Tow Rig Dilemma
the tahoe Z71 is currently my tow rig. I'd like for the tundra to be my new tow rig. the warden says we still need the tahoe for the third row set ( 3 kiddos still at home) so right now I don't have her blessing to move fwd with the buy. go figure, a women with some sense!
eeeeewwwwwwwww on tundras and toyota in general.
however i am jealous of your storage! must be nice to not have to fold the tower down
Bought a 2010 Tundra last fall too use as my tow rig. Best truck I've ever owned!!!!! There isn't a half ton truck on the market that compares!!!!
Just my 2 cents.
Yeah you can't beat the storage for a 100 a month. Concrete slab, electricity with lights in the interior unit. Can't complain at all.....
@ hooterville I am amazed at the ease the tundra tows my lsv. It's like the boat isn't even hooked up. Now gas mileage is another thing but tremendously smooth and all the power in the world.
100 a month? maybe when the boat is paid for i can slurge on storage! mine is like 35 a month and i have electricity and a light, but it is gravel floors and its not really sealed very good from the elements i dont think.
and c'mon guys have some national pride. buy American! and have you looked at the ford eco boost?? i bet that V6 will hang with the tundra!
Not to highjack this thread with a long truck discussion, but in doing some research a majority of the parts and assembly of the tundra is done in the US. I believe since 2007. Ford and Chevy are importing more and more parts to stay competitive, and many GM products are now built or assembled in Canada, but can still put the sticker on them saying made in America. Not sure why. Bottom line is Toyota supports many US workers and makes a great product that I found fit my family and I best.
of course the parts for the tundra mainly come from here. they dont even sell tundras in japan i dont think and they dont have v8 engines there. the tundra was pretty much designed specifically for the US market to take market share away from the big 3. but the profits from the truck still go overseas. theres not much you can buy period besides some tools where all the money stays state side. but i made a vow never to own a foreign vehicle and i did not want a dodge or chevy but i cant afford a ford :-(
That's what the thread is for hooterville, a long drawn out truck discussion. I'd like to see everyone throw a pic of their rig's in this thread. WW has a thread like that going and it's pretty cool to look at pics of everyone's rides....
Whatcha say boys, throw up some pics of you rig
Whats wrong with foreign??!! You must have never experienced German engineering. It is absolutely second to none! Unübertroffen!! That is "second to none" in German for those unfamiliar.
Tows my LSV like an absolute CHAMP! As a matter of fact, check out this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWxMestl824
So I should have better pics, but here are two I went and snapped with my camera phone just now
