    Well, will it? Yes, I know it will. But will my ass pucker the entire time or will I have all my hair left afterwards?

    So I'm in the market for a truck, love gen II taco's so I'm looking for a TRD crew short bed, want the toy tech, 33's etc. I have it all picked out in my head. Perfect truck for me, cept for one thing. Once in awhile I like to flat tow my old CJ7 rock crawler up the hill to the Rubicon. Not very often, maybe 5 times a year. I could go Tundra, Duramax or whatever... but 99% of the time I'd be MUCH happier in my little Taco.

    My Jeep weighs 4000# loaded. It has a braking system, so I can put a controller in the Taco. That being said, if its got the tow package, upgrade the tranny cooler and all that, will it handle flat towing my Jeep? How well or not well? Appreciate all input! Thanks.

    You were flat towing? No trailer right? appreciate the input. There's a ton of posts on towing trailers etc, I'm mainly looking for any information on flat towing.
