    Just bought a new 2010 PreRunner TRD Off Road last weekend. I only drive a few miles a day so I am at 110 miles now. Beautiful weekend coming up and I want to get my 16 ft cc on the water (approx 1500lbs total weight with trailer). Is it bad to tow it the 5 florida miles to the ramp to launch?

    The owners manual suggests not to tow before 500 miles on the odometer, this is to allow break in of the drive train components. However, i don't think it will hurt the truck. Florida is very flat and that will be in your favor.

    Welcome to the forums, I see your new and I now see that this thread is in the wrong section. :spy:
