My trd Tacoma had no issues pulling a 12 foot trailer with a 60" ztr, walk behind, and trimmer.

4.0 liter v6, but I really don't have a heavy foot. Stops fine but anything bigger I'd want a half ton.

Hey lawn_jockey, those rangers are really nice. Where did you get the beds from, and are they hard to install?

Thought I would bump this. I run an 87 toyota at the moment. An f250 for bigger stuff and plowing. My 12 foot trailer with walk behind and 60" dixie can still be a son of a gun to stop in the rain. This would probably be fixed with trailer brakes but I plan to upgrade this fall.

I would never consider pulling more on a regular basis . The truck will pull a house but stopping is difficult in less than ideal conditions. I will miss the nimble small truck and my 25+ miles a gallon without the trailer. I will especially miss a truck that just never has a problem and if it does I can fix in the driveway in an hr.
