Barely enough HP or braking ability.

Not to mention I only get 22mpg doing 80mph while towing.

That get's the big THUMBS UP from me!!!!!!!!! Torque to spare, brakes can surely handle it, fairly confident the magnetic suspension is up to the task.......Reminds me of the crazy f&%kers who said let's drop a 427 in a Brit chassis, or that the thing a Mercedes needs most are tuned V8's. . .LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!(but then again, it's probably just because I'm your kind of crazy)

barley sticks out on a tacoma!! i liked it cause i had no space to keep a trailer anywhere. it was very stable on there also. easy to load and unload and strap down by myslef.

also the middle pic is up there with out straps on it yet

What about exceeding tongue weight?
I'm sure they have it worked out, but that is scary.

If I had a truck I'd have it in the bed for sure.

I know u have used it before, but damn scary to look at.
