    trd sport with avid off road light bar, avid rock sliders. OEM roof rack, 12' LED light bar, and Sock monkey decals.
    the standard tow weight is 3000 lbs.
    with tow its about 6500

    so just depends on how much water is in it.

    If you are looking at new trucks and going to pull a trailer regularly, I would suggest you get the towing package. You will get Class 4 receiver hitch, full wire harness, oil cooler and trans cooler. I added the Toyota receiver hitch and wiring harness on my truck (did not have tow package) and in the end cost almost as much. I think you will be much better off. Hope this helps.
