Default Biggest Baddest Truck on the Market?

http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...res-i-am-club/

Never heard of a domestic pickup having this issue! they're selling the "biggest baddest truck out there", but the tail gate is made of beer cans!

Most are made to handle 4 wheelers driving into the bed VIA ramps. They shouldn't have that problem. Looks like an oversight by people not quite familiar with all the uses of a truck.

My Father in law'* '95 Tacoma has had 500+lbs loaded on and off the back of it and driven around with a good portion of weight resting on the gate and it'* held up just fine. Guess they just don't make 'em like they used to

In real truck country......there are no Toyota'* or Honda'*.

Cummins is King.

Duramax is Queen.

Cummins in a Ford is cherry.

A modded out Chevy is wild.

A HEMI is.......well.......it just is.

A big X2 here

Except out here, the Duramax is king

I see a few Honda Ridgelines and Toyota Tundras out here, but they are in the city area... NEVER on the jobsite


As far as the tailgate? I know many many people that use ramps up to the tailgate to load quads, snowmobiles, dirt bikes, or whatever else they can get up there and have never had a problem

Hell, I had an 85 Nissan pickup. Tiny rusted out truck, I could jump up and down on that tail gate like a trampoline (no shocks left) and it had a little flex, but trusted the damn thing with my life. I loaded up that thing with so much crap, put probably 800 lbs on that tailgate once...NO problem.

That thing is just a disgrace.
