Hey guys, a buddy of mine needs to get his truck out of West Virginia after it broke down on our last snowboarding trip. My question is, can my 08 Limited, with the towing package handle towing his 07 Toyota Tundra? We are considering using a dolly where his rear wheels are on pavement and front two on the dolly. His truck is approximately 5000 lbs give or take a few hundred. Has anyone had any experience with this?

Don't want to stress the vehicle too much going over some mountain passes and a 300 mile trip back to eastern Virginia.

Any help would be great! Thanks!

Nope. Max tow rating is 3500 lbs with trailer brakes. Note the 'hard towing' rating is 1000 lbs.

From here:http://www.cars101.com/towing.html

"Tribeca
2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2010, 2008, 2007, 2006: 3500lbs with auxiliary transmission cooler. Otherwise 2000lbs.
Hard towing (hot, uphill, no trailer brakes, no trans cooler) 1000lbs"

@tdelker, thanks for the quick reply. This is the consensus I've got so far. I just wanted to double check with you guys. We'll investigate other alternatives I guess.
