    Why is rublutoo allowed to use racial slurs? Why is he allowed to threaten others when they expose his lies? Why are Tundra owners froze out of their topic when they are rude back to rublu? Good luck on this one now. BTW, Bobbie, just give me your address(not a bogus one) and I WILL come on out and do the compare with Franklin(a fantasy character created by you). Guess I hit a nerve when I exposed your game(see1047). I didn't mean for you to start weepin' and moaning like an old woman, I'm just tellin' dem facts, now!

    From Edmunds Truck Test "as a 2000 model,...Topping its pedigree is an optional 4.7-liter, I-Force V8 ...this powerplant makes 245 horsepower and 315 foot-pounds of torque and can be mated to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission."

    I think this is a mistake, but does anyone out there have any knowledge of the V-8/manual transmission combination being available?
  • tp4unctp4unc Member Posts: 437
    NO manual with the V8.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Sorry you be upset at something I said. I not
    used any racial slur I'm aware of anyway? If I
    used one not knowin it, then I apolize to any who
    may have taken offense to it now, even you. Its nice to see you can post with out the dirty foul mouth! Maybe you startin to mature now? This would be good. Once again, I not intend no insult to any person, just talkin on trucks now. For rwellbaum2, come on by too
    Charleston, just ask about, we do the compare anytime, if not, you just keep it up, and Franklin can make it out to that Reseda, you know?
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Just the typo on this now. If you want the
    stick on them V8 motors, try a Chevrolet,
    you can get that 4800 or that 6000 with a stick.

    If you visit Ask for 'Libby'

    I'm currently negotiating a deal for a Tundra SR5 4x4 Access Cab. They seem to be consistantly $1200-1800 under MSRP.

    I've been looking at new trucks (Silverado, Sierra, F150) for towing. Currently own (and love) my '98 4Runner, but have become aware of limitations for pulling anything over 3000 lbs. After reviewing many comments on the various bulletin boards about the above trucks, I'm going to stick with Toyota and their Tundra. Would like any comments on hauling trailers (not 5th wheels, yet).
  • framehogframehog Member Posts: 8
    The Tundra is not available in a manual V-8 in any configuration. Manual Transmission is only available with the V-6.
  • atoyotatoyot Member Posts: 58
    Hey buddy, talk to me about a future limited slip or locking differentials(SP). Any news, pictures, rumors??? Need me to test one??? I dutifully volenteer my services to test one in and around Houston.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Why are them limited ones not available with
    that factory hitch? Is there GVWR less then
    the sr5 one? Why are some of them dealers
    refusing the hitch add on them limited ones when
    requested? Some mentioned total weight as the
    factor, but this cannot be, since the Chevrolet
    already over that limited one by 400lbs. Does this mean that the limited ones have less haul/tow rate than that sr5 ones? What say on this? Thanks.
  • sharkbait1sharkbait1 Member Posts: 19
    I appreciate seeing your additions to this Tundra topics, the one I ordered has a build date of 10/18, next monday. May you and all your co-workers have a great day that day.

    I was wondering, is there only one production line where every vehicle goes through, or are there several lines? Just curious. Also, are there tours open to the public in the Tundra plant as is the Honda Goldwing plant is open to tours in Marysville Ohio?
    Again, much praise for you and your co-workers.

    i just found this one
  • SporinSporin Member Posts: 1,066
    "tojo" is a racial slur toward Japanese and Japanese-Americans. It is akin to using the "n-word" towards African-Americans.

    ADMINS---Why is this man allowed to use this word over and over again when it is an obvious violation of the Participant's Agreement?
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Hey dummy:

    Tojo Hideki (1884-1948), Japanese leader during World War II (1939-1945), born in Tokyo. An extreme militarist and advocate of total war, he was appointed prime minister in October 1941.

    Your apoloigie of your ignorance is accepted, now back to them trucks. What about that limited hitch?
  • eusasceusasc Member Posts: 91
    Don't know bout them LTD's. My Sr5 has a hitch. So I don't care. As for reliability, fact nothing more. You're whining again. :-) Your apologies for your ignorance on those facts is accepted. BTW, that is about dem trucks.
  • eusasceusasc Member Posts: 91
    I do believe name calling is a personal attack i.e. "dummy" and is in violation of the users agreement. But then you knew that right?
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Know about them sr5 ones now, same as you. What
    about them limited ones? Hearin from the whine babys on this one, but would like an anwser too!
    Shout that answer loud, as to overcome the cryin
    in the backgound! Anybody out there no why them limited ones havin the factory hitch rejected now?
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Take it to #1129 albert the sensitive one, unless you got that answer on them limited hitch that is.
  • SporinSporin Member Posts: 1,066
    Yes, that is the orgin of the word, I am sure we all appreciate your history lesson.

    The word "tojo" has since filtered down from the name, to become a racial slur.

    Most racial slurs are drived from common words, terms or names.

    As far as you childish name calling goes, again, I refer you to the Participant's Agreement. (
  • eusasceusasc Member Posts: 91
    Don't care 'bout them LTD's with no hitch, why do you want an answer 'bout that? Got that cheese yet? Can you answer me why them shivys come with self destructing frames though? Good luck with that one.
  • eusasceusasc Member Posts: 91
    Hmmm, I do believe you're the sensitive one. Most whiners I've known are. I just be talking the truth 'bout dem trucks. No sensitivity involved. Just facts plain and simple.
  • artpartp Member Posts: 156
    Saw you comment and definition of "tojo".

    Was wondering if you'd like to call my Passat a "von Ribbentrop" or a "Göring".

    Your grudge is obvious. This isn't about them trucks. It's about Eisenhower, Hitler and Tojo.

    You're almost certain to own products made in one of the former Axis countries, you hypocrite.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    The orgin of the word? It is a common surname long before that. What about all them runnin around now with that surname of "tojo"? You really squeezin on this one! How bout them Toyota exec with the surname of "tojo"? He has the name that insulted all them others now? I don't think so. I think you just runnin at the mouth without knowin the facts on this one, sonny. You just assumed tojo meant something evil and sinister, now you embarresd to find out it a very common surname? Next time, get your facts straight and then post, dummy. Yes,
    dummy as in you to dumb to know what tojo means. If that word to much for you, then how bout ignorant one on orgin of tojo.
  • SporinSporin Member Posts: 1,066
    I'm not embarassed at all Rube, I believe I am right, and if I am wrong, at least I can sit comfortably on the fact that my heart is in the right place.

    The way you use the word is wrong...I think that you use it as a slur. I'm just taking it the word in the context you are using it.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    What happened to anwser on that hitch? Eough talk on tojo word, I not use the tojo word again,
    if we can get back to talkin about them trucks!
    Sorry artp, sorry eusac, sorry sporin, ect...
    If that word that upsetting to you, I drop it just
    for peace. Anybody got the anwser on that hitch?
  • cwirthcwirth Member Posts: 169
    Rube, name calling is uncalled for, even if you are correct that is no reason to call someone names like you do. Why don't you just leave this site. You ARE not welcolmed here. You keep bringing up the same questions, WHO CARES!

    Just admit that you have the biggest piece of junk automobile that was/is ever made and get over it.
  • eusasceusasc Member Posts: 91
    I got a hitch on my SR5. BTW, Tojo don't bother me. My surname is Schilling. Told you before. (having a reading comprehension problem there ole timer?) I just talk 'dem facts on dem trucks. Got an answer on dem self destructing shivy frames? Good luck with that one.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    I not own automobile, just a truck. Sorry.
    As far as the name callin, I over look Rube
    since I know you mean no harm in it. Lots have
    asked about that hitch, not just me now. I be
    hopin that framehog can give the anwser on this one.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Them names reveresed in Japan, so that surname same order as our first, got it now? I said I
    drop it for peace, so it be dropped now.
    I know them sr5 ones got the hitch, the question is on them limited ones. Not heard no tells on Chevrolet frames now, you be the first one.
  • SporinSporin Member Posts: 1,066
    I wonder if Toyota doesn't offer the hitch on the Limited models because of some marketing strategy? I assume that the Limited model, even more then the other Tundras, is marketed toward the "personal use" buyer because it has leather and all the goodies.

    I haven't found ANY mechanical differences, and I doubt the slight weight increase has much to do with it. Stranger things than this have been done in the interest of marketing. Just a thought.
  • tp4unctp4unc Member Posts: 437
    That Limited one does not have enough power to carry the weight of the HITCH itself because that Limited is weak and will break(the SR5 CAN carry the hitch because it does not have the additional weight of the Limited's badge). I hope this answers the question to YOUR satisfaction. Now, please go away. You should be out driving your Chevy.
  • eusasceusasc Member Posts: 91
    Well now, if you spent more time on dem shivy topics you might know 'bout them broken frame problems. Check them shivy topics out. It's in there. So I'm not the first one on that there fact. BTW, I got a hitch on my SR5. Oh yeah. Do you have that there leaf spring problem on dat shivy of yours?
  • buzzman2buzzman2 Member Posts: 12
    I thought this was a forum for discussing Tundras,
    not personal problems. Why do we have to put up with the imature etnic comments. Sorry some peaope just don't get it!!!!!!!!!
  • pchengpcheng Member Posts: 162
    Hey,I never had a problem with you till now. You can ask ALL my friends, and they will tell you that I don't get offended easily, especially about my heritage.

    I can say this: Your defense of TOJO was the biggest pile of BS I've ever heard. By the way, my last name is Cheng (if you haven't guessed my hereitage is Chinese). Having grown up in the states, I've heard them all (Chink, China Man, Kung Fu Boy, Banana Joe...more than even you can come up with). (By the way, both my parents were born in Japan, so I guess you can say I have Tojo Parents.)

    You and I both know that you weren't referring to the past Prime Minister of Japan, any more than when someone calls me Chink refers to the sound of China cups being brought together.

    If I called you White Trash, I'm not referring to the great football player Reggie White.

    If you screw up, then own up to it and learn from it. What you did was as silly as calling somebody "Spear Chucker", then justifying that by saying "Well he was in Track and Field in High School wasn't he?"

    This topic is getting pathetic. I propose (again) that a new topic be opened to opinions of Tundras vs Chevy's (or Big 3).
  • barlitzbarlitz Member Posts: 752
    Edmunds must have for 2000 an F150 along with the Ranger, what happened to the Tundra?
  • hall2hall2 Member Posts: 40
    What is a propeller shaft? My owner manual says to inspect and lube the propeller shaft (4X4). Where is it located?
    Thanks for an expert input.
  • kentekente Member Posts: 28
    I am shopping for a Tundra and this will be my first pickup. What is better over or under the rail bedliners?? Can you put a tonneau cover on a truck with an over the rail???? How easy is it to put on and take off a tonneau cover???? Thanks for your help.
  • arkie6arkie6 Member Posts: 198
    I would assume that the manual is referring to the front driveshaft. This connects the 4X4 transfer case front output shaft to the front differential. The front driveshaft is typically splined to allow it to vary in length. There is usually a grease fitting at this splined portion of the shaft to keep it lubricated.

    There may be some grease fittings on the rear drive shaft u-joints, but I doubt it since they are probably not regreasable like most vehicles. The splined portion of the rear driveshaft, which allows changes in driveshaft length to accommodate the rear axle moving up and down is typically at the transmission output shaft (or on 4X4s its on the transfer case output shaft) and is lubricated by the transmission or transfer case lubricant.
  • sharkbait1sharkbait1 Member Posts: 19
    pcheng, I read your previous post and agree with you. I want info about Tundras.

    As far as people of different nationalities, I make a judgement of individuals themselves, and great people are great people, and Adam Henrys are Adam Henrys. (ask any cop)...., in all nationalities.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Frank, how come them limited ones won't get that
    factory hitch now? Does your dealer install the
    hitch on them limited ones? If so, how come some
    won't, if not, how come you folks won't? What is with them limited ones and that hitch? What say on this Frank?
  • gportergporter Member Posts: 14
    I am looking for a fiberglass tonneau cover that will give me 18+ inches in depth. the depth of the box is 16.7. Does anybody out there have one installed? Please measure it & respond with brand, and mention with or without bed mat. Most dealers have no spec's on the Tundra.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    These folks may have what you be lookin for, they have that one with a little extra height too it, instead of them snug ones that be so common now:

    Check the one they call LSII series now.
  • 3peasinapod3peasinapod Member Posts: 26
    Yes, Limited Tundras do come with hitches.
    Port installed. Have seen many here in CA.
  • 3peasinapod3peasinapod Member Posts: 26
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    That be odd. Can ya get that option code on one of them west coast limited hitchs?

    This is what edmunds tells on them hitches:

    DH Towing Receiver Hitch (All Except Limited)

    Got that tell here:

    Would sure like them option codes off of one of them west coast tindras now. This hitch mystery
    just gets stranger and stranger now.
  • 3peasinapod3peasinapod Member Posts: 26
    DH-Hitch, Towing Receiver (pio)* sr5 w/v8 Engine, & Limiteds (n/a sr5 w/v6 engine) ( n/a w/wiring harness -9z)

    Information from Kelly Blue Book.
  • rubluetoorubluetoo Member Posts: 175
    Is that meaning that the hitch is available on
    them limiteds from that factory? Some here been
    havin trouble gettin that hitch, even from the
    dealer. This is a strange one now!
  • powercatpowercat Member Posts: 96
    I'm starting to understand why you see so many shivvy's in the junk yard's. When I owned one, long ago, I guess I just didn't want to admit the truth. Now that I have my Tundra, the light of truth seems ever so clear.
    True tell, I promise. Driving down the road the other day and noticed a plume of smoke billowing up from the middle of a field. Noticing that all of the cars were pulling over up ahead, I decided to do the same. Out in the middle of this field was a late model shivvy (hard to tell the year through all the flames) set ablaze like a worthless pile of trash. Seems he was tryin' to do the tow (small trailer too) but no go so go boom! Overheated his tranny and sprayed fluid all over the engine and, well you know the rest. Know what else is funny, one of the doors fell off while we were watching, guess they still glue those doors on!

    Wonder if blue what's-his-name is still visiting this topic, he might enjoy this tell.
  • cwirthcwirth Member Posts: 169

    Now that you have the answer on the Limited hitch, you can let it go. Why do you keep bringing this topic up? Are you interested in trading in your broken down Chevy for a Tundra Limited? If you are that is probably the smartest thing you will ever do. The Tundra is by far the best truck made today. Good luck on this one now.
