It is almost easier and quicker to pull the motor. B the time you get to where you can change it the motor is almost ready to come out.

The tundra's mileage sucks at best. I didn't like that part at all, but a well built truck none the less. My Sequoia wouldn't do better than 13 on the hwy. It has the 4.6, but the 5.7 does 16-18 on...

I am not accusing you of that at all Gary. Just making the point that possibly that is where CR's write up is going into an area I don't see as accurate. As far as the Tundra not being in the same...

The ride is a little jittery when compared to 1/2 tons, but like I said it is set up more like a 3/4 ton. I have a feeling the price is what keeps it from "making the inroads" as they said. Also...

I saw Cash at the locksmith today. He said he got into a wreck and it tore up his Ranger. Sad to hear. The truck was in decent shape. He said he is sourcing some parts and about to rebuild it.

I ordered up all of Whitey's rear end parts. I was going to go with Motive Gear for the R&P, but found a sweet deal on a Dana R&P. I did go with Motive's master rebuild kit. I liked the option of...

I understand we are on FTE. However, I don't see the point in buying a new F150 when you could buy a Toyota Tundra. Their half ton is built with 3/4 ton parts. Such as the 10.5" ring...
