    to be honest I expected it to be ugly but it really isnt. What is up with the cab/clearence lights tho? they want them to be fricken spotlights?

    It does not look bad but I see what you mean about the SPOT LIGHTS lol. It does not look right thought some trucks should not be dually, next thing you know it Honda is going to do the same thing with the ridgeline lmao:eek:

    ya some trucks should just not be duallies. I really dont like how the tailgate is so tiny and how there is that big piece of sheetmetal betweem the tailgate and the rear lights. It just looks weird.

    I am not very impressed at all. The only photo that looks good at all is the shot from the front. All the rest look like the proportions are way out of place. That is just my opinion though.

    It's only a concept they showed at SEMA this year. Everyone knows that the Tundra's frame is prone to cracking.

    That thing looks BAD @$$. I don't like the look of any dually trucks, but the front view of that truck looks sick. i think it would look better if it were not a dually. That wide rear end doesn't look so good, but the rest is pretty i mean i think.

    Have you guys seen interior? It has like little metal eyelets put into the leather and a pattern...... And is that a short bed on a dually? I'm really not wild about it. They could give it some potential, but the concept just doesn't have it. I really don't want toyota to make a truck like that anyways. They should leave it up to the americans to make full size trucks. JMO. And that could be another whole thread lol...

    I like the cab/spotlights personally. Over all I think its a great looking truck. I'd rather have a ext cab longbed though. If it hits production like that you will see a lot of semi-pro race teams running them with GN trailers.

    I think most of you people are brainwashed into thinking toyotas ain't that good because thats what your father told you. If you took the time to ride in one, drive one, or just talk with someone whose had first hand experience with them you would be impressed. My next truck will not be another Ford, hate to tell you. American vehicles just don't go the same distance as the imports. We practically invented the word GREED. American car company's build something that lasts maybe 10 years now if you take "good care" of it, then they want you to buy another one. The imports will last double that. Hell my Toyota pickup was flat out abused by the previous two owners from what I can tell about it, Sure its rusty (what isn't around here thats 14-15yrs old, but I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country tomorrow.

    I like it but like HC plower said it is only a CONCEPT. They already said they are NOT going to produce it.

    If they did make it I would probably buy one. Power Jokes are junk, Dodges have great engines but its a dodge and I just am not a fan of the Duramax, no real reason. I would be willing to try something new. If Honda came out with a HD diesel truck I would buy one in a second, it would probably be made/assembled in the US anyway.

    I know thats the short bed but I bet the full size couldn't handle a 6' sander. Of course there going to put a massive diesel in it also just so there ad can say the ''most hp/tq in it's class.''

    Imagine a cab/chassis toyota????????
