    Well, after fighting with myself I have came to the conclusion I need a bigger truck. As much as I love my Taco, a full size is coming my way. Im really not sure if I will stick with Toyota or not. Also looking at an F150.

    Stuff that makes it easier to run over other stuff.
    If I ever needed to go full-size, it'd be a Cummins Ram with a 6-speed. Good luck!

    Tundra is made in the USA. It's probably more domestic than your big 3 actually.

    I have been loyal to Toyota since I got my license but theres just something I really dont like the Tundra.... Anywho. I looked at the Sierra, ( I think the styling is better than the Silverado) but I am leaning heavily towards the F150 with the ECOBoost.

    I'm not sure what we'll do without you. All 23 posts really made my Tw experience worth it, I'm going to miss you.

    Bye.

    Don't be a dick virginiabound.

    If you could wait a year or 2, a new tundra should be releasing. But if you need it now, go with a 1500 GMC.

    Mehh...

    Tough call on "domestic" trucks.

    For gassers, I'd agree that Ford is the best way to go.
    For Diesel, it's a shame. The Cummins is the best available consumer-grade oil burner available.
    It just happens to be wrapped in the biggest piece of shit sheetmetal available.

    So that leaves the mediocre-but-better-than-Dodge Silverado, stuffed with a mediocre-but-better-than-Powerjoke Duramax.

    But I really do like the Allison trans... just needs a couple of minor reinforcements to hold serious power.

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    I thought it was funny.

    Later OP, good luck with the decision, if Tundra is out of the question, Ford would be the way to go.

    I worked at Nissan for a while, and the Titan is a beautiful truck! I've driven most of the full size trucks because of work, fords feel old after a few years, as in we'd get a 3 or 4 year old ford, and it felt like a 10 yr old tacoma, or worse...

    I find the interior of the Tundra ridiculously lame and boring (sorry tundra owners, just my opinion) but the Titan is gorgeous inside, it can tow and haul as much as most people need (9300 lbs tow capacity) and is a much ore comfortable, nice truck than the domestics I have found.

    Yes, it get's terrible gas mileage, but the new Titan releases in a year, which will have a vast improvement in fuel economy, and I'm sure great new styling.

    It would definitely be a contender were I to be buying a dull size truck
