Yep. I too have the one with the off roady looking tires and it works just fine.
Yes it will work just fine. I've camped on a concrete pad, grass, and gravel. No problems with the 15 inch tires on the ESP series.
Hi! I'm curious how your 4Runner is towing your Rockwood. I have an '07 4Runner v6 and looking at that same PUP. Any special mods to your 4Runner (WD hitch? Transmission cooler? Sway bars?)? Thanks so much!
No WDH. We installed a sway bar and Firestone airbags. I also replaced all 4 shocks with some Bilstien 5100's and factory springs. It tows fine but not the best in the hills. You have more HP than I do. On flat ground I still get 20MPG's too. We got some clamp on mirrors that were a necessity! No tranny cooler but the 4runners have one of the best automatic transmissions. I service my tranny often too. No sag, no sway. We will be purchasing a 2018 T4R in a year. We could use the extra 100hp boost! IMO the 4runner is the perfect rig! I have zero complaints and also think our camper is the perfect pop up for us. Would not trade it for a HW or any other. We have towed our rig about 4000 miles so far. We also use a P3 brake controller that I wired myself. Lucky you have a pigtail under the dash to hook up a brake controller.
This really helps...I was about to trade in my baby for a truck. Didn't wanna part with my 4Runner! Thanks for all the info.
4Runner isn't a bad tow rig, it's just slow compared to a full size truck.
And there isn't any sag, it's just not sitting level in that picture.
I LOVE my BAL leveler. I have arthritis, and with the BAL, and have no problems leveling by myself. Buy a pizza delivery bag to hold the BAL in when not in use. I bought my bag off e-bay, and it keeps the grease off of stuff, and keeps the rachet with the leveler.
I have a Jayco Jay Sport with 15" tires (i.e., the Baja edition) and don't have any issues getting the BAL leveler in place. Like others have mentioned, I sometimes have to put a single block under a tire to get the leveler in place but only on softer ground. It works great and saves a lot of time.
I have a pizza bag as well (read about it on the forum here) and it works well for containing the dirt/grease from the leveler. I was using the box the leveler came in for awhile but it got soaked in the rain and became unusable. In contrast to a cardboard box, the pizza bag is quite durable.
I have a BAL that i have used that is not needed anymore... wanting to sell for 40$, its posted in the classified thread as well. i can try to help with shipping, just want it to go to someone that will use it.
