    Needed a new truck for work, so I figured it was a good excuse to buy another toyota. So I found a sweet extended cab SR5 with a 5spd and 4wd. I previously drove a 94 powerstroke and oh what a feeling. Sorry, no pics.

    I've got a suspension question if someone feels like saving me a search.I'd love the ability my st165 and ma70 (3200lbs each) on a 1900lb trailer. As you can imagine, this presents a problem. Low range gets it rolling, but there's too much sag. I'm not insistant upon towing with this vehicle, as I've got a "deuce and a half" But it's be nice. I've also got to have it loaded down with a tool box, ladder rack and I'd rather not have it any higher. Having to put it in low at every stoplight presents a problem. I don't know the condition of the clutch, so I'm timid. Any experience pulling 5k lbs, greatly appreciated.
