Got a question in this arena. I have a 2017 TRD off road 4runner with a 3” lift with 285/70/17 A/Ts and will be pulling a 2020 AR210. I’m not worried about being able to pull it but I was curious if anyone else with 4runners may be able to chime in (or anyone really). Do you guys increase your tire pressure when towing? I have read multiple different theories here and one thing I can say, conclusively, is not to under inflate. The normal few mile trip to the launch isn’t what concerns me but the 100+ miler I’ll be making to bring the boat home from the dealer does. What are you all’s thoughts?

Just picked up a 2020 Silverado with the 3.0 duramax. Should pull the 240 nicely 👌
I’ll be interested to hear what your towing/non towing mpg’s are with this. I also have a 3.0 diesel.

Just bought a 2014 Roush Raptor Crew Cab to tow my Challenger 180. Bit of overkill, but had to get something better than my wife's Highlander and I have been suffering in a Camry Hybrid (her old car) for the last 4 years.61015255879__253524B8-40E4-4C66-B253-ADF329FC5049.JPG

I forgot to take a pic last fall when my new to me boat came out for the season, so here it is now. We bought the truck specifically to tow the boat. We told ourselves it would be less expensive to buy a truck and tow it than get a slip for the season. I’ll be taking it to the marina tomorrow to put it in its slip!

I’ve been averaging 24 mpg. Can get 28+ highway and just got 14 pulling the ar240 with a lot of hills

That's pretty similar to what I've been getting. Just came back from a 2500 mile trip to FL with the boat, averaged 14 MPG. My non-towing MPG have been 23 ish, but that's mainly in town. It hasn't been very warm here either until just this week, so that should help.
