    I just pulled my boat, 2300#,for the first time without any problems. 2012 Access 4 cyl. auto 5 lug. No trailer sway. I was worried it may not have enough weight in the ass, traction, to pull the boat out of the water , but it pulled it out no problem.

    I just towed my 18' boat today for the first time, and it did great!!! It weights around 3,500 pounds so it's really pushing the towing capacity. But it did really good. I drove it on a hilly highway and it maintained 55 very easily. And pulled it out of a very very steep and slippery ramp with minimal wheel spin, power was not an issue just traction.

    I was worried about it not being being able to make it up that ramp, but it did it!! :D

    FWIW I back in the day I towed a 16' Chriscraft every week from Pacifica, Ca to Princeton, Ca. with this

    all I needed was the hitch and a set of air shocks. Granted it had a 305v8 but it was only 160 hp. I am just trying to show that a Tacoma should handle that boat easily-4 banger or not.
