If it sounds like a diesel at idle and quiets down over about 1,400 rpm it's cam phasers.... common on those 3V 5.4Ls, and not a super complex fix.

There are TEN Ford F-series and TEN GM pickups sold for every ONE Tundra.

Do you think maybe there's a reason? Nah, couldn't be. Toyota makes the best truck which is why nobody buys them.

The Tundra wouldn't be even a consideration for me.

Sierra 6.2L 8 speed. 420 hp / 460 lb-ft. 4 mpg BETTER on the freeway than the less powerful, older-tech 5.7L 6 speed Tundra.
