    I had a 5.4l triton and the manufacturer defects that they just passed on to the consumer really turned me off. The 2 worst were the breaking spark plugs and the exhaust manifold bolts .. Notvto mention that their sales team and pricing blows ..
    My local Toyota dealer was great and helped me buy an incredible truck IMG_5693.jpg
    So far I've only had the bed done "Line-X" but tires will be next ..

    I too was a ford guy. I had the ecoboost though. By 45k I had the rear end seal leak (which they didn't fully cover), both turbos go out 29k, and my ac relay twice. I completely understand :)
