I just don't buy into the outrageous tow ratings on the 1/2 ton trucks. They really don't have the payload capacity to back it up. '07 Tundra CM rated for 10,100# towing and has 1,500# of payload capacity. One tank of fuel and you're overloaded...never mind a driver or anything else. My '05 is rated for 6,500# towing and has over 1,650# of payload capacity. I'm not saying Toyota is better/worse than anyone else because they all do it. Toyota just didn't do it with the prior gen Tundra.
I also have an '03 Ram 3500 with over 180k miles pulling 12,000#-15,000# horse trailers nearly 100% of the miles. Big difference between that and any of the 1/2 ton out there.

You replied to the wrong post. Just one problem with my 06 Tundra, fixed under warranty the first week I had the truck, so far 27K miles and haven't been back since.

Just look how Toyota's bed shakes in the durability demo. I wouldn't take the truck down a dirt road.

Another toyota basher. I own a tundra 5.7 engine most powerful 1/2 ton on market fair mpg. ford might make a good truck some day if they get rid of that low power 5.4 gas hog engine. Go to the ford truck form & see if you can find all the problems ford is having. maybe vibration & lots more.You know i don't think there are any toyota owners on there bashing ford.Because they don't want the owners to feel any worse than than they already do.Hope you have good luck with your truck if you have one.

Does anyone know if the Tundra Grade truck has the same shock absorbers as the SR5 and Limited?

hi - i was hoping some of you experts could help me!! i need to buy a new (used) truck, and i wanted some opinions. first of all, it would be a daily driver (i drive about 15K to 18K/year). secondly, it needs to look nice enough for a banker to show up at a customer's office and not be embarrassed. (but i only have about $8K and won't finance.)
i'm currently looking at a 2001 tacoma, prerunner, w/ 115K miles. it appears to be in excellent condition, from original owner, asking $7,500. OR, 2003 tundra access cab, excellent from original owner, asking $8,200.
i'd like to keep the truck forever, and give it to my 10 year old son to drive when he turns 16.

I think that year tacoma is part of the frame watch, where many of those yearly 2000's tundras are now failing inspections due to frame corrosion. You might be better off with the Tundra.
As far as the "look", I think you would be sitting higher off the floor of that Tundra (remembering my pals '99 tacoma) so your pant legs might stay cleaner.
Hope that helps!

wondering why there are so few 2009s available?
