    I bought the brake controller so I could pull my dad’s Casita trailer which it has a fully loaded weight of 3,000 lbs.

    So I too am curious the weight to get estimate how well it will put that trailer

    Ya it is. For now. I thought about putting airbags on back but not sure. I am using a weight distribution hitch. Without it its squated pretty bad.

    Nice! I would definitely put airbags on. Would also be interesting to know your transmission temps. Do you own a Scangauge?

    My dad put airbags on his f150 said it works great. I just bought my 4Runner like 2 weeks ago, so don’t have funds for everything at once

    I think the best thing about the airbags is that they are a huge bang for the buck. Not that expensive but really increase the safety and feel while towing on the soft suspension that comes stock on the 4.
