Yeah, I love this truck despite the poor MPG's. No vehicle I've owned fits me better, it's like they used my body to design it.
I'm completely medium, 5' 10" around 160lbs and I feel like I'm driving a space ship. I've put 50k on this truck in two years and plan to drive it into the dirt. Unless of course they make a 3/4 ton Tundra, then I may cross over. I absolutely can't stand the smell of diesel, it's my Jaegermeister of fuels. Bad memories from New Zealand and Baveria (diesel and Jaeger respectively).

Here is a picture from the day I bought it in New Mexico. Storm was fast approaching and I had to dive 7 miles to the nearest campground directly into 30 mph headwinds. Didn't have time to adjust my wd hitch so towed it on the ball. That was fun. As an aside, if you are ever in Moriarty, NM. Just east of Albuquerque, Kay's rv is really great. She is the best vendor I have dealt with in years. Buy something from her, even if it's just a pack of poop tickets.

Thanks,
The trailer is sitting a little more proud now with the new running gear, probably gained 2". I sure do like it, more importantly, so does my wife and kids.
All the weather gave me that day was 30 mph head winds. Luckily, my first night in the new beast wasn't in a desert monsoon. That was actually my second night. Must've rained 6" in a couple hours while camping outside of Carlsbad Caverns on my way home. But I got to discover a couple window leaks and that's always better to find them while in there then months later.
