should I have all of those things done?

    This is the right answer. The TSB system is a system for the service folks to use for help in diagnosing and fixing "weird" or hard to diagnose problems. If you haven't had a problems with the truck- then you are probably good to go.

    I had the suspension TSB done due to bottoming out while hauling a load of floor tile. It fixed it. I am having the intermediate shaft TSB done because of knocking in the steering shaft while on gravel/dirt roads. I have a radio that is full of static, they have ordered a new one. My AC fan chirps on low, they have oredered a felt wrap kit for it. My lumbar support does not remain where set, they have asked that I schedule time to drop it off so they can open the seat up.

    These were all problems experienced, and luckily the 2 big ones had a TSB to save me and the dealer the troubleshooting time.

    FWIW, 99% of taco owners probably don't haul anything or drive off road, so the suspension and steering arent an issue.
