    I have an 08' Tacoma TRD off road 4x4 6 speed manuel. Does anyone tow a boat with one of these? I'm mainly trying to figure out if it will be a problem getting up boat ramps with a stick.

    Put it in 4 low and don't turn. This is where manual hubs are nice.

    If you're good on hills towing, you'll do fine at the ramp. +1 on 4 lo. It makes takeoffs with a trailer painless.

    You really shouldnt have an issue. My 93 3.0 v6 will pull our boat with ease. You should be fine. Unless you got a big ass boat :p

    You will not have any problem, I tow a 18ft boat with my 06 6 speed... never have had a problem pulling out at any ramp... and it will do just fine in 2 wheel drive as long as you know how to drive it, and the ramp is in good shape
