Since when is parking a 200 dollar van in front of elementary schools work?

some of those kids probably raise more money selling chocolate than what you drive

Everytime i see a chinese person in a truck or work truck i think to myself their ancestors built the railroads for less than a penny.

The transfer case started making a clicking sound when the 4x4 is engaged but that's about it.


This gives me hope. I've always been a Ford guy. I used to have a 2005 F-150. But I'm willing to try a GMC or Chevy this time around.

Yeah, I know a guy with a 2013 gasoline Chevy pickup with 240k. It looks super clean inside and out, engine purs like new and he's never had to repair anything major. I couldn't believe it had that many miles until I peeked over and saw his odometer.

Diesel engines tend to last much longer, especially when worked hard because they develop peak torque at much lower rpms and diesel itself is slick, which lubricates moving parts much better than gas.

Whats the appeal behind trucks? Never driven one so I canít speak on that, but what does it offer over a sedan? Besides the obvious reason of being able to transport things.

Have had a couple SUVs and smaller cars with over 100K when purchased. Just have to do homework on the car, have it looked at, and maintenance records help, plus the price has to be right.

Had an explorer that pushed 200k when I donated it, and have a Tahoe that got near 248k before the tranny needed replaced. Bought it with 110k with original tranny, and engine. Id definitely go for a Honda or Toyota as they are easy to maintain.

Transport. Pulling boats, trailers, RVs, etc.

No limitations.

If you have a truck, you can do something as brainless as picking up scrap metal on the side of the road to make money.

Work. Drove an F-150 for a couple years in the mud, snow, ice, dirt etc. and it could handle anything.

Treat it like crap. Throw stuff in the back. Throwing stuff in the bed. Love trucks.

Honestly my favorite part of my truck is the fact that I can just slide into it without having to step up or crouch down... I mean I am 6'8" but that is the precise reason I bought a truck... holy shit my balls can breathe and I don't have to feel like a damn Goliath getting in and out of a car.

That is a big one for me.

Well, that, and the ability to drive over the median, like I did this morning, because some guy was afraid to make a U-turn.

Can't do that in a car.

I may need to trade for one - not necessarily a truck but maybe an SUV. Considering a 4runner or new Tahoe.

The Tahoe is surprisingly more efficient even with the size difference.
