They really didn't...the cab's exterior was unchanged. Nose lift and bed overhaul really....and pretty much everything mechanically and interior is different. I guess cut costs where ya can.

I had to go look up some older styles...I dunno, I like the new Front end, and the sharper bed sides on the new ones.

Scoob's 2/3 shot looks fantastic, but I think the Chrome helps also.

Reline's All black looks a tad bit lost, but not bad, just a little different, smaller maybe? Black is a slimming color...

I usually get around 19 combined. I actually get my best MPGs in my regular city commute at 45 with stop lights.

payload and towing...it's a mid size. 1175/6400

This is exactly what I get with my 2011 Tacoma.

I'm not impressed with the gas mileage as that was was the main reason for a mid size truck for me. The best I've ever seen was 22.1 but it's normally in the 19's sometimes low 20's in the summer.

It's worse for highway only trips as I usually see 18 or so for all highway trip.

I think he's suggesting that was the only part of your statement that he agreed with.

You're about the only person that's outwardly said they didn't like the looks of this truck. I've personally found it to be the best looking truck in the segment right now, IMO. Looks more rugged than most, without being overly tacky.

I've never been a truck guy, so I've never thought to complement another's truck...but it seems like most places I go I get stopped by someone who's either a Tacoma guy that wants to ask questions about the truck, or someone that just feels like complementing it. It's gotten more attention than my attention whore seeking STI's which is weird.

Without sounding like cseaman, coming into someone's thread and talking shit on their car...

I think that OP's car would get tied together with higher offset wheels. The tire size is good, the wheel design looks good, the truck itself looks good. If the wheels were to poke out a bit more more, it would make it look a lot more aggressive and rather than looking good, as I said above, it would look great. And that's also why I think it looks smaller/slimmer to you.

Like this?

FN wheels makes the FX, which is a replica TRD design, but an inch wider width, and better offset.

Truck looks great. Saw this on the news and thought I'd share as Scooby mentioned something about the issue.

Truck looks mean, nice.

sorry about your chally being a total turd. but honestly it soudns liek your dealers techs didn't know WTF they where doing, or they gave the work to some low level 1 or level 2 tech because the lvl3 guys are usually busy with high hour stuff.

honestly an easy start for them woudl have been a key off amp check at the battery to make sure the modules where shutting off.

if the remote start was a factory "accessory" installed post manufacture, it was probably the cause of the problems.. don't know how many i have ripped out over the years due to failure.

Yup pretty much all non off road models are included. The e-locker diff like mine aren't included...must be assembled somewhere else.

Makes you wonder if that diff is made in the texas plants vs the mexico plants. Could also be made in japan alongside the 4runner...

Not sure...my truck was made in the mexico plant and has none of the problems associated with the quality control that the texas trucks are seeing. In this case, it seems Mexico is producing better quality than Texas.

Sounds to me like a faulty gasket (or insufficient liquid gasket) rather than a QA issue from assembly to me.

Are they the same axle/diff, but one has a locker? Or are the different axles?

After driving a car made in America for the last week, I could believe Mexican quality being better.

The 12mm carrier bolts are loose from the factory...the fix is to tighten them to 18 ft lbs.

And they are different...the off road ones are 8.75's with the e-locker. They have 12 bolts, the others have 10.

looks like mine is weeping oil.





No risk of damage at this point but it will need to get fixed.
