Why are the farmers posting in a Tundra topic. We all know theres no Tundras on the farm !!! Maybe they mistook this topic for whats new for the barn. Good luck on .... blah blah

I guess that Libby uses her Big2 p/u to plow her fields. It is too bad that she can't use the Tundra for plowin'.

Same farmer, different Edmunds username. What that had to do with the 03 Tundra, not sure. Not to mention its pretty bad when an American magazine .. CR , recommends primarily import cars over domestics in its latest used car survey. There doesn't seem to be many Tundra owners looking to switch to GM/Ford/Dodge, but there sure seems to be a lot more domestics, looking into the upcoming 03 Tundra.
BTW - Thanks to PF for pulling the E brake on the Toyota can't build trucks thread. It's just the same farmer with nothing better to do, probably because his big2 is broke down on the ranch. When Toyota gets to the top of the American market, we'll see who's lacking in truck quality.

I've seen that same character here 3 or 4 times and always claiming to be "Bob Jones".Whoever it is needs new material cuz thier one joke is getting pretty well worn.They've obviously never owned a toyota or driven a jeep trail.Just becuase Toy never made a big truck don't mean they don't make good little ones.
As for you asking him(her?) "What are you doing here?"The answer should be obvious to you.What do you do in the GM pages?I don't recall seeing you offer any constructive advice but you spend a lot of energy there.

What did a Toyota ever do to you?Just becuase you never tried to work one don't mean it can't be done.I'm not a fan of the tundra but Tacoma gets it's 190 horses to the dirt better than anything else street leagal on the market today.I sold mine a few months ago with 106k HARD miles on it and it was like new(except for a few scratches and small dents).There was ALWAYS 1000 lb in the bed and I towed a 4000lb ski boat with it 1000-1500 mi a year.

My Dad has a '47 Power Wagon that's been around the block more times than the ice cream truck,but I rebuilt the flat head 6 in it once and he did it twice.Nothing can go wrong on it cuz there aint nothin on it.The same is probably true for your '53 chevy.As a tool you've got your money's worth a long time ago ,but is it what you drive when you dress up and go dancing?Do you take it to the grocery store or drop the kids off at school?My CJ2 is the best off road vehicle I've ever driven but I don't use it for anything else and I've done a lot of work on it in the last 28 years.
Most pickups sold today are used as a family car and only worked occasionally.If you want something to work hard every day I would never recomend a toyota or ANY 1/2 ton on the market.The're ALL cars.
