My 2012 with the 4 pack has a tone of problems.
I carried the TW scale and trailer with one ATV plus I think two bags of corn in the back of the truck.... The TW was 275-300 pending how I moved the ATV.
The truck was sitting 1" or so off the bump stops.
He jumped on the tounge of the trailer it would hit.
Said he would look into it. After 2 week I called and they told me there was no help they could give me, and if I wanted to haul heavy loads I needed to get a full size truck as I was overloaded.
Nothing good came out of it, so I called Toyota, SAME, Same, nothing, have a good day. We think you should trade or look at a tundra if you need to haul large loads.
Now this it a 350 rancher 4x4 that weighs maybe 400 lb and the trailer is in the 1000-1500 range at most.
Bunch of BS that the truck is overloaded with that load and 300 lb TW.
No reason for it.
It beat the crap out of my back every time I towed.
I ended up getting a set of Take off TRD shocks and AIR bags. big difference.
The wife has a 2011 and uses it as a DD, no haul or tow much....
THey pissed me off so bad I'm going to fight to get the 3 pack replaced with 4 pack. Just to cost them money and time.
It sucks that when you order a TRUCK and get a tow package from Toyota you get the same springs as a non tow package.
Most other brand trucks offer tow packages and give you heavy springs.
