    I've hauled a lot of crap, but i think the heaviest load was 1300lbs. My truck handled it great. I'm wondering if the truck would hold 2000lbs???

    Correct me if I'm wrong. But the Tacoma is technically a "1/4 ton" truck. That would mean it's not recommended to load more than 500 pounds into the bed or else you are putting yourself in danger. You're not going to like the way this thread goes

    F-150's and Tundras are half tons. F-250's are 3/4 tons and F-350s are 1 tons. Tacoma does not equal F-150

    I retract my statement. I guess I don't understand why people give trucks the names they do. I know for certain that F-150s and Tundras are referred to as "1/2 Ton Trucks." Thinking about it now, I've never really heard what payload capacity Tacomas are referred to by.

    Oh, and mmadej87, your signature is mesmerizing :drool:

    I have hauled 2150 pounds in my old 2002 tacoma, and it pulled it just fine. I was more worried about the tires than I was the truck, and I was also only going about 8 miles from the quarry to my house. I know I am suppose to have pictures, but I don't so you will just have to take my word on this one, sorry!

    in my book, a tacoma is 3 f-150's, may not be as strong, but lasts twice as long and has a sweet name :D

    I haven't loaded up my '13 at all since I've had it, but my '04 2.7L Ex Cab 4x4 had 15 sheets of 4x10 sheetrock in it once! Never actually did the math... 15 sheets of 10's, 40sq ft per sheet, 600 sq ft X 2.2 lbs per sq ft= 1320 lbs! LOL, plus a half dozen 4x6's under it all! I drove about 6 miles like that, it was SERIOUSLY overloaded LOL

    I've got a pre-runner 4.0 auto, Toyota lists the curb weight at
    3835, GVW of 5250, difference is 1415 but the sticker on the door jam lists GVW at 5400lbs, which is 150lbs higher. Not sure what to think. If curb weight is 3835 per Toyota and GVW is 5400, that leaves 1565 for cargo. Anyway a 1/4 ton is 500lbs and my Toco is rated close to 3/4 ton

    The most I've had in my prerunner was a little over 2100, I had a pallet of feed, around 42 bags at 50lbs.

    I've had three 55 gallon oil drums that were full in the bed several times.
