Besides, it's foreign!
They are made in Indiana...

I correct myself. They were made in my home state for 9 years. Now they are made in Texas. Toyota provides many Americans with jobs and they provide consumers with a great product.

We can play symantics all day, (I stand corrected in loosely using the term "foreign" without directly implying why I referred to it as such)......who owns the company and were does the end profit return? Meanwhile, my Ram is 86% American made/owned. Not just "assembled" in the USA, Mexico or Canada. But back to the original question as to not deviate off topic and threadjack, if I run across one, I will take it up on the challenge and post my results as well. Should I find one modded like my Ram.

My RAM 1500 is 72% domestic parts and assembled in Mexico. A Tundra is 75% domestic parts and assembled in the United States of America.

Until 2 years ago Germans and German pockets. They got the profit on my truck that was increased by the low costs of Mexican labor. As of today Fiat (not American) owns 20% and the Canadian Government (not American) owns 2.5%. So Chrysler is a 77.5% American company that outsources assembly labor to Mexico (not America).

I'm actually a fan of the Tundra. If Rams were to cease to exist for some reason, I would be in a Tundra. I've driven them and they are really nice, but they don't have the rugged truck feel that my ram does and I like that feeling.

Where are you getting your information? From what I have read, I believe our numbers to be drastically different. As well, I noticed, there are different stats for a 1500's productions and assemblies, as opposed to my 2500. And you are right, for the last 2-4 years, things have shifted drastically for Dodge.

So you would rather return a profit to (100%) Japan than the US/(35%) Fiat?

Again though, a larger profit is brought home, rather than 100% abroad and you're okay with this?
You mention how Chrysler made a larger profit by hiring low cost Mexican help, then why did you buy a Dodge if you seem so partial to Toyota and it's production values?

Your truck is very different than mine. Things have changed. Currently, Dodge only makes single cab 1500s in Mexico. You'll have to be specific on what number, they are from different sources.
