do you tow your boat with the 4runner. I've got to tow mine about 35 miles, probably 4-5000 lbs in total, gonna try to do it early am.

What's bad is two weeks after you winterize, it's 75 degrees out.

Norco, it's forecasted at 75 degrees for the whole upcoming week, /killself. I did the winterization myself so I suppose I could change my mind but it's all cleaned up and the bags are (as you can see) already out so I doubt I'll do it. <BR> <BR>Jon, I've never tried to tow my 24 with the 4Runner. It's only a V6 and although it is rated at 5k lbs max I don't trust it. I used to pull a Mastercraft X7 with it and it didn't like it very much then, so I know my 24 would give it hell. It's also a 2wd, and it would have trouble pulling the X7 out of the water sometimes (boat-power-boost ftw!) It also has 178k miles, which you never know what will happen if you make it do too much work. She's my daily driver, I tow the boat with this: <BR> <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/746140.jpg" alt="Upload">
