What model is her 4runner? If it is 2003 or newer with the 4.0 v6 and 5sp auto she might be fine with what she has. They tow surprisingly well. My wife had an 2008 that I would not hesitate to tow that much as long as the car had a brake box. Rember if she is going to be driving it to college that the parking places are sized for a Honda Civic. When I drove my regular cab f-350 to school i had to take up 4 parking places.

I'd let anybody tow that trailer with a newer half ton truck any day of the week. A newer (say 2013+) half ton has better brakes, engine, suspension, etc (more than likely even a higher towing capacity) than a 3/4 ton truck from the early 2000's.

Hillbilly it's a 2008 v6. Chevy that's what we thought also but it's easy to ask for opinions. Thanks everyone.
