Maybe someone can help me. I understand that Toyota does not reccomend towing their trucks or SUV's. Does anyone know why? Is there a way to tow them without damaging them? I'm looking to tow a manual FJ.

I'd talk to the dealership about how you want to use it. I belive if you tow it and cause damage you can kiss your warranty goodbye.

Here is a thread about towing rigs:

Hope this helps? Good luck.
Also FYI the FSM say "Do not tow the Tacoma" as a second vehicle.

sorry for the rant. but beware, there is a ridiculous amount of misinformation spread on this forum about dinghy towing.

i can head off the typical responses:

1) get a trailer (nevermind most rv's have a tow max of 5k lbs);
2) never flat tow (nevermind that literally thousands of rv'ers are flat towing millions of miles each year);
3) you have to disconnect the driveshaft no matter what (nevermind that rv'ers typically have to tow/drive/tow/drive, many times per day).

i would consult with someone who knew what they were talking about, such as marlin, remco, or even rv.net, rather than relying on the knowledge of this forum. sorry, ttora folks may know a lot about other things, but they certaintly don't know jack about dinghy towing.

ok, rant off.
