    Ordered my Tundra yesterday, hopefully have it by Aug 24th.

    I've mostly driven mid-sized cars, had a Mustang GT. I ride a Yamaha Venture touring bike.

    I work in IT at the Toyota plant in Cambridge and Woodstock Ontario where we make the Lexus RX350, Corolla, and RAV4. Been with Toyota for 28 years and counting.

    I did look at the Ford F150 before buying the Tundra. Salesman who said he drives Mustang GT's tried to push the 2.7L Ecoboost on me saying that is what he drives. Took it for a test drive and came back and said "NO". Then took the 5L F150 out. Much better and almost pulled the trigger on it until I took the Tundra for a spin.

    Hoping to learn more about the Tundra from members. I ordered the Toyota hard tonneau cover and running boards. Also added the paint protection, undercoat, and extended warranty. I know I could have gotten others for less but this way I get it with these installed. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty and work on vehicles. Just remember, I work in IT....you don't want me building your vehicle though. :)

    Had to see what else was out there before making my final decision. Certainly my employee discount helps but I know Toyota quality, how they are built, the process behind them.
