    Best choice for daily driver & off-road?

    I'm looking for the perfect "all arounder" for my needs which consist of hauling things when need be (house/landscaping etc), as well as weekend off-road trips. I've narrowed it down to the following vehicles. I'm in no rush, and a lot can happen between now and when I'm ready (chip shortages...

    RAM Rebel

    Nice truck. My uncle has the Warlock. TFL liked it, except at 13:29 you'll see it broke a drive shaft. Yikes.

    Chevy Colorado ZR2/ZR2 Bison - Most Capable Off-Road truck from factory

    What a difference having a front locker makes. Nothing new to those that off-road a lot. Having just a rear is good too, but both is pretty unbeatable. ZR2 with the Duramax is the combo to get in this truck I believe due to the better 6spd automatic.

    Infrastructure

    Recently a group of engineers gave the country a C- for the state of our infrastructure. Why doesn't the U.S. invest in highspeed rail? What are we doing? The estimated cost over the next ten years is $5.9T for needed upgrades to our infrastructure. From a guy I know that was in China...

    Toyota Tacoma TRD Lift Kit Raises Suspension, Keeps Active Safety Functionality

    How reliable is Toyota KDSS?

    Within the 4Runner line, the KDSS system is an option for the TRD Off-Road models, but NOT the Pro. Unusual. The TRD Pro has Fox Shocks but no KDSS. KDSS is hydraulic based. My research suggests it is reliable, but when it is not, it is expensive to fix. (about $4k to replace). Has anyone...

    2021 Toyota 4 Runner TRD

    This guy always does a good job testing various Crossovers/SUVs etc. I was initially surprised he settled on the 4 Runner, but the more I thought about it the more it made sense. Toyota updated the infotainment display and added push start. The 4 Runner has the tried and true 4.0 and 5spd...

    MS Edge is now slow...

    For some unknown reason, MS Edge is a lot slower the last 2 weeks or so. I've tried many of the MS suggested fixes and none have worked so far. Internet connection/speed is fine. I downloaded Chrome just out of curiosity and it's much quicker. This wasn't the case about a year ago.

    Castrol EDGE 0w30 A3 Belgium

    I saw a newly designed EDGE 0w30 A3 made in Belgium a week or so ago. I thought this oil had disappeared? Is it still good? Is there a PDS? Thanks
