I pull my Heep with mine; not exactly the same as a big diesel, but it manages to get the 6,500#'s down the road.

I have tweaked mine a bit in the form of a rear sway bar, R9000x's, and an AAL to match the ride height of the Kings in front....all these mods made towing more stable.

I still find that it is somewhat sensistive to tongue weight though.

The 32's, on the other hand, have left me shopping for some 4.30's.

It's sad the New 4runner is rated to tow more than the Tundra....

I'll get a Tundra if it ever breaks the 9000 lbs towing capacity mark.

Rated for, and capable of are two different things.

I agree that the Tundra is anything but a tow beast; maybe one day Toyota will build a true fullsize.

The most I've towed was a early 90's honda accord on a tow dolly. The truck towed without a hiccup. I've had my tundra towed on a trailer from Uhaul with another tundra. Didn't experience many inclines and higher elevations but, it pulled it really well.

Scott, you just plain suck...a brand new CTD, a Killer-T100, AND a Runner...how many trucks do you need? ;)

what do you think about a Chevy 2500/Dodge 2500 or Ford F-250??
I am trying to find myself a tow rig, too
Looking at a 1994 Chevy 2500 ext cab 4x4 tomorrow!!!
it has 120K and they are asking $5995, I think it is a fair price, but I am going to try and get it for $4500.
wish me good luck!

That's a funny looking Accord.

tundra hauler

I pull my SAS taco just about everywhere I go and it pulls it really well. I stayed up with a s/c'ed taco on all those passed going to and from Moab. I do have to admit it though. The Tundra could use a little bit more stability in the rear but for a half ton, it has impressed me. The 04 Tundras have 285 horsepower instead of my 02 that has 239 or something like that. and toyota is supposedly coming out with a 3/4 ton heavy duty with a cat diesel!!! for 06. That's when I'll be turning my Tundra into a baja machine and buying an 06.

Not to be rude, but having pulled my Heep many times with the Tundra, and having owned a S/C Taco for six years, I call BS!

What tires and gears are you running in the Tundra?

On a more positive note, I put a Hellwig rear swaybar on the Tundra, and it helps out alot, particularly while towing. The AAL helps reduce the sensitivity to tongue weight as well.
