Hi All, one of my friends just bought the tundra 5.7L and towed his 6k lb boat the next day. Does anyone know if he could end up with engine/trans problems?

I would imagine as long as he alternated the RPM's for engine break in every once in a while he'd be fine. The tranny should not be an issue.
I went and picked up a trailor with mine as soon as i came off the lot.
I drive 30 miles each way to work, I'll be happy to break in a truck for towing
My dad always told me, its like stretching before you's not needed most of the time, just a good idea. Unless your friend was getting after it on the throttle, It should be fine.
