learn to spell and before you form an opinion, go find a tundra and put it "to work" on your farm and i guarantee you that you will be surprised. just because your a conservative farmer doesn't mean you HAVE to drive an american truck. the step that tundras had made in the past 4 years when it comes to size, power, and towing, has been bigger than fords step up in the past 10 years. be flexible and just because all the rednecks are so into american automobiles, doesn't mean you'll look weird driving a nice tundy around the farm.

I can't afford a new truck. Prices are way to high for any of them. I buy well used trucks and drive them up and down the road till they don't go anymore. I will continue to buy the 99 1/2 to 03 F350 SD 7.3 L till I can't find one anymore. As for nissan and Toyota I wouldn't buy one of those if I had the money and used a 1/2 ton. Sorry but I support my fellow American workers and American companies. I know Ford's sales aren't up like everyone elses but they also don't base thier company off of small little cheap cars. Thier company is built around trucks real trucks. The ones you see in farmers fields and on the road pulling trailers. If we as a country keep buying imports where will our kids work?

I would have kept buying American trucks but i switched to the tundra because it's more reliable. Tundras can do anything a F-150, a silverado, or a ram can do, except with more horsepower and torque. Tundras can tow 10,000 pounds like its nothing, and you can drop 1,600 pounds of anything in the bed and the truck will still have the get up and go like it does if it were dry.

No it's not a coincidence. Go to any dealership that sells trucks and there will be trucks in the service center.
Ford, chevy, dodge, Toyota. No truck has a 0% defect rate.

Without question there is going to be mechanical failures with any Truck. I have had GM and Ford pick pkups as well as Dodge cars in the past. The difference is, should it be it a major transmission problems( which every one of my Dodges had) or a simple burnt out light bulb, I was properly serviced by Toyota the issue was fixed. Unlike my Ford and GM where I always felt gouged or over charged often the problem not being fixed properly. I am happy to say I have had three new Toyota trucks including the new Tundra with no problems what so ever and a resale at trade that only Ford,Dodge, and Chev could not even come close to. Sure the big three cost a little less to purchase however the trusting consumer takes a drastic loss at trade in.

Tundras suck. The box frames on a tundra snaps easily because they aren't built for heavy towing. they get horrible miles to the gallon and are only driven by idiots who think that it's a more reliable truck. Well it's not because once you kill the frame trying to tow what it's not or ever should try and tow and makes your truck look like some one treated it like silly puddy bending it out of shape. This is what it comes down to if you want a great street truck with good speed then you need to buy a dodge ram hemi. If you want a truck to tow small loads then you need to get a gmc. If you want a heavy duty hauling truck that gets the job done then get a ford. If you want a piece of crap not meant to be driven and only tow your trash to the end of the driveway then get a tundra and other foreign trucks. They don't farm in other country's like we do so don't complain when you buy a foreign truck meant for just driving plants in and nothing else.
