Great feedback, Phoenix. This is very helpful.
I've been posting on the Tacoma World forum to cross reference everything on both ends. The TRD package comes with a better suspension and more upgrades I'm tracking down, so yes, great point to check on all this. I just recently replaced the battery to a HD.
The Tacoma is my truck and the Sequoia is my mother's vehicle. She has a CR-V she uses as a daily driver, so using the Sequioa would not be a problem since it's just in storage waiting for family trips.
I would rather use my daily driver (Tacoma) and solely rely on my own resources, plus I would have to swap trucks out after I tow. I live in Seattle and go to school there and my family lives in Lake Chelan. It's 3.5 hours and 2 mountain passes away, so it would be practical to keep my vehicle and not make the trip twice to swap trucks.
In the summer I go back to Chelan, so this would be a twice a year haul. Just nice to know I could just pick up and leave with my Tacoma.
A little confusing.
