I read that yesterday, kind of sounds cool, but I don't know if that 2.8l would be a good match over a 3.9

I would love to see some manufacturer grow a pair to bring a diesel compact truck to market. It seems that every manufacturer is sitting on the fence waiting for the other to jump. I was hopeful that Mahindra would make it to market first. Not that I want an Indian-built truck, but it would spur domestic manufacturers to finally pony up and compete.

Agreed Chuck. The local Yota dealer told me that Toyota had everything lined up for a diesel. They even went to classes for the new diesel and when fuel prices went sky high last go around they dumped they idea. Not sure if it's true but I would love a Yota diesel. Those of you that have ridden in a newer Tundra know what I'm talking about.

The Tundras have weak frames and don't impress me. I'm also trying to move toward only owning domestic brands. I don't care if the Tundra is built here, the money goes to Japan. Besides anyone who had ridden in a new Tundra and then ridden in a 2010+ Ram will walk away from the 'Yota. I'd like to see the Ram 1500 get a V6 Cummins if they ever breathe life back into that idea.

So whats the difference if the money goes to Japan for US built toyotas or if the money goes to itally "FIAT" for a US built RAM? Either way the money is gone to another country.
I wouldn't discount a cummins powered Titan, they are a tough rig chassis wise but the body isn't the greatest for abusive situations. the cabs are large and comfy also. But for general everyday use I think it would be ok although as stated above probably a bit short in sizeengine wise. but the power #'s are not too bad though.

Yeah valid point. The whole Fiat thing escaped my memory. Ok a Cummins powered Titan would be a decent 1/2 ton. I'd rather have a Titan than a Tundra though. The Frontier is a tough little truck too.
