I went throught this last summer after I blew the he'd gasket in my duramax. I ended up in a Tundra. The Crewmax SR5 TRD was $3000 CHEAPER than an F150 with less options. This took into consideration Ford's Family pricing at the time and the preferred pricing we get through my employer. I had my heart set on the F150 but bought he Toyota and have been very happy with it. I have put on over 41,000 kms since August. Towed the race car to Laguna Seca and back and numerous trips to other closer tracks.

Talk to Toyota, they moved quite a bit off of sticker for a cash deal for me.

I sold my high mile 04 GMC 2500 HD crew cab short box 4x4 for 4300 a few weeks after getting the tundra. I still need to fix the 3500 dually diesel 4x4 and it will be on he market for around $7500. I have had good luck with the 99 - 07 GMs. I have owned 3 and still have an 07 at work. The current generation GMs are crappy. We have several hundred at work and they aren't built like the previous generation - you can tell GM was broke when these were being developed.

Found this 2005 tundra with 38,000 miles Cleanest vehicle I have ever bought. It rides better and has more punch than the GMC. $13,400

that's is a better deal. It's not that all crazy as those you posted earlier.
