Do you ever think about what you say or is there NO filter between your mind and your mouth?

Doubt it as a 300/6 has no mouth.

I'd like to see the 2008 SD get it if 3/4 tons and up are in it.

the 300 would eat it doing what? the tundra as far as i read has plenty of power, but heck, i seen a samurai power through things before great with its little engine, gears are a great thing.

as far as frame flex, an offroaders dream, a complaint about heavy duty trucks in offroading is that huge frame does not like to flex. great for everything except those rocky trails.

I used to like Motor Trend before, but now they're becoming just another version of Consumer Reports.

First back in 2006 they named Ridgeline as truck of the year, and now Tundra wins? What a joke.

Worse. Over many years, they have had worse COTYs. How about Vega, Pacer, Alliance (Renault) and many other total flops?

Pretty much, yeah. And I guess GM and Toyota spend most money on advertising in Motor Trend.
Last year Silverado was truck of the year, Camry was car of the year. This year Tundra is truck of the year and Cadillac CTS is car of the year. GM and Toyota.
