    I agree that it's fine for me to be a bit over payload every once in a while. But this powertrain lugging 10k around would be like pulling a 3500lb trailer everywhere you go. Put all of that weight in/on the truck, you'd be well over GAWR. The axles are rated for 4k/4150 front/rear. Remember, rear is semi floating. I recall recently on the forum a guy put a hay bale in the bed of his newer Tundra and hooked up a trailer with a couple more hay bales. You know, HD truck stuff. He blew out his bearings in the rear axle.

    Lots of trucks with rigid frames give occupants that bed bounce feeling on seamed concrete highways. I haven't seen anything flop around visibly in the rear like the Tundra. To me, it confirms the numbers Toyota puts on the door jamb.

    The guy that blew his rear axle with the hay bales was hauling an epic amount of weight if I remember correctly. It wasn’t “a little” over payload

    Agreed. I wasn’t suggesting he was a little over payload. I was suggesting he was using his Tundra as an HD truck, which it is not, despite the persistent myth.

    I too like to drive at high speed over alternating speed bumps. I can honestly say that in 24 years of driving, I have never incountered anything like that.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    Ironically the 1st Gen Tundra does have a fully boxed frame.

    Apparently I wasn't reading very carefully. Who's defending open c channel frames?

    Also, while I don't disagree with you, your argument sounds a bit like this: Most of those trucks have cylinder deactivation. We need to stop defending trucks that run on all 8 cylinders all the time.

    So Toyota has something different - they get shit on. Toyota copies others - they get shit on. Only issue Toyota has had with the frames is rusting, so don't see any problem with their design.

    I think it’s the hilux 4 runner and landcruiser have box frame.
    Where those are made in japan, all American made is c channel

    deactivation is a debatable feature. I love my tundra and if it were wrecked tomorrow, id probably buy another one. However our frames are the only black eye. The frame flex causes the rear end to ride like crap. No two ways about it

    I knew Land Cruisers have boxed frames. Hopefully the new TNGA-T to be shared with the LC, Tundra, Tacoma, Hilux, 4Runner, and Sequoia will be fully boxed.

    I doubt Tacoma is getting box frame, they are never a tow vehicle, wish tundra going to get box frame to bump up the tow rating

    I beg to differ. I know a lot of local contractors running around in lariat, king ranch, Denali and Ltz. All work trucks. Maybe it’s just my area ??

    This is not brand dependent, I saw a nice army TRD Pro being used by a landscaper in Newport Coast, CA this spring. Rakes and shovels etc in the back.

    If they're driving an upper trim in my area they're owners or foreman. 99% of the workers are driving 15 year old base models

    In some places there are tax implications for different types of company vehicles. My brother’s current company truck is a single cab chevy, previous company he had a ram crew cab which apparently made it a taxable benefit. Not sure if the same in other regions but could be an incentive to buy single cab WTs. Definitely still see some big F350 crew cab plattys being used for plow trucks or boss man rides though. Might depend on if able to write off personally (ie as a small business expense that conveniently works nicely for hauling the camper) vs paying king ranch $$ for your employees to beat up.

    True. But they’re working the truck. Trailers, transfer tanks, tools etc. not just a commuter vehicle. My work truck is a $75k truck and according to the dash has towed 10k out of 13k miles towing work trailers, 55 gallons drums and loads of materials. I’ve lots of friend contractors in the area with similar. Just because it’s fancy doesn’t mean it can’t work!

    Haha, we do. We purchase Denali's for our owner, Superintendents and Project Managers. Denali's are literally about as available as a Lunar Rock Pro. Several months out on anything Denali. We buy SLT's this year just because it is available. We have about 12 Denali's/Slt now.

    1 - 2008 GMC Sierra 297k miles
    1 - 2012 1500 Denali 387k miles
    1 - 2012 1500 Denali 327k mikes
    1 - 2015 1500 Denali 197k miles
    1 - 2015 3500hd Denali 313k mikes
    1 - 2017 2500hd Denali 164k mikes
    1 - 2019 1500 Denali
    1 - 2021 Yukon Denali
    4 - 2021 GMC Sierra SLT

    1 - 2016 Ford F-150 Lariat 136k miles (Already replaced engine block, dropping off to shop tomorrow as transmission is slipping and gone)

    1 - 2019 Ford F-350 King Ranch 60k miles (Spent 1st 6 weeks of ownership at dealer. All kind of DFP Def issues, wouldn't run first 4K mikes of owning it)

    1-2019 Ford F-350 Lariat 35k miles (Death wobble like a mother trucker for whatever reason on this truck. Hit a bump on highway and your teeth are chattering.)

    2- F-150 Lariats with 3.5 and 2.7 ecoboost. Bunch of small things, but have not left anyone stranded yet.

    All trucks see 30-50k mikes per year. No towing or anything. Just driving back and forth from home, then to job sites daily.


    I am currently driving one of the new 2021 GMC Sierra's back and forth from home and the 2500 HD is currently parked. 45 miles daily. I hate to admit but it is really really nice. Pleasure to drive, gets great mileage, and even 5.3 it is very snappy. The guys that got these new this year, but we're driving the older Denali's with 6.2 swear they feel like they have more nuts to them. They are also getting about 1 MPG better than the EcoBoosts. All driving habits equal also.

    They use c channel on semis. They are also alot easier to clean and don't hold dirt and moisture like a boxed frame.

    While a beefy box frame would be my first choice, I'd take a beefy C channel over a chintzy box frame.
