    What is the towing capacity fora supercharged 2002 v6 RWD tacoma? I need to haul about 1,500 sq. ft of old timber from remodeling project about 45 miles and wanted to know so I can rent the right trailer and hopefully get the job done in one move. 95% of the driving will be highway miles. Thanks

    really? How far did you go with that load? After seeing that I don't think " the hammer" will have any problem with some remodeling debris.

    You have a 2nd gen which would probably explain it since it has a bigger engine

    I found mine in a strange place... the bumper. Mine's a 2.4 with no tow package. It says 350 tongue weight 3500 max trailer weight right on the bumper.
