i heard good things about it. i also heard that ford might be slappin baby diesels in the 150's coming soon (had a ford motor dev. tech. come into our cigar lounge and he smoked and talked for like 2 hours) he said that toyota diesel wasn't a joke though, supposed to actually make some good numbers

The statement " Inline V6 " only proves that this guy in the video doesnt know the opened end from the boxed end of a wrench. How can it be both?

I believe he says 8 liter inline 6 on the video. I could be wrong though as my hearing sucks from my military days Toyota is scary as they are making vehicles that people are buying. The big three has to hear the footsteps.

Your right, they are. But if you notice its only the business men who use their truck to hual a bag of mulch once a year. If you get down and look at the frames and the suspension and really compare the trucks to the top three, they dont hold a candle. I have never owned a toyota truck, but I know two people that have them, and they keep complaining about how they only have 20k on them and the body panels are starting to disaline, and the paint is chipping, and the truck walks really bad with any kinda load on in because of the sagging in the frame. I have never hauled with one, but i took one look underneath the truck and really looked at how sturdy and thick the steel on the frames were and i wasn't inpressed. There is no doubt in my mind the truck is great for people who dont use their truck hard, but toyota really needs to step up and improve the frame and suspension and just overall quality of the materials they bolt to their name before i consider buying one. I think they will get their eventually, but its not yet. Maybe this heaver duty pickup will push them there. Im a ford guy through and through, but if i felt dodge, chevy or toyota build a better truck i would have no choice but take a seriouse look at it.
