I think there are a couple of others here that pull with a Tacoma, or Taco as I've seen them write. Isn't D-mo one of them?

See my post # 18. I don't think the OEM Class II hitch is rated for a WDH.

You'll miss your truck, I miss mine. But the Jeep still wins in the end.

When my Tundra finally meets its maker, hopefully in about 10 more years, I'll switch to a Tacoma. They have plenty of pulling power and the shorter, narrower chassis makes them better off road.

That is one of our CRD members on LostJeeps.com. Even though he has a Hensley, too much trailer!

Well, I considered both photoshop and CRD. The engine might take it but I doubt the Rest is very happy when hooked up.

Nope, that is a real photo. Even though the CRD is rated outside the North American market for 7500ish pounds with the automatic 5-45RFE, my 4500 pounds of trailer with a hot tune is what I feel is close to max. There is a member who use to tow generators, and towed 7000 pounds of generator and large gauge wire. The generator has a lot less frontal area than a travel trailer.

Edit here is a link to the thread in the LostJeeps Forum.
