On the Toyota forums, when they refer to the “big three” truck manufacturers, do they even include Toyota In the big three there? 🙈

I'd actually think of Toyota's as the Jay Cutler of trucks.

Stuck around for much longer than he should have.  Had lots of potential but never lived up to it, ended up just old and washed up.

In Toyota world the big three are, Tundra Gen I, Tundra Gen II, Tundra Gen III. 

And I love the new pic.

I am waiting for Nov.-Dec. when all the factory incentives kick in.  And hopefully a few reviews on the new tranny.

I am liking 20K from the bumper; that means I can get a 6 ton mini-ex and a triple-axle flatbed.

No de-rated first gear; 100% of the torque to the wheels in first gear.

Other than maybe the grill on the Silverado it looks like GM crushed it.  I can't wait for Christmas.

No dmax upgrades could get me over the ugly grill on the chevys.

The GMC DRW 3500 Denali looks great, IMO.  But aesthetics are just personal preference.

That’s the current model. 

This is the new one.

Oops, I clicked the wrong link, good catch.  I like both of them, frankly.

I do like that they stayed with a complete bed side fender. I have  things I like and dislike on all big 3 US diesels. The biggest dislike is the JCWhitney fenders on the Ford duallys. That was the first truck to crack 6 figures and they did it with $20 bolt on fenders. I am anxious to see the new trucks in person to see what the front looks like at all angles.

The spec sheet says the SRW 3500 Crew Cab diesel can tow 20k conventional (from the rear hitch, not fifth wheel).  That is pretty stout.

Anyone got any new tid-bits on the 2020 HDs?  I can't wait until they get released into the wild; waiting on real-world news just sucks.

Boy...JC Whitney brings back memories...I bought an exhaust cutout for my 200ci 67 Rustang..promptly rusted so I would have to climb under the car to adjust it. , then bought engine rebuild parts for the $10 289ci complete motor I had bought...fortunately I didnt swap it in...knowing what I know now.  I was 17. I did completely strip the car down and bondo  it and painted with 7 coats of lacquer.  It looked like a 17yo did it..those were the days...70s..also turned the pass. Windshield squirted to the side and would always squirt pedestrians and other cars..buddies..kids at the bus stop..

Dealership called this week for me to go in and place my order. Was told there are some new color options that they will show me next Monday when I go see them.

I had to put off order until good Friday, will post as soon as I get back from the dealer. Was told today from dealer that the Chevy High Country comes standard with all towing cameras and all other options,. The only decisions are sunroof and the color options. I am on the fence between the GMC Denali and High Country, I really love our 2019 High Country 1500, so I figure I will probably be out of GMC before long.
