    Excellent Ride — It has awesome power, acceleration, good looks, plenty of room, comfortable, handling, tight turning, and bright lights. I bought it brand new, so far its been very good to me. Gas mileage for its kind is amazing. One thing I can do without is traction control, though the cancel button is nice for when I wanna peel out!

    Pros: Its what I am looking for in a truck

    Cons: tires

    Its Sweet! — Its great in the snow, just wish i got the 5.7 crew max. Haven't had any issues other then the radio going out on it shortly after purchase, had no hassles to get it replaced and haven't looked back since. I use it mostly for towing a boat and 5+ hr highway driving on a regular basis.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: The ride and the traction.. can't wait to put a lift kit on it!

    Cons: only a 4.7, still enough power, but a 5.7 crewmax would make me melt

    Heavy Duty Sport Truck — Before spending years of savings on a new pickup, a truck we plan on driving for the next twenty years, the wife and I invested countless hours researching, test driving and kicking tires. (Even on Sundays while dealers were closed so we could crawl under the trucks without having a sales person hovering) The research process was much more difficult than we thought it would be since we are both Chevrolet fans BUT Dodge, Ford and Toyota build such competent trucks it became very hard to let our Chevy prejudice influence our decision. What happened was everytime we looked at the Tundra it became more and more obvious who was building the best/safest truck... Toyota. So July 2007 we purchased the Tundra DoubleCab, and over time it became clear we made the correct choice, plus we never experience one second of buyers remorse. Sadly the Tundra was totaled (tornado) just short of its 1st anniversary, so the search to replace the truck renewed. The decision to replace the Tundra with a Tundra was much easier, due to the flawless performance of the 07 DoubleCab and the fact that the Tundra was still far and away the best truck offering in the half-ton category. The 08 Tundra CrewMax 4x4 with the 5.7lt, that delivers 381hp and 401ft, 6speed trans, beefy4.30 gearing and a ridiculously tight turning ratio, the Tundra still brings goose bumps and an infectious smile to my face EVERY time I drive this heavy duty sport truck. I sometimes miss the DoubleCab configuration of the Tundra, since the bed was a foot longer, the truck weighed a bit less and was a bit faster but the rear seat of the Tundra CrewMax is cavernous, and since I usually haul people more often than ATVs or sheetrock, the CrewMax was a good choice. Whether you buy the RegularCab, DoubleCab or the CrewMax I (J.D Powers, Car & Driver etc etc) promise you will LOVE the Tundra.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great gas mileage for a 3ton truck 14city 18hwy

    Cons: Uneven tire wear. Rear tires rapidly losing tread due to owners inability to control his right foot

    08 Tundra Tuff — The dealership forgot to tell me that the Tundra Tuff models don't come with keyless entry or cruise control, or intermittent wipers. Other than that, best truck I ever owned. Tows like a dream, decent gas milage on the interstate. Radio plays my Ipod, and all my buddies can pile in the back.

    Pros: stable, strong, and good looking

    Cons: no keyless entry, cruise control, or intermittent wipers

    Toyota Tundra Is The Pimp Daddy Truck — It's a bad ass truck. Tows like a champ, lots of room, very smooth ride. It's a Toyota so it's going to run forever. I can go up Parley's Canyon doing 90 with my snowmobile trailer attached lol. I like how it is built alot bigger then the older models.

    Pros: Smooth and powerfull

    Cons: Gas mileage is not great so just don't drive it in the Summer only in the Winter lol

    Best Value For A No Bs Truck — Definitely the most Heavy Duty half ton on the market. I'm still in the break in period, so i can comment on its towing or WOT performance, but throttle response is great, and passing power is good. Hopefully it will live up to the reputation build by the other toyotas. I especially like the fact that toyota lets you get the big motor and tow package independent of other option packages like fancier trims and other unneeded accessories. Overall, a good initial value, but only time will tell. They've also been cutting some pretty good deals on trucks lately, i got a great price on this one.

    Pros: Power, hopefully toyota reliability, built very much like other companies 3/4 tons

    Cons: Interior not as nice as 08 GM's and 09 fords,  some modle's exhibit bed shake on the highway

    Nice Truck — I have only owned cars and minivans and one SUV since I have started my driving career lol... I love this truck. It is my first and very fun. Toyota doesn't flood the market with vehicles so when I plan to sell there probably won't be hundreds of my truck for sale at the same time lol

    Pros: Fun, lots or room, two cars seats and still room for a full size adult between them in the back.

    Cons: small gas tank for a pickup

    Great Truck — Reclining back seats!! Who could ask for anything more? So much leg room in this truck, it is like an SUV with a bed. The navigation system w/ backup camera is very nice. I have only had it for two days no so I will have to let you know later what else is so great about this truck.

    Pros: Huge!

    Cons: Nothing, unless gas prices are an issue for you.

    Tundra Review — Out of the trucks I have owned, this is by far the best truck I have ever driven and owned!!! I love the luxury look and the power under the hood. The towing and the gas mileage is great. Has great storage capacity both inside the truck and in the bed of the truck.

    Pros: Horsepower, Handling, Look

    Cons: The sound system
