My local Toyota dealer put it in writting that the only thing not covered under my warranty was anything that the disconnected was attached to. That being the rear end. I had a transmission seal go out under warranty....I disconnected the driveshaft disconnect in the parking lot and the warranty work was completed at no charge. Re-connected the disconnect when I got home.
As a tip..spray paint a spot on both sides of the U bolts including the bolts and rear end housing.. If the disconnect ever has to be removed or slips, it is easy to line up the paint spots and tighten everything back down. No re-adjusting or re-setting, makes the job a 5 minute reconnect.
I have been towing the Tacoma for 4 years. I have had problems with the disconnect, but it turned out to be a bad yoke bearing since new. Once I replaced that it is working better than new now. The new company is much BETTER to deal with than the old Remco company was.
