    2012 PreRunner SR5 2WD
    ARE tonneau cover, Electric Pop & Lock tail gate, 2 lighter plugs in bed, Reese hitch/ factory wiring, OEM Bed Extender and fog lights.
    I have a 2012 PreRunner 2.7 AUTO. I have a dealer installed 4 pin wiring/ and Reese hitch. The manual states that I can tow 3500 lbs as it sits. Checking forums I see most say I need a TRANS COOLER to tow. The Dealership and manual says NO. I know it can't hurt/ but will it help ??

    I am looking to tow a Kendon MC trailer (wt <400 lbs) and my Harley Ultra (wt<1000 lbs) even if I tow 2 bikes I will still be 1000 lbs under the max 3500 wt.

    My question, if towing with a 2.7 are you with or without a trans cooler ??

    BTW: I am not cheap, since buying the truck last week I put into it over $4000 in extras. I just hate cutting lines and adding in new ones. I am planing a road trip from Florida to Strugis pulling the bike and I don't want to deal with any leaking lines.

    Thanks JIM

    I would add one just as cheap insurance.
