I don't understand what you are trying to say now. According to the
ordering guide, if you get the 4.2L V6 with an automatic transmission,
you get an auxiliary transmission cooler (apparently, you normally
don't get an auxiliary transmission cooler at all with the V-6). If
you get the 4.6L or 5.4L V-8s you get an UPGRADED radiator and an
UPGRADED auxiliary transmission cooler. So with either V-8 and the
trailer towing package, you get an upgraded radiator and an upgraded
auxiliary transmission cooler (one of the V-8s is required to get the
upgraded components). For the V-6 with the trailer towing package you
get an auxiliary transmission cooler (you can't upgrade something that
wasn't included in the first place). Go look at the complete ordering
guide and things should be clear even to you. And I have already
pointed you to an actual truck on a dealer's lot that included the
trailer tow package and a V-6 engine. Wasn't that enough for you? Are
you so dense that you can't recognize that you have the facts all

You really should do "Ed White" Toyota fan (111 hits), or "Ed White
Toyota Fan" (0 hits). The quote marks are important.

Perhaps not, perhaps yes. But consider the power plant, a 358 cid cam in
block 2 valves per cylinder , push rods, and a single 4 barrel carb pushing
a 3400 pound car upwards of 220 mph, and toyota cant get enough horsepower
out of their engine.
And a lot of what goes on on the track does find its way into cars..
