    Cut off mud flaps, that's it.
    I have been going back and forth on what truck to buy. Ram, Chevy mostly. Recently started looking into Tundra. I joined to gets some pointers. Really like the T with the level kit.

    Welcome to the site. I cant speak for other trucks but I had owned GM ever since my first truck and traded a 2011 Silverado for my 2015 Tundra, and I can tell you I haven't looked back one time. This Tundra is bad ass! Very glad I made the change.

    Tundra is more American made than Ram and Chevy. I am very very happy with mine, little jellouse of the 2014+ tundra interior though. After my Tacoma I didn't consider any other trucks besides the Tundra though.

    Welcome. The 4.30 comes with tow/haul option package. At least it did on my 07.

    Can't beat Tundra reliability. My local mechanic complains that I see him only for inspection, haha. Go with Tundra Pro and don't look back.

    It can be a hard decision when you are thinking about spending $40 k. Sort of makes me sick thinking about it. Wondering would Ford be a better choice...Dodge. I do have experience with GMC and i have sunk way too much money in that truck in repairs. My dad is a Ford guy. Every 6 or 8 years when his Fords start having big problems, he goes out and buys new. It is like Fords are disposable. Guy i worked with had to have a less than 5 year old f150 completely rebuilt due to engine failure. My bro is a Chevy guy. Oh he says they are the best LOL so when his Chevy needed major repairs he gets rid of it. LOL
    I have always driven Toyota pickups, Tacoma. Never a major problem and not much small problems either! So i really believe in Toyota quality and reliability and durability. Plus Toyota has the best resale value does it not?

    I was having dinner with my family and my dad asks if i found a truck yet. I say yes i think i am getting a Toyota Tundra...He just smirks and sort of shakes his head in dissapointment and looks away as if in disgust! A while back i looked at ford and told him i was thinking ford and his eyes lit up and looked really happy. What a close minded old man! All he does is sits in front of the tv and watches news and politics in his underware!

    I am ordering a 2016 Tundra 4x4 double cab SR5 upgrade long bed. Dont you guys think i am making the right choice?

    To me Ford's pricing seems high compared to Toyota. I thought the Tundra was more American than Ford anyway.
