I like the look of the Tundra. But I love my Toyotas, all of mine have been bulletproof! If I had a choice I would pick a Toyota over a Dodge anyday.

Most of you that dislike Yodas never owned one. I do like my Dodge, it's a nice truck. I'm just more comfortable owning a Toyota.

Isn't Dodge owned by Fiat? Doesn't that make them foreign now?

The tundra was the strongest competitor to the Ram, IMHO.

It was the one I looked at the hardest vs. the Ram as well. Sure, the Tundra has been the "same" since 2007, but you're forgetting that the Ram has been the "same" since 2009. The 2013 update isn't an overhaul.

Ultimately, in the end, it was the feel of the Ram that I liked. I've owned Toyota's in the past, they've all been bulletproof - but they have all felt "thin" as if slamming a door would really hurt them. This feeling was backed up by issues of weak tailgates on the Tundra and Tacoma - I don't want to spend $40k on a weak truck.

Ummm, hate to burst your bubblegum ther bubba, you`re not all the way correct. Only the regular cab rams are built in satillo mexico, the rest of the ram trucks are made in usa. All the hemi engines are assembled in mexico. The transmissions are usa made. Yes, owned by fiat now, BUT most are built in the good ole USA.

BoyOta`s`s are built in the usa also, the engines and transmissions are not.

I`ve owned 4 toyota trucks, had enough of those with to many problems for a lifetime, thats why i`m back into a dodge ram again. Havent looked at a toyota since. Couple friends of mine recently got rid of their boyota`s and pissant`s, now own hemi ram trucks. Dunno, gotta be somethin said about that, or why would they buy a ram to start with. I`ve had small issues with both of my 2010 ram trucks, but not enough for me to ever go back to a boyota... and i would NEVER EVER buy a ford or a chevy again either.

maybe if you know why I'm driving a Dodge it would make more sense.
