    In need of a new truck and Looking at the 3rd gen tacos.
    I want to be able to haul a 4wheeer~1000lbs and a pop up camper about 1000#s too. My plan would be to get a diamond back load bearing bed cover and airbags for the rear.
    Technically I’m within the limits of the truck but how will it handle the bed weight and tongue weight Combined? Has anyone done a similar set up?
    Wanting to do some long hauls with it so I don’t want it to struggle and have trans problems down the road

    Bed + Tongue + You + Any other cargo = less than payload max. Otherwise you should be fine.
    Might want to make sure your brakes are up to snuff.

    1000lb 4 wheeler in the bed? If so, you’re probably above cargo with passengers and tongue weight. 1175 is the limit I think.

    If 4 wheeler on trailer, you’re good.

    Plus that heavy ass bed cover too.
    I think you'll be pushing the limits with people, gear, fuel, coolers, etc.

    I did the math on my planned travel trailer purchase. I ended up with about 150lbs of spare cargo capacity, and about 1300lbs of towing capacity left.

    Cargo capacity runs out fast.

    1000 lb 4wheeler? Are you sure? I have a sport quad at 400 lbs. I googled a big Yamaha Grizzly 700 and it comes in at 648 lbs wet.

    I would skip the airbags and just get a set of leaf packs that can handle the weight, I run my truck unloaded most of the time and there is no issues with it, and the ride isn’t bad. Just my .02
