    Hey guys, I'm not trying to start World War III like my last thread about Toyota, but here are some pictures in case anyone is interested. I just picked it up today:drinkup:

    This is the best truck I have ever driven. I will put it to work tommorow and post some more pics with my trailer hooked up to it.

    If you have any question, or you want pics of anything then just let me know.:weightlifter:

    The paint job is sweet up close.

    5.7 liter? Roughly the same displacement as a chevrolet 350 engine. Interesting.

    I would be interested in one if it came in diesel. but the emissions standards are going I may just stay away form new diesels because GM says that the cost of the new emissions equipment will make new diesels cost more and diesel will start getting less mpgs which I hope is not true. I really like diesels they produce an great amount of torque at a low level of rpms which makes them great pullers even at stock.
    plz EPA don’t screw with are diesels:(

    see this link which has a video about new diesels in cars

    I test drove the new 6.6 Duramax and the 6.4 PS. The 6.4 is supposed to get 10 MPG average and yes, the new emmisions crap has robbed power and fuel economy.

    Let me just put it this way, I could have drove home in anything I wanted gas or diesel 1/2 ton or 3/4 and I picked the Tundra.

    I will be the first to complain if it gives me any trouble. It is raining here right now so I am just waiting:cry:

    Toyota makes a tough truck, I have had a 4wd v6 pickup for about 8 years and at least 5 of those years it was pulling my equipment. I have upgraded to an f350 drw diesel and it is awesome but I will never bad mouth a toyota, as a matter of fact my wife may not like it but I am not going to sell mine. I want to get it back ready for a little trail riding. Good luck I am sure you will be pleased. Let us know what kind of mpg you get towing with it, I am curious.
