I say give it a try and see how you like the tow experience. There is no other choice for you, right from the beginning post you seem very biased to towing with anything other than your Tundra.

You may be interested in another topic I read this morning on this forum telling about an F150 with the new 6 cyl. pulling 9500# cross country. And the new models are going to have even MORE gross weighting. Guess I'll turn my dually in and get me a Ford Focus. Do you think I'll need a WD to pull my 9000# with it??

I would keep my dually. The jury is still out on the new engines, time will tell.

I think you will SERIOUSLY want to look into your wheel / tire combination. 22 inch lo-pros are not exactly the ideal towing set. You may have done alright on your test drive, but double check those tires' capacities. Good luck.
