If its used i'd be weary about the frames on the yota. they've had recalls and trouble with the frames rusting out. Even the new ones seem to be behind the 8 ball in the frame department. fwiw. I'm not a yota fan, but lots of people seem to like them. I hate to admit it but i have a new dodge and i like it.
Really though for all intents and purposes i dont think you can really go wrong with any of the big 5. They have all made their stuff better because of each other.
cept for chevy....they'll always have their weak front end components, and electronic problems.

A buddy has a Toy and pulls a 5th wheel trailer with it. Takes it on some pretty long trips. He says it has lots of power, pulls big hills no problem. He has had it about a year.

We have a new Dodge too and it is a great truck. It gets 21-23 MPG on the highway. It gets 16-18 pulling a 3000 lbs enclosed trailer too!! Almost 400HP.

yeah i got the 390hp hemi.... the 11mpg city driving mileage isnt overly impressive though.
I thought with the coil sprung rear it'd be a handfull while pulling but it wasnt bad with a 2500 lbs trailer.
It was the wifes doing.... her leased Dakota was gonna kill us with extra charges, and She says my old F250 is a piece of ****.
when you buy one they make the extra charges on the lease return disappear, and at $32,000 and 0% finance........ its a good deal so what do you do.

do you find it hard to keep your foot out of the oil pan too??...

You don't have to worry about the frames on the Tundra. The only bad thing is GAS MILEAGE. My friend has a 06 and he can't get past a gas station.

i have a ford expedition with the 5.4 with a 3 body lift and 35 inch tall tires and it gets 7-8 mpg and if im pulling a trailer even less. it dont get drove much any more. its not going to be a daily driver so the gas mileage is not to big of a deal.

Yeah our thing was a lease return too. We were way over the mileage limit. They couldn't get us the fairly stripped one we wanted so they sold us a loaded one for the same price.

It is very hard not to be sampling the power often!!! Thus the 11 mpg city!!

I have an 07 Crewmax, roughly 34K on it to date. I have not one complaint about it. I have had 5 tacoma's and this is my first full size that i owned but have driven the others. I get around 17/18 mpg on my daily commute which is a mix between city/highway driving. I have hauled a pallet full of stone in the bed and truck drove pretty well azz end was sagging pretty well due to the weight but still accelerated/stopped good. I have also towed my car (probably around 7K lbs total) and didn't even notice it back there. Truck accelerated very well considering the extra weight, was only a little slower then it is with nothing in the back. I would recommend the truck to anyone looking for a full size.

Just get the Ford. There's actually a reason why they outsell all others.

http://www.fordvehicles.com/2009F150/ Here's a few tests for you, Watch them and make your own decision......Maverick summed it up quite well. My neighbor and mudding partner has a 07 tundra, Not a bad truck and he can badly beat my o7 supercrew racing but, Loaded with a 7000LB trailer he cant even come close.

Hey if you are talking new truck, wait for the new F-25

If you want to buy used, buy one of the 2008-2010 F-250s getting traded in on the new 2011 F-250

Opinions definitely vary, but I and my family has always had good results with Ford trucks. As far as new goes, I have several buddies with 04 and up F-150s as well as superdutys and they love em, you can't go wrong with them.

As has been said above, theres a good reason they sell more trucks than everyone else.
