    It's called the taco lean. Your battery and gas tank are on the driver side, causing it to lean towards that side.

    that much of a difference from rear passenger to driver front?

    what's the standard rear measurements? I was going to do a lift but are my leafs sagging enough to need to replace?

    The Ultra Gauge mount. I installed mine tonight but the problem is I didn't get the same mount as you, I got the window mount.

    Buttons are awesome because you can quickly mute the Bieber at intersections so no one hears you listening to him LOL :anonymous: :anonymous:

    Buried her in a mud pit. I told myself to check the depth of the water, but thought I could see the bottom and it didn't look deep... It was! Had to get a tow, the Silverado with us wasn't up to it! No harm done though, just sunk into the mud. Engine bays still clean and I didn't get far enough to bury the exhaust, just the dif! So the second thing I did for my Tacoma today was order a hi-lift. Shouldn't have been so brave without it!

    How is a hi-lift going to help you when you're sunk up to the axle in a pool of muddy water? :confused:

    Maybe use the Hi-Lift as a depth gauge?

    Hi-Lift Jack + Hi-Lift Offroad Recovery Kit + 25' of 3/8" Grade 70 chain? That's what I'm carrying in lieu of a winch. Inchworming isn't fast, but neither is being stuck.

    What steering wheel button are you talking about? The buttons on the steering wheel come like that, at least mine did. Might be just a JBL thing, not sure. The buttons I see added are the three added right below the air vent.

    Ope my bad. Haha I thought he added the audio control button on his steering wheel. Since the TRD Sport only has them. I guess I was looking at it differently, or not?haha.
