    Just an FYI. I recently traded in my 05 2500hd for an 08 Tundra x-tended cab. I moved over my 7.5' regular duty plow to the Tundra. Just wanted to say that i honestly believe that the Tundra drives better in the snow. We got 15" up here in Portland Maine. The auto traction control works sooo good in these Tundras that they dont slip and slide as much. And it plowed great. I am not ready to say that its a better plow truck than the 2500hd because this snow was very light and fluffy. Im willing to bet that the Chevy is better in the heavy ****. Anyway, I'm realy happy with this truck. It seems you get it all. comfort, power, quality, and speed. Again, I dont believe they can outwork a chevy, But if your a casual plower and dont do use your chevy for what its built for then the Tundra is a great all around truck. Thats my 2 cents worth....

    No plow on mine, but I couldn't ask for a vehicle to handle the snow better. Mine kicks ass in the snow.

    Can you post pictures of your Tundra with the plow mounted?

    How about some pictures of your Tundra plowing snow?

    I love the Tundras. I only wish the Taco had the 4.7 V8 like the Dakota and the GVWR to match, or that the Diesel from the HiLux mad it into the Taco!!!

    Looks like the push frame is scraping the ground... even before the plow is lifted.
    Kind of like a Chevy 1500 ... LOL!

    I think a Ready Lift 2.5" leveling kit and some oversize tires would get that push frame up where it belongs!

    Yup, the Chevy 1500's sure can't hold a plow. Those ifs front ends are the worst thing ever, plowing with one is just crazy.

    gino maybe you should move to japan and plow over there. I'm sure the guys losing their jobs in Detroit love the way that truck looks. what would be nice to see is you and your truck buried in a snow bank. please post some pics of that so we can all get a laugh. next time you start up that truck in the morning think of the guy who cant feed his family breakfast while your turning the key. you must not have any mirrors in your house
