Tow ratings

I was just curious who comes up with the tow ratings for vehicles.

I was looking through my 2004 Trailblazer manual the other day. I hit the towing section. It claims that thing can tow 5,100 pounds! It has a tough time towing ITSELF! I could not imagine putting 5,100 pounds behind it to yet!

Now.......if I can figure out how to get a goose through the rear hatch on this baby, I can tow our 32 footer!

I just saw a new tundra that had probably 10,000 lbs in a landscaping trailer.

I was waiting for the front tires to come off the ground.

I wanted to get a picture but the guy who owned it was right there and I didnt want him to ask why I was taking a picture and have to tell him to post it on the diesel place to make fun of it

You could have used some tact and said something like, "I never realized how heavy duty Toyota was making trucks now a days" - of course you would have had to say that without laughing - don't know if that would be possible

Maybe it was "sitting" there for a reason?
