What plant(s) built the 1gen Tundras?

I was reading an article (with 2009 data) that referred to the Tundra as the MOST American truck. They cited 80% domestic content in a Toyota Tundra with Ford and Chevy being far below that (55-60% as I recall.) The referenced truck was built in Princeton, Indiana.

Anybody know manufacturing history on the Tundra?

Re: What plant(s) built the 1gen Tundras?

Here's a bit about the Tundra and the T100.

Re: What plant(s) built the 1gen Tundras?

My soon to be brother-in-law built my truck at the Princeton Plant. Been working on getting an interview down there to see about setting up a rally but not many people seem interested in it. The Princeton Plant now builds the Sienna minivans and I believe the Tundra is only produced in Texas as of now.

that article makes me miss my T-100



I loved that truck 5-speed + 3.4 was a legit combo, got a company rig and had no sense to keep it. I almost want to re-badge my tundra as a T-100......

Re: What plant(s) built the 1gen Tundras?

yeah, I would have ditched the Smitty bars and built a set of sliders if I had kept it much longer.

If I'd have kept all my Toyotas I'd need a bigger driveway. I've owned 2 Landcruisers (still have one), Tacoma, Camry, 4Runner, T-100 and my Tundra considering I'm only 30 that's quite a bit.

No worries. I know Jason fairly well and his research is impeccable. I have not had an opportunity to read over the articles yet but I would venture a very confident guess that he has documented or cited his resources so you can quote the information directly from those resources.
