    I have a stock 2010 SR5 Prerunner. I'm driving 30 miles to get some asphalt shingles, and I'm wondering how much I can safely haul. Would 600 pounds be too much? I'm still running the sorry Dunlap tires.

    Should be fine. Check you manual for payload capacity.

    600lbs will be fine. Load them more toward the front of the bed rather than behind the axle.

    Regular cab 4 banger FTW.

    1200+ lbs of hardwood flooring (added another 500+ lbs with me and my buddy + a lot of other tools).

    According to the '07 Brochure for Prerunner Payload:

    Standard: 1640lb
    Access (manual): 1610lb
    Access (auto): 1505lb
    Dbl Cab (auto): 1505lb
    Dbl Longbed: 1450lb

    I've had 1000+lb of concrete sacks and drove fine. In fact the standard cab prerunner handles a bit better with a few hundred pounds back there.

    I've had around 1000 lbs in the bed of my truck. I added airbags because it does sag a bit and you can feel the weight, but the truck handled it fine. Gas mileage will suffer a lot though if you run it over 65 when it's fully loaded.
