Thumbs up Tundra prove-it tour..

Sounds interesting..

Toyota marketing must really be out pounding the streets and tracks to prove they can handle it. Here's another marketing strategy they've got going.. this was yesterday here in Sacto..





AND managed to get this nifty little tool too. It's going in my '07 Tacoma.

freebies..?

Say WHAT..? I thought I was the only one who got something for nothing..? bummer. lol..

I drove by the 84 Lumber location today and there didn't appear to be much going on. I didn't see that "test truck", so it must have been out doing it's thing. I snapped 2 pix of the place if anyone is interested. Not much to see. PM me. I'll keep them for a couple of days.

No way anyone would have 10K on a little ass trailer like that. Its easier to pull a little trailer than a 28 foot one with the same weight.

sorry whoever you are.. but it's a fact! I'm SURE Corporate headquarters for Toyota knows all about it. Who do you think is paying that bill..? It's a very clever and safe and VERY LEGAL marketing strategy.

It doesn't matter how hard or easy it is to pull.. it's still 10,000 lbs.

So what you are saying is most people are oblivious to what I said? I didnt say there was anything wrong with it. Marketing people have all sorts of clever ways of "working" the truth.

No.. I wouldn't say that.. based on the replies of my post... it seems as though they're first response is just "wow.. there's a new marketing approach".. viewpoint.

You did have a good point too.
