Yeah well you guys have far more diesels over there than we do unfortunately.Toyota was rumored to be coming out with a diesel Tundra but so far that seems to be just that....a rumor. The trailer is not the ONLY reason for the truck mind you but I needed more power than the 3.0 liter V6 I had. One place we go is REAL steep and the 3.0 liter V6 just would not cut it very well at all. if I had to stop I don`t think I would have been able to start away again. With this truck it`s a piece of cake. It has just over 400 ft.lbs of torque and 381 hp. Basically I needed something with more power, lots of legroom for two big teenaged boys, and able to go to the building supplies dealer and pick up what I wanted when I wanted versus waiting for them to deliver it. I also wanted 4WD because of the snow here and something that was a bit stylish. While I was standing on the lot finally rejecting the FJ Cruiser the wife was motioning me to take a look at the truck. Yup....she wanted me to buy it. That was another reason for getting it. I had her blessing 100%. She fell in love with it at first sight. Too bad it was the most expensive truck they had on their lot.In fact it was the only one on the lot without a price on it. Oh well it`s only money right?
