Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Review - 2006 Toyota Tacoma

Today on 2006 Toyota Tacoma, we'll be taking a look at the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part number PW1046. Keep in mind that we're using this tire chain with tires sized 24575r16, but it does fit multiple, different-sized tires. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains are perfect for occasional use and are made out of a case-hardened, low-carbon steel. The spring rollers wrap around wire cross cables to give extra protection over your whole tire. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains are SAE Class S rated for vehicles with low wheelwell clearance. These tire chains meet the Department of Transportation requirements in all 50 states, and the manufacturer recommends the use of a rubber tensioner.



Best 2006 Toyota Tacoma Hitch Options

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Toyota Tacoma - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2006 Toyota Tacoma, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame class III trailer hitch receiver, part number 75236. Here's what this hitch is going to look like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, everything is pretty well hidden. You're not going to see much of that cross tube that's under there, so primarily what you're going to see is the receiver tube here along with the safety chain loops. One nice thing about these safety chain loops is that being this rolled steel style that loops out here, it's going to give you plenty of clearance all the way around. Especially if you have bigger safety chain hooks, you shouldn't have any problem getting them through there. With this hitch, it features both a 5/8 standard hitch pin hole there and then the smaller 1/2-inch hitch pin hole. What that 1/2-inch hitch pin hole is going to be used for is only if you're using a J-pin stabilization system to help keep your accessories nice and secure. The face of the receiver tube opening here is almost flush with the bumper.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Toyota Tacoma - Curt

Today on our 2006 Toyota Tacoma, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the CURT class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number 13323. Here's what this hitch is going to look like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, except for the receiver tube and the safety chain links right here, everything is pretty well hidden. You can just see a very little bit of the cross tube and that frame at either end, but other than that, this hitch is pretty well hidden. It's a nice, easy install and it's going to give you a hitch that's going to do really well for you. Here we've got our 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube opening with reinforcement collar around it. We've got our rolled steel safety chain loops right here.



Thule Truck Bed Bike Racks Review - 2006 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2006 Toyota Tacoma we're doing a test fit of the Thule Gate Mate tailgate pad and bike rack. That part number is TH823. Now this is 54" wide. We've got it set here on our tailgate. All we have to do is just drape it over the top of the tailgate. It drapes over and catches there.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2012 Toyota Tacoma we're doing a test fit of the Thule Vertex Hanging Style 4 Bike Rack. That part number is TH9029XT. Now we already have our bike attached. We're first going to show you how we do that. We have 2 cradles in place with 3 straps altogether, 2 on our frame here and one as our anti-sway in the back. We're going to start by pulling down and lifting up to release those.



RockyMounts Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2012 Toyota Tacoma we're doing a test fit of the RockyMounts SplitRail platform-style 2-bike rack. That part number is RKY1140. Now we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you one of the key features. If we come here to the end, we're going to pull on the handle down here, pull it out towards the end of the bike rack. We're able to tilt our rack away from our vehicle with our bikes fully loaded.



Yakima HoldUp Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2012 Toyota Tacoma we're doing a test fit of the Yakima HoldUp platform-style bike rack. That part number is Y02443. Now we already have our bike in place. We're first going to show you one of the key features of this rack. We lift up at the carrier at the back. We're going to pull out on our red t-pin.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2012 Toyota Tacoma, we're doing a test fit of the Kuat NV2.0 Platform Style 2-Bike Rack. That part number is NV22G. We already have our bike secured down. We're first going to go over what are the main features of this rack. We come to the side here. We've got a lever that's just in between our two-bike holders.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2012 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2012 Toyota Tacoma we're doing a test fit of the Curt 20 by 48 Cargo Carrier. That part number is C18110. This is designed to work with both inch and a quarter and 2 inch hitches, and has a weight capacity of 300 pounds. Though it does have a pretty high weight capacity it is very light weight so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. First thing we're going to do is take a few measurements here. Starting off with our ground clearance we're going to have about 21 and a quarter inches, now that is because we have a raised shank in the back which is going to lift our carrier even higher than our hitch. Next we'll take our overall measurement, we're going to have about 27 and a half inches added to our vehicle.





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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Your Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar # BX4325 will work with either of the Blue Ox Auto-Stop systems, part # BX8893 or their # BX8893-3050 which includes the breakaway. These supplemental braking systems install in place of the shank portion of your Aladdin tow bar and are rated for the same 7500-lbs as the tow bar itself. Installation is a matter of removing and re-installing the horizontal bolt and nut that hold the shank to the arm assembly and routing the brake pedal cable from...

  • 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 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • We have two bike racks that will work well with the bed rail system on your 2013 Toyota Tacoma. The RockyMounts DriveShaft SD, # RKY1085, that you referenced will fit and works with standard fork mount bikes as well as 15-mm and 20-mm thru axle bikes. I have attached a video showing how this bike rack attaches to a bed rail system for you to check out.

  • We do not have a plug-n-play trailer wiring harness for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma but we do have 4-pole trailer wiring kits that will work for you. Curt harness # C59236 will connect to the truck's taillight wiring to get it's light signals and to the truck's battery to get it's 12V power for the trailer's lights. The linked article includes helpful tips for installation. This powered type of harness protects your truck's wiring from any shorts, overloads or other faults in your...

  • It does sound like there is a short to the brake controller through the wiring or in the internal circuitry of the brake controller. Since your brake controller shows no red light this indicates a short to the brake line (blue wire). If you are using wiring harness, # 3040-P, make sure that extra white ground wire is attached to a clean bare metal surface. If it is hardwired to the truck, the ground needs to be connected to the negative battery terminal. Sever the blue...
