    I would like to see the GVWR ratings on these trucks before passing judgement.

    I would also like to see these same trucks with an equal amount of payload... Betcha the fords rear bumper would be the closest to the ground.

    The torsional twisting on that Toyota is amazing. That alone is enough to convince me to stay away from Toyota.

    It could be that the Toyota has the stiffer suspension and the Ford is soft for the smooth ride, I agree with RiverRat, loadem, then see what they do. :grin:
