How Common Are 8' 2nd Gen. Tundra Beds?
To the Mods:
I posted a similar post in the 3rd Gen. Tundra forum, because we're looking at both 2nd and 3rd Gen. Tundras. I hope this isn't a violation of the rules, and I apologize in advance, if it is. Thanks.
We're still happy with our 2009 HiHy, but looking for a full-sized pickup truck, with an 8' bed.
But I see that the 3rd Gen. (i.e., 2014+) Tundras offer a bed that is 8.1', which I assume is 8' and 1.2" long? LOL
DID Toyota offer an 8' bed in the SECOND GEN. Tundras? If so:
How Common/Rare is an 8' bed on 2007-2013 Tundras?
(Or, as Toyota lists them, an 8.1' long bed, which I assume is 8' and 1.2" long? LOL)
(To Toyota's credit, at least they offer an 8' bed on the Tundras--I can't seem to find a single, domestic, pickup with an 8' bed, unless one goes up to 3/4 or 1-ton trucks.)
I don't expect to get lucky enough to find actual production statistics (but one can hope ) but if you could just "ballpark" it, based on your observations of the used truck market, e.g.:
"Only 10% of the trucks seem to have 8' beds, based on my experience...," that would be very helpful to me.
Also, info re: any problems with this bed length, like finding caps, etc..., or problems with the 2nd-Gen. Tundras generally, would be greatly appreciated.
Dumb ("Bonus") Question:
All Tundras (in the 2007-2017) are considered "half-ton" trucks, right?
I only ask because I'm unfamiliar with Tundras and, again, the domestic makers don't seem to offer an 8' bed on any half-ton trucks anymore. (I just wanted to make sure I didn't wind up with a harder-riding, heavier duty truck than I needed, as I only need a half-tonner.)
Thanks in advance,
