I have had the truck for three years with zero problems.
thats nice to know! i think one of those is going to be a bit out of my pricerange right now, but i'll keep an eye out. we also plan to only find a tow pig that will get us by for a couple of years, then buy something nicer new. one of these tundra's will be near the top of the list!

thanks for that tip!
