    ttora is a good one. I used to be a part of yotatech. Good info still there, but the leadership of the community is harsh. T

      t4r.org is pretty good for 4runner info.

      I like Ih8mud.... and yeah the most active areas I have seen in the short time I have been there is the FJ80/FJ60/FJ40 sections all solid front axle set ups.

        What's the consensus on the second generation Toyota Tundra?

          Maybe with the exception of the current gen tundra a full size truck is where I would be looking in the domestic realm of the big 3.

          Especially if your planing on doing any kind heavy work with it, but if your just planing on using it as a grocery getter, or taking the kids to and from soccer practice, with 3-5 trips a year to the home improvement emporium where you intend to procure 2 sheets of 1/2" ply, 4 & 1/3 2"x4"s, 1 3lb box of screws, a shitter tank repair kit, tube of glue and a can of paint ( or similar shopping list) you should be fine.

            It wouldn't be a heavy worker regularly. 3-5 trips to the dump, 3-5 trips to Home Depot, and hopefully a deer or two this fall, would be the most if hauls annually.

            Tundra's seem to hold their value well so I figured it must be a pretty good truck.

            What makes you suggest a truck from the big 3 over a Tundra?

                I would suggest the Toyota. All of the big three have their drawbacks. I would only buy an American made if I needed a Diesel.

                  Yep, if it can't tow 3 747's and haul a ton of dirt at the same time, it's not a truck according to mrsleeve.

                    If I needed a truck but for light duty, can't beat a Ranger. Talk about tried and true.

                    If I were to ditch the 4Runner or it got totalled, I would be looking at an early 70s Ford to beat smog and for the 400M.

                          very nice truck Yan, I never understood why people buy the double cable and DON'T get the long bed. Might as well just buy a 4 Runner in my opinion. The only thing that kept me from buying a double cab was I couldn't find one that was standard, I don't think it was ever offered.

                              We bought a 5.7L '08 Double Cab, TRD Tundra brand new.
                              Put 110k miles on it over 6 years - and about 60% of that was with a loaded 24' enclosed car trailer, or a twin engine powerboat on a ~34' trailer.

                              Flawless.
                              No break downs, ever.
                              Gas, Oil, filters. Done.

                              12MPG hauling at 75mph
                              15-16MPG unloaded

                              Only sold it last year to replace with another brand new Tundra.
                              We drove F250's, F350's, Chevy HD's, GMC's... etc. They all drove like a truck. If you want a to have the shit kicked out of you because it feels more manly to ride in a rough (oh, sorry, RUGGED) truck, than a Big 3 is your game. Or if you want a diesel, then yeah, Big 3.

                              If you want a truck that can do almost everything a Big 3 machine can do, but still be comfy in for 11 hour tow days, buy a Tundra.

                              For the price difference of a Tundra vs. a Tacoma, there's no real reason not to buy the Tundra.

                              Or, if you want to be 'merican, go try a new F150 V6 Ecoboost. The Limited is hands down one of the nicest Big 3 trucks I've ever been in.

                                I know people who had good luck with theirs also. One guy had the throttle stick and put it in the ditch ( um panic? Turn it off..)

                                I bought a brand new 07 dbl cab with 5.7 and trouble right from the start. I won't get into the details but I ended up having to take it to three dealers to have issues dealt with properly.
                                4 power steering high pressure switches, entire front diff, water pump, clock, transmission that randomly decides not to shift, rusty rear bumper, and more. Most was covered under warranty luckily but I was really hoping for a good truck that I could drive for 15 yrs. It was a bit disappointing.

                                Some of the tsb scare me a bit too. Like having to replace the frame because they rust so bad. Yes entire frame.
                                The air pump and associated valves are pricey.

                                I know I bought the first model year and they had bugs to work out. Some shit still ain't right. I hope that they have improved overall.

                                I think they are all flawed in their own way for so many reasons.
