    The first drive was towing my car back from the dealership. 750 klms home.
    Love that 'tap' shift down to 4th for the hills.

    2li7mrk_525ce663a94addee4bf47c2072287048bfe20e69.jpg I went to Houston and found a 60 Deville that had been sitting since the Carter administration. Cranked it up on a Uhaul auto hauler. Put it behind the 06 Tacoma with tow package. Long ago I added a second trans cooler.
    Anyway hauled car 350 miles at 50mph. If I went above 55 it got a little shaky but a tap on the brakes applied the trailer brakes and all was good.
    Made sure to stay at 50.
    Truck handled great.
    Total weight of car and trailer was a tad over max rating.

    This is a fairly typical load I haul about twice a month. Including trailer it's about 5500 lbs.

    Just got back from a 3 hour trip with my taco and a 6129lb tow (wife's CX-7 on a uhaul auto transport). It pulled it amazingly! Power nor braking was ever an issue. I did keep it at 55 mph though.

    I've been up to about 6650 before. Towed two tons of pellets home and thought the trailer was a few hundred pounds lighter. It did okay, power was adequate. Braking was fine, but I had trailer brakes.

    Didn't figure out the true weight of the trailer until I ran scrap with it another time.

    I used this before I bought the Tacoma. This load was 6500 lbs.
    trailer has brakes. A little more power would have been nice but it towed well all the same.
