"the company is planing to swapout all the other trucks for the tundra,and i cannot wait for the day!"
Your company? You own this company?
Any company in construction would be nuts to replace 3500s with Tundras. What you going to do when you need a pallet of 12" block? Send the Tundra? Right, it may bring it back but not in one piece. We buy WT series. Stripped down models with nothing fancy. I could careless what the interior looks like as I don't drive them. But they do get the work done.
So you drive these company trucks? Why would they pay for a dressed up 1/2 ton for work? Makes no sense to me? Having sweaty, dirty, construction workers driving a $40K 1/2 ton truck. I can just see it now...lol!! Well to each their own.

This "pledge" business is pretty ridiculous. While you're at it, why not try to shake out some of the trolls, too, so we know where everyone's loyalty is. I don't care who sells what, it's obvious to any thinking person who reads these posts that we ALL have bias. We like what we like and we all have our reasons. You guys are kidding yourselves if you think you are free of any - that's the real BS story here.

LMAO!!! Gotta love those redneck hicks. I especially love how they were were wrenching underneath a truck that was being held up only by a hydraulic floor jack under the differential, no jackstands. Real brilliant!!! I guess I just don't "get it" when it comes to that hobby, could be fun though.

Ridiculous? Really? Why? Would you like your stockbroker working for the company whose stock he is touting? How about your doctor prescribing you meds you may not need, while he's getting a big fat check from the pharma company? How about your lawyer working both sides of a lawsuit, without telling you? Is that OK too?
OF COURSE we have biases, that's fine, and it's what makes the posts interesting and informative. But when someone is BEING PAID by the company whose product he/she is promoting, that's a whole different ballgame IMO. It's an entirely different dimension. It's so important, in fact, that there are LAWS against it in almost all areas of the economy. It's called "conflict of interest" and it's against the law in most areas of business.
You seem to think it's OK, but it's not OK with me, and I will question anyone's opinion who may who may be motivated by money.

I know there is no 1/2 ton which compares to the Tundra but do you really believe that it is fair to compare the new Tundra to 3/4 ton trucks?
