    Apple and Oranges- I want some fruit- Which one should I choose??

    That question (and yours) are WAY to obtuse and kinda pointless-They are different things.

    What are you going to DO with the truck?? What kind of budget?? What options and specs would you like to have??

    It's really like comparing apples to oranges. One is a full size pickup and the other by the sounds of your post you have already owned in the past is mid sized. Both trucks cater to different markets. You'll have to decide which one is best for you. Ahh fuck it, buy the Toyota.

    Right forum - Tacoma's all the way. I thought about it and was close to buying a Tundra but decided against it. Taco is cheaper on fuel, does everything I want it to and is cheaper overall: win win! :D

    I agree. I have used F-150's in doing my geological field work. They are great as full-sized pick-ups. Now I have my Tacoma, and find it more accomodating for what I do (off road in the mountains), so it is what you need. If you need a V8 and lots of room, or a V6 and still lots of room (in the Taco double cab).

    I really do not like the looks of the new Tundra, and like the look of the Taco, so I am biased.

    Remember, use your upper position brain, not the lower position brain.
