Toyota Tundra Crew Max 5.7L limited, air bags on leafs. I have owned a 1998 Chevy 3500 7.4l crew, 2001 Dodge 2500 cummins, 2002 2500HD crew dmax, 2005 Ford f350 SRW 6.0l diesel, 2009 Ford F250 5.4l (for 2 days pos!) and this. All 4WD. This is the best ALL AROUND truck I have ever owned, hands down. Tows the fountain like nothing, however the myco trailer has a lot to do with that. Getting 17 mpg unloaded and the truck is a rocket ship. I am sure people on here will flame me, but do some research first. The brakes and diffs on this truck exceed all 2500 series trucks, just amazing.

Gorgeous truck.
I always liked that body style and the white with the bright grille and wheels is beautiful. Excellent job with that. I would feel great driving that around.
Perfect rig !!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks guys. Here's what I used to tow it with! It was a real classic, but no room for anything else, now...no problem!

well it depends,,1992 2500 BBC suburban with the c6p pkg(1 ton) and other goodies..and my future project will be a 6500 series topkick with a mint 94 suburban body instead of a single cab,then the wheel wells will be molded in along with the tailgate..then it will have a standard 8' chevt dually box behind the suburban body..i have a cummins 6bt with some work done to it and dont know if im going to install a allison,or a 6 speed but i kinda had a idea for a 10 speed but think it may be over kill..im also thinking 6x6 but we will see..
