    new here, but not to toyotas. had an 83 and a 93standard cab. i've been thinking of selling my superduty and going back to toyota, been looking at about 2005 4x4 crewcab tocomas. how are these at pulling? Anypics of what you pull or haul? oh yea looking at the v6 so any info on pulling and hauling with the v6 is appreciated. i know it's not going to be anything crazy but im curious. both of mine were 4bangers. what kind of gas milage are you guys getting with the v6 running 31inch or 33inch tires because ill definitely lift it. thanks for any info:)

    We tow a highwall popup, a Fleetwood Niagara. GVWR of the Niagara is just under 4,000 pounds.

    We just did the first trip with the Niagara after having the TSB done on the Tacoma. Those Toyota engineers know what they're doing, loaded, the ride with the TSB was night and day better than without it. I'm VERY happy I had that done and recommend getting it done if you're going to tow.
