How much can i really tow with my rig having stock suspension and 200k on the clock? I'm planning on towing a 2nd gen 4runner to move it about 20 miles.should i just borrow my friends Cummins Dodge and get it over with?
Make sure you have SOME tongue weight on the trailer or else the "tail will wag the dog". Not fun. Your 60 should have no trouble pulling that load 20 miles. As long as it is not all uphill. Even than it will pull it. Just not very fast. Have fun and tow safely.
I tow my ae86 on an 18 foot tandem axle car hauler around the city all the time. It doesn't get over 80km/h on the highway on the flattest ground, but it does fine in the city when I can keep it in third. I'm sure with the 2f you wouldn't have an huge issue towing. I've also flat towed a 1985 Toyota Pickup across the city, an Envoy, and an old f350 15kms out of the bush.
My cruiser is a BJ60, so it's making 82hp. Add on top of that it's SOA, 35''s, and with the 3/8th bumpers front and rear, full size spare and all the storage s*** in the truck I'm pretty sure the truck itself is breaking 6000lbs.
Here is a photo I snapped last spring heading to a shop with the car. I had my old phone back then so it looks like a watercolor painting.:
