i owned a tacoma about 20 years ago and it was a solid truck. I bought a 2016 f150 but considered a tundra when i bought the ford. i could not justify the same truck for more money and at least 3 mpg less than the ford. i typically trade mine in before 100k so longevity of the "toyota" name did not matter to me.

Most people are going to argue for whatever brand they are loyal to. I've had and F-150, Sierra, and Silverado. I bought all of them new and put 90,000 miles on each and then they all started having major issues. I bought a Tundra one year ago and I couldn't be happier. The only regret I have is that I didn't buy one sooner. To each, their own. I'll take a Tundra any old day of the week.

Don’t they use a 10.75 on the tundras?


That's the diameter of the ring gear, but it's attached to thinner axles than the 9.75" Sterling. Thinner webbing due to steel stampings too.

The hemi in my Ram will pull circles around a Tundra, get better gas mileage and feels like a Caddie in ride comparison. Reliability I can’t speak too yet. Just moved away from Chevy after 30 years in a trial run

Only thing I've ever heard about the Tundras was the secondary air pumps going bad and making the trucks go into limp mode. $2300 fix from the dealership


Yes they do go out, and either have to be replaced costing the aforementioned $2300, or you can buy a bypass kit for it that cost about $400.

I have a Duramax if you'd like to hook em up and be embarrassed.

A tundra is NOTHING like a 3/4 diesel. Fuel mileage is horrible.

I have an 18 Tacoma and plan on putting 300k miles on it before I get a new vehicle. Currently at 31k miles and almost half paid off

I had a ram before my tacoma. Not once has someone from the dodge dealership called me at anytime asking to trade my Ram in or buy it back. Three different Toyota dealers call me monthly asking if I'm interested in buying back my Tacoma. Is this common for all vehicles?

It's a common sales tactic for all make/models. We get flyers in the mail often from Honda wanting to buy back the wife's CRV.

Ive always felt that:

Rams had the power
Ford had the brakes
Chevy/GMC had the styling/interior
Toyota had the longevity

Dont know if its true today, but thats what it always seems like.

That’s naive reasoning at best. Sure they do, just shows the salesmen at Toyota have more hussle. Go buy a new one they’ll be glad to take the old one back. Lol

I asked for my mind to be changed. I wasn't comparing a gas burner for a diesel, was talking about the chassis, differentials, suspension and motor power. I will say I have been swayed by all of your contributions. I have been a part of many many frame swaps on trucks at body shops and the Tundra is the beefiest frames I've even changed out onna truck. The rear diff is also the largest ive ever changed out on a 1/2 ton. My opinion on towing is just that. My own opinion. I'm a life long Ford fan but do drive a Sierra now since I bought it for so cheap. It's been ok. Had to put 3 motors in it and it's an 08 model.
