2001 Toyota Tundra 4dr Access Cab Limited V8 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


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.

Worst Features

Install rear disk brakes and install a switch to disengage the anti-lock brakes or make them that they don't work under 10mph.
