My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If you are not towing one of these vehicles with the wheels off of the ground and if they would be an automatic transmission you will need to have a transmission fluid pump installed on the vehicle to pump fluid through the transmission while it is towed.In some cases this can cost up to $2000 to have done.
Ive always been a fan of the Tacoma over the 4runner myself.If you need info on where to try and locate one of these let me know.
Thanks Pete
