The Superduty is too over-the-top butch to ignore. Tundras look stupid inside and out.

Had to go with the Tundra...I love the way it looks, although the flame spittin' Super Duty almost got my vote for that fact alone.

Tundra. I'd never buy a fullsize truck, but if I did, experience with the Tacoma would lead me to the Tundra.

Ford trucks! im going with the superduty. Even though that interior is ridiculously angled. I agree with clark the tundra looks retarded and awkward. But whats up with the F450 costing $40k?
