I did find another. Found a certified '14 2500HD Z71 gasser with 19K miles. I'll burn more gas than if I'd gone with the Duramax, but I won't be nervous about my warranty running out. Looking forward to its first tow when I pick up the trailer after some dealer repairs in a couple weeks.

I'm hoping my Equalizer hitch head will extend down far enough for a level trailer since this sits up higher than my Tundra.

I had an 03 triple 5 and the guy who bought it from me is still transporting cars with it. I sold it with 95K on it and last time I saw it, it was at almost 200K, new tires, and was only 1.5 years after I sold it to him.
I found a picture of my 95 with my camper hooked up when everything was brand new and I started crying haha. great truck and engine. I think I would swap my 14 for it right now.

Here's a photo of the new truck. It's a 14 and from what I can tell it has the 3.73's, which odd since 4.10's are standard for this year. For my load I think it will be fine. Most importantly I'll have more stability and don't have to think much about what I carry. I like that at high rpm, the engine is quieter than the Toyota at a similar rpm. It's a good fit for us, a heavier truck yielding better stability, slightly greater range, longer bed, more room for the dog,

I have a 2013 and it has 3.73's with 4.10's optional. The 2014 I looked at had 4.10's but I never asked or checked if 3.73's were available.

Heres some axle rpo codes. Just look at the sticker in your glove box and you can see what codes match up.

Oh yeah....congrats on the new truck!
Good choice!
After working at several gm and toyota dealers, gm vehicles are several steps up from toyotas! Regardless of what the general consensus about jap "quality" is. That isn't the case anymore. Toyotas are severally lacking.

Anyways, have fun with the new truck!!

GT4 and G80. So, that confirms 3.73.

The Tundra is engineered in Michigan and assembled in Texas with 70% of the parts made in the US and Canada (45% for GM trucks). Kelley Blue Book lists the Tundra as Best Full size Truck for Resale Value. Hardly an indication of lacking quality.

whether a good truck or not, a Tundra can't compete with any brand of 3/4 ton truck. Maybe Toyota should step up their game and come play with the big boys.
