The Taco suspension is different than the Tundra. I don't think you can find a tougher off road machine than the little one.

Its got a lot to do (at least on GMs)
with GVW (gross vehicle weight) as I
was told at a few GM dealers .
GM assumes on a 1/2 xcab with the weight
of the plow and 6 passengers you will
exceed the 6400 ?lb. GVW.
But on a reg cab 1/2 GM with the weight
of plow and 3 passengers you will not
exceed the 6100? GVW.
Thats why I had to go to a 2500 LD xcab
this time ! 8600? lb GVW
They also must have the factory plow
prep. pkg too ! (even ford and mopar)
Or they will void your warranty !
But some dealers don't care and will
warranty anything as far as plowing
related breakage !
And many plow dealers and mfrs. will NOT
install plows on certian truck models !
Weird huh ?........geo...my 2 cents
BTW: please correct me on them GVW
rates if I am wrong..Quoting from
my feeble memory......LOL !
#22 of 27 Hitch mystery solved?
Jun 08, 2002 (6:36 am)
Wonder if that GVW got anything too do with that factory not offerin that hitch on that limited one now? Could that GVW be over that limit cuz of that wieght of that hitch? What say? Good luck on this one now!

I was at a party last night & a guy had put a Wolf snowplow(BJ'sWholesale) on his Tundra & I asked him if he has had any problems with Toy on warranty work & he paused & said what do you mean, do you know . He went on to say that every problem he has had they tell him it was snowplow related & Toy don't allow snowplows on their Tundra's. Even though the Wolf plow is a very little wimpy light snowplow.

with equipment that is not designed for the job, but the job is easier and the equipment lasts longer if the task and the equipment match.

shouldn't this be listed under Tundra instead of van
