    Just to end the argument:
    1- This is a Tundra forum for Tundra fans, therefore we are biased towards are beasts ;-)
    2- The Tundra is down on tech compared to the other trucks, but that may be why our reliability is so high
    3- I was a total Ford fanboy before buying a Tundra (my dad was a gen. contractor so I grew up driving F-250s and E-250s, with no issues ever). However, when buying a new truck I found the Tundra "felt" like a truck where the Ford felt like a car. Also, checking various forums and Google predictive searches, the Tundra has far fewer issues than the other trucks. This is important because I keep vehicles until the run into the ground. My last one was an '05 that was totaled - otherwise I would still have it.
    4 - If you want bells and whistles, get a different truck - OR: Mod yours. There are plenty of higher quality aftermarket mods you can do to your truck to make it just the way you want it

    I loved the look of my 15 Silverado. All the gadgets were great too.
    I got tons of looks on the side of road waiting for a tow
    And I had do dads to keep me occupied. GM bought that crap back.

    lol!
    i feel like it takes a really traumatic experience to be pushed into a toyota haha for me it was a nightmare called 2007 Ford Ranger. I call my stuff junk, but that thing truly was JUNK.

    no young boy sets out and says, "when i grow up, i want to drive a toyota..." but somewhere in life, it happens.

    ummm no.
    there are these pesky things called facts, they are numerical values. and our trucks don't come out 'winning'.
    (2018 top trim)

    Tundra Towing Capacity: 10,200
    Tundra HP 381
    Tundra Payload 1,700

    F150
    Towing- 13,200
    HP 395
    payload 3,270

    i can keep going, not even mentioning features here. i try to be an owner without a blindfold.

    I’m not asking for facts. You’ve already stated all this BS. They may have more towing capacity and payload but there still going to leave you on the side of the road. The only way I’ll ever jump ship is if I need a 1 ton. I don’t know why you continue to post this crap. I already know the big 3 can handle more stuff (on paper). At least Toyota is honest about their claims for gas mileage and payload. They don’t add bull crap features because they will ruin their name of reliability as well as jack the price up. Just because a manufacturer says it can handle the payload doesn’t mean it does it well. I’m sure Toyota could do everything those other trucks do except they’re modest with their claims for safety reasons. This is what I believe.

    But in the end they can’t handle more because they’re f$&king broken. Give it a rest. Stop acting like a throbbing member.

    Oops. LMAO

    In the end ladies and gentlemen, as long as one is happy with their purchase, that’s what matters.

    I would like to point out, everyone that has posted in this thread , with the exception of myself IS currently a Tundra owner. Can’t be that upset with the quality and craftsmanship that comes out of San Antonio.

    When i was in middle school/hs i absolutely wanted a lifted 1st Gen Tacoma. That is what started my obsession. Then i got an 87 2wd toyota pickup as my first truck lol. Far from the lifted 4x4 i wanted.
