If you have to trash-talk, build your own website and have a good time.
If you can't stay on topic here, just leave.
If you can't follow the rules - http://www.edmunds.com/townhall/memberagreement.html - appropriate action will be taken.
Are we clear on this?

Lack of a locking rear diff.
NO rainsense wipers
NO heated washer fluid
Fewer config options
Cheap painted plastic interior dash/panels which are already peeling and rubbing off (based on many complaints).
6 spd tranny issues.
Bed Bounce (likely due to wimpy frame design)
Thinner sheet metal (Dents when leaned against).
Crappy ext paint. (Complaints on how easy it is scratched and how thin it is are abundant).
Horrible factory remote start, which does not automatically control heat/AC and requires restarting after entry.
I am sure I missed some things, I'll update as I think of them, there are so many inferiorities, it's hard to remember them all.
Oh, did I mention it's FUGLY!!!???
Edit: I knew I forgot some, here is a biggie...
NO Auto4WD transfer case available in Tundra. GM has had this since 1988. And it is simply awesome.

It's better than talking about box sizes, interior room, safety features, gear ratios, engine power, or comparison tests.
Best to steer consumers away from such minor issues.

well i've got a '98 chevy K2500 right now but if that didnt exist i'd probably get a Dodge. Even though the ford has the best frame out there right now and is a good looking truck, with the things i do with my truck, i think i would be to worried about messin up its handsom looks, plus the Dodges have the option of a front solid axle...oh here's a little vid i found that the dodge guys might get a kick out of...

Tundra has better ground clearance, approach and departure angles. GM 1/2tons have horrible approach angles. Most CUV have better approach angles. If you're planning to do some offroading with the silverado, better memorize the part the number of that front air dam and foglights. No bluetooth connectivity on silverado. 4spd tranny issues on silverado, eventhough they had a million years to perfect this tranny, they still having failures. Even fulgier than the Tundra with that huge fugly grill. Tundra has 10.5" rear diff on 5.7L V8 and 9.5" on all other. Front and Rear sonar parking assist on Tundra, only rear parking assist on silverado. Unlike ford and nissan, which have a true fully boxed frame, silverado is only boxed to the spare tire cross-member and c-channel from there on.
