We want rice! We want rice! We want rice!

Chalk up another 'Yota. They're built in Indiana, by the way, but forget the percentage of domestic products that make it up. Probably more than your average GM/Ford/Chrysler product. I could look at my window sticker if anyone needs "silenced".

However, i can see that people who pull more and more often would need a bigger truck. That's fine. But, the way Toyota does with the HP/torque they get out of their equipment is impressive. I don't want to drive around a 2500HD for a four minute trip to work, and have no room for a beater car. For those of us that only tow a few times a year and for shorter distances, it does juuuuuuuust fine.

Smile Pull Vechile

Hello, We are new to the forum. We pull our 1956 Airstream Carvanner with our 1953 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday Coupe. We really have a good time going to shows and just anywhere. We get a lot of attention. People want to look and talk about both the Airstream and the Oldsmobile

TV is a 03 Chevy HD 2500 (last year for the wet turbo) 14 MPG (13.8). I guess I can round up! In parades and such we pull with a bone stock 1955 Willys pickup w/226 Hurricane inline flat head six.

Last three trucks have been Fords. Been buying Fords since International Harvester stopped making pickups. Latest one is a diesel.

I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.
