    My F150 seats have held up FAR better than the seats in my Lexus GX460. The GX leather looks terrible and the foam is collapsing while my F150 seats look almost like new with a few small wrinkles. Both are leather and both have ~100k miles. The GX seats look terrible when I bought it at 60k and I've managed to keep them from degrading as fast with leather conditioner but they arnt good.

    There is wear and there is Toyota wear.

    Well first you learn from the million mile tundras and work from there. There is a very good YouTube video on how Toyota came to be. Let's just say that they, alone with MANY other companies are only chasing the bottom line nowadays. You might not want to hear it but , Toyota dropped the ball on this gen. Mike Sweers FUBARed the tundra. For me to get a comparably equipped tundra like mine, it about $10-11k more. No way in hell is there that much upgrade money in the new gen. So yeah if the new gen is going to cost that much more, it better be GREAT. Eventually I will buy one so I hope Toyota gets their shit together. I really don't care for any of the BIG 3. Been there, done that, not happening again.

    I honestly believe Toyota peaked with the 2.5 gen. I really wanted to like the 3rd gen I had, but I just could not.

    I think when Toyota brought out the 2nd gen(07+), they put the big 3 to shame. It was a huge improvement over the 1st gen. The 3rd gen not so much, matter of fact not even close to the 1-2 gen jump. It was a beast of a truck. Highest HP/TQ, huge diff, 4piston calipers and largest rotors, reliable AF 6 speed, etc. The big 3 had their job cut out for them. It was by all means a work truck and Toyota was proud of that, all the commercials were base on how tough it was. Now they proud themself with the Jones commercial and the capstone metrosexual commercial. They went from a bullet proof 5.7 to a V6 TT that is ridiculously over complicated. That thing has sensors for everything in that engine. To me that doesn’t scream long term reliability. And to not offer another engine, when the rest are was also a stupid move. And I know they will never sell as much as the big 3, but now I believe they sell even less. Time will tell though.

    I drove a diesel truck from 2008 until last month. There were exactly 2 short periods over 14 years when diesel was the same cost or less . There is concern the current $2 a gallon premium is here to stay for a while.

    That might be true in your area and price can move up in down quite a bit. I was in Wyoming this past Saturday and diesel was 1.00 more than just across the boarder in Colorado.
