    NO, You are rated at 1350 pounds. But, with the rear springs on Tacomas, you would be lucky to haul 500 pounds without serious problems. Do not try to haul 2000 pounds of anything.

    Did they stop putting manuals in the truck's glovebox when they sell them ?

    Last month I had 10 railroad ties in my bed. They each weigh 200lbs and drove 30 miles. To be honest I was more worried about the tailgate than my 5100's. The toytec 2" leaf helped too. Wasn't close to bottoming out either.

    No, not a ton. Capacity in the area of 1000 lbs.

    Here's about 1200 lbs in my taco. She was squatting, that's for sure.

    Not only is a ton too heavy for your bed, but you might have a tough time stopping too. Like other have said, rent a trailer and haul the soil that way. Towing 2000 lbs with a Tacoma is fairly easy.

    It impacts the suspension carrying that extra weight around.

    I agree not for these trucks , ironically some of the older pre Tacoma trucks could handle 2000 lbs, but not the newer bigger trucks!!
