Find a 1500 Z71 extended cab with the 5.3.
It will do all you need. And do it very well.

Get on Toyota US web site & build a Tundra with their program. Or see if you can, & get all you want. I've been kicked up to a crew cab from an extended, or to a $4000 package upgrade just for a color change. Forget about getting wheel options other than what is in a particular package.


And... the word on the street in these parts is that the Yota plant just up the road is building nothing but the the highest end, most heavily optioned units they can. Folks are buying all they can make so they've decided to build only the highest profit units.

I never owned one, but my buddies Tundra falls on it's face when pulling an ATV trailer. My wife's Jeep will out run it with the same weight and a V6.

The Tundra may have the edge on ugly, but the Silverodriquez ain't far behind.

Buying a truck for the color is like buying a horse because you like the color, but it is not broke to ride or work. Doesn't look like you need a 3/4 T, go with the Silverado. If you are considering a 1/2 T any of the big three. The Tundra is automobile with a truck bed . Looks like you could go with a Tacoma

Options can vary by region too.

Do a search on cars.com for the whole nation, don't limit yourself to just a few hundred miles from home.

Not a Tundra fan but my dad has one. 5.7 and something like a 4.33 gear. Pulling SOB it is.

Hauling reminds me of older domestic 3/4 tons. Definitely heavier springs than domestic 1/2 ton pickups.

Better wait a while. New tundra having some recall issues. Probably just what you see with 1st gen vehicle reboot. Give it a year or two to sort out.

The old 5.7 Was about the toughest engine around. But everybody's wanting a sports car these days.

If I’m paying $60 grand plus for a truck, it’ll be what I want.
So am thinking of trying a Tundra, hopefully they’ll make what I want.
Those that have had silverados and Tundras, and recommendations, or comments.
Thanks

Anybodies experience with the previous generation Tundra is totally irrelevant to this discussion.

Me being a 'Yota guy.....

Wouldn't dream of replacing my ole Silverado with a new Tundra

The '02 pampered garage queen...2500 HD crew now with 137K miles

Considered the Duramax/Allison when I ordered it...was $7K more at the time

So I stuck with the 6.0L gasser...had no real reason to have the Duramax

Been a good dependable truck...Never pulled anything really heavy

4 place loaded horse trailer....this Lexus from PHX AZ last year......all uphill ):
