    So i am deciding what is better to pull something home with. Our 2007 chevrolet silverado (automatic) or my 2006 tacoma with a Toytec 2" AAL (6spd manual)? Does anyone know the the payload increase with my AAL?

    It won't increase it will just handle the load better.

    Isn't that the same as an increase?

    Well my decision comes into play because the tongue weight is 1,200lbs for what i will be pulling.

    Have you ever seen the "silverado squat"? That wonderfully luxurious ride squats like a son of a gun with any sort of load at all. When compared to my tacoma, my tacoma hardly squats at all.

    If you are pulling something with a 1200lb tongue weight, you need to rent a bigger truck than a half ton with a class III hitch (silvarado). A tacoma with a class III is not going to cut it either.

    This would be the correct answer. If the trailer is loaded correctly with a 1200 lb tongue weight it will gross 12,000 lbs, way far over and above what either of your options can handle. Borrow, beg, or rent a one ton with a WD hitch, it's not worth killing your truck, yourself, or someone else over.

    He hasn't listed what the gross trailer weight is yet. Odds are, the trailer weighs too much for either truck.

    Having owned a 5.3 Z71 Silverado, I can attest that the Chevy will pull a whole lot more than a Taco.

    And who said that the thing I would be pulling is even a trailer? People jumping to conclusions. Tisk. Tisk. The weight is only 7,650 lbs.
    Its a grain cart. http://www.jm-inc.com/specifications/grain_cart_spec_750-16.html This one, to be precise.

    isn't that over the limits of the chevy also? It is definatly way too much for the taco for sure.

    And top speed with one of these bad boys is about 35 before they get a lope going.

    Poorly designed trailer. That said, I'm sure the taco will pull it but it's over the limit. No matter what vehicle you use, slow down and use extra breaking distance for sure.

    I had 1200 pounds of concrete in my bed and was an inch off my bumpstops. That was WITH and AAL and balanced on all four wheels. That much weight on the back of either vehicle will more than likely bottom out the suspension and remove way too much weight from the front of the vehicle to drive home safely.
