I've had a Tundra for 5yrs now and botit after I hotrodded my Avv (don't ask it's an addiction for power)...I can tell u I bot the Tundra cause its basically a 2500, slightly underpowered...it tows 10k, mph same/better, and similar payload...we'll see now how it does on longer haul with 5-6k lbs. I do 4-5k miles sledding every winter and its amazing, but that's only 2k lbs

Agreed, diesels will always get better mpg, but only 1-2 mpg max for my current driving. I wasnt actually making a statement as much as relating my experience. It costs an extra $6k at least for the engine option, fuel cost generally more or at least as much per gallon...how long will it take to break even on that trade even if it is 30% mpg improvement? (~5yrs assuming u drive 12k miles a yr and pay $4/gal using rough math) Now I haven't consistently towed 6000lbs, so you may end up right....

I would think you'd make up the extra costs for the diesel on resale. For me the fuel costs the same, as the 6.2L likes to run on premium.

you are doing really good if u get 10 mpg out of tundra towing that heavy. better divide the miles driven by gallons u pump back in for a real world # your on board mpg display might be off but anything is possible these day. i tow with diesels and run around with gassers cause they just don't have the torque to climb the roads out west. You can never justify buying a diesel from option cost to overall ownership and $4 diesel never will pen out on paper you own one cause you want to

so...what do you guys think I should be paying for 2014 X30 SS with ZFT4, J&l cans, pro & surf package, heater, fresh wash down, 6.2L, rumble seat & billet windshield?
So far new G23 Coastal loaded is ~$123k (w 450hp), or 2013 with <15hrs for $110 - both with trailer...

I finally got the chance to ride behind a G23, and the wake is phenomenal. I don't love the looks, but for that wake, I would learn to. I'm sure they'd grow on me eventually. Surf wake is also great. No listing, no worrying about packing everyone on one side of the boat, switch sides while riding... Yeah. If only I had the money!

Well...prices arent so far apart frankly...less than 10% so far, and the looks have grown on me as well as the 2800lbs of internal ballast and ability to surf both sides of wake at once! Only thing I dont like about the G is their salt boats only come with 3yr warranty vs MC 5yr. MC "feels" better built, but I just dont have enough real world experience with either to say for sure...

New 230s are slick. But ive only seen wake reviews of the new 210s.
Nick it seems you are jumping ship?
