THANK YOU ALL for you opinions and input. As it was mentioned many of these trucks are very similar now so it becomes a factor of who has the best package for me as Brian stated.

However, I have to admit that I am very curious as to what the Dodge, Chevy, and Ford ratings will be next year when they adapt the universal standards for weight/tow classification. Toyota has alrady adjusted and lost about 1,000 lbs as a result, so it will be interesting to see how the others are affected.

Again thank you all for the input, from buying american (which we all try to do as much as possible, given the situations), saftey concerns, and just good old opinions.

Those universal standards are something I was going to mention. Didn't know if they were in effect yet, but apparently they are not. Kinda makes think that maybe those outrageous claims for towing and hauling with a 1/2 ton truck are just attempts to get as many trucks sold as possible before those standards DO go into effect.

Outlandish or not the standards mean its still legal when the DOT pulls you over, that is unless you gross more than their homemade ratings. I personally don't like to push it with tow ratings as the PA DOT have been really cracking down.
Like I said I am interested to see what happens when all the truck makers test with the same standards, who will win then?
