the Tacoma is not rated to pull that much of a load. it will be too much for the suspension and the brakes to handle, even with upgraded springs on the truck and an electric brake controller to control the trailer brakes. even on the 4.0 v6 model, the transmission can't handle it. you need a bigger truck for that much trailer. there is not a way to do it safely and not tear up your truck. sorry.

Your best bet would be to trade for a Tundra. No way to increase the tow rating that much.
