    I have your truck, with a topper which matches the tumblome (the slant-in) and height of the cab. 'Have measured carefully, very carefully. If you pack it full, using lateral ranks, and so the top (glass) portion of the tailgate closes against a matching "slant" of wood, you can squeaze in about .68 cords.

    BTW, it must be seasoned pine, and even then, you will be at GVR (which occurs when the rubber safety pegs are just short of the leaf springs, on the SR5 model.) With hardwood you WILL over-gross the vehicle.

    I'm always amused by the pickups on craigslist that hold "almost a full cord".

    Hey Dexter thanks for the reply Does your truck have the TRD offroad package? Mine does and was wondering if that will make a diff regarding how much hardwood I can haul because of the heavier springs.

    Mine is a box stock sr5 with NO trd package. TRD springs will make it not sit as low as mine, and the shocks are stiffer too, so it'll handle better, but it doesn't change the load rating (if my memory serves me.) Tundra doesn't have a full-floating axle, so it's a matter of axle-load more than springs. I'm thinking of getting a wood trailer for the weight carrying and the convenience (if I can scrounge a good place to keep it.)

    Regards,

    Dexter

    When I was growing up my Dad had a 1972 chevey 3/4 ton. With ladder racks and plywood we could get 3 chords on it

    Must be face cords, there's no way to get 3 full cords in a pick-up.
