    Does anyone have a newer Toyota 4 runner that they use to pull the duck boat with? I was thinking about getting one for duck hunting and pulling the boat but wanted people opinions first. If so how did it do or did you have any problems

    You'll still sink and die if there's ice on the ramp

    Buddy has one. Towed my boat... v6 was a bit underpowered, especially pulling it up the boat ramp.

    15x52 ambush, 40hp yammy, steel trailer. Not terribly heavy, but dude had to floor it getting up hills, including the boat ramp.

    If you have a full size dodge assuming it's a v8 I dont know that youd be happy with the 4 runner power wise. Espeacially if your a little nervous anyways. I've got a buddy with a new Tacoma v6 pulls his 16ft bass boat that outweighs my boat by alot he gets along fine with it but says it sure wouldnt hurt it to have more power.

    Buddy of mine went from a 2010 tundra to a 2017 taco, because of gas mileage. He has regretted it. Gas mileage not much better and he says he misses the power.

    I've saw my FIL pull a 30ft pontoon with his 96 Tacoma. Same thing as a 4 runner. You just have to know how to drive, brake, and use common sense.

    Owned 1 Chevy in my life time. ONE. Never again after driving a Toyota Tundra.

    Because suv are better then trucks usually. The weight is more equally distributed . Trucks aren't usually as good on the snow and ice. We use to have a Dodge ramcharger and it was awesome for the duck hunting. It did great and my dad never had problems with it. He would go no matter how much snow or ice. He would even go when there was level 3 snow emergency

    So if he would go in a level 3 snow emergency, why won't you?
