Tundra Catalytic Converters
I was test driving some trucks on Friday. At Carmax they said they have to park their Tundras up near the front door because of the problem with cat converter theft. Apparently the Tundras have 4 cat converters on the exhaust. That, plus the high ground clearance seems to get them targeted by thieves more than other trucks. Interesting... Anyone here have a problem with that?
Right now I'm considering Tundra and Silverado because they both offer a locking rear differential in 2WD.

I have heard of the Tundra cats being stolen. It's alot more common than you'd think. Last year at my work there were 5 brand new Honda Elements that had the cats cut off. The more ground clearance you have the easier it is. In the last few years auto manufactures have been stamping serial numbers on the catalytic converters. They are a hot item for scrap yards and recyclers.

I read that 4 runners were also popular with the crooks. I think a sawsall would set my alarm off.

If you drive both trucks in the same day you'll prolly be in the Tundra by evening!! I rent full sized trucks for work regularily and the Tundra is best on a long trip followed by the Ford f150. Don't love the Chevy and Dodge should stop making that POS 1/2ton truck. I understand the need for the locker though. Surprised Ford doesn't offer it. Aftermarket electric locker would probably be pretty high.
