Good bye F350, Hello Tundra

So, I did it, I sold the 350 and got a brand new Tundra Rock Warrior. Overall I'm happy with the trade so far. Both interior and exterior each truck has its own pros and cons, but overall I'd say that aspect was an even trade.
As far as the reliability, I am hoping to make a huge jump as I dumped over 2 grand into repairs on the f350 in the 6 months I owned it.
I am however missing the diesel, but when towing my boat the other day I was surprised at just how much power the Tundra packs, I was able to accelerate much faster than previously.

I loved the truck overall, but the reliability issue is huge to me, 2k in 6 months and being stranded 2 times is just unacceptable... I never needed a AAA membership till i owned this vehicle.
Also I don't tow anything heaver than my 6k boat, so the tundra is more than enough for that.
