will the 6.7 run on 12 volt when you towing? I was thinking i didnt need anything bigger than 4.3 but i thought there was freezer in the 4.3

2013 Tacoma Toyota 4.0 v-6 was a little concerned at first but other seem to be using it with no problem

Ya, that's my truck also. It's a 2014 w/double cab and long bed and I'm a little concern also. The payload is only 1050, so with cap, wife, me, 2 dogs, bicycle or two in the back, 360-380 tounge wt. that puts me with in 50 lbs of max. I don't know.
Going to the dealer today to see what they can do to put me in a tundra with the 4.6 engine. We'll see. If they don't give me a decent deal I will keep what I got. I love my Tacoma just concerned.

The 19 I went and look at the guy has been towing the 19 since new in 2010 picked up at factory he says it was no problem except gas.LOL If i was you i put the bikes on the bike rate on trailer. that will take it off the payload and reduce some tounge weight . I thinking i end up adding a leaf spring . I just bought the truck and has less than 3000 miles so i hat to go truck shopping.But i got just access cab so my payload is 1450

Yes, the 4.3 has a freezer compartment, but it's a small compartment inside the fridge compartment at the top. The new 6.7 has two exterior door and separate freezer and fridge compartments. Either fridge will run on 12V when towing. They are both 3 way fridges (propane, AC or DC). However, neither fridge will cool as well when running on 12V as they would on propane. In order for an absorption fridge to cool, it uses heat to start the absorption cycle. A flame from a propane burner is a much better heat source than an electrical heating element. So, they cool better on propane than on either AC or DC. This holds true for basically every absorption fridge out there.
