    Would putting the 2011 Tundra in 4x drive while going down very steep hills, for say 20 miles, with a lot of switchbacks, be advisable? That is, would the truck rpms remain constant while in first gear rather than continue to increase as it does while in 2x? I want to minimize braking. I have...

    My brother recently got married so as his best man I took him and some friends to Bunkers Resort at Williams Lake in WA. We did a lot of drinking, swimming and karaoke. We even did some cliff jumping. Overall it was blast. Towed a 33' TT weighing roughly 7000 lbs. I didn't use a stabilizing...

    Pretty sure vehicle has factory towing package, as the hitch and plug look like others I saw which did. Can't find the connector under the dash/kick plate to plug into. On 2008 YT video it is hidden, but NOT the same as my setup. Don't want to rummage around much without know where I should...

    We have a 2013 Tundra DC w/6.5' box and are about to buy our first 5th wheel camper. Can you experienced folks please advise on which 5er hitch to buy? - Do I need a slider, or will a standard hitch work for us? - Manual vs. auto sliders? - I think the turnover hitches are nifty, but for the...

    Hi - I'm looking at purchasing a Tundra to tow a boat and trailer of about 7000 lbs. The truck I'm looking at, the owner says it has 4.10 gears and the tow/haul option. I thought the tow package added the 4.30 gears. How do I tell if it has the towing package that will tow the listed...
