    I know that the 4.0L V6 SR5 prerunners with a tow package are rated 6500lbs thats strong for a mid-size truck. But today I had 4000+ that i towed with my taco and thats the heaviest its ever pulled, I have not done the TSB for the rear going from a 3 pack to a 4 pack and yet it stilled pulled like a dream. So I just wanted to know what yall have towed with your tacos and what you thought about the way it did........

    I've only ever towed my boat which is an 18" center console. Only 1500lbs not counting motor and trailer. Pulls that like nothing.

    I pulled my 17 ft Stratos boat for the first time last week,1800-2000 lbs .It wasent over run with power but it did pull ok..several steep hills..I dont think I'd want to pull anything much heavier here in the mountains..

    5,000 pounds today, my dad's boat. Surprised me that it would actually pull it but you could definitely feel the boat behind you.

    I made a cross-country move in 2008. Had the box LOADED, three people in the truck, towing my firebird on a trailer and the firebird was FULL of stuff including home stereo, etc... Must've been 5000lbs there at least. Pulled it through the rocky mountains, and while I had to slow down quite a bit, I made it! Towed no problem, but mileage went to S**T!

    Had a buddy with a DCLB pull an 18' trailer loaded with ceramic tiles. He figured it weighed around 9000lbs, as the tiles actually broke through the bottom of his trailer! He made it home, but said he'd never do it again!

    Wow, a 21ft on a single axle trailer? I figured they would have that on a tandem axle trailer.

    I pull a 16' Toy Hauler that weighs 4100 lbs dry. I def know it's back there especially at highway speeds, mind you, that with that, I'm probably going 10mph under highway speed, so needless to say @ 65 it does well. Mileage goes way down. I would say about half not pulling anything.

    So far mine has only towed around 1,000 pounds and that was this weekend.
    It handled it great but I don't know if and when I would tow much more than that.
