    Bought tiles for the living room and used the truck to get them. Each case has 6 tiles and each weighing roughly 20lbs +/- 4lbs (felt like it.)

    3" toytec lift with AALs 285/70/17 bfg km2 :)

    lol this truck hardly carries any load. the most it'll see is 4 people in the bed for the beach. I'm just pretty surprised how it handled. Power and breaking was reasonable, no struggling, and was still smooth. I'm just glad the tacoma handled this load like a champ!

    haha yeaaa that saying came out kinda wrong lol. Yup just myself and a friend had to unload the entire bed and bring them all into the house one by one. Plus there was still a small bale in my friends truck and all the bags of mixture. It took forever and the humid weather wasnt helping.

    These truck are very capable haulers, proof in photos!! No clue what the two trucks weighed but you really need trailer brakes to haul that weight.

    Hauling a trailer and hauling a pallet of tiles in the bed are two different things. I'm betting that pallet exceeds the weight capacity of the truck.
