The engine weights are so close as to be negligible between the 2.7, 3.5 eco, and 5.0. As pointed out, CGI block vs aluminum blocks is one part. The 2.7 equipped trucks usually end up with the...

I always wonder why for how great Toyota's are they all have a service department at the dealer that is every bit as large and busy as the Ford dealers in this area. I'll just leave it at that.

Not jumping on the OP, just pointing out that for around $200 all in, he's legal AND safe if electric brake control is needed.
