I just wanted to point something out - on the web and in person i've been told my truck 2002 Tacoma 4x4 trd double cab has a towing rating for 5,000.
Well i just hooked up all new electrical and got a drop hitch etc.. there's a sticker on the hitch that specifically says....
2001 Tacoma and below = 5,000 tow rating and 500 tongue rating
2002 Tacoma and above = 6,000 tow rating and 600 tongue rating
Someone check their 1st gen and see if theirs says the same.
I feel lucky like i just gained 1,000 in towing capacity = more fat chicks!
