    Just wondering about playload capacity in regaurds to towing? I got an SR5 double cab 4x4 with an add a leaf. I want to get a travel trailer but I want to know how much wieght I can tow comfortabley without baggin on my truck first. The trailer I want is around 5700 pound fully loaded. Too heavy for my truck I think.

    Oh yes and of course I would install a hidden hitch, not towing on the bumper!

    You should be able to handle 5,700 easily. My '01 3.4 L can handle 5,000. You've got to be the 4.0 L, right?

    edit - just make sure you have the right equipment

    this means his truck didnt come with a hitch witch means no tow package.
