    I am intrigued by this. I just got my SR '23. I am only at 700 miles and have been trying to gingerly break her in. But I do notice this hunting of gears. I desperately wanted the MT but the wife threw a temper tantrum because I need her to be able to drive it. Is the OTT tune relavant to the 2.7L inline 4? Or is this just a V6 thing? Not so much looking to eek out more performance but if I can improve throttle response and the gear hunting, it would be a great +.

    Is that an ARE? I am currently shopping for one. Torn between the LEER and the ARE.

    Love that switch panel, would you mind sharing a link?

    This thread is a problem.. I need to stop coming here lol

    Colour blindness is why I get black trucks with black wheels.

    Give it some time. These trucks seem to learn your driving habits and make adjustments... I have a 4x4 4 cyl SR and ECT PWR helps me on the highway.. I'm at 45k now and it feels broken in finally seems to have more pep. It's a turd... But I just hit ECT when I want more response.......I never noticed a difference in my V6 when I used this feature.....it makes a big difference in the 4 banger

    I tested out my new stove setup at my buddies farm out by their dirt bike track. Field lunch. I finished this new stove integration late last season so I didn't end up testing it last year. Pizza, ribeye, burgers and hotdogs - success!

    Used the truck to pick up a nice clean 4hp outboard motor. Also got a free 23 year old trolling motor thats full of spiders.
    Now I need to build a mount in the bed for the outboard since I cant leave it on the boat while driving (plastic hull boat)

    For those who dont know, boat gas tanks and fuel lines are stupid expensive.... 3 gallon tank and fuel line with fittings and bulb cost me $130!

    Yep. We have two other vehicles, both with wireless Car Play and they work that way too. Just wasn't sure if that particular adapter would and apparently it does.

    I am looking to install the door sill protectors but do not know how to align them front to back. I have the instructions, which show an alignment point which I do not see on the truck. A search brought up your post, so I figured I would ask you. Also, mine seem to be sticky adhesive, so what to you mean by “wet method?” Any guidance would be appreciated.

    The new to me Tacoma had a big day today.

    Popped in the meso map and dome light, 67 taco rail, and put in the gator liners.

    Moved outside and removed the front air dam, swapped the lows, highs, and fogs to led with switchbacks in the fogs, did the ac drain mod, rear diff breather relocate to the tail light, and while the tail light was off swapped the reverse lights to led and put the total chaos bed stiffeners in. Finished up the day by taking off the chrome steps and the TRD stickers on the bed.
