Four wheel drive models used a live axle on leaf springs in front and back, with a front stabilizer bar. You cannot load your pickup with stuff and then expect to tow the 3500lbs+ also.

Through the early 1980s, the Hi-Lux used a solid-axle front and rear suspension, with rear leaf springs. Add recommended amount of oil, replace oil filler cap, run engine for a minute, let oil settle about 10 mins re-check oil level and adjust as needed, check oil again later to make sure no oil loss and correct level of oil.
You just tap the grease cap back in place to replace it. If the towing capacity of your vehicle is 3,500 pounds, and your boat and trailer weighs 3,700 pounds, you need a bigger truck. If you have more hefty loads, try heavy duty vehicles, including three-quarter-ton and one-ton trucks, which generally have bigger frames, firmer suspensions and more powerful engines. As we've seen, not much when it comes to half-ton trucks. Capacity does not include final drive. The towing capacity according to the owners manual is 3500 lbs.

The StepSide appeared in 2000, the four-door DoubleCab and S-Runner in 2001. A four-speed automatic transmission was available with all other trims of the 1994 Toyota Pickup. The turbocharger was fairly low-pressure; in 1987, it boosted power from 116 to just 135 horsepower at 4,800 rpm.
My brother and I were doing some tow work a few weeks ago with his Mercury Mariner Hybrid. On older vehicle stay with organic oil not synthetic newer vehicles may do best with a synthetic blend. My question is how are these capacities calculated. Some 2004-2005 models may have a sulfur smell during stop and go driving or hard acceleration; the dealer can fix this during the warranty period by replacing the catalytic converter and upgrading the computer. Run out is the amount of movement from top to bottom of rotor as you spin it.
Maximum carrying capacity of the car is 900 pounds; this includes the tongue weight of any trailer, the hitch or other external add-ons, occupants, luggage etc. Width of all models was 66. The dealer can replace the amplifier if it happens to you. You might find that the only difference are items like a bigger radiator and a lower rear axle ratio. Many times manufacturers list the bare-bones weight, to make it appear lighter so more people think they can tow it. Once the engine is up, pull the pan bolts and the oil pump is connected to the screen that's hanging down.
It turns out that not only do half-ton pickups weigh and carry more than a half ton, they can also tow more than a half ton.

It is measured from a perpendicular imaginary line to see if the rotor is running in a true pattern or if one part is not as true as another.

With an automatic transmission you should also add a good transmission fluid cooler. I have a '95 3. Wheelbase for regular-cab models was 103 inches and 121.
