I had a 03 access cab and am looking for a replacment in a double cab. Question when did the 5 speed trannies come out? The 4.7 got its HP boost in 04 I think.

The 5-spd trannies and 4.7 HP boost didn't come till 2005...the 05-06's are the one's with the 5-speed and the VVT-i.

Hmmmmmm.....
When I was checking out the 07 Tundra recently...my dealer insisted that my 04 DC has a 5 speed....so much so that he went outside to check it. Then came in and said mine didn't have it (duh....I think I might have noticed!) but it was an option in 04.......if so, I wish I would've known.....I think that would be a great feature on my truck! :D
Next time....next time...... :devil:
(So maybe it was an option on the '04's?)

there have always been manual tranny options... only for the V6's though. Toyota never made a 4.7 with a manual transmission.
I know that...but he's referring to the 5-spd AUTOMATIC transmission not the 5-spd manual!:D

The five speed auto didn't come out until '05. Your dealer is incorrect.

I am looking at a 04 and the engine is badged as a iforce and the tailgate has the same badge on it. The truck shows a manufacture date of 11/03 on the door. Still not sure on the number of gears in the tranny, but looks like the motors were upgraded in 04 to me.

THE 5 SPEED MAKES THE BIG DIFFERENCE WHEN TOWING. NOT SO MUCH THE HSPWR WHICH IS ONLY 283. TORQUE IS THE IMPORTANT #.THE TUNDRA WITH THE 4 SPD DOESNT PULL WELL BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND.
