    Now Guys I know this is funning each other but to add insult to injury I am dodge driver and have been for a long time but that toy is made in america and the dodge is made in two different countrys.

    My next good size one will most likely be a toy.

    I'm with you Willard. But I'm a Ford guy. We'll all see how this new Tundra works out but it looks to be the real deal. If they are have the longevity and reliability of Toyota's little trucks I'll definatly buy one. Thanks goodness i have around five years before I have to make that decision.

    When your gonna spend the kind of jack it takes to buy a full size truck you had better make Your decision with your head and not Your heart!

    I wonder what the weight difference was and the gear ratios were.

    I like the Dodges but the big ones are MADE IN MEXICO with 3-4 dollar an hour labor. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    If I buy a truck that was made with what amounts to slave labor, it had better be priced like it was made with slave labor. Kinda like the Hundias and Kia's. Good cheap cars made with slave labor or low cost labor. Big Dodge's list in the 40s and 50K range. I can't bring myself to give a manufacture that much profit.

    Funny Movie Clip.

    Thanks.

    My Dodge is a 2001 model, 4x4 and I love it, except that ole 360 sure is thirsty, Just rolled over 60,000 original miles, and still looks like new. Im a dodge guy, Ford guy, Chevy guy Dont matter to me, but the last few years have been dodge. I love those Dakotas, but needed more truck. I really like the Toys and Nissans, but the sticker shock is too much for me. :eek:oooh:

    Exactly
    I have a Tundra Crewmax and I love it but truth be told, in a pulling match like that the first guy to smoke the tires is done. I have seen passenger cars outpull trucks in similar demonstrations. It doesn't matter how much torque or power you have if you aren't connected to the road.
    Having said that, the power and torque of my Tundra is VERY impressive..W

    i was about to say i have seen a chevy front wheel drive van ( an old one with a super small v-6) pull a ford dually backwards that had a 460 in it. The big ford just broke loose in the rear end. I do not have any problems with the Toy's. They are excellent trucks with good power. The old toys used a new concept by using smaller trucks with decent sized tires and UNDER powered them. This meant they got good traction without torquing out and getting stuck by spinning.

    Being a owner of a dodge truck like the one in the picture. I believe that the Dodge driver needs to learn how to drive. I will admit though it is not worth a darn in the mud. this is a very heavy truck. And do you think that they would show this if it was the other way around, being a Toyato dealer?

    I'd have to say that the Toyota has a limited slip rearend and the dodge full diff. Lets hook that little toy up to my F-350 powerstroke. I'd snatch um so quick he'd pass me in reverse:cool2:
