My Truck...

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Holy fuck Aaron getting all fired up lol! Nobodys making you drive a minivan hahaha

My personal opinion is diesels are for towing, gassers for daily driving. I had a gmc 3500 and I never worked that plant anywhere near capacity towing a 27ft travel trailer.

Diesels run best under load so if you only yank your shit around here or there then get a gasser

Ur high. :mex: :P

The Eco-Diesels are made to be more efficient but have the guts to carry a load when needed. The F150s tested with the Power Stoke can get under 10L/100km and they have just under a 100L litre tank. Less time at the pump is an added bonus.

I'm not going to tow 6000+ lbs on a regular basis but I want the vehicle for when I do, and if it adds fuel economy over a gasser I don't see why I shouldn't go with one of the turbo diesels next go round.

You start playing with fords you're in for pain dude. The only ones that seem to be without never ending issues is the base model with the 6cyl gas engines.

We lease 200+ brand new trucks every year up here and those things are fucking junk. They're being sent back to the dealerships for service almost non stop...except the ghetto base model versions i mentioned.

We got a few of the new rams...the first dodge stuff I've driven thats not a crappy piece of shit. Not sure about the reliability yet.

The chev 1/2 tons with the 5.3 are by far the best ones made. The tundras also are decent but have retarded box to cab options. Why the hell cant they make a decent box length with a crew?

These trucks get the shit kicked out of them by us. Theyre bouncing down haul roads in and out of the mines. Its a good test range for trucks

Those don't get great fuel economy though, awesome trucks! Honestly for the amount of hard work I would use it for the Tundra would kill me in gas, the 5.3L isn't much better. I'm not going to kick the shit out of a vehicle, it would be 10-20% hard work and mostly straightforward stuff.

Really like the truck Topper posted in the HT forum.

Any word on the Cummins Nissans?

I know diehard Ford/Chev guys who go Dodge because of the Cummins. I know Chev guys who have swapped them into Suburbans, Ford guys who have swapped them into F350's.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

This is a good option, nice truck! Definitely going to add it to the list.

This is why I come here for the advice! :D

How many grills can you fit.

You can get a 750 HORSEY power plant for this sucker.
Can't see a stick shift option though. Where's the fun in that.
85 to 100k--US is a little rich anyway. In a different color, you can get use to the grillssss.
