Tongue weight I believe is ~1,000lbs, and total weight could be UP-TO 9,000lb, that is over-estimating it though.

Looks like I'll probably be looking into a 3/4 ton. It's a damn shame Toyota doesn't make one.

Thanks, that's sounds like a really good deal. Unfortunately I need a crew cab, and a V10 gas engine probably gets horrible MPG! Thanks for the offer though, sorry to hear about your dad.

I absolutely LOVE my tundra but no way should someone that is planning on maxing out the listed capability or even exceeding it buy one for that job. Can it handle it? YES...Should you do it....NO. Get a 3/4 ton diesel like a F250 super duty and be well within its capability.

I hate turning people away from a Tundra but that's reality, Until Toyota makes a 3/4 ton diesel anyway.

The v-10 has NO power either! I traded a 6 month old f-250 with a v-10for my tundra. The largest item I tow is a 2008 30 foot Formula sitting on a triple axle steel trailer. With the 150 gallons of fuel, the boat and trailer push 10000 lbs. I do just fine with it, the Ford could not get up hills....

I tow a 7600 lbs (dry)5W with mine. Tows great, gas milage does suck. But for the 10 times a year that I go camping this combination works great. Did tow a 5600 lbs TT that also towed without and problems. Good luck in what ever you decide.

The Tundra towing the Space Shuttle seems goofy to me. Sure it is a cool commercial but come on we all know it would not do it on a 100 mile trip.

My fear would be the first hill...not going up but coming down and trying to slow down that sled.

For towing just do the math, numbers do not lie for what the truck is rated at and what is safe.

Nate, I just towed my boat from NC to FL at 65 mph (537 mile trip) boat is 25ft CC hydra-sports weighs about 8500lbs and I got 7.1 mpg goes about 150 miles per tank and I am S/C have a 3/1 leveling kit and running 305/55/20 falken wildpeaks. Hope this helps in your decision however it has no problem pulling it. I am probably going to drop tire size to 305/50s and see if I get a little better mpg's and take off the 3/1 kit.

I tow a 5,500 dry, 7,500 loaded travel trailer with my 5.7 crewmax. Tows it great in mountains or flat...but I don't think it could tow much more safely.
