    Yeah it has the towing package. We have no shortage of trailers, my FIL owns a trucking company. So we have bumper pulls, goosenecks, etc. the one I really want to use is a 16 foot bumper pull flat bed with dove tail end. Tandem axle.

    Nice new to you truck. Looks like a better traiiler puller than wood hauler, but robably supper nice inside.

    I replaced the rusted out cover on my 00 F250 with this.

    Yeah, that is how it goes with almost everything. The first scratch on my truck was a kitchen counter top being dropped on the edge of the bed from the second story sliding glass door. We were actually trying to lower it down to the bed from the deck, but as my dad raised it over the railing the counter split in half. I jumped out of the bed and it hit the rear corner just above the taillight. I know where every dent and scratch on my truck came from and there is a good story for each one. Don't like to get them, but they add character. Now, when you have too many to remember where they came from, that is one heck of an old truck that has paid for itself.

    Don't go throwing any firewood in the bed from a distance.

    Nice truck Mudbug. Like the color. I think the Tacoma is the best looking smaller truck on the market. I like the looks of the long bed vs the short. A little more room in there as well. I am thinking of coming up with some sort of bed extender for my CrewMax. I need to look around and see if someone makes them for it.

    That's a nice looking truck. I bought an older more used truck and still feel bad about the dents I've put in it from firewood. You'll just have to be a little more careful, that's all.

    I think they make Timbrens for those things nowadays. I highly recommend them as a reasonably priced way to make sure your truck rides the way you want it to when it's loaded/towing (but not beyond) the factory max specifications.

    What can that Tacoma two weight wise? Seems like a huge trailer there for a Tacoma, but I could be wrong. Don't know very much about Toyota products.
