Thanks 10 gauge, appreciate the insights. Those type of issues have never cropped up on the 5.7 Toyota engine for me.

Other than mpg, I've had quirky electronics in both Tundras I have owned. First one I sold at 160,000 mile or around there. Never repaired anything on it. This one is at 105,000 miles and looks and drives great. No issues other than on occasion the bluetooth weirds out for a while.

If I was to buy another Tundra I'd get the SR5 with no other packages. And immediately put in Bilstein 6112 shocks at highest setting, diff drop, new UCA up front, skid plate with oil change door, rear Bilstein 5160 shocks and a 1" coachbuilder shackles on the rear leafs. Their TRD offroad package sort of sucks.

I would give that 7.3 some time before buying.

I know of 1 of them and it was in the shop most of last year waiting on engine parts. Busted crank.

Too new and no parts available for repairs.


Good advice.

I believe they are having trouble with the transmissions as well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ford is now manufacturing the transmission that's mated to the 7.3?

Bought a brand new Tundra in 2016 for 38k...sold it for 31k almost 5 years later after putting almost 100k on it.

Towed numerous things with it, at times near its limit. It always performed. Besides oil changes and tires I never did anything to it.

The front suspension... struts cv axles brakes and especially the 4x4 operating system on the F-150’s are a joke compared to the tundras. If it’s a pavement pounder I guess it doesn’t matter but for off-road use you couldn’t give me the F-150

I'd put a F150 up against a tundra any day all day,

In terms of build quality of the undercarriage parts the Tundra is definitely heavier built than Fords and Chevys, big diffs, big brakes, larger wheel bearings and they just don't wear out as quickly. I know a guy that does front end work, he tells me he almost never works on Tundra front ends unless they have been lifted.
Yes gas mileage is not great but overall reliability is.

"I'd put a F150 up against a tundra any day all day," Guarantee you've never had a Tundra. Tried a F150 last year - could not get back into a Tundra fast enough.

Oh yes I did as a work truck ,differential replaced at 38k trans seals at 70'ish K ,brake replaced twice before 80k,and frame replaced..Tundra was the first to be released from our fleet before two years..Plus a Boilermaker friend of mine bought one for Personel use ,he only had it a couple of months we were hunting in the western mountains and the frame cracked over the front shocks Toyota welded it for the repair. YA I've e seen enough of the OVER-RATED TuRD....

You can keep your F-150. Struts busting off at the bases candy ass 4x4 actuators that bust or weaken and won’t engage. Too much power and axles snap. That all if you can keep the vacuum lines from cracking or popping off then sucking who know how much dirt through the engine. Top that off with exhaust that sits proud of the crossmember with already pitiful clearance. At roughly 1400 for a cat assembly, gets expensive real quick Maybe you’ve had rough luck with a Tundra but I run a fleet topping 114 half ton trucks now that see more honest 4x4 use in 6 months than most trucks will see in their lifetime. After 8 yrs of pushing F-150s here I see why all the wanna be cowboys roll their pants up.

I’ve had a 5.7 Tundra since 2008. 160k miles. Towed with it many times. Many hunting and other backwoods trips requiring 4wd. It is the most trouble free vehicle I have owned.

I had 2017 Trd-Pro crewmax. Put 30k on it. The issue was $8k in damages from a deer. I’m 6”6” and saw no difference in getting in the tundra to my 2500 Sierra. I traded the tundra in on a 4-runner off road and love it. It’s the easiest vehicle I’ve owned to get in and out. The windshield is not angled back like others.
