I bought a used 2007 Toyota tundra with 38k miles on it in 2014. She now has 180k rough miles on her. Been a real piece of garbage for me. List of things I've had to fix or replace on that truck are as follows:

• all 4 rotors at 150k miles





My next truck won't be a tundra due to the fact I can't get a crew and 6.5ft bed. It'll likely be an f150 xlt ecoboost.

Good for you.
It's all how you use it.
My 2006 Tacoma was completely outclassed by basic hunting and fishing needs.
Needed massive upgrades to simply be competent.
Based on the videos I posted, I would not want to drive a Tundra on the washboard or basalt roads I use for hunting and fishing, especially after 100k miles on it.
BTW, I have a 6.5' F150 SC.
Love the thing other than parking is a pain.
Full disclosure- I have added some modest suspension and 33" Falken Wildpeak tires.
I do LOTS of research before I add any mods.
You're welcome to take a look at it.
PM me if you're curious.

All how you use it? You implying mine is a freeway queen?

I dont know if you've noticed yet thinkingman but nobody cares what you think of toyota. You are sooooo over the top you've completely lost any credibility on the subject of vehicles. Tone it down a bit and somebody down the road may take you seriously on here. And I'm far from a Toyota leg humper. Ive owned a dozen trucks over the years and only one has been a Toyota. Its also been the only trouble free vehicle I've ever owned soooo  :dunno:

Sorry, Karl.
You were not my intended target.
I hope the Toyota Leg Humpers don't summarily dismiss the information I post.
That would be like liberals voting Biden no matter what the facts are.

You've done a pretty good job of ensuring that.
This thread is making me think I should sell my 2012 F150 with 110k miles on it, ride my bike for the next 6 months, and buy a new truck!

Bout time you join the Ford family.
ha! I had two fords prior to the tundra. Both 7.3's. Great trucks. Id be getting another tundra but like I said, gotta have the crew cab and a 6.5ft bed and they don't offer it. Their crew max is so over the top huge. Chop a foot out of that cab and put it into a longer bed for God's sakes.

You shoot a rifle with a muzzle brake and you've owned 2 7.3's. It's a miracle you still have your hearing.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
