    :notsure: They say its a stock, driven right off the lot Tundy. Something tells me that the "trailer" is powered and the Tundy didn't do all of the work.

    The rest of the trip uses the powered transporters...

    "Endeavour's custom transport was moved out and wheeled dollies took the place of the four vehicles."

    Just have to get the load moving. The Tundra probably has enough torque.

    Tacos can tow a bicycle. It might hit the bump stops though.

    I hate stunts and commercials that do stuff and then tell you not to. I saw a ton of small print about the Tundra and how you can't do that to your truck. Toyota would deny coverage of any failure in a second if they knew this was what caused damage to your truck. Who gives a crap what the truck can do if it's not something YOU could do with the truck if you bought it?

    Worst case of this I've seen was a jeep commercial a few years ago. It showed the new grand cherokee going through a swamp and up a mountain and then it was like "never drive your vehicle through water or on rugged terrain. The driving demonstrated here will cause sever vehicle damage not covered by your warranty."

    Crap like this should be outlawed under truth in advertising laws.

    Only towed my motorcycle and trailer with it. Btw, I thought the Tundra was towing the shuttle today? I need to go find a video of that.
