2001 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab Limited V8 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
Review
Toyota for whatever reason installed rear drum brakes on this truck and they don't work! I have already replaced the front brakes once and they are going to need replaced again soon and the rear brakes are like new. Why? I use this truck off road and get in mud and water, the self adjusters for the brakes rust and don't work where as if it had rear disk brakes they would work fine. The Tundra and all off-road trucks and suv's should have a switch to disengage the anti-lock brakes for off road use. If you try to stop in mud at slow speeds while going down grade the anti-locks keep grabbing and letting go but will not grab long enough to dig into the mud to stop you.
Suggested Improvements
Install rear disk brakes and install a switch to disengage the anti-lock brakes or make them that they don't work under 10mph.
