Plenty of pulling power with a Tundra. Even when its overloaded.

Tundra rocks!
Don't forget about this:

"Los Angeles is no stranger to gridlock. But it's not often the thing stopping traffic is from space.

We've been following the journeys of the retired space shuttles to their new homes (especially Enterprise, which now resides near the PopMech office in New York). This weekend the Endeavour made a 12-mile trek through the streets of Los Angeles, embarking from Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday and arriving at its retirement home at the California Science Center on Sunday.

In its three-day trip trip through LA, Endeavor hit blistering speeds of up to 2 mph, snaking its way between trees, homes, and traffic signals. And at one point, because of weight restrictions, a 4X4 Toyota Tundra pulled the 170,000-pound shuttle across the Manchester Boulevard Bridge. Not too shabby for a 381-hp, 5.7-liter V-8, given that the entire shuttle rig, including custom-made dolly, weighed just north of 300,000 pounds."

It pulls my Surveyor great!!!

I know this is going to ruffle feathers so apologies ahead of time. I have also seen a man pull a locomotive with his teeth.

We had one and, yes, they pull great but with a payload of less than 1,400 lbs. ours had to go when we decided to buy a 5th wheel. You would have to have a pin weight near nothing to keep from exceeding that kind of payload.

that Tundra commercial MIGHT have been believable if the unit the shuttle was loaded on hadn't been a SELF-PROPELLED unit!

If handling, safety and control are of no concern it would be a really nice setup to drive.
