Nice. Makes sense now. Original was not rated for the load. Ratings have some tolerance which is why it worked as long as it did. Good that you noticed and corrected. The new one should not have...

Huh? What?

Most trucks and SUVs, including those based on 1/2 tons have a 7 pin and 4 pin trailer plug. The 4 pin does not have the reverse lockout, but the 7 pin most definitely does. Now, it...

I went the opposite. Taco to 4Runner. Definitely liked the 4Runner better. I’ve since driven newer versions of each as rentals. 4Runner is the better choice in most situations. Only exception...

Which car was at fault? The insurance tied to that car would be on the hook for it. Also, if the rental contract included the insurance, then that should kick in, but it sounds like that might not...

Doesn’t look like you got hit. If you did, I would expect it to be bent the other way. Looks to me like the load is too much for the drawbar, and probably the ball as well. What are you towing...

Iím pretty sure I have that same coupler. It definitely is pretty nice.

I also think I have the same jack. Actually two of them. Makes it a little more stable at full height. If you havenít...

Several years ago, I went on a dive charter. When I returned to my car, I couldnít find my keys. Went back to the boat to check, but couldnít find them. I thought...

Not in a long time. I switched to a 7 pin about 10 years ago.

I had one failure afterwards due to corrosion. Replaced the connector and rewired. Before closing it up, I filled the inside of the...

For every engine, the torque and horsepower curves cross at the same point. 5252 RPM. Usually, people talk about peak numbers, which are pretty meaningless if the engine never gets to that peak. ...

A lot will depend on current trailer condition. If brakes and lines are in good shape, that will cut down on some time. If you already have a 7 way connector and junction box, that will save even...

Yep. They definitely are rare. When I was buying the 4Runner, I had a couple must haves that proved challenging. 4x4 and V8 were the tough ones. None of my local dealers had any on the lot. ...

I agree with this to a point. If trailer is single axle, you don't need to worry unless you have excessive or too little tongue weight. If tandem or more axles, you'll want it to be fairly level to...

Yep, same here. I pulled way too much boat out of the ramp with that 4Runner. My math was bad and I underestimated the weight, so I was a bit over the limit. But, that SUV pulled it out of the...

Can you point to where I said I was certain you will die? I was simply pointing out some risks, and why training is helpful.

I don’t agree that you get this simple procedure. Others have said...

Now's the time. They do a reduced rate based on age. I've never seen any sales for lifetime licenses. There are 3 rates based on age. Saltwater is $126.50 for age 4 and under, $226.50 age 5-12,...

Yeah. Like others have said, there is no magic number. The bends is what most non-divers are familiar with, but there are others that can afflict divers, and many are more severe.

I agree. At...

A couple vehicles back, I had a 2006 4Runner. When shopping for it, I had a heck of a time finding what I wanted. I wanted the 4x4 and V8 (back then they offered the 4.7 V8.). That was...
