Hey all,

I am looking to buy a new 2007 Tundra. Problem is, it will need to work (towing 6K pound horse trailer) pretty much immediately. Is there a break in period on a brand new engine before one should tow with it?

I don't really trust to ask the dealer, because he will say "this baby is ready to tow, buy it now" y'know?

Thanks,

My manual says to wait till you hit 500 Miles (800 km).

Yup, 500 miles is the recommended to break in the engine and the differentials properly. Smooth acceleration and varied speeds are best. :tu:

I was in the same boat as you are. I had to tow 3 tons right away for work. Luckily I took delivery of my truck on a Sat. morning and had the whole up coming week off to get stuff done. By the time I went back to work I only had 450 miles on it, but its fine and tows without any issues.
