Ahh I've been looking at trucks for a year and can't commit. Pops just bought a fully decked out CrewMax Tundra 4x4 and he loves it, he upgraded when his previous gen Tundra hit 240,000 miles. A...

Yeah it's a gorgeous color. I looked for a red interior white exterior Z51 for about 6 months before moving on.

Good advice here. My old man had a C6 Grand Sport (in Jetstream Blue!) for a couple of years, he purchased it used, was flawless, I looked at several Z51 cars before buying something else.

...what? That was an optional model offered - the 4a-ge went from 112 to 115 hp, what's that.. a 2.7% increase? So the current bump is 2.5%, sounds about right for a Japanese brand. Otherwise it's...
