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.

Fucking POS Titan I bought is in the shop with six idiot lights on in the dash. Left turn signal out and idles high when the headlights are on. Grab my ankles and get ready to sit on a sack of frozen peas :twisted:

Why would you buy a Titan?

I’ve had my Chevy Silverado for 5 years now, and not one thing has gone wrong with it!

Chevy Silverado’s may not be the prettiest looking trucks to pick up the high society ladies in but they are the lowest maintenance of them all

Fucking exhaust manifold blew a hole in it and the pipe bent and melted the wiring harness. $1500 punch in the eye. The guy also said the left front wheel bearing is shot. He wanted another $1000 for that. Nissan parts of course. Yeah no I’ll go to Lordco and get buddy to do it for half price :evil:

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

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

Chevy fuel pumps used to be a weak link after 200k and their front ends need work prematurely as well. Other than that they're pretty reliable

Was just gonna link this. I had to replace my front coils, lower tie rods, and balls, saved $400 buying everything from rockauto. Even coming from the states with the exchange.....I was also able to grab aftermarket performance parts instead of Nissan OEM.

I always prefer to buy and support local. But when it's not even close, how can a guy do that?

Yeah, why not go with Chevy then? I mean, if you're gay and coming out of the closet, just pull that band-aid all the way off right.....

Winter tires.

I need something that is tough as heel for working in the bush but decent on ice.

Love the Goodyear DuraTrac for off road. I'm on my 3rd set and can't see running anything else but I need something for icy roads as well as off road.

Don't want studs, chaining up is a last resort. May get another set of DuraTracs and have them siped.

Suggestions.

Blizzak WS80 is fantastic on ice and pretty durable for me. 3rd winter now and lots of highway miles. I recommend them
