Nothing wrong with liking the look of a truck as long as it serves a function. 37’s on a pick up truck is not like a coffee can exhaust on a Honda.I get a chuckle out of you guys who worry about what a vehicle looks like. On a scale of 1 to 10, for me looks would come in at at least 11. Functionality should always be #1 and reliability #2, far as I'm concerned.
I care about what a vehicle looks like, but reliability and functionality are what I want. Reliability is the reason I want out of my F150. The last thing I want to do is what @beef tits said and buy a brand new truck with unproven motor, let alone another twin turbo v6.I get a chuckle out of you guys who worry about what a vehicle looks like.

A bigger tire will have far better small bump compliance than a small tire, assuming the wheels are the same, or about the same size. Fair point about MPG, and it can vary depending on the vehicle. My JKU hated my wide 35s, and I should have never put them on, they were the absolute wrong tire for the vehicle but after having cheap skinny tires I wanted to try giving the big thick tire a shot, not the right call for the vehicle.there are trade offs.... the bigger the tire the rougher the ride, the worse the gas mileage, the shorter the range between gas stations, the more unstable the highway driving thru rain slush, snow..... looking right is hardly a reason to pick a tire…
Your range went up because the engine on those jeeps isn't the best for pushing heavy tires, so I'm not surprised you saw an increase, but 5mph seems like a bit of a stretch to me, are you sure that is accurate?so on range, I went from 33/10.50R15s to 31/7.50R16s and gained 5mpg thats a 95 mile range increase with the stock 19 gallon tank..... an extra 100 miles between fills is huge and I'll never need a jerry can. I always had a bit of range anxiety before, not now..... and ride is 100% better, I no longer steer around cracks or potholes, they barely get noticed. [clipped image + text for size]
i dunno I have owned 4 rubicons 2014, 2016 and 2018 and a 2020 PW and there really is no much in common..I think guys like to think there is because of lockers and sway bar disconnect but really they are not the same. Both are fun rigs but different.nothing heavy duty about the Power Wagon
one of the best most capable trucks ever but definitely not heavy duty
the Power Wagon has more in common with the Rubicon than a heavy duty truck
The non-hybrid 3.5 has been around since like 2017. Same motor they use in the latest Land Cruiser, which isn't sold in the US, and a few high HP Lexuses.
Agreed. So for this point if weight is a factor go with a 250 / 2500.The problem with Tundras is their payload. Not a heavy duty truck if you're looking for something that will haul a slide in camper.
I know the OP isn't looking for a slide in, just bringing it up to point out that Toyotas can't do it all. It would be nice to have a HD version of the Tundra.
Surprisingly well, granted we were on flat ground and on the highway mostly. I’m guessing any major wind or hills or stop and go traffic it would be ruff. I got to say I was impressed with it, my friend owns one of the first ridglines and it’s been problem free. He runs a small landscaping business with it, it’s often loaded with sod, dirt, gravel, etc along with tools in the cab and one worker.How did it do?
