Tell me I'm crazy

Please let me know if I am crazy or not but I just bought a new TRD Pro in cement last week. I came from a 05 Silverado Z71, while driving it around this weekend I noticed that the Tundra did not feel as torque-ie as the Silverado. Even my friend said he noticed a difference between the two trucks. I looked at the numbers and the Tundra should feel like it has more torque but it didnt.
Tundra specs vs Silverado specs
381 hp @5600 rpm 295hp @ 5200 rpm
401 ft-lb @3600 rpm 335 ft-lbs @ 4000 rpm
5645lbs 5008 lbs

I know the Tundra still needs to be broken in I'm only at 450miles and I understand that the suspension between the two trucks are different but it just seems like there should be a noticeable in torque with my butt dyno.

Put it in tow/haul mode.

You obviously have a defective Pro, are you sure the dealer didn't swap out the grille and bed from a Limited or Platinum? They may have even sold you a SR5.

Silverado pulls more torque at lower RPM's so you'll feel more power running at lower RPM's, but overall Tundra has higher numbers. I haven't seen the DYNO graph for the silverado but I'm assuming is has a higher slope initially and levels off.

The off road suspension also makes it feel so smooth you don't realize how hard its pulling

You're crazy.

What gears does your Silverado have? Mods? I once owned a 2004 Silverado Z71 with a 5.3 and while it was a really good dependable truck, it was never a powerhouse. My 2008 V6 4runner could walk it pretty easy but that was OK because, after all it was a truck. I haven't lined them up yet but my TRDP feels much quicker than my 4runner at any speed and definitely feels more powerful than my Z71. I haven't even pushed the tow/haul button yet. I can't wait to hook up the trailer and see how that feels as well.

Seeing threads like this makes me so happy I have an earlier Tundra. My '08 is scary fast. I don't have any desire for a super charger.
