    Are you sure about that? Considering the the torsional stresses that the Tundra frame has to be seeing (judging by the vids), even at slower speeds there may well be enough twisting to cause fatigue failure. The Tundra is the best riding/handler and a great truck...for the highway.

    You may be right. Assuming of course Toyota has rectified the frame rust issues they had with 95-00 Tacomas and 00-02 1st gen Tundras. Both of which were assembled in North America. Btw..have 2 Yotas in the family, and I still couldn't pull the pin on a new Tundra.
