    I've been looking at 4 runners lately and am kinda in the dark about the towing capacity. I see some with tow hitches and some without but I'm being told by salesmen that they both can tow 5,000lbs.
    It seems to me that if it has a factory installed hitch then it should have a "tow package" which means trans cooler, bigger alt, battery, and wiring.
    Do 4 runners come with tow packages or is the hitch pretty much it?
    I know I can add an aftermarket trans cooler but would rather have the Toyota reliability from factory parts.
    WWTWD?

    What year 4runner? From what I understand in my limited amount of time learning about T4Rs is the 3rd gens have factory tow packages and the 3.4 is good for 5k. The 03+ v6 is good for 5k I believe and the 4.7 is 7k i think.
