Get the 5.7. You will regret it in the long run. The differences in mpg and price are very, very minor. I have a '12 CM with 5.7, and that engine and transmission combination with the tow package open up the next level of towing. I'd suggest you look/ask over on Tundra Talk. There are more than a few remorseful buyers of the 4.6. It honestly just doesn't make sense.

I too have a '12 CM with a 5.7 and love it. I would also think about resell and trade in value. The 4.6 is more for a grocery wagon than a TV.

The 5.7 Litre is a much stronger engine. You will probably get better gas mileage as well. We got about 8 mpg with our 2006 4.7 Litre Tundra with our 26BH. Get about 10 mpg with our 2012 5.7 Litre Tundra with our 27 DSRL, which is 1000# heavier. Don't even think about the 4.6 Litre if you are going to tow!

Look at a Reese Dual Cam System, or an Equalizer hitch. Those are the most popular. I have a Fastaway, but I like the Reese system better.
