    :haha:

    Small truck : Toyota, hands down. That's common knowledge.

    1/2 ton : Toyota.

    Tow rig : Big Three, depending on your preferred set of problems. I'll take a solid axle Ford, thank you.

    Older 4x4 : CHEVY.

    The new tundra is going to be pretty sweet from what i've seen, and the trd package has an option for a supercharger making crazy hp and tq numbers for a half ton

    5.5l V8 with the supercharger should produce 350 hp or more. Look for them in the 2007 tundra HD's

    I wouldnt care if it had 1000 hp, i still wouldnt want to tow with it. Have you ever seen a toyota truck frame? I flat towed a 1 ton lifted k5 for NY to VA with my full size t100, it wasnt bad but I wouldnt do it again.

    Toyota makes some pretty good stuff, my toyota truck has 145,000 miles with 0 problems. But I still rather have a GM or Ford truck, if my gf wanted a truck, Id buy her a toyota.

    Thats funny most American company's are building over seas and the Japanese company's are building plants in the US. I think one would stand a better chance of getting a retirement from Toyota.........

    :yikes: Oh my God !This thread is about a 1/4 million vehicles manufactured 5 years ago that might stall ????. What POS Cars!
    I guess its ok that GM recalled millions and millions of vehicles with faulty seat bellt mounts that break under presure.(like an accident)

    Thanks muddysub. Not that I needed anyone to agree with me to know I was right...

    Cars in general seem to be junk unless they're (quality) import.

    thanks for bringing up old news? and thatnkls that actually makes toyota look even worse in my opinion...they are basically telling you they are charging 100 or whatever dollars more for nothing..so they make more money off of you not help out detroit
