I dunno... you paid more for a 2WD F150 than I did for my Tundra. Fan boys and egos? Did the Tundra become a status symbol when I wasn't looking? Along with your numbers you're going farther and farther into silly-territory.
You paid less... Good for you, I'm guessing they are not equally equipped. Here in Central Fl the Tundra cost a couple thousand more than the domestic trucks.
Do tell..what am I being silly about?
As for It being a status symbol... Have you failed to notice the blind loyalty amongst Toyota owners on this site, or in general?
