Do I dare sell the 4Runner?!

:ohdang: Sorry? Congrats? :iono: Both I guess.... Long story short(ish) - she grew up a religious small town girl, the wait for marriage type. So we did, and it quickly became very apparent that we were not on the same page in the physical aspect. In fact we were totally on the opposite ends of the...

I do too, and it's quite :rage: inducing. Women typically don't care nearly as much as men do about cars, yet I cucked out, and it looks like our man Coogs will too. It's a shame. A lot of women hate minivans… mine included. I think it’s a car guy sig other thing Mine is hard no to van lyfe. :sad: ...

First real trip with baby in the books. Went to the Jersey shore for a week, about an hour and a half away from Philly. The Cmax was loaded to the absolute brim. Dog in the back, mini umbrella stroller, pack and play as a crib, all the baby gear and one suitcase for me and Lisa. Legit couldn't do i...

Bicycle brethren. I’ve still been eyeing the All City Space Horse that one of you suggested I look at. Question though, when comparing the GRX to the Tiagra, is the GRX worth the extra $500? That money gets you hydraulic disc brakes vs the standard mechanical disc brakes and GRX 400 or 600 groupset...

The JCW will drop more in value in the next 2 years than the Bro will. If the JCW values are temporarily higher then I’d off that one. Probably but the jcw is 60% more fuel efficient. And it is worth 1/3 of what the taco is valued at. I got trade in value of 17k for it… I can’t get anything worth a...

It’s going in the Tundra and sequoia. Yep, they are replacing the 5.7 with that claiming that it will get "better mpg" i am sure. While I doubt it'll cause a big change in the real world vs the fake EPA #s. Similar to what ford did by replacing their 5.4 with the 2.7/3.5 eco boosts. Man T...

New Kia Sportage looks nice. Interior is bangin. If they offer the turbo hybrid that the Tucson has it will be a legit contender for next car.

Is the new Santa Cruz a similar size? Being a unibody with a transverse drivetrain, I would think that this would drive more like a car than a truck. I've already seen comments calling for a Maverick ST/RS that comes with the Focus drivetrain, including the :manuel:. Santa Cruz is based off the San...

I can't believe I'm saying this, but Ford is just knocking it out of the park lately. The Maverick is a bold move, but could pay off big time. Ford has essentially made it's cheapest entry level model a hybrid pickup. That could pay off big, this thing is :neat: https://cdn.motor1.com/images/mgl/KP...

Why? You like it, you can afford it, so just enjoy it? Because it is essentially owning the car for next to nothing for 10 months ? Seems like a no brainer. Depreciation is about to come and I have no major trips/adventures ear marked in a few months as I took a long vacay. The way I see it is.. if...

I still think about selling the Taco... I love the truck, but I really don't want to pass up the current value opportunity. I still can't seem to get decent carvana/vroom values.

I hopped on a 54cm SuperSix and while that bike fit me fine in terms of reach (the 56 felt long), the front is definitely low, just like my old bike was. A shop here locally has a 56cm Emonda ALR coming in next week, which has just about the exact same reach as a 54cm CAAD13 or SuperSix Evo, but a ...
