Clifford is a 2011 crewmax that we have been towing our EVO 2850 with. We have overcome the hills out here in the west by adding an AFE intake and TRD dual exhaust. I have also added sumo springs in the rear and has greatly improved the loaded ride. Click image for larger version

Our son pulled for years with Tundra. No problems with pulling within it's weight range. Lots of power. He loved that truck. The problem was horrendous fuel mileage empty or loaded.

Then he wanted to move up to a fifth wheel. Goodbye Tundra.....

I was close to buying one in early 2006 but didn't pull the trigger. I really wanted a 2nd generation but didn't want to wait till the end of 2006 so I traded in my 2004 ForeRunner Sport AWD with the V8 and bought a 2006 Chevy 2500HD as my new TV

I pulled my 20' Salem Lite with a 2004 Tundra 4.8l. It was OK on the flats but hills were terrible, sometimes I was doing 25mph on freeway hills (i.e. net extreme grades). It also got 7-9mpg when towing. Now I have a Duramax Silverado , won't ever go back. It's way too much truck for my little trailer but I bought it for the next trailer...

We had a '14 Tundra that we really liked. Problem was that the TT in the signature overloaded it even with just the two of us. As with most folks, we explored every avenue to avoid being overweight - all to no avail. Hence the Chevy 2500.

2007 tundra here

2007 Tundra with tow pkg. 5.8ltr long bed. Pulling 2018 hyper light bhhl. 24' Trailer pulls well with equalizer. Had a 1999 dodge with Cummins that I wore out at 165k miles. Got to where it was a 500.00 repair bill every time I used it. 3 sets of brake lines, shock mounts, shackles. replaced basically everything underneath that could rust away. When it came time for the 2nd set of fuel pumps and rails at 2700., I said that was enough.
