Drove it as a loaner while my RW was in the shop today. And holy crap I realized how quick our trucks actually are when I jumped back in it this afternoon. And the suspension finally doesn't squeak anymore!!!!!!

Yeah it was a fully loaded model. Super nice. But I appreciated my torque monster when I got back in my own truck. The squeak was killing me for about a month!

My bad. I had some bilstein 5100s installed by a Firestone my buddy ran. I took it to the dealer after about 3 weeks of squeaking and they found that the long bolt that comes out of the top of the shock and connects to the strut housing had a cross threaded nut on it so it wasn't completely tight and daily driving wore out the rubber bushing until it finally started squeaking. It was quiet for about 7,000 miles or so, so I didn't think anything of it. I was lucky that the dealer covered it under my warranty. They replaced the bolt and nut, washer and bushing for both sides just to be safe. I'm pretty happy with their service. Any other dealer would probably have charged me no less than 300 for the fix.

For sure. The extra weight if the tundra keeps it planted in its lane a little better though. That was my only complaint about it dancing around in its lane a bit.

I'm in a DoubleCab loaner right now while mine is in the shop getting leather installed. Man, it feels a hell of a lot more loose in the rear end than the CrewMax.

Yeah it really does. My tundra always feels planted to the ground but that Tacoma felt like it was ready to spring away at a moments notice

Wifes 2012 DC V6 TRD Offroad Tacoma is alot more stable in the curves than my same TRD Offroad Tundra. It handles much better actually. It runs good for a V6 truck... Not too much slower than a Tundra. Gets about 4-5 more MPG on average too.

Lifted Tacos are sweet! Local dealership always has them available with lift/tires and they look great!

Would be even better if they'd stuff a V8 in them or even better would be a diesel.

They are nice. My dad has one. I do like the extra power of my truck though. I would have bought a Tacoma had the tundra I want not been only a grand more. Tacomas are pricey.

You should think about getting the TRD rear sway bar. Put it on a few weeks ago and the rear of my Tundra tightened up....
