Is anyone towing a 21 with a Toyota Tacoma SR5? If so, pros/cons?

Thank you!
Midlothian, Tx

Bobby, can you give us your spec's located on your driver side door jamb of your Taco? That would help in filtering the responses....

I believe your experience will vary depending on if you have the 4.0 or the newer 3.5 engine. There is some pretty good info within the post below. Do check your door jam payload ratings as that is usually the limiting factor for a Tacoma (and most vehicles actually). The tongue weight for a 21 is usually around 450 +/- when loaded. WDH, passengers, and cargo weights should be understood for safe traveling and to prevent vehicle overloading.

Can’t help directly because we tow a 19 with a 4Runner, but reading some of the previous threads on this topic may help. Under the search bar at the top the “Search Site / Google” box is very useful in finding old threads.
