I had my hunting gear distributed evenly in the crew cab and the shortbed appx 100pds in the back seat, only myself 220pd in driver seat, and appx 400 pds in the truck bed.

Quote: Originally posted by Lone Ranger If you are seriously looking at towing near 6500-7000 lbs at all regularly, you should get something larger than the 4runner.

These trucks are extremely capable. Left turn signal stayed on and air conditioner was working intermittently. Raise your sights and budget to the ¾-ton lineup, add running boards as needed' and figure on carrying 1,500 lbs of cargo.

If you cannot find any problems, the speed at which trailer swaying occurred is beyond the limit of your particular vehicle-trailer combination.
