the only thing i can find different with the plow prep package is the toggle swith located on the dash is pre wired under you head liner so you can install a strobe light to it It would also have a beefed up front suspension, beefier alternator, possibly a beefier radiator. You would be hauling around a lot of weight on the front of your vehicle. Some mfgs. void the warranty because of the stress placed on the frame of the vehicle.

Yes, but how much you can safely tow depends on the year your Rav4 was made, the engine and whether or not it has the tow prep package. According to the web site, a 2008 Rav4 without the tow prep package can tow up to 2000 lbs. One equipped with the tow prep package can tow up to 3500 lbs. A second consideration is tongue weight, which is about 10% of the gross towing weight. For the 2008 Rav4, this would be 200 and 350 lbs, respectively. We have a 2007 Rav4 with the tow prep package, a Class II hitch and electric brakes. We use it to tow our pop-up camper that has an empty weight of 1200 lbs and a total gross weight of about 2000 lbs. The Rav4 pulls this rig without any difficulty, even in the Colorado mountains.

No, the tow prep package includes an engine oil cooler. All siennas already have a transmission cooler and 130amp alternator. You will need wiring and the actual hitch, which attaches with 6 bolts.

With the V8, you also get a trailer towing prep package and towing capacity of up to 6500 pounds

It depends how the word is used. See the sentences below. The plow is parked on a city lot. (plow = noun) If he doesn't plow the driveway, we can't leave the house. (plow = verb)

Type your answer here... Steel plow is tempered and Iron Plow is pour / casted.
