    Trucks.

    I don't buy Ridgelines or any of the other castrated trucks and SUVs out there. I'd go get a AWD mini-van and have a better vehicle. Or just get a car.

    I spend a good deal of time trading in high line cars, but I daily a truck.

    I was mad about not winning 1.6 B, but this made it better. I will be buying this if it goes to production. Cummins V8 310hp and 550lbsft. This drags it's nuts right across the face of the Raptor and TRD Pro.

    IDK, bed looks a little small for such a whopper motor.

    It should be able to fit at least two sleds with skis and gear.

    Maybe if you tore off that junk and did a flat bed with tool box and a locker in da rear.

    WTF is up with those head light?

    Without truck nuts I'm just going to assume you're compensating for something.

    So that would be your commuter car? Interesting.

    I don't do much desert off-roading these days but there are definitely Raptor owners in CA that do. That roided Titan XD seems a poor choice for pounding sand...the regular XD is a heavy pig, so this version will be a super pig.

    Meanwhile the new Raptor is 500 lbs lighter than before and has a ten speed tranny for decent Hiway mpg.

    That or a R8. This gets better MPG.

    I also own farm land/grows. Place in Silverthorne. Rental properties. Drive the Pro-4X of the Titan now. This is bigger, nicer, and Diesel. I don't go off roading for fun.

    Cummins. That is all.

    There are a million of Raptors in CO. I am not interested in the Ecoboost at all.

    This is compensating. I've got one of these for hauling trailers. It's stock. Like all my DDs.

    What's up with the ultra-LED-collapsed-sun lights on the top of beefed up trucks these days? I got to experience the full blinding effect recently when some Ed Hardy driving one of these trucks came up behind me on a back road. Makes a full array of KC Highlighters seem like a candle.

    Nothing worse than a unlimited wrangler. Jacked up, and LEDd out with 50k worth of shit on it. Infested with them here.

    I drive in snow a lot. The switchable AWD / 4WD from Ford interests me. You get snow in CO?

    Ha! New term right there. Thanks for the daily chuckle... Nothing like hearing a guy at a cocktail party refer to his crossover SUV (usually a white Audi) as a truck. Classic.

    Real men don't refer to pickups as trucks.

    New Nissan Titan looks amazing.
    Actually, so does the 2017 Ridgeline.
    No longer stuck.

    That's some of the dumbest shit I've heard.

    Does this say Pickup?

    Actually, it will eat less of them, than my current Titan. 20% better MPG and 12,300 lb tow capacity.

    My 6.8 V10 F350 loves Prius.

    Man, that's annoying. I'm sure they're awesome on back roads, but some of these goons feel the need to utterly blind everyone going the opposite way down our windy little two lane highway. Some of those things are unbelievably bright.
