A video and picture compilation of the second generation Toyota Tundra. Only the first couple of clips are mine, they go to the rightful owners. If one of your videos or pictures happens to be in here, send me a message so I know to mention you under the description. If you want to have a truck debate, keep it civil. I don't want to see any trash talking or swearing. Any of that will be deleted.

Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Coal Chute! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
The Obstacle Course begins with a shockingly tall and long slippery hill
descent known as the "first hill" and it ends with a nasty dogleg gully
that's tantalizingly close to the finish line. In between is a treasure
trove of terror. The "lower section" forces competitors to navigate a
360-degree turn through three deep water holes and sand. From there,
competitors travel up a hill to the "upper section" that includes a
deceiving off-camber U-turn (known as "U-turn Hill"), two deep water holes,
and numerous tight turns. This event has a 10-minute time limit, but speed
is the enemy. This is because the course is marked with numerous cones and
each one hit adds 20 seconds to the overall time. If all four tires of a
rig travel outside a cone the rig is disqualified at that point. Safety
violations net a whopping two-minute penalty. Clearly, accuracy is the key
to success in the Obstacle Course.
Think back to those hillclimbs you've done in your 4x4. Yeah, the TTC Hill
Climb isn't like that. The Hill Climb is built specifically for TTC, it's
approximately 600 feet in length and it has an average angle of
approximately 60 degrees. It twists and turns as it winds through the
poison oak and it's peppered with strategically-placed deep holes and dirt
hills. Yes, we added hills to our Hill Climb. The Hill Climb is loose,
steep, and unpredictable. Naturally, we don't let drivers see it before
they run it because that would ruin the surprise. The Hill Climb rewards
those who can think on-the-fly and punishes those who are thinking about
the next event. We allowed each competitor 5 minutes to tackle the hill and
during that time they could stop, reverse, or winch. If a competitor
exceeded the time limit, traveled out of bounds, or violated a safety rule
they were disqualified at that point.
The Mini Rubicon, a staple of Top Truck for years, was a brutal event that
forced competitors to fight for every inch of forward progress. It was
tough and unforgiving. We wanted something tougher. So, for 2013 we
replaced the Mini Rubicon with the awe-inspiring Coal Chute. This event
uses a newly developed area (Rock Rash Ridge) at the Hollister Hills SVRA
that contains an amazing collection of man-made obstacles. Naturally, we
tweaked it to make it exclusive to Top Truck. Our mind-bending course was
approximately 525 feet in length, and included steep walls in excess of 7
feet tall and jumbles of rocks and cement tubes. We even brought in a water
truck and created a waterfall on the final cement climb. The course was
broken into four distinct sections. We threw competitors a curve ball and
allowed them to skip one of the two first sections. However, we penalized
each competitor 10 minutes if they bypassed the first section and 6 minutes
if they bypassed the second section. Strategy was a major player at this
event. There was a 20-minute time limit and safety violations netted a
two-minute penalty. If two of the vehicles tires traveled outside of the
cones the competitor was disqualified at that point.

Extreme Traction-Control Test
As part of the 2008 PickupTrucks.com Half-Ton Shootout, PickupTrucks.com
put six half-ton pickups from Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Nissan and
Toyota through an extreme traction-control test that simulated icy road
conditions to find out which trucks had the best traction control. For more

2014 Toyota Tundra takes on Ram 1500 & the Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Episode 4 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow.
But is it better than the Ram 1500 We decided to find out by putting both
pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup Sequel. Once again both
trucks tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one
of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to
the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of
11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test the
most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to the task of towing a
over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel?
In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,600 pounds. That's
enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this
first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike
Gauntlet see how fast it will tow around 7,200 pounds of old American
Luxury car plus people and gear 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the
Eisenhower tunnel with the help of our friend Kent from (
