MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma, we're going to be test fitting the Max Tow 30 x 50 wheelchair carrier with a 48" long ramp. Part number MT70106. We already have it installed on our vehicle and right now it's in the position you would have it if either your wheelchair or your scooter we're already installed upon the rack. To get the scooter off you simply lower the ramp and to do that there's going to be pins and clips on either side here. We'll first remove the clips, then remove the pins, lower down the brackets like so, then lower the ramp. Now you're able to get our wheelchair-scooter off or put it back into place. With it in this position I want to go ahead and give you a quick measurement about how far it sticks out from the side of the truck. That's about 32" or so from the edge of the truck here.



Thule Roof Rack Review - 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma, we're doing a test fit of the Thule AeroBlade crossbars. The part number for our crossbars is THARB53. For our rapid traverse foot pack, we're using TH480R. For our fit kit for our Tacoma, we're using THKIT1827. Now we already have our front bar on and in place here. You'll see we have an aerodynamic shape, which is going to help reduce wind noise and drag.



Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma we'll be taking a look at the Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. The part number for our crossbars today is RRBA137B-2, for our fit kit it's going to be DK174, and for our foot pack we're using RRRLKVA. Now we already have our front crossbar installed. You'll see we have a nice aerodynamic shape to our crossbar, it's going to help reduce wind noise and drag. There are also inserts that come with your crossbars that are measuring sticks that will help you if you don't have any, a flat tape measure that you'll see us using later. You can insert it into the bottom there, that's also going to help reduce wind noise and drag. You'll notice that we have locks that come with our crossbar and our foot pack, it's going to help prevent theft and tampering. We've got that front bar on we're going to show you how to put the last foot pack together and then how we load our back crossbar onto our vehicle, because it is the same way it's just a few different measurements. We're going to start off by taking our foot pack here.



MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma, we're going to be test fitting the MaxxTow 30X50 Wheelchair Carrier with 60 inch long ramp, part number MT70260. This cargo carrier has a carrying capacity of 500 pounds, has this nice mesh floor, which makes it easy to clean, has two reflectors on the outside to make it easy to see, and it also has these points all the way around the cargo carrier and those can serve as tie-downs for either your racket straps or your bungee cords, whatever you need to tie down your wheelchair. Right now, we have it in a position you would have it if the wheelchair or scooter we're in place. Now, to get it off or to put it back on, you simply fold it out and we'll show you how to do that next. We'll start by pulling these pins on either sides of the ramps here and that makes it so this can actually fold out like so. Then we'll go to the inside here, remove the pins and clips, and the supports. We'll pull them up and reinsert the pins along the sides like so, which sometimes can take a little bit of time to line them up.

Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first and most important feature about this bike rack is the fact that this can swing away from the vehicle, so you gain full access to your tailgate. To do that, we'll start in the back here with this knob, loosen it up like so. It's not going to come all the way off, but you know when it's loosened up. Come back to the front, there's this gray knob here right by the mast.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first and most prominent feature of this rack is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, we come to this switch up at the front, we'll pull it towards us holding onto the bike rack and letting it come down. Unfortunately, we can't open the tailgate all the way with this as it's going to come in contact with the bike or the bike rack.

Let's go and take a closer look and show out some of the features. The first and most important feature of this is the fact that it can tilt away from your vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that we have this grey handle here that we'll pull towards us to let it lower, which is a little more convenient as opposed to other racks where you have the handles up towards the front here and they're just a little more awkward to get it to tilt away. Let's go ahead and do that and we'll pull forward, towards us then let it come down.

This base plate is designed to be used with all the Roadmaster tow bars, quick connects and standard tow bar. When you take out the pin, it's going to be virtually undetectable from the front of the vehicle, as you remove your cables, or you can just tuck them up inside and zip tie them out of the way. First up on our Toyota, it's going to be to remove the factory tow hook in this loop here and the same thing on the driver's side. We'll use a 17 mm socket and let's remove those.

Toyota Tacoma Questions

  • It is not difficult to determine if your Tacoma has the tow package wiring in place. If your Tacoma has the OEM 7-way trailer connector installed, the vehicle is indeed prewired for a brake controller. The # 3040-P wiring harness would plug into the connector located near the emergency brake pedal as shown in the photo I edited for you. Make sure the white ground wire with the ring terminal is grounded to bare metal under the dash. If you do NOT have the OEM 7-way, the...

  • I can help you out, no problem. What you are going to want to look at is the towing capacities of the truck. You need to know the gross combined weight rating. This is the most the vehicle, including cargo and occupants, plus the trailer can weigh. This information is usually in the owners manual or on a sticker in the door jamb. Looking at an online copy of the owners manual the 4 liter V6 model of the 2013 Toyota Tacoma with 4-wheel drive could have one of several capacities...

  • You have a short circuit somewhere that is causing the fuse to blow. To determine where the short is start by disconnecting the trailer from the tow vehicle. Replace the fuse and then use a circuit tester such as # 3808 to test the vehicle side trailer connector while someone sits in the vehicle and turns on the running lights. If it shows power and the fuse does not blow then the issue is on the trailer. If it does blow the fuse then the issue is on the vehicle. Likely...

  • You will need several items to add electric brakes to your Carry-On Utility trailer. Starting with the trailer you will need a hub and drum that matches the bearings and seal on your trailer spindle and your wheel bolt pattern. The only way to be sure is to check the bearing part numbers and seal part number, but with a 3,500 lbs Dexter axle that has brake mounting flanges you will most likely have the # L44649 Outer and # L68149 inner bearings and # 58846 seal. If these are the...

  • It sounds like you have a factory 7-Way connector on your 2012 Toyota Tacoma and that you also have the dealer supplied electric brake controller wiring harness for wiring an electric brake controller in the cab of your vehicle. Since your boat trailer is equipped with surge brakes, you will not need to install an electric brake controller in the cab of your Tacoma. The first thing you should do is check the center pole, see photo, in the 7-Way connector on your vehicle...

  • Since your 2013 Toyota Tacoma has a factory tow package, including a 7-way connector at the back bumper, it will have a brake controller connector. While it is usually visible above the emergency brake pedal, it may sometimes be taped or zip-tied to other wiring. You can try checking further up under the dash panel. If not there, the connector may be tucked in behind the left hand kick panel. Please refer to the attached photo. The Tekonsha installation instructions for...

  • The # 3040-P is indeed the correct brake control wiring adapter for your 2015 Tacoma. Due to the presence of the knee airbag, the preferred location to the right of the steering column might not be feasible. If there's not a suitable location to the right of the steering column where the controller could be mounted so that it's parallel to the direction of travel, you'll need to consider an alternate spot. If you watch one of the videos I've linked you to, you can see the controller...

  • The races of the part # KH84545S are installed but the bearings and seal are sold separately. It calls for a # L68149 and # L44649 and then for a seal part # RG06-050 which all match what you say you need.

  • Pop and Lock does have the manual locking tailgate handle, # PAL5500, that will work with your 2015 Toyota Tacoma with backup camera. You can turn it into a power locking handle by adding conversion kit # PAL8525.

  • The radial tires at size 175/80-13, are going to be 7 inches wide; too wide to be able to fit without incident on your trailer, so you will need to go with a bias ply tire. The wheels that we carry, unless otherwise noted, have a zero offset. This means that the extra width will be split evenly on each side of the tire. However, there will be very little room if you just have 1-3/4 inches of clearance. Make sure you double and triple check the measurements before ordering. As...

  • The Hydrastar Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator, # HS381-8067, for disc brakes, would be an excellent choice for your boat trailer with Kodiak disc brakes in a saltwater marine environment. The unit is sealed very well with marine grade gaskets, stainless steel hardware, and an anodized aluminum housing, but it should not be submerged in water. You will want to mount the unit as far forward on the tongue of the trailer as possible to keep the unit from being submerged. This...

  • At this time none of the manufacturers that we carry have any towing mirror fits for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma. If you need some towing mirrors right away I recommend taking a look at our universal towing mirrors linked to the right. The most popular option is # KS3891. It clips on to a factory mirror that has a lip or gap between the glass and mirror housing. I have linked a video showing an installation for you. Another option, and the most stable, is a door mounted mirror...

  • The towing capacity of your 1996 Toyota Tacoma will depend on if your truck has a V6 or a 4 cylinder and if it is a 4X4 or a 4X2. I have listed the towing capacities of the different options for the Toyota Tacoma below. 4X4 V6 - 8,300 lbs 4X4 4 Cyl. - 7,400 lbs 4X2 V6 - 8,300 lbs 4X2 4 Cyl. - 3,500 lbs You can verify the towing capacity of your truck by checking your owners manual or contacting a local Toyota dealer with your vehicle identification number. Toyota also...

  • The hub/rotors included in the # T4843700 are Dacromet coated. Dacromet has a 400-600 hour salt spray rating, which means it can withstand 400-600 hours of exposure before signs of corrosion begin to appear. Although stainless offers better corrosion resistance, the Titan kit would last you for awhile, especially if you do a good job of hosing the trailer off after exposure to salt water. The Titan # T4843700 is compatible with 3500 lb axles, and uses a L68149 inner and L44649...

  • The TracRac ladder rack # TA37004 will fit your 2013 Toyota Tacoma with the in-bed track system you have and the composite bed. The rack comes with special clamps that will fit in the channels of the Toyota track system. I have included a picture showing what the clamps look like. I have also included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • The installation of the Tekonsha P2 Brake Controller # 90885 and Wiring Harness,# 3040-P, could not be more simple on your 2011 Toyota Tacoma with tow package. The truck will have a wiring harness up under the dash, to the right of the steering column (the plug could also be left of the steering column above the emergency brake pedal). All you have to do is plug in the brake controller wiring harness to it, ground the additional white ground wire to a bare metal surface or existing...

  • The controller is only putting out voltage when the manual switch is applied on the brake controller, but not when the vehicle brakes are applied, is that correct? The most likely problem is that the controller is not getting the input that the vehicle brakes are being applied. When the trailer is hitched up with the transmission in park, use a circuit tester like part # 3808 on the red wire exiting the rear of the controller. You should show voltage on the wire when the trucks...

Firestone does show that their Ride-Rite Rear Air Helper Spring, part # F2407, fits both 2WD PreRunner as well as 4WD versions up through model year 2013.

Please note that this part does not include a compressor/gauge, available as part # F2158 (single gauge and function)...

  • It sounds like your 2014 Toyota Tacoma did not come with a factory tow package. What can happen sometimes is that on models that did not come with the factory tow package not all of the wiring or contacts will be present. You would either need to by all of the tow package parts or you would need to return the harness and install an aftermarket one designed for models without the factory tow package. If you want to add a 7-Way to the truck you would start by installing a 4-Way...

  • I spoke with my contact at Firestone about your 2013 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner. If you have 2 wheel drive the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs , part # F2407, will work for you along with a couple of other items. I have attached a link to an installation video for this system you can check out. You will need the Firestone Axle Bracket Extension Kit, part # F2506. This is needed for vehicles with a 2 inch lift in place. They also told me that you may need the Firestone...
