I recently went on a 1,400 mile trip the last few days to the mountains in TN. I was towing my #6000 trailer/truck the entire time. Now where I am from it is flat land and easy peasy towing due to no hills. Well when I got first hand experience towing in the mountains I will say it sucked. The taco was horrible towing in the mountains. It just putted along and did it's thing (pretty much expected it being it's towing heavy)
But my main concern and safety issue I am worried about is stopping. I am almost at the point of selling the tacoma to buy a diesel. I tow at least #5000 miles a year and the tacoma is taking a beating.
The trailer does have trailer brakes and I have toyed with them to where I figured out they are perfect on the brake controller. My main question is, is there upgraded brakes for the tacomas for towing? Larger rotors/pads/calipers and stuff to help reduce the wear on the stock brakes pretty much?
