Time to Upgrade to a Full Size crew cab... but WHICH ONE??
Well, the time has finally come for me to upgrade to a larger vehicle. The Tacoma just isn't practical for my line of work anymore. I spend 6+ hours a day in my vehicle, so I need something bigger and more comfortable.
Im going to keep my taco for a secondary vehicle to play around in, but need a crew cab truck for work. Ive been looking at the Tundras, Silverados, and F150s... im not much on the f150 due to lack of interior space and horsepower.
I like the way the silverado looks and the size of the bed, but it lacks interior space. The Tundra Crewmax is great on interior room, but short on bed space and it hasnt been around very long to get a good/bad long term reputation yet. Plus, i never thought i would say this, but it is actually a tad OVERPOWERED... the damn thing hauls ass even if you give it just a little bit of gas.
So, i guess what i am after is any pros or cons from owners of the crew cab silverado or the tundra crew max. Ive done the research on the statistics, but would like some personal insight from real owners... not salesman that are partial to thier product.
You know, the new Tundra D-cab is a full four doors, it's just not the same space as the c-max. You can get the bigger bed too and a longbed if that aint enough. I have an 07 Tundra reg cab and I can tell you that it is definitely a smart choice. Smooth, quiet, and POWERFUL
besides, it's a Toyota
gone to see the world...........

You dont have to get the 5.7L. I'm almost positive you can get the 4.7 in that combo still.
2002 Dcab, 33" Toyo Open Country AT's on FJ80 rims, full OME suspension, 1" body lift, TRD Exhaust, SC, and Trans cooler, ARB Bullbar, SleeOffroad sliders, future is gears, front locker and cbi Fab rear bumper
eh, i have decided that interior room is more important because I spend so much time in it. I have a low-boy, so i can always hook up to that for extra room.
found any faults to the tundra yet???
You will get the touchy throttle down. It' not that big of a deal. I'd rather have the power than not.
Do you need the extra room behind you or just around you in your imediate area? I love my D-Cab.
Almost 30K on it, aleast 5K towing 8,000lbs.
Only faults I have are the tailgate is separating at the seam, but it's very minor and the Dealership is looking into it. I also have a dash rattle/noise that I am going to have the dealership fix when it goes in for it's 30K service.
For a vehicle of it's size, power and 1st gear/axle ratio I'm very happy with its gas mileage. ~15 in the city/combined. 20 on the freeway. I have almost all of the fillups recorded so the data is pretty acurate! I didn't use the onboard MPG computer, though it's almost spot on. Ususally .2mpg off.
