Anyone know the definitive towing weight for a LWB 1996 3.0 Prado?

Handbook says 2300Kg but I have seen up to 2800Kg on websites?

I know about the 85% guideline, but am very experienced in towing and 1700Kg is useless for my business!

Max towing weight I found for the Prado from toyota in Australia is 2500kg with a braked trailer. Hope this helps.

It's got to be 2.8 metric tons - my LC2 with the same engine from '94 will do that easily.

Check with your local licensing authorities .What we can legally tow in Aust is a bit lower than what you guys can do. Sometimes the amount you can legally tow is way more than a safe amount even if the trailer has its own brakes. I always keep it below 80% of the towing vehicles weight and under perfect conditions maybe 100%. Of course your tow bar is also a limiting factor. Smile
