Skip the GM-Ford-Mopar, this truck will always have a place in my driveway. Drove from NC to Cal. in 47.5 hrs, the interior comfort was phenomenal, was not tired, sore, or uncomfortable during the trip. Like the tailgate that is shock assisted, so will not slam down, but can also use one finger to push back up. Will keep this for years and replace with another!!
Sliding rail attachments, great seats, back seats comfortable and flip up for great back seat storage. Great sound, tailgate very easy to manage. Very quick to accelerate, brakes very quickly and with authority!
Put a K&N airfilter in right away, add 1.4 mpg within the first 200 miles. Now over 3 + mpg at 10K.
I was impressed with the truck's performance and handling ability from the start. No problems towing. It does bounce a little, but overall rides well and gets about 18mpg. Sheet metal on body seems awful thin.
Power of 5.7, nice handling and ride.
better paint, more convenient oil filter and radio controls
I bought the 09 Rock warrior when it first came out in 09. I love this truck! You'll hear a lot of people complain about the ride quality, but ITS A TRUCK PEOPLE, and can TOW 10000 lbs! Its gunna ride a little rough! The power is awesome, matted up to that great 6 speed! I personally like the interior, I like having big nobs and buttons for when I'm up hunting and wearing gloves. Built tough, looks tough, is tough. No regrets.
POWER, POWER, POWER! The engine alone is worth it! Big buttons for when you have gloves on. The ROCK WARRIOR comes with great tires and wheels.
The paint, although looks great is a little thin and scratches easy. The traction control is a little different, I would prefer a limited slip in back and a locker up front.
Just love the truck. Had it for a number of months now and have driven short and long distances with it. The FFV is great although you do lose a few miles to the gallon but it's still cheaper to run on. Haven't noticed any ride/performance issues with E85. Had a Dodge truck before and like the Tundra much better. Plan on buying boat and camper in the future so now I'm ready.
I have owned this truck for about 2 weeks now, I know it hasn't been long but I think I can give a review by now. Coming from an 08' Titan I can tell you the Toyota is built better. The bed is also deeper, maybe not bigger but deeper for sure. The engine and tranny are extremely smooth. The shifting is great - I can hardly feel! Unfortunately, that's the only thing that is smooth on this truck. The ride is very rough compared to the Titan. The stereo is amazing! Although the black glass looking dash has become a dust magnet.
The stereo is amazing I got the JBL w/ 10 speakers. The drivers seat is very comfortable. The double cab has loads of room. Engine is very strong!
Not crazy about the exterior design. Wish they offered a 3.73 axle, geared a little low for my taste. Paid 35k and didn't get floor mats or a bed liner!
