I was shocked at just how much room there is in the back seat of these trucks. There is more legroom than my '07 Tahoe had in it.

I can't wait to get the boat behind this thing!

Very Nice!

The back seats are HUGE! Your passengers will love you! Like I said in the PM, it pulls like a tank. Congrats and enjoy!

They almost look like twins!

id like to point out that there are many accidents with injuries that were caused by this problem. (including one in my area involving a police officer) it is a CONFIRMED defect that Toyota had evidence of, but chose to launch the vehicle anyway.

under those conditions the FBI will look into ANY and ALL companies involved.

as for the supplier, i work for an automotive supplier (unrelated to the one in question, or those parts) and i get a DAILY email about another vehicle under investigation for this defect (including FORDS) and recalls for other vehicles. there is just not as much coverage because there have not been accidents involving other vehicles yet.

i would also like to point out that Toyota buyers don't buy domestic for a reason and will more than likely go to VW or Honda before considering a GM. so if this was a gov conspiracy they would have been found out by now cause they did not think any of it through. LOL

if you do drive a vehicle affected by the recall and have not taken it in yet make sure that you can shift to neutral easily if you run into an issue. at least one of the accidents was caused because the driver was unable to shift to neutral because of an unusual shift pattern in the vehicle and could not shut the vehicle off because of a push button start system.

end rant, sorry

EDIT: this just hit my inbox as well. the feds aren't just scrutinizing toyota.

and this is not really a danger anyway, who hasn't driven a vehicle with broken power steering? Ive driven two in my life and im still young.

That's a fine looking pickup Duckguy. Looks like I need to inspire you to move to a warmer climate.
