If this question had been asked of me several years ago I would have said that except for a few, the Toyota truck was hated and not thought highly of here. I bought my first new vehicle which was a Toyota pickup in '90 and working at the plant I heard nothing but how it wouldn't last 30,000 miles and it would be junk. You bought a Jap truck? That went on and on for awhile until I hit that 30K miles, and then 50K, 100K, 150K, etc. and with no troubles. It didn't take long for Toyota vehicles to start showing up in the parking lot and people shut their mouths when the mileage kept climbing until that little truck had over 485,000K miles on it. I also had a 4Runner and it had a little over 325,000 on it when I traded it on an FJ Cruiser and eventually got over 203K on it before I traded it on my Tundra.
In this area there are a lot of the Big 3 diesel trucks for the oil/gas fields and other industry along with private vehicles towing horse trailers, toy haulers etc. That's pretty much normal, and won't change much. There are a bunch of Tundras around here too along with Tacoma being driven as private vehicles and I see more all the time. The big change I've seen in the last few years are a lot more Tundras being used by smaller companies that do electrical work, carpentry, service stuff for other bigger companies, basically small contractors. They've been trading off their Big 3 trucks and going to the Tundra. I rarely have anyone say anything bad about me owning a Toyota anymore.
