    I would get a bigger truck. Look for something used. It doesn't have to be the nicest truck. Just needs to get you to the lake and back.

    Forget about it. I had a 21' triton with a 250 opti on the back and needed an F-150 to pull it. Sold it and the F-150. Now I pull a 19' triton with the taco. Gas mileage with the taco while pulling the boat, is down right bad. Since I'm so close to the water, its bearable.

    Yeah, he probably already made his decision; almost two years ago.
    Maybe admins should make post dates a little bigger, or in red if they're over a year old.

    OP? Did you get the boat?
    Maybe he doesn't even own a Tacoma anymore.

    OP hasn't been on for almost two years... He most likely got rid of the Tacoma.

    People ask if they should tow more than rated capacity all the time. The situation may be dead, but the topic is still relative.

    Of course. I was replying to those who were asking the OP.
