    Is anyone outther actually plowing with a Tundra ?
    I mean plowing driveways and all.

    You see I have a friend with a Dakota who is
    thinking of trading it in for a Tundra.

    It used to be that no one would plow with a Tundra.

    I was wondering if this was still the case.

    4x4 tundras would work. i used one with a 7' curtis once and it did a good job no problems at all. would need timbrens out front or it will sag alot. i have also seen a couple with meyer plows.

    American built? Or American assembled with foreign parts? Or American name built in Mexico? Or Company owned by American auto company overseas?

    What's American anymore?

    Every new vehicle sold in the US must have one posted on
    the window next to the Maroney MSRP sticker........

    It tells % of US, Canadian, Mexican, etc . parts.
    It shows where the vehicle is assembled.........
    It shows where the engine and trans. are made also.

    Example: (From memory)
    Tundra 80% US and Canadian parts content
    Assembled in Kentucky (non-union)
    Engine and trans. from japan

    Chev. Silverado 92% US and Can. parts content.
    Assembled in Indiana (union)
    Engine and trans. from USA

    Check the label before you buy to be sure where your money

    Two winters so far and I'm quite happy w/it. I haven't yet installed Timbrens but I'm planning to. I have a 7' poly Meyer on it.

    MATT.........Who fabbed up your push bar for your truck?
    Was it a piece direct from Meyers?
    A few fellas near me had to have a push bar made up for
    their Tundra, then they put on a Western plow.

    Last I knew they made plows and mounts for the tacos but not

    One of the fellas is sweating a brick because his is still under
    warranty and mr. stealer told him...NO warranty if you plow !
    The other guys truck is off warranty and he don't care !

    Check the Pictures Forum, there a photo's of the Tundra's there.

    Blizzard makes an excellent plow package for the Tundra's.

    Just 2 pennies.

    Depends on the size of the plow blizzard makes i think the 680 check their site or ask bolts indus i think it weighs 3 hundred and something pounds certaintley not heavy enough to lift the back end off the ground with some balest and maybe some timbrens.

    that's good to know. I hear Blizzard make good plows, but there aren't enough dealers where i live (Toronto Suburbs). If plow goes down in a storm, i'd be @%^&$#%#@$!

    There is only one Blizzard dealer in Toronto and one in Oshawa now. I bought the 680 for my chevy blazer from the toronto dealer this year.

    Ohio dealer

    Matt my name is Steve I am a finance mgr for a large toyota dealer here in ohio. The area is part of the famed midwest snowbelt...our 15 acre lot is plowed by two gmc trucks and my boss wants to change that. I was asked to get a couple plows put on two former parts trucks both v8 4x4. One a reg cab the other xtra cab. Any insight that anyone could give in terms what i should do as far as plows are concern would be gladly appreciated...keep in mind i am old school this internet thing is still fresh to me thanks :)

    When my Fiance and I were purchasing a new Highlander, I was talking with the salesman who owns a Tundra, and he was telling me that with the 2006 models you will be able to plow. Right now, if you were to put a plow on one with a warranty it would void it. To me, that was good to hear because I like the Tundras and would now consider getting one for me next vehicle.

    The tundra is assembled here in the states.

    If the japs ever came out with a true full size truck the "american" trucks would soon find themselves in the rear looking ahead. Problem is its a political game and good old uncle sam won't let em into the market.
