    Nice Tundra! I really liked that size for the Tundra. I saw a new one the other day and was blown away by how massive it is. Full size pickup trucks are huge these days.

    Diesel, short bed... just perfect for efficient dirt transport. I saw some Chevy's and Nissans too and they were all pretty dialed.

    Definitely looking for a four door/4x4 like your rig. Boyfriend has his heart set on a new one, but a older one makes more sense. In the meantime, I found a mod to give the bench seat a reclining option. Just need to grind some metal. Might have to give that a try

    Ahh, your front seat doesn't recline. That is SWEEET for a long drive. Passenger will stay awake.

    Stay away from those new Tacos. So expensive for the same damn truck with cosmetic updates. Just be patient with the old Taco hunting.

    I have been trying to keep up with the global variants. Amazing how many midsized don't even have rear lockers. If I was buying one in South America or Australia I'd go with the Ranger or Hilux for sure.

    I hear it sometimes. Actually more often than I hear Taco. I'm in the Auburn area though.

    A lot of the trucks in Chile looked identical. 4-door, short bed, rollbar, diesel and very capable.

    Interested to see how this works. I need to upgrade my stereo... waiting for an Airplay / CarPlay unit to go on sale.

    My Taco came with all that. If you have the long bed with a shell you will definitely need the cam . And I'm actually surprised how well the factory JBL stereo performs

    Ha! Love it! I debated the long bed vs. short bed for hecka days. Went with the short bed b/c that model comes stock with a locking rear diff, which saved me from having to install an ARB.

    I replaced the stock inner tailgate panel, which is plastic, with a big piece of reinforced plate steel, so I can put the moto in the bed without worrying about the tailgate folding.

    I wasn't stoked on getting a trailer. But my buddies were telling me I'd like it and I do. It's light. Pulls straight. And loading/unloading is super easy cuz it's low to the ground.

    Ok. Real talk. How hard was this install? After checking yours out, it looks like a sweet upgrade.

    Also curious, how hard was wiring the back up cam?

    The radio was about 2 hours and the camera was 4.

    There's a few kits and tools needed so I will detail them tomorrow.

    Went to Best Buy to play with the unit you have installed. They had the AppRadio 4 on sale for $300. That's twice the money, BUT you get Carplay. The only crappy thing is you have to plug your phone in for that feature to work. LAME.

    I have a really basic aftermarket head unit in my car, so I'd be doing this to get bluetooth, hands free phonecalls, and displaying maps on the head unit. Don't really need the backup cam, although it would be nice since I have a 30% tint on my rear windows.

    Get you one of these, or do like I did, model down and build it out to suit.
    i rolled past all kinds of full size trucks in my titan last week in the tahoe blizzard. most folks w/4wd vehicles don't have the right tires or even know how to drive in the snow. there was a brand new dodge ecodiesel parked in front of me....dudes were asking me to leave so they could back out (we were parked parallel along a snow bank, the lot plow made two passes leaving a large berm) i sat there, drank my beer took my time, kinda laughed at them because they were trying to tell me to leave so they could back out, instead of pull forward. dunno how they managed but their new dodge was sliding all over in 4wd and couldn't pull forward over the berm.

    Gots two trucks, love them both even though they're short bed mall crawlers (say what you want). Kinda, wanted a sprinter...we'll probably still end up gettin one in few years when some of the kinks are worked out of the new 4x4 ones. Cheaper than a condo in Tahoe!

    Full disclosure... you know i experienced serious problems after the install right?

    So the install didn't look good at first as it looked like the Taco threw up on me.

    So I went to the internets and the instructions for this Compton edition radio said connect all ground wires to the OG.

    It was working awesome with good bass from my stock speakers. But as I put the volumes up, the lights FREAKED out!

    And here's the backup camera problem.

    And then when I installed the rear camera, gangster music would come on every time.

    That is some funny a$$ $hizzle. That song is strangely appropriate.....almost like there is a "backup music" setting.

    I'm on my second tundra. Put 220K miles on our last first generation tundra and pretty much did nothing but change the fluids, filters and timing belt the whole time. It sold for a good price too, so that encouraged me to get another one.

    It's a lot bigger than the first gen although it has a shorter bed. The roomy cab makes it awesome for road trips and it tows our trailer great. It also has a ton more power than the first gen which can get pretty fun....




    The 5.5 foot bed is a little annoying when hauling motos- I can barely get two in with the tailgate closed if I'm creative. It works pretty good for one.

    It's also an awesome shuttle rig, although the backup camera becomes useless when you've got a full load of bikes on the tailgate.

    Here's the tools needed. Gotta have the and the kits for your specific vehicle.

    Trim panel pry tools

    Tacoma mounting kit

    Tacoma wire harness kit

    wire stripper and connector crimper

    Luckily, Amazon makes buying all the specialty stuff easy. And youtube is there to help. The backup camera wiring is a big undertaking so I wouldn't recommend that unless you really need it. For me though and that tacoma boat, best upgrade ever.

    Thanks, great to hear. I am needing to replace my once problem-free car with something else soon, and have been looking at affordable (non-Audi-dollars) hatchbacks and wagons, the XV seems to fit the bill, and comes with a 5-speed manual transmixer.

    When I replaced my leaf's on my 2000 taco, I went with the wheelers-offroad branded ones. Huge difference. I remember reading that they were being made by OME or one of the other name brand suspension makers.

    The auto CVT is good. It utilizes the available power better and it gets better mileage.

    That squeakiness may be due to wear on the bushings at each end of the leafs. You might check them. And are all the leaves in the correct place -- meaning within the shackles at the axle? Can't really tell from the pic, but they look like they might a little wonky.

    With the aftermarket leaf springs -- OME, Dakar, etc. -- people sometimes complain about a rough/stiffer ride but I think that's a little overblown.

    2nd leaf snapped and went out of place. Better now.

    My rear has an 'add a leaf' for a 3 inch leaf. It's pretty stiff and can be improved by a proper leaf stack for the lift. I'll do it if I can get Toyota to pay for it since these leafs are under recall and they're out of stock on the part.

    I got it fixed for now but just by going to a junk yard to get the part for that one side.Taco envy-img_4110.jpgTaco envy-img_4108.jpg

    With leafs you can build your own pack from junkyard springs. Good chance it'll ride better than an AAL as well! Souce: making two sets of springs for two different XJ's.

    Did you take a look at the VW Alltrack? S/SE models come w/a 6MT option. Same w/S model Sportwagen (both with/without AWD, but believe the Sportwagen is a 5MT not a 6). Clearance is a bit lower than the Crosstrek.

    BRO..... Don't get a VW. I think they need about 5-10 years to rebuild their ethics and their quality.

    So I just went through two VW Passats. Well taken care of. One was worthless at 110k miles, the other, worth zero at 130k miles. Meaning it would take more to repair them than what they're worth.

    One car, I took care of and pampered. But dumb repairs had to be done along the way and the Check Engine Light was like the Low Fuel light. On ALL the time.

    Very nice to drive under 50k miles but that's about it.

    The Crosstrek just putts around and still worth a lot of money at 70k miles.

    Just adding a consideration - the TSI Golfs of the most recent generation have been known (at least in reviews I've read) for their reliability. Though that being said they may not have driven past 70k. I can speak to my experience on my 2010 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 5MT.

    30k - new short block due to engine burning through 5qts of oil in 5k miles...covered by Subaru fortunately
    Circuitry issue with left turn signal that was misdiagnosed by Jiffy Lube and a Chicago Subaru dealership. Oregon dealer found it.
    New spark plugs at ~80k
    New clutch plate at ~80k (my dad has same model except 1 year newer with same issue)
    Seat warmer light issue at ~70k
    Had a puncture on one tire where I had to replace all the tires because of the symmetric AWD and the fact that the tread was too worn on the remaining 3 tires (according to Costco).

    So speaking for the 5MT, I don't recommend it. Maybe I got a lemon, but I was unimpressed. After 6.5 years/110k miles the car was worth about 25% of what it was purchased for. Not sure how that compares to VWs. I was worried that car was going to have more issues. I also don't know if there is a similar issue with tire replacement as the symmetric AWD (or 4 vs 2 tires if in the situation of a different vehicle), but that is an additional cost to consider. That generation Impreza with the MT was notorious for burning through oil that quickly. Even with synthetic oil it burned through almost it all by 5k even in normal driving habits/conditions.

    I don't blame ya. Its a lot of work, but cheap. Then there are deavers, they drive nice but they're pretty pricey.

    Did you just end up rebuilding the stock spring packs?

    Yeah, I just got a stock spring from the yard. Had to get the exact number. The 2nd leaf is hard to replace by itself as it has some braces/guides attached to it.

    $200 for one side.

    ...
    I think I hear what you're saying that experiences can be mixed.

    But as far as comparing the VW and Subaru for reliability and resale. I think there is no question Subaru is better.

    As far as ethics and cheating are concerned, harming the world or helping mountain biking.... I don't know. Tie?

    So my Mini Cooper was worth $35k new. I put 60k miles on it and 11 years later, had a ton of problems that were all fixed, it was worth $7k. If that was a Taco, it would be worth $25k.

    So a the end of the day Leopold, get a Tacoma. Cause this is the taco thread.

    Those single 3" add-a-leafs put so much stress on the leaf pack that breakage is inevitable. Look at the arching that the AAL forms on the leaf pack to generate lift. The progressive AAL is a better way to go if you don't want to spend on Deavers etc.

    To add to my Subaru adventure, I traded it in for a Turd Gen (MT of course).

    O/w I don't disagree, except maybe on reliability (but I'm biased with my experience with Subaru. We also have a 2015 GSW TDI 6MT w/<20k which has been great so far...longer term has yet to be determined).

    Awesome!! What is Deavers? Is that the best? What are other awesome leaf packs? I'll get Toyota to pay for it. They have a full-on recall on the leafs but they don't have it in stock. 2 months, maybe a year. And I told them mine is broken.

    Personally I would let Toyota replace the stock springs and then I would install the progressive AAL pack on my own. Kit comes with the u-bolts etc. Do one side at a time. I doubt Toyota will combine your aftermarket parts with their warranty leaf replacements. Deavers are complete, aftermarket leaf packs.

    Agreed.

    The strategy I'm looking at now though is to buy Deavers or OME now and get Toyota to pay for it!!

    It's been done but a little bit of a pain with documentation and processing. Long process if after the fact. But fast with pre-approval on their letterhead. Just don't know if I want to deal with it. I'm pretty happy with the current setup.

    I put these in the old taco after the old leafs were sagging badly and no qty of viagra would help. $499 a set. Supposedly made by Alcan or some other high end spring company. Dunno...but they worked awesome and gave me the lift to match my fox coil overs up front. https://wheelersoffroad.com/product/...af-spring-set/

    Tacoma Tough Club. Remember the one that survived the meteor strike? Or the one that floated away in high tide only to float back to shore w/o the kayaking owner even knowing? Shit's fo' real.

    If that was a ford/chevy/dodge, it would have disintegrated on take-off and the driver would be flying thru the air strapped to his seat holding a steering wheel and nothing else.

    The takeoff was really more of a collision.

    Funny thing is this truck will sell for a lot of money.
    Sigh... taco.

    I did, but then I had to take it back five days later when he came home with a Harley. Oye!

    Could you adopt me as son #3? I'll be perfectly willing to accept a slightly older model as the lessor priority child

    Sheesh! Both boys drive newer cars (and bikes) than I do! Son #1 has a '17 Silverado 1500 4x4.

    #1 Rides a '14 Yeti SB95
    #2 Rides a '14 Norco Sight Carbon

    That front-end though. Take off the license plate holder and it looks like a pissed off Sumo Wrestler trying to smile.

    ie: Pissed off Sumo Wrestler with a goatee and a smile. I swear Toyota let Miyazaki draw this version up.

    I'm shocked at how big the Tacomas have gotten. I'll take a pic of it next to the '90 4Runner it's replacing.

    Incidentally, the 4Runner is a 22RE with a 5 speed and now has over 330,000 miles on it and I'm seriously thinking about keeping it. The body is tinny as hell, but it's a tough little truck!

    I've had several Toyota 4x4 trucks over the years. My current one is a loaded 2006 Tacoma Sport TRD quad cab shortbed 4x4. I special ordered in in 2006 and have since put 136K. on the clock. The only thing I've had to do it is batteries, tires and oil changes. Best vehicle I've ever owned. They haven't changed much over the years visually or mechanically. My next vehicle is definitely an updated version of it.

    Right on. Mine is an 06 too and it has 115k miles. 11 year old truck that I just bought and it runs like new.

    I've driven the new ones and this is better (for now). It looks better and the engine and transmission is absolutely dialed. It purrs around 1200 rpm in the city and 2000 rpm on the highway with the high torque engine holding gear for a while.

    I bet you, in relation to all other trucks and SUVs, they get out there on the dirt a lot more.

    If I didn't NEED the towing capacity that my 3/4 ton Chevy provides, I'd get one.

    Keep it! I like the size of the older ones, much more flickable!

    I don't know if I'd ever get a late model Taco/4Runner, they look nothing like the original anymore, kinda over pretentious styling. Give me function over form. I'm still on the lookout for a matching white 2000 4Runner to add to my stable.
