MOST of you are nuts. You can like more than one truck. I drive a 2011 Tundra Crewmax and love it. My buddy drives an F150 and I can honestly say that is is a great truck as well. As for all the bashing come on guys there's other forums for that and we can all find negatives about each truck with a quick google search. To the OP, my truck pulls great for a gas engine as well but is thirsty under load.

Cheers!

I am the OP, and I agree...

I was just giving an informational post on a trip I took thru the Mountains with an 8200+ load...
Thought it would be nice for someone considering and X80....lol

My final thought was, don't do this with Trd cold air intake and Trd Dual CatBack exhaust ..
,,,, unless you have a very loud stereo

Cheers

They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time. It's illegal in nine countries, and it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.

I originally made the point that a Tundra would tow an X80 without difficulty based upon a real life towing experience of about 2500 miles cross country, towing slightly more than the rated load, due to an unavoidable circumstance. Its performance was flawless. It could have towed 1 ton more. I measured 9.8 mpg. I've done the same trip in the past with a 2003 Duramax 2500 (several times), and felt the Tundra performance, handling, and comfort was right up there. With diesel fuel prices about 20% higher than gasoline, I felt the Tundra presented a viable alternative to diesel for towing the largest boats that Mastercraft builds/built, 300 exempted, obviously. I was totally bashed as being unsafe, uneducated, and breaking laws (all untrue, I believe). The most vocal was a basher who later boasted about loading 3000 lbs of ballast into an X1, plus persons and presumably gear (about double the USCG posted capacity limit).
I'm not criticizing any other manufacturer: I love my Duramax, and I know the new Dodge tests out well. My only recent Ford experience was a 2008 F250 5.4 that was junk. But I'm not bashing any of the brands. I continue to voice my personal experience that the Tundra does not struggle with 5 tons behind it. Its an extremely capable truck. Plus, some of us think the Tundra is attractive. Maybe some of us think the F150 is ugly and boring. That's a personal opinion. Anyone's personal opinion. Not necessarily mine.
