Maybe it's not enough weight. It's not like it's towing the space shuttle or anything.

OUCH! That is a great visual for why a vehicle's capabilities, set up and towing capacities should be heeded! I would rather be overkill in ability and preparedness...I'm just not one to take unnecessary risks when traveling alone to "B.F.E." on long stretches of isolated roads in the wee hours of the morning...

jlbreaux - I dunno...between your posts of these overloaded vehicles & "Rocket City Rednecks" on tv, I am not sure which has proved more entertaining! LOL...big diff is the guys on tv purposely are out to provide viewer entertainment versus the dummies who have no clue about loading nd towing in the photos...thanks for sharing the link! Wow!

I'd never buy another Toyota.
I've bought several. Every time I've had an issue they've treated me like crap. They act like the sun shines out their *****.

Have y'all seen the commercial on TV for the new Nissan Pathfinder...it claims a tow capacity of 5K (realistic ) BUT at the end of the clip they are towing a 28' Airstream camper through the redwoods!
They don't make "ultra light" Airstreams! Too funny, these type of commercials are what get people in trouble
