    I have a 2001 PreRunner V6 with what it seems includes a "tow package" I looked in the owners manual and it doesn't say anything about a tow package. In my manual it says i have a 5,000 lb trailer capacity. In later manuals, it states that with the tow package that I can tow a 6,000 lb trailer. Also it states that to distinguish if i have a tow package to look at the shaft of the engine fan. If its green that means tow package. Mine is green. I also have that little box in the cubby hole behind the drivers seat that says "converter with bracket". I'm really confused about all this and I just want to know my actual tow capacity is.

    Thanks, so why does it state in later manuals 6,000 lb capacity? Check out this excerpt from the 2004 manual.
