    Why doesn't Toyota make anything bigger than the Tundra?

    When I'm done it will have a custom fabbed winch bumper and hopefully a Softtopper.
    I own a Tundra as well as the Tacoma. Even tho that thing is listed as 1/2 ton, there is nothing on that thing that can be considered 1/2 ton, except the pay load. Air bags in the rear and it is now heavy duty 3/4 ton. This thing pulls a 5th wheel camper with little issue.

    In my opinion Toyota listed it as a half ton truck just to increase sales. I won't argue ratings, i've towed with other manufacturer 3/4 ton gasses and the Tundra wins all around.
