I knew there was something off about youDamn I'm embarrassed as a Ford fan, and current Ford owner. This made me LOL tho, "18.7 mpg mixed is what my 2012 is getting right now. Thats with 5.0 and 3.31 electric locker."
I'm sure if I dropped my Tundra from 4.30s to a set of 3.31s I'd get some pretty terrific gas mileage too. But that great mpg would come at the cost of get up and go, and towing. I'll just have to suffer with the crappy mpg, and the space shuttle hauling side effects that come with them. I am jealous of the e-locker tho
The F150 and the Tundra were my "last two standing" when I was shopping. I like to hear the candid/honest feedback as it really does seem that I couldn't go wrong either way. I have a long history with Toyota vehicles NEVER leaving me stranded. That coupled with I think the Tundra is much better looking swayed me.I have both, and like them equally for different reasons. The Ecoboost is amazing, mine is lifted with 3.31 gears, and(sure ill take a beating for this) but it is faster than the Tundra, stock with 4.30 gears. Nothing like the sound of a v8 though. The mileage hype from Ford is a joke on the Ecoboost, 14.8 lifetime average for me(all else aside, that is good mileage for a heavy lifted pickup). The way it makes torque is why it is cool, max torque at 2500 rpm and pretty much flat the rest of the way. Eco is for itching my need for speed, $400 dollar tuner and your running mid 13s. The Tundra is getting Camburg coil overs etc., and I have to have an 8' bed with the ability to haul the family in comfort, it is one of the only and best choices for this. Build quality, duh, there is no comparison, Toyota. Just my 2 cents.
