    which double cab pickup can tow 3.5 ton??

     I have noticed that most of the double cab pickups can't tow 3.5 ton legally. Is there any which can tow 3.5 ton?

    I think a Ford Ranger can tow over 3 tonnes, Isuzu rodeo is 3 tonnes, hope this helps.

    I think the Landy double cab is all there is. You can try a Jeep Wrangler, both swb and lwb pull 3.5 ton and you can have auto too but no pickup version. Border Cars does good deals on them. Ford Ranger tows 3 ton I think if a loadbed is essential.

    As far as I know Land Rover is the only one that can tow 3.5t......surely there's a gap in the market for something that can tow a bit more ! What about the new Iveco 4x4 ? Although it looks like it could pull 5t I think even that's only allowed to pull 3.5t.

    Whilst we're on the subject I think all trailers should have an annual test (for safety's sake) and air brakes. Yes I know it'll cost a lot, but I've had enough lucky escapes to know that something need's to be done.

    MARK MY WORDS, one day soon a 4x4 with a stocktrailer WILL cause a major accident and then they will come down on us like a ton of bricks !

    By the way, hands up, I'm probably one of the worst culprits for over-loading etc......just thought I should own up before someone else points it out.

    Well i hope it does not come to having trailers or tractors needing MOT's, as most of us who use trailers  hopefully often check the brakes and bearings. I must own 7 or more trailers which can be pulled by a pickup truck, so just think about the cost of that!

    For a double cab only the Landrover can. Would look at Landcrusier, Nissan Patrol and Discovery (or left hand drive ford F250!) for anything that is capable of it. Also try searching for UK Tow, there is a web site that will give you all cars and trucks and what they can pull.

    i send in my livestock trailer for service every 2 years, as the trailer is early part 1991,

    so as you drive down the motorway, in the back off your mind the trailer is in good shape

    So do I, but it's 7 miles from our yard to the hill, which includes 3 miles forestry road and also 6 cattle grids and 2 streams to cross, so as you can imagine our trailer gets a tough time. Then there's all the trips to market etc. All in all, I reckon our trailer does about 15,000 miles per annum which is why I think an annual MOT would be a good thing !
