    He's okay if he has the towing package, otherwise his capacity is only 5000.

    I have a SR5 and i would Highly advise Not doing that The max Load capasity for them is 2500lbs my f-150 max is 5200 you are asking to drop the drive trail on the highway u could do it but u just as well chain it to a tree and expect to pull it down. just not a good idea at all in my opinion.

    5000lbs without tow package and 6500lbs with. The most important difference is the tranny cooler.

    With towing package is 6500lbs, which is with an oil and tranny cooler.


    see below direct from Toyota
    edit: oops its kinda hard to read, but check out the specs at Toyota.com for yourself.

    Max towing capacity for any 2nd gen V6 without towing package is 3500lbs.
    Max towing capacity for any 2nd gen 4cyl is 3500lbs.
    Max towing capacity for any 2nd gen V6 with towing package is 6500lbs.
    Towing package includes a class 3 hitch, tranny cooler, oil cooler and a bigger alternator.

    In Canada, the max towing capicity for all V6 is 5000lbs and 6500lbs if you have the TRD version. The main difference between them is the addition of the transmission cooler. I'm not sure how much the towing capicity would increase with the addition of a cooler on an SR5.

    Doesn't every vehicle have the towing capicity listed on a sticker on the edge of the door??

    Cheers.

    Why is the capacity higher in Canada for a V6 without tranny cooler than it is here? It is the same truck/engine?? :confused:


    Edit: I didn't notice the OP is in Canada...here is the Canada specs from Toyota.
