    I wish they would. I think a 3/4 ton Tundra would be very successful.

    I think Toyota is buying frames from one of the big 3 , those awsome Tundras are rotting out rapidly.

    True...I was thinking about the engines. I think it was Paul Davis racing that copied the Ram 5.7 and slapped it in a Tundra. I could have the name wrong though.

    I've been running my titan for 4 yrs now. 2 yrs plowing and love it. I actually would be interested in a 3/4 ton Titan. Just my opinion

    I doubt a V6 will be very popular. If only it was a 5.9 24 valve strait six.....Thumbs Up

    Would think weight displacement on either would be a big issue.not sure what would weigh more V6 or straight 6.I think a straight would be better

    Exactly, do you think they will be useable for snowplowing? There is barely enough excess front axle weight in the 3/4 ton diesels to carry a plow do you think there will be ANY excess capacity in a 1/2 ton?

    You can say you will ignore the weight restrictions but if no plow manufacturer makes a mount because of FVMSSA restrictions and the truck's inability to carry the extra weight you could be SOL. Particularly if (as Dodge has done with the 2013) the diesels have their own frame and/or the manufacturer (as Ford has done with the F150) prohibits mounting a plow.
