    Anyone ever plow or even drive in a Toyota Tundra pickup truck, they look good and from what I have been told they are solid trucks.

    My neighbor has one,a 2000 2wd 8ft box reg cab,it is a work truck for him,and it sure does squat down with a load of wood,I think he shouldve got a 3/4 ton american truck.It also has about 20 dents in it,since any time you even sneeze by a body panel it dents,they are paper thin.I think the drivetrain is solid,but it needs to have amore substantial body to hold up to real work,or an aftermarket flat bed.As for plowing,you'd ahve to check the front axle weight rating and call around and see if anyuone makes a plow for it.

    I drove one once, a loaner from a dealer.
    it drove really nice, comfortable, almost like a sedan.
    If memory serves the front end was really light and the rear was lighter than my 1/2 tons front end.
    If it were mine i wouldn't try a plow on that truck

    That is all they are.... I went and test drove one... I would not trust my 275lb body in that truck... It is soft. When I sat down with the dealer and talked numbers, yes the truck is cheap and the engine is of decent size and HP, but the plow weight is terrible....
