    I know this thread must have been made in the past, but I can't find it and don't want to grave dig an old post. With the winter weather (even though this years Winter has been weak) I wanted to see what kind of mud loving, snow jumping, deer carcass hauling, freedom loving Trucks you folks drive.


    I currently drive a 15 Tundra TRD Pro series. [​IMG]


    Pic isn't mine, but it's the exact same truck. I love it. My wallet certainly doesn't :D


    Going in I was extremely skeptical about buying a japanese truck, I've always been a ford guy since I was a kid and my dad is too, But I started becoming hooked on the Tundra. I love the look of it, the cabin is extremely comfortable and god is it reliable. I love it. It doesn't pull quite like my old F-350 but I find it better on gas, less hassle in terms of breaking and it's much quicker. For a practical every day truck (I don't do any construction or major stuff) It's perfect for me.

    2013 Raptor with a 2.9 Whipple Supercharger. I hate three things - gas, spark plugs, and the environment.

    Love the 'look' of the extended cab, but with 3 kids, I need 4 doors.

    the rear has suicide doors for access. the front seats slide pretty far forward for additional rear legroom. but it's just for me, if i had to tote a family i probably would have opted for the 4 door. hate that look so would have ended up with a soccer mom suv.

    Try and jam 3 car seats into the rear area of an extended cab. If you're 4'2", I guess it'd work, but at almost 6', my knees would be in the dash. Once my kids are grown, I'll probably go back to a extended, but then again, I'm in the city and really have no use for a F350. I'm looking at a Colorado, new Ranger, or a Tac for my next vehicle.

    Or a Mustang GT

    Mine is a 4 door and hauls all my shooting stuff to trap shoots. Will allow 1 passenger, other than that solo like you!

    Supposedly Toyota is the most "American" vehicle produced currently. The factors included materials and parts sourcing, assembly and a few other metrics. I think they edged out Ford because of Canada, for what its worth

    Silverado, 3rd, actually 4th vehicle. Kinda need one up here in NH. So nice to be able to bring home my safe on Black Friday, a ton of wood fuel bricks last weekend, throw the atv right in the bed etc. First truck in my life and I love it.

    Not mine ( retail is about 5X what I paid for my house) but it's a safe bet my daily driver will tow what ever you got around backwards all day long, and for you Prius lovin' sumbitches, if you crush them down so they'd fit under the wires and bridges, it would legally take 16 1/2 of them to the dump in one pass.

    2019 1500 Silverado LTZ Z71 double cab that I took home Tuesday. Had a 2015 Silverado 1500 LT Z71 that I traded in. Like what they did for 19 comlarcowith 16 through 18 in terms of style. It's silver (metallic paint) so it's tone changes with the light hitting it. Just need to get a bed cover and some more tie downs to install (has 12 tie downs currently, but has spots for 9 more).
    IMG_20190119_140510.jpg

    Different final gear ratio on the new truck compared with the old one. Old one could tow 6k pounds. New one is rated for 9900# (call it 10k or 5 tons). Plus came with four extra TPS' to use on a trailer. Along with the towing option additions like trailer braking and such (not in my previous truck). Lots of potential in the new one.

    Showing the dual exhaust and other changes to the back...
