Wouldn't mind getting my hands on a well-maintained old Ranger. One of my favorite vehicles ever.

Or some of that sweet z71 stepside action

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

My neighbor has a full sized Bronco sitting in the drive.  I’m planning to go over and take a closer look this week but it looks pretty sweet.

I would be interested in knowing what % of trucks parked in the suburbs use 4wd throughout the year. Maybe they do when its snowing? I have a couple of friends with big ole trucks who live in the burbs and have probably never even been on a gravel road with their trucks.

I asked one friend why he decided to get a big ole truck (he used to drive a nissan altima) and he said "I just like being up higher than everyone else when I'm driving".

Yeah, very few people I know here that drive trucks have any need for a truck and would be clearly better served with an SUV (cost aside, a sierra denali does cost about $20k less than a yukon denali). opposite of when I lived in KS and there were people using vans and big cars with trunks full of crap to do farming.

There's an AWD option. Neat little truck. Might get one in a few years when the Escape dies.

Trucks are massive now too.. I like to call them pavement princesses. 90% of the people that have full sized pickups do not use them as a truck

It's true. My ego wants a full-size truck or suv but I really have no need for one. Escape does everything I need. Fiance wants me to get a 4WD. I can't remember the last time my FWD traction control engaged.

Another pet peeve, they all have bed covers on their truck and never actually use the bed. Like one will pick me up to go golf and I try and put my clubs in the bed but he's like nah, just throw them in the back seat.  :shakesfist: :shakesfist: :shakesfist:

But hey man, you totes look cool up there riding high in your pavement princess truck.

The question is windows on the sides or no?

Man I’ve seen some cool crap people have done to vans to make them very liveable.  You can park them damn near anywhere overnight too.

A friend bought a brand new sprinter van and is converting it to a camper and have a long ass road trip planned this summer. I think it would suck but I get the appeal. Also they have windows
