    Greeting forum members.
    I am getting ready to pull the trigger on going from 2010 4.6 lt to 2013 5.7 Crewmax.
    In large part because I need the increased tow capacity.
    Toyota brochure claims 10,400 capability, but in the specs area claims 9000lbs.
    I need the 10400 to be the number.
    Can anyone give me some insight?
    Thanks in advance.

    not 10k thats for sure. i think that number is including vehicle weight so that might have to be deducted, not to mention passenger and fuel weigh as well.

    Depends on cab configuration, trim package, engine, and number of drive wheels.
    For example, regular cab 2x4 with SR package and 5.7 long bed is 10,500lbs. Whereas any of the crewmax configs with the 5.7 and 4x4 is 9,800 lbs.

    You can check specs here on page 37, basically the same: http://www.toyota.com/tundra/ebrochure/


    Edit:
    Found the 2013: http://www.toyotacertified.com/ebrochures/13_tundra.pdf
    9900 for 4x2 CM, 9000 for 4x4 CM in most packages.
    9300 for 4x2 CM Limited & Platinum. 9000 for 4x4 CM Limited & Platinum.

    10,400 is for regular cab 2x4

    Thank you.
    I learned that if equipped with trailer brakes and such it helps. I am looking to haul a 29 or 30 ft RV a,d the 10k number would work fine.
    I have the trd crew. The 4X2 throws me off a little. IS this a strictly two wheel drive rig?

    No, they offer both 2x4 and 4x4. But they have different max tow capacity. Any weight you add to the truck (for example a front diff and all the fixings that come with 4x4) will reduce max tow capacity. Max tow capacity is exactly that...what it's capable of towing. Start adding more passengers other than the driver and loading the bed down, you'll max out payload and/or GCW before you max out tow capacity.

    Keep in mind that these trucks only have a payload of around 1300/1400 pounds (4wd/2wd). With a 10k trailer, at least 750 lbs of that payload is dedicated to tongue weight. More likely 1000 lbs tongue weight with a 10k trailer. YRMV. But even if you assume 750, that leaves you with 1300-750=550 lbs for passengers and cargo. Add 3 full sized adults males you are maxed out on payload.

    Great information. Thank you.
    We will not be maxed on cargo. Just the wife and I most of the time and we are not heavy people. Once in a while I will load my quad in back which is around 700 lbs, but that would be pretty rare.
    Thank you for sharing your obvious wisdom.
    Much appreciated.

    I have little doubts that the truck will pull more than 10,400 lbs even if the brochure says 10,400 capability. I've pulled 12,000 lb fertilizer trailers with a 2011 DC Rock Warrior, but we don't really pay attention to tow/GVWR's in the Ag industry lol.

    Drivers door, there are two stickers that will tell you what the truck capacity is.

    My 12 CM is 1325 lbs cargo. The other sticker says I can pull 9004 lbs. In the event you want the higher tow rating, the DC is the better option.
