I'm picking up a used 07 DC TRD Off-Road with 3600 miles this Saturday. Is there anyone here that can tell if the leaf spring & tailgate TSB's have been performed by checking the VIN? Maybe someone here works at a dealership?

The leaf spring TSB can be checked visually by you, just look behind a rear wheel and count the leafs.
Non TSB = 3 leafs
TSB = 4 leafs.
Im not sure how to check for the tailgate TSB.

If any TSB's were done under warranty, then any dealer should be able to find that out by the VIN.

I think everyone is missing the bigger picture. How did you find an 07 with only 3600 miles? Did you just leave a 0 off that number?

lol, nope, it's actually 3600 miles on it. An elderly couple owned it and then something happened to one of them forcing them to sale it. The dealership I'm buying it from bought it at auction. According to it's carfax, they owned 1 year & 2 months, so I guess they didn't drive it much. My wife's grandparents are the same way. They have a Chevy truck they never drive-they're 90 years old and don't want too drive, so family takes them everywhere in their vehicle instead of driving the Chevy truck. Maybe that was the situation for the people that owned this Tacoma?

If thats the case I'd bet none of the TSB's are done.
