    That's funny. Around here, I'd have put it as number 2 or 3. I mean, I see 2nd Gens everywhere. Not kidding, at least 4-5 every time I commute. And probably 1-2 1st gens.

    Somebody is buying the F-Series pickups. 434,920 in 10 months, that's 1430 per day, 60 per hour - on average there is one F-Series pickup rolling off the dealer's lot every minute in the US.

    all those F-150's and Chevy's are being sold in the midwest, I bet i see 20-30 domestic pick-ups here for every one tacoma I see.

    I think Ford has worked really hard at getting their quality back up to useable standards. When I was looking at trucks, I knew I was going to get a Tacoma, but I wanted to look at the F150. I like how Ford didn't take bailout money.

    True my work vehicles are all either Ford or Chevys. I think I may have seen only a handful of Toyotas outta the bunch.

    Another way to look at it, the Tacoma is the best selling compact/midsize truck in the USA

    Most counties and states only buy Fords/Chevys.. and in the case of the cops, they're picking up the Chargers too. New NYSP pursuit vehicle, Lexus LFA.... try to outrun this, bitch. :D

    Anyway.. the "domestics" are of course counting fleet sales.. which Toyota has never been strong in. If they ever do get a foothold in fleet vehicles, the "Big 3" are certainly screwed..

    The Forrest Service, BLM and most other government agencies only buy the 'big 3' becuase of the Buy American Act.

    Keep in mind the multiple variations on the big 3. F150/F250/F350, Ram 1500, 2500 etc. Silverado 1500, 2500, etc. Some of those smaller units (ie reg cab, 2x4 Silverados are for the most part smaller than Tacos. Thats almost like combining the Taco and Tundra into 1 Category. Imagine all those F250s, 2500s out there being used for commericial use.

    One question I always like asking people who compare a truck from the big 3 to a Toyota-does Toyota offer 3,4 or 5k rebates on there trucks? Nope! A Toyota sells itself, just something to keep in mind.

    I know 3 die-hard Chevy guys that are driving Ford F-150s because of that very same reason. Two have already said that they are impressed enough with their F-150 that they are happy to have them. I think its funny every time I see them I have to ask how their Ford is doing since they all gave me hell for driving a Ford in high school.

    As for the Tacoma vs Ford for me - I chose the Tacoma because I could A) afford it, B) the dealership wanted to really make a deal, and C) I couldn't make myself pay $25k for a truck. I'm a cheap bastard - no excuses about it.
