    I would have been more than happy to, but when toyota was willing to take over 10k off each truck for a total of $33,000 off I had to do it. Ford would not even tak $15,000 off msrp. lol

    Plowin diesel, I love them, I had two little V6ers and they were great but would max out at like 2 tons of pulling. I do a lot of lawncare and mulching in the spring and summer and i tell you the best part about these is the turning radius... I never have to back up when going around a circle drive even with cars on either side, I can pretty much turn in half the space as a ford or dodge or other truck and thats with a 20ft trailer. I love them!!!

    I'd have to say that your the first person in this industry that I've seen that runs all jap trucks. I just could not bring myself to do it honestly, but they look good!:waving:

    I am just starting out with plowing and so no I have not lost jobs. The rest of the year I do lawncare and landscaping, mainly for residential, but looking to get into commercial, and no we have not lost any business because of our trucks. I know its just the tradition and thought of a foriegn vehicle. But actually these vehicles are 100% made in the USA now, which most people do not realize. In fact there are more parts on a tundra made in the US than in any other american truck in its class. I got them for a few reasons; 1 they last longer than US trucks, 2 they have the absolute best turning radius, 3 i priced out fords and gmc and toyota, toyota was the only one who was even willing to come down to the price i wanted. I saved over $33,000 total on these trucks from the MSRP. I love them, just wish toyota made a 3/4 ton...

    We may all be bailing out the big 3 without getting anything in return. Every April 15th, for the next 80 years.

    Double cab 8 ft bed.

    Here is mine, it out pulls my gmc hd 2500 & F 250, turning is much better also. The ford handled a load the best, then the toyota & gmc to follow.I installed firestone airbags in the rear of the tundra, just need to upgrade tires to e load range. Good luck with the TT's.

    H20-32 listen, there is no way a friggin Toyota Jap Scrap is going to out pull my diesel Superduty, anytime anywhere...

    YPLLC, I have to challenge you too about " In fact there are more parts on a tundra made in the US than in any other American truck in its class". I've been calling on the auto industry for 28 years, both Foreign and Domestic and I'm not quite sure of your experience other than what the dealer told you in order to get you to buy them, but the Ford F-150, Flagship of the truck market for decades has the lowest foreign content than any other truck in it's class, and that is a fact my friend.

    " They last longer than US trucks " I don't know what US truck you owned but this is not true either, are you talking from experience ??

    You may feel like there is a ton of US manufactured parts on those truck but the cash goes back to the homeland dude. There are two foreign auto plants that closed in the South to take the work back to Japan, they left the plants idol and the workers holding their pe*kers in their hand and no work. As soon as the economy started to take a dive in Japan the work was pulled from the US and given to their people. Now, there are talks of the plants getting a new engine but that has now been put on hold as well.


    Best of luck to ya though :)
