Quality/design problems with the Tundra are well documented. If I were buying a truck, I would go with an F-series, too.
That said, I think it's absolutely outrageous that GM and Chrysler were not allowed to fail. I expect Chrysler eventually will, and probably GM, too, but not before they've cost taxpayers billions. The greed/corruption of unions and management at both companies is an absolute disgrace, imo. Don't even talk to me about the jobs. No company exists to provide jobs for workers. Companies exist to produce products. Full stop. (I feel the same way about Citi, B of A, etc.: should have been allowed to fail. Too big to fail is bull****.)
As for Ford, I don't like their cars, but I hope they do well. They did the right thing by not taking a bailout and they deserve to be rewarded for that as long as they produce a decent product.
