The Toyota Tundra has received a lot of heat over the years for not being “American Made”. So one of the first things we’d like to point out is that it has been designed, engineered and styled in the United States and to go one step farther its even assembled in the heart of truck country – TEXAS! With that out of the way lets move on to the brass tax. At Timbren we love to find out what these new vehicles (Trucks, Vans, SUV’s, etc) are capable of hauling. The 5.7-liter V-8 engine is strong enough to pull a lot of weight. The big question of course (at least for us here at Timbren) is how is it going to react and look under the stress of a big load. Is it going to sag and squat? Is the front end of the truck going to lift slightly off the ground, losing traction and creating an unsafe driving experience? Well lets look a little closer. The towing capacity of the 2014 Tundra is 10,000 lbs when properly equipped with a towing package. But even that doesn’t tell us much about our above questions (sag, squat, traction, etc.). Well the truth is its hard to know unless you do a real world test. How will you know how much its going to squat when hauling a big trailer or a load of dirt in the bed? Or how much its going to sway with a top heavy load like a slide-in camper? Or even how how much your Tundra is going to squat with a 900 lb snowplow 5 feet in front of the forward axle? The Answer – you won’t! But we can tell you that historically the Toyota Tundra performs and feels better with a Timbren Suspension Enhancement System kit on, but ultimately its up to you. But really who wants to buy a brand new truck and risk it looking weak under the stress of a load? Put a Timbren Suspension Enhancement System kit on it and make sure it doesn’t look like a sissy with a big load on it.
