    Looking for a 2nd gen regular cab 4 cylinder right now. I moved into a house 6 months ago and have to do a lot of work on the place. I need to move gravel, sand, blocks, plants, wood.

    The Toyota site has the 2011 model payload at 1350 lbs. So Does that mean I can't load the bed with more than 1170 assuming I weigh 180? Just wondering if you guys know the load limits based on personal jobs.

    Yes. Payload includes the weight of all people, and gear in the vehicle. Best thing is to have the truck weighed, with you in it, and subtract that from the GVW.

    good idea

    Yeah I thought air bags were standard. Is there good replacement springs that won't break the bank? I am only traveling a few miles with loads and the majority of the time I won't have a lot of weight in the bed.
