Default Anybody still this 45 in the front range?

It was my brothers, and was gorgeous when it was done. Just curious if it's still around the area. Rhd, dual fuel, and h55 5 speed.

So I have a question about this setup, what is the most you could tow with this rig as is? I would want to be able to tow a 16' enclosed trailer loaded with remodeling tools and material. Just a guess but let's say #7500, is that doable and more importantly safe? I don't have to go 70 mph but would want to do 55 mph driving around Denver.

School me on the possibilities please

Not really safe. The wheelbase and springs might could handle the load, but you'll have zero power to pull that much weight, and the pass is no go. The brakes and steering (in excellent condition)might could handle a braked trailer, but I wouldn't trust them to safely stop that much weight on their own. To safely tow that much weight (ie: accelerate and stop well) you'll need much more than a 2H. I would say a 12HT might be doable on flat land only, but even that would suck: Output is 134 hp (100 kW) at 3500 rpm with 232 lb·ft (315 N·m) of torque at 1,800 rpm

There just really isn't a cruiser that is going to tow 7500lbs well except a 200

a 2h would be so miserable. you'd be going 25-30 everywhere in the hills.

Wes nailed it:
"The heart of the Land Cruiser’s capability is its 5.7-liter DOHC V8 engine, which produces 381 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 401 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm. Having 90-percent of peak torque available at just 2,200 rpm makes this robust V8 an outstanding tool for towing.
The Land Cruiser, which comes equipped with a standard towing package, can pull a trailer weighing up to 8,500 pounds."
