  1. Towing Upgrades

    Towing
    A WD hitch will serve you better than the airbags.
  2. Manual transmission and towing (again)

    Tacoma
    Is the MT cheaper than the AT? When I got mine they were the same price. After almost 100K miles with me not being nice to the clutch (~30,000 of those miles have been with a 4000 lb or heavier trailer in tow) it is working just fine. I can't say the same for the syncros however. If you do get...
  3. 2006 TRD sport, want lockers

    Tacoma
    First of all, isn't an '06 already out of the factory warranty? Second, I believe that if there was a warranty issue that the dealer would check your vin and see that that equipment was not factory installed in your truck so they wouldn't warranty it anyway. And third, yes it will fit. If you...
  4. Wheel stats

    Tacoma
    All the six lug will fit on all the other six lug assuming the wheel is of a large enough diameter to clear the brakes.
  5. Need help determining which front spacer lift to use, help!

    Tacoma
    Measure from the ground to the rear fender and then the same thing on the front. The difference between these 2 will be the front lift required for "level". 2.5" is about the max w/o a diff drop needed. 3" is about the max with a diff drop. Once you have determined what it will take for "level"...
  6. 2000 Tundra, need help/recommendations wiring from square one

    Towing
    I can't help with the tundra specific stuff but I can help with the generic stuff. The standard 7 pin: +12VDC keyed (this is likely the larger gauge one you mentioned. It is usually used in travel trailers to charge the batteries, also useful for running some accessories in enclosed trailers)...
  7. Things to consider when looking for a 2005 or newer Tacoma

    Tacoma
    I believe that the 2009+ TRD Off Road package still has the electronically controlled mechanical locker, the difference is that in 2009 they added ATRAC system which is the ABS linked system that tries to control wheel slippage. The mechanical locker is still available with the OR package. Of...
  8. Things to consider when looking for a 2005 or newer Tacoma

    Tacoma
    No sir, my 2007 TRD Off Road has an E-locker in the rear.
  9. Things to consider when looking for a 2005 or newer Tacoma

    Tacoma
    The TRD off road has the rear locker. I believe it also has 3.73 gears.

  11. TSB SU006-007 addresses bottoming-out problem

    Tacoma
    The super springs will take care of your problem. They will effectively stiffen the spring rate which will help with the bottoming.
  12. 5gal Air Tank: Tire Volume Equivalent?

    Off-Roading
    Gas Equation: PV = nRT where, P = pressure, V = volume, n = moles of gas, T = temperature, R = 8.314 J K-1 mol-1, ideal gas constant. See this and this for more info. To do the calculation you will need to find out the volume of the tires. This can be estimated by taking the volume of a...
  13. air box

    Tacoma
    I took mine out ~40,000 miles ago and have not noticed any difference. I would leave it.
  14. 2010 4.6 Towing 6000lb TT through the Canadian Rockies?

    Towing
    I have towed a similar trailer with my 07 tacoma with the 4.0 and 6 speed. It did quite well other than the fuel mileage. I only got up to about 7000 feet however. Never dropped below the speed limit and was able to regain speed if I got stuck behind a slower vehicle on a hill. I imagine that...
  15. Wiring Diagram for Battery on Trailer

    Towing
    If your truck has the factory towing package it should have that wire already in the 7flat trailer plug. The flip up cover over the plug should tell you which one it is. If all that is there then you should just need a wire from the right terminal to the battery. That circuit is already fused in...
  16. Another Tundra 5th Wheel Capacity ??

    Towing
    I agree with Tom. Too much trailer for the tundra. (or any other half ton)
  17. 2010 Crew Max with short bed 5th wheel help

    Towing
    This is what will allow you to tow a 5th wheel with the short bed.
  18. Towing a CJ-7 Cross Country

    Tacoma
    I would flat tow before using a dolly if flat towing is an option. If you don't want to use a tow bar then a dolly is a good option. However, IMO the best option would be to rent a trailer from Uhaul or similar and tow it that way. The trailer will weigh ~1800-2000 lbs and the Tacoma is rated to...
  19. New Toy to Build

    Off-Roading
    I like the new tacoma style as well except for the excessive venting. It may or may not serve a purpose but IMO it is fugly. So that puts my other choice to the 80's style.
  20. Ideas on restoring towing capacity with Deaver AALs on '05 DC

    Towing
    You can re-install the factory overload using longer u-bolts and a new center pin. (the bolt that holds all the springs together and locates them on the axle) This would be the cheapest but maybe not the best option. Another option would be the bumpstops listed above. A third option would be...
