3. My f150 crew is just as big as a crew max. Absolutely untrue. The reason I went with a Tundra. I was originally going with a Sequoia, but when the wife saw the reclining back seat, we changed our minds.
4. Terrible gas mileage Like I said above, the 6.0 and 5.7 were pretty comparable. Either way, I don't pay for fuel, so I am stoked on the 381hp.
5. Ecoboost out tows and better mpgs OK
6. Ford didnt take a bailout OK
7. If you like a wide oversized 1500 pickup that gets terrible mps, the tundra is for you! Rather drive the Toyota than an F'd, but that's my opinion, just like yours on the Tundra.

See above.

You should definitely take a peek inside of a newer (09+) crew cab F150. The seats might not recline, but it is every bit as big, if not bigger, than the crew max.

+1
Ive been in them all. Ive owned a ram, silverado, and f150. F150 was by far the best of any truck ive been in. My friend has a crew max limited tundra, and my f150 back seat is about the same. My leather, and fit and finish felt a lot better than the tundra as well. My 5.0 v8 has 390 hp by the way
The new silverado might be ugly, but the "new" tundra is 1000000x uglier! Lol.

But ford warranty service SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!



With that being said, I pick up my 3 series bmw tomorrow. Im done with trucks for now.

Just throwing in my limited insight.
Look don't get me wrong, I own a Tundra, an Avalanche, and a CTSV (best BMW killer made). I've dealt with the limitations of both, and I'm considering an F250 currently (real tough choice considering after my Navigator, and Expedition I swore I'd NEVER own another Ford!). Fact is Ford seems to have the best truck right now for various reasons. I only hope their service and support is at least as good as Chev and Tundra, cause thats not how i remember it.

In my experience the service and support has been a lot like owning a boat. A good dealer makes all the difference in the world. I just traded in my chevy 2500HD for an F250. My chevy was a good truck, had some random intermittent electrical issues but overall was great. I went with the ford because I have a few friends who know trucks and have never steered me wrong. They all recommended the ford diesel if I was buying today. Luckily my ford dealer has been great, the chevy dealer was great, my local dodge dealer was not so great.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion, and in essence I'd like to agree with it. However, not a single negative thing was said regarding domestic trucks prior to your allegations that the Tundra was somehow an inferior 1/2 ton tow vehicle. I doubt anyone here would have felt the need to slam your Ford if you had been "singing (its) praises" in your own thread.

Love my 08 Tundra. It tows the trailer out from under my boat if I want it to, and it outruns the teens in their silly glasspack racers all week long. I have 130K on it and it has never seen the shop. Every button on the dash still works in the mean time, while my neighbor has put a new xmission, two speakers, and replaced the power mirror motor on the driver side of his Silverado.

This is not the case for everyone, and I'm sure at least one of you has a perfect Chevy with 600K on it and the original oil/tires/wiper blades. But this is my experience.

If we really wanted to talk towing, none of us would be driving gasoline powered trucks though. My next one will be diesel for sure.
