    View the build. Too much to list.
    Hopefully Toyota did a trial run of sorts to make sure this is possible. I'll be listening for the infamous broken driveshaft sound.

    What will probably happen is they will pull it, then sell it for a bunch more than its worth, and then say "this is the tundra that pulled the space shuttle!!!" then some dumb ass will buy it

    Best Diesel engines available.

    Unfortunately, it is wrapped in the worst sheetmetal available.

    Ford or GM need to get that engine out from under Cry-Sler.

    Considering the stall speed of the jet is about 50mph above the top speed limiter of the truck.....

    It was a rumor started by some idiot. Ford does not own any part of Cummins.

    2nd gen Toureg probably can't do this, because it lost its low-range transfer case.

    I've been reading that online before there was an "online" in the modern sense.

    IOTW: I've been reading that on Fidonet and the internet/UUCP since before you were born ;)



    Jeez.... Born into a world with the internet.
    Wow.
    I'm fucking old

    ARB bumper, warn 9.5 winch. carbon fiber hood. Leer top with thule racks and MOAB from thule. Electric fans, blue sea fuse block, Sony dvd Head unit, Xm tuner and HD tuner. New carpet and new racing seats. ( other half doesnt like them i think). Nwor springs and adjustable coil overs. Sky jacker rear shocks. Slot and drilled rotors. Engine Titanium ceramic coated headers, no cat, jba cat back. URD Rear Sensor Simulator. Leds all around and inside cab and HID H4 hi/lo beams.
    Best Diesel engines are CAT. just damn $$$ to work on them..

    They dont call cummings cum-a-parts for nothing.

    Give me a kitty kat and she will sing all day.

    Take it from a truck driver.

    shame cat got out of the class 8 truck business.

    Its all GM (Detroit diesel) or Cumming now.

    Rare ones are Mack ( love those engines just like the cat they will not give up) and the volvo engines which IMO are very smooth powerful engines.
