    The 2010-current 4Runner is limited to 5,000lbs towing capacity not 6,300lbs.

    You could go with a B&M 70268 trans cooler.

    I will never tow near capacity in a 4 runner. I always limit towing to 80 percent of max towing and would still add airbags and a brake controller. A short wheelbase, soft suspended suv like the 4 is not the greatest of tow vehicles. Yes it will tow things and I tow my dirt bikes all the time but I would suggest to get a proper tow vehicle if you need to tow max or more than max of what the 4 can tow. YMMV.
