I traded my Tundra for a used 2011 F350 6.7 SRW and as much as i would tout the strong Tundra engine the diesel is much better/stronger. Majority of my reason to trade up was payload went from 940 avail to almost 3450. Truck weighs around 8000-8100 loaded and has 11500 GVWR.

As an earlier poster said pulls my 8400# trailer at 65mph in 6th gear at around 1600 rpm and rarely down shifts
