I tend to agree with the sentiment of the video, just because it can doesn't mean it should. I for one have no need to tow something so large and if I did my butt would be in a full size.

I thought it did pretty well considering the route taken was so high in altitude.

I went over Stevens pass with 4300lbs and my temp was 220F. I wonder what this was at?

I guess if it can handle this it shouldn't be an issue towing my rig which tops out right around 2000lbs. Now I just need to get off my butt and finish fixing up the boat before the season is upon us!

I drove from Connecticut to California (i went to Yellowstone first so i drove through the black hills and all the mountains surrounding Yellowstone too) in my 2010 Pro-4x hauling an Audi A4 (curb weight 342 on a full size auto transport from U-haul. I would say i was easily hauling over 4000lbs. Then i had probably 600lbs in the bed. I wish i had a WD hitch and a better car trailer so i could position the car slightly more over the wheels. The way it was set up i had maybe 2.5-3 inches before the bump stops would have been touching. However, it was manageable. I could get up to 60mph without getting whipped off the road but too much more than that felt a little dangerous. On a 5-6% grade i was able to down shift to keep a decent speed but it did get a little dicey sometimes with any more of a grade. Hill climbs could get tedious but as long as you are patient and don't try to push it, it's not that bad. If i was going to haul like that more often i would get a full size truck but i don't so the frontier was a champ! Been driving it for about 4 months now after the move and still have no issues with the truck from hauling all that way. The brakes were at about 50% when i left CT and i still have not had to replace them. Overall i am very happy with how my truck performed hauling that large of a load.

**edit** the curb weight of the Audi is 3428lbs but I'm going to leave it the way it showed up in my initial post because i think that's funny.
