Ok, I have a 2001 Toyota Tacoma Dbl Cab V6 TRD. I know the max towing capasity is 5000 Lbs. What limits that? If I got leafsprings, Supercharger, Big a$$ tranny cooler, URD kit, upgrade the breaks, would this increase the towing capasity? Reason being I want to get a small toy hauler and loaded weight is 7400, yes I know that is more than my truck, or Am I limited because the truck weighs so little?
Thanks for any help

You're limited because of:
  • frame strength
  • truck weight
  • braking
You'll get thrown around like a ragdoll with that much weight, and will be a danger on the road.

look at the American freedom trailers. They make an awsome 14' toy box with a complete bathroom and it only weighs 2000 lbs dry. It is perfect to tow and can carry 4 dirt bikes and gear. I got rid of my 16' toy box with only a shower and im looking to get this one. The price is less than the carson fun runner. at $6200.00 give or take options. Check out usabankrepos.com
