I just bought 2004 titan xe, I have a 24 foot hilo trailer, When I bought the truck I thought it would pull 9100 lbs. I found out it would only pull 6000 lbs. My hilo weighs 3800 lbs empty 4800 fully loaded. Am I in trouble?
If so what can I do to beef the truck up? Thanks

It should pull your trailer with no problem.

The most significant difference between BT and Non-BT is the lower gears, which adds to the added towing capacity (9400lbs). In answer to the first post, the truck should be fine with those weights.


Towing guide is here also, in case you don't have it:

If you're only towing about 4800-5000 lbs, then no worrys. Make sure you tow in 4th gear(stay out of 5th which is OD) and don't wait for the trans to downshift itself on grades & hills, do it youself ahead of time.
Get a good brake controller, the Prodigy is favored here(I own one and am very happy) but there are others...

From what I read, it was only the tires that limited XE Non BT to 6500 lbs vice 7400 for the SE/LE.

I plan on doing the same upgrade eventually. :hat:

You should be fine. My trailer is about 4900 dry and I tow it with my 06 SE regularly in the mountains of Colorado with 800-1000lbs in it and 4 bikes in the bed. No problems. I'm not sure I'd want a heck of lot more, but I can do the speed I want most of the time.
