towing weight

I have a 98 tacoma with K&N intake, supercharger, 3" flowmaster, and firestone airbags. Will I be able to pull a 5000 lb trailer with any problems. I know the rating is around 3500 for tacomas but I'm just hoping I have increased this enough.

Those ratings also mirror the brakes. So even though you can pull that wieght you might have a decreased stopping distance. But I'm sure someone with real experience will help you.

Read the owners manual.

A simple fix would be to Add-A-Leaf into the leaf spring pack. You now have a 3/1 leaf assembly with 7mm individual leaf springs. I would suggest adding a 60mm wide X 8mm thick additional leaf spring to your spring pack to increase the capacity by 480#.
