After acquiring the vehicle you apply for and receive an SF97 which is a release title from the government. while you're waiting for that to arrive,(30 days) have the state give you a provisional registration

The state that you would buy it in or where you live? From the looks of what's out there now, most m1101 are in GA or LA.

The state you live in. When you go get it, the state where you purchased it might be able to get you a temporary registration to be able to get it home

Hauled 4,687lbs by the scale up to Alaska from Seattle. Total weight on Canadian scales, truck and trailer combined was 4500kg.

V6/manual transmission/OME881/Dakars/Nitrocharger Sports/Firestone Ride-Rite airbags(!!!). No problems at all. Even on the nasty stretches of road.

This is the 9th time in 5 years traveling the road. Third time hauling a trailer. Mileage dropped from the usual 22-23mpg to 12.5mpg.

5K.
1st Gens are either 3,500lbs (4cyl) or 5,000lbs (6cyl). But my suspension upgrades make all the difference. Manual transmission is a plus too.

Really curious what everyone's impression is on towing with the 6-speed. I have a WRX STI (2004) which is about 3,300 lbs that I want to tow eventually and a tube buggy (that's actually mostly a cherokee) that I'd like to tow also. I have no clue how heavy that pig is but it doesn't feel light. How does the 6-speed feel when towing on moderate grades?

Hey Snowmanwithahat, I have a 2008 trd sport 6 speed. I have no problems towing with it. I've towed a bobcat on a trailer weighting around 5000#, and the truck did great. plenty of power going uphill and the trailer brakes helped going down. I hope this hepls you.


I'm looking at purchasing a new tacoma, and I'm curious about the automatic and towing. I've only ever owned manuels, so any input would be great. Snowmanwithahat sorry for throwing in a question on your post.

Snowmanwithahat, basically, what PoolGuy said. I tow a 19 foot camper that weighs about 3,200 pounds dry. Add all the gear, people, creatures and I'm probably pretty close to 4,000 lbs. I pull it with an '07 Access Cab 6 speed and don't really have any problems. I've never pulled it on the interstate (only highways) and find myself not really ever using 6th gear. Most of the time I'm cruising 45-50 in fifth and it's no problem.

I tow a travel trailer that's about 3900 lbs dry probably gets up to around 5k all loaded. I like the 6 speed, does very well, just have to remember to shift down a little early before you lose momentum. Pretty much never use 6th, 3 rd and 4th are go to gears, 5th for flat straight fast stuff. Can maintain 55 up some decent grades in 3rd pretty easy.

Tow the Boat down at the cabin



Also use her as shuttle pig (not sure if this counts as towing) when mountain biking. Set up dual bike racks and load the tailgate too! This day we had had 12 Bikes and People loaded up in her each run!





Also often haul a Uhaul when I travel from home to School and back each year

Towing this TT

TT is 4700 lb dry, loaded probably around 5300 lb. Equilizer 4-point sway control WD hitch and Tekonsha Primius IQ brake controller.

Pretty happy with how it tows so far. Gas mileage is poor, but that was expected. Super impressed and happy with my Tacoma!

James,

Nice setup. Did you use Daystar cradles with your Firestone Ride-Rite airbags?

Buggy and trailer 4800# I'm not going to lie, the truck wasn't all too happy doing it. It worked for a few years though. The weight distribution hitch helped quite a bit.
