  1. Michelin LTX A/T2 tire noise Q

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Might be the front differential needle bearing. My 06 hummed and thought it was the tire but was the needle bearing. Jack front drivers wheel up and spin it; you'll feel it if it's the bearing. Replaced mine with ECGS bushing and smooth as silk.
  2. Illuminated 4x4 switch

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Here's where the bearing goes; you have to keep it pressed in as you install this part. There should be a spring also in this part that makes the switch index. The photo is 2 tacomas; I just added the red arrow. Hope this helps.
  3. Help! Anyone know the specs for the centering pin/bolt for the rear leafs?

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    The pins I used were 10mm Grade 8 .
  4. 5100's question???

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Yes, they are made to work with the stock springs / coils.
  5. Add-on Bed Outlet to non-trd

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Since bak replaced my gen.1 no water has got in the back. I did put some extra weatherstripping across the front bed rail when installing the cover. The gen.2 is a completely different tonneau. I believe it will last a while. I have a wired remote ran inside the cab and mounted in the cubby hole...
  6. Add-on Bed Outlet to non-trd

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Took me a few days before I got some extra time. Here's a few pics of what I did for the bed outlet when going to a larger inverter. First of all here's a pic of the larger inverter which I installed using the front bed rail. Here's a pic of the outlet installed. I cut a 1/4" ss plate the...

  8. Add-on Bed Outlet to non-trd

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I would look more toward a marine type recepticle for the back. The wires to the factory outlet will never handle much more than the 400 watt factory inverter and there is no way to install larger wires to it. I installed a larger inverter and had to replace the factory outlet. I made a...
  9. Pro Comp Drive Shaft?!

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    The add says a cv "Front" drive shaft. Tom wood's is for the rear. Unless I misread it.
  10. Truck Bed cover - Bakflip owners

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I wouldn't cap them; these drain any water that might get in the track. I put some 90 degree fittings in the hose and drilled a hole in the cubby hole pieces on each side to run the tubing out.
  11. rear lights...

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Mine's been in since Nov. 05 and I've not had a problem. They are never on very long though. Might pm Pb also , but mine have been fine.
  12. rear lights...

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I replaced my backup light bulbs with 886 fog light bulbs works pretty good. Here's a write up of PB's. http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/t93076.html
  13. Truck Bed cover - Bakflip owners

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I got a bakflip (1st generation) after piercedtiger got his. Had it for over 1 1/2 years or more and I loved the way it worked, but started having all the issues mentioned by some of the others: weatherstrips coming unglued, panels bowing, lock cable covers coming off, etc. I really wasn't too...
  14. Anyone cut their mudflaps down to shorten them?

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I cut mine off about 1 1/2 years ago and haven't had any chips as a result on the side of the truck. I do have the tube steps though which may have caught a few rocks.
  15. Min spacer size for rear?

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    The blocks can be made real easy whether 1/2" or 3/4". All you need is some plate that thickness and make it the width of your springs and the length of the spring perches on your axle; drill a 10 mm hole thru the center and use a longer centering pin. You might have to have longer u-bolts...
