Yes the toyota only has five but they are of a larger diamiter and of a stronger steel. This has been gone over many times on tundra forums.

We went with the Toyota Sequioa Platinum. We got a great price on our trade as well as the Sequioa, plus 2 years of free oil changes (2 per year synthetic) air filters, tire rotations and extended roadside service.

Thanks to everyone who replied!!

Actually if you take a micrometer and measure the studs you come out with .59 instead of the .50 you get with standard studs. It was frustrating to have to buy a different socket inorder to get the lugs off.

And lets not talk about the size of the rear end, as my half ton yoda is the same size as my old mans one ton ford psd.

Hi, and what size would that be? A very popular Ford ring gear size is the famous 9" and now many Ford cars have a 8.8" ring gear. My Lincoln has a 9.75" and if I remember correctly the one ton uses a 10.25 ring gear. What size does your Toyota have?

Hi, you are right and I am shocked, but Toyota has two sizes of ring gears [9.5" and 10.5"] and Ford has two sizes of ring gears in their 3/4 & 1 ton trucks. [10.25" & 10.50"] If you do have the larger ring gear in your Toyota it does match the Ford 1 ton; And if you have the smaller one it is just slightly smaller than my 9.75" Lincoln.

I do have the 10.5 which comes with the 5.7, now lets end this pissing contest cause thats whats its looking like to me.

I have a question for you, how does your navigator tow the 25 footer? I ask because my Gf's dad plans on towing a 31' that is in the process of getting a total resto with his 04 navigator.

Hi, my Navigator does quite well towing my 25'er, and as I have said before, my Lincoln is rated to tow 8,900 lbs and my Safari is rated at 6,300 lbs. If the 31'er weighs about the same as my Safari, it should be fine. But on newer Airstreams, I wouldn't tow anything larger than a 25'er. That's my opinion, on my experience, with my setup.
