Looked at trucks tonight

Had a few minutes to kill while waiting to pick my son up from a meeting so stopped by the Chevy dealer to looksie around. First one I saw was a drop dead gorgeous burgundy High Country 2500 Dmax. Nice. Really nice. 67K on the sticker, swallow hard. Next one was 3500 dually not quite as well equipped 65K. Looked at one or two 1500`s, priced in the mid 40`s. Got back in truck made mental note to change oil tomorrow. My two 12 yr old trucks will have to do for now. I guess Dave Ramsey would be proud though.

If Toyota doesn't upgrade the suspension and frame on the 2017 Tundra then the Cummins will rob too much payload from an already low payload. Most Tundras are in the 14-1500 range for payload. Drop in a Cummins and the payload will drop to 1000-1200lbs.


Never pay MSRP anyway. You should always get at least $10,000 off.

I'd give the Tundra a couple years before I'd buy one with a new engine. There's always kinks that need to be worked out with first model production. My son's a technician at a diesel shop and says the Cummins Toyota's using is gonna have problems within 5 years. We'll see I guess.

Crabman,

What about a couple year old gently-used pre-owned? When I purchased my TV 2-1/2 years ago, it only had 23,000 miles on it, and I paid $20K less than an identically-equipped new one.

(Dave Ramsey would be proud of you, too!)

Looksie vists are the kiss of death to me. That goes for pretty much anything. I had my car in for service yesterday, and I made it a point not to wander onto the sales floor.

No good would come of it.
