I've hauled loads. The power rear window makes hauling lumber and patio cover sheeting a breeze. Because I have a cargo tray I've also hauled sod, bags of ground cover, game from hunting & fishing excursions, basically anything that isn't loose like rocks or dirt. I've also used the roof rack when the interior was loaded. Although I never had a problem I am always concerned about the amount of weight resting on the hatchback opening with the window down. The heaviest load I ever hauled was my family as we're all over 200lbs, and between the 5 of us I'm pretty sure I was over my load carrying capacity! Throttle response was sluggish too and the air conditioning couldn't keep up.
Fyi - with the rear window down aerodynamics will suck exhaust into the cabin, so beware. Don't run your HVAC on recirculate if that window is open.
Thanks for the reply! Always wondered but weighing options in terms of how practical it would be. May be better to settle on a Tacoma due to needing to haul taller items like appliances and furniture; not having a personal truck continues to bite my family in the ass more often than I'd like to admit lol
My rear brake lights stopped working. The high mounted brake light is still working along with the tail lights. The bulb is the same for the rear brake and tail lights. Is this a faulty wiring problem or relay switch?
I have a 97 4Runner that has developed a leak on a factory sunroof. The water comes through the seal of the glass and the frame of the sunroof. Does anyone now the proper way to seal this or should some windshield silicone be put around the perimeter of the glass/frame? Any help appreciated!!
The maintence light stays on even though the engine oil checks out ok. This happened once before and I was able to correct the problem only I forget what I did...something to do with the odometer buttons comes to mind. Anyone have an idea?
