    Awesome. I duck hunt that lake a fair amount around the south end.

    Did you just level out the front of your truck?

    Curious. I have a new Tacoma, but I am not happy with the towing experience (low torque). How well does your Tundra tow? Are you happy with the power?

    You didn't ask me but, I have towed an SUV about 100 miles and tow a 6000 pound tractor every now and then and my Tundra is perfect. Tows great. You didn't say what you were towing with the Tacoma but I guarantee the Tundra would make you happy. Of course if you're talking about needing to tow more than 9k to 10k pounds, you need to be looking at 3/4 ton trucks.

    The Tundra doesn't even know the boat is back there. However when I pull my 22' enclosed trailer it definitely feels that back there. I only get like 8 mpg while pulling it too. That's why I put on the duals and CAI to help her breathe. I'm not exactly sure how the Tow/Haul button works. I've been meaning to ask someone on here about it.

    Do some research on here on what the TH button does. Very cool function that changes the towing experience.

    I used it every mile I towed with my Tundra with great results....until I hit the Colorado mountains, and it wasn't the power, it was the braking/grade braking.

    In the lower elevation, less mountainous areas, the Tundra is hard to beat.

    Hope this helps answer your questions.
