RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

Personally I have always enjoyed the big three. However two years ago my wife and I purchased a 2019 Toyota Sienna and it has been great! What's important too is the dealership / maintenance has been great to work with. As my F350 has gotten older, and the used market is HOT I am seriously considering selling the F350 and looking into a Tundra. I don't tow anything heavy anymore, doesn't fit in my garage. Realistically for what I do if the payload numbers on a CrewMax limited are around 1700-ish I may be ordering one of these in the next year or two.

RE: 6.8 3-valve towing FW

I think it depends on where your primarily planning on towing. I tow a 7000lb Travel Trailer and on flat ground I spin around 1800rpm going down the highway, when I pull a grade going 60-65mph it will drop to about 3200rpm which is where it makes it's peak torque. I live in Alaska so the most I go from is sea level to about 2k', nothing crazy but it does fine. My last travel trailer was around 9,000lb GVWR and it towed pretty much the same. Now, with that I only put about 5,000 miles on my truck each year. So getting 7.5-9 mpg towing doesn't bug me at all, and 12mpg unloaded. My use it sits and does very short miles when not towing. If your looking to rack up some miles, and will be towing in serious mountains then I would consider a diesel. Just need to figure out your needs. Concerning the 6.2 gas engine the telephone utility I work for uses them in F350/F450's. From the guys driving them in the 6.2 they say with the 4.30 rear it pulls about the same as the 6.8 w/ 4.10 rear. So if you find a clean 6.2 w/ 4.30 I wouldn't not look at it. Some day I would like to snag a new 7.3 Gas with a 4.30 rear, but I'm like you I could afford one, but with my V10 being able to pull all the grades up here @ posted speed limit I have no reason to.

RE: Sharp reverse turn with Equl-i-zer hitch?

I'm another that has to do a 90 degree backing with about a 15% grade to get into my driveway. I always pull up straight with my house, hop out and disconnect my bar's and then jack knife it and back up my driveway. Main reason for removing the bar's is with them on the rear of my trailer would hit the driveway, without them on it gives the trailer a lot more play to move with the grade.
