We need, (no, deserve), a Tundra Power Wagon

I spent a week off pavement in Arizona in my son's new Dodge Power Wagon.
Shocks and suspension soaked it up
E lockers front and rear
Sway bar electronic disconnect
Hidden winch
Hill descent
Decent tires

I can't bring myself to buy a Dodge, but can't Toyota throw me a bone and at least offer a rear e locker?
A few of us do go offroad.

IT'S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE

If Toyota offered a Power Tundra it would probably be comparable to the dodge price wise, (at least 10K off of dodge stickers).
I could and will add on many of the Power Wagon features.
I think Toyota is missing a substantial market by not offering what many of their competitors do.
It was a tossup between the F150 (eco boost, 10 speed auto, and rear locker) and SR5 TRD for me but it would have been a no brainer I had a few more options to choose from.

Toyota offers many of those features on foreign market 2008+ Land Cruiser 200 Series, and some even come on the USA spec units. Again, the Tundra is based on the LC. They have KDSS swaybars, which disconnect in a sense. Hill descent/crawl control. The elocker is available for the 9.5" axle... which truth be told is more than adequate. The front axle can be converted to the traditional mechanical elocker, or possibly the new style used in the rear of the Tacoma. The factory Aisin A1000 winch comes on some 200's, its construction makes much of the aftermarket look silly. There, now don't you worse?

The tundra is far from being based on the 200 series.

True for some things but try to add an aftermarket e locker for $420 (F150 factory add on).

Can you add elocker to a base work truck for that price?
Or do you need a heavily optioned truck?
When I got my truck, it was 1 of 4 available. 1 of the others had the tow package but little else. The others were all part of a failed attempt to sell a truck with the wrong options for my area.
I've made good deals on parts but I still won't be able to match the 700 option price for tow.
But overall I made a higher model truck for less money. I've got most of what I want.

Seems a lot of people like to talk about adding more gears to the transmission. Personally I like the six speed, it is perfect. To me more gears means more problems and the transmission will be constantly shifting into that perfect gear, creating more heat and wear and tear. Other than the poor fuel economy of the 5.7 it's not that far off of the real world numbers of the competitors in a like for like standpoint. I would like to see some more horsepower at the same few economy.
And as far as power wagon options on the tundra, of course that would be cool but it would just jack up the price up, along with the fact that Toyota only produces a limited amount of tundras as to not have huge amounts of overstock driving the price up and the value down. Although I wouldn't mind a factory rear locker and winch option. But to be honest I probably wouldn't order the truck with those items being that they would overcharge the crap out of you for them. Cheaper to do it yourself

No, no it's not. The only thing they share is the engine. That's it. Different frame, drivetrain everything.
